WHAT TAYLOR LIKES: TO WEAR TO WORK
My Own Dress Code
Most people wear workout clothes when they are working out. I, however, will parade around in my workout attire before, during and after my daily exercise. I sport black leggings to class, happy hour, and dinner because they are more comfortable and convenient than my “real” clothes. I HAVE NO SHAME. NONE. ZIP. Just think about it. Envision plush, four-way stretch ultra-light leggings made with moisture-wicking properties designed to keep you dry as you make the trek from your car to the grocery store. This is pure bliss.
Given the way I feel about athletic apparel, you can imagine the utter shock I went through when my current employer told me about their company’s dress code and how I have to say farewell to my beloved body hugging capris.
"Welcome to corporate America," they said. You have a choice of wearing a suit with a skirt or pants and a business dress. Additionally, if you so desire to wear a pencil skirt, and chafe in between your legs, it musn't be too tight and should fall a little bit above the knee. Also, don’t wear denim, ever.
There were a couple thoughts banging around in my head when I was correlating my closet to this dress code. 1) I am (ex) college student so everything I currently own is tight and short 2) Do I own a suit? Or slacks? Or a shirt that isn’t a “T-shirt?” The answer: No.Thus, I went out shopping and snatch up this dress for basically nothing at Belk’s in Rockwall, Texas.
I am blessed to work a Hunt Consolidated, Inc. While they seriously encourage professional dress, they appreciate their co-workers taking their own creative license and making the dress code their own. I paired the dress with a matching sweater and necklace to unify to look and dress it up a bit. Mind you, I am no fashionista so this is a huge come up compared to the wardrobe I was wearing (or still wear when I am not at work).
Untill Next Time,
"Your life is happening now. Make it amazing!"
