I’m lucky enough to work in an office that has, among other amazing perks, a lax dress code. It gives me the freedom to experiment with my style and dress confidently, which is something a lot of my previous jobs did not. Usually, my outfits are pretty simple, a sundress and sandals in the summer, sweater and jeans in the fall and winter – dressing up is a lot of work! – but sometimes I like to dress up a little more.
I recently picked up this plaid miniskirt from Uniqlo, and could not wait to wear it. I wanted to give off a Cher Horowitz vibe, so when I instagrammed a pic of my outfit and my best friend texted me, “you look like Cher in Clueless,” I was thrilled! It’s always nice when your efforts are recognized!
It just so happens that on this day when I was really feeling my look, my coworkers and I also decided to take advantage of the beautiful Indian summer day. We ate lunch outside and took a long walk through the Boston Public Garden because it was just too nice to be indoors. We didn’t get a lot of work done, but we had a really great afternoon together. Coworker bonding is so important!
I’m always in awe of how beautiful the Public Garden looks no matter what time of yearOne of my coworkers took these pictures for me, but our other coworker kept making me laugh!
I hope you’re all as lucky as I am to have a job you love! Love, Me
