Outfit of the Day (OOTD) | Work Clothes Style

OOTD| Work Style









A good friend of mine told me that it is best for us to dress not for the job that we currently have, but for the job that we ultimately want. I smiled keenly and responded, "Hmmm, I don't think I want a job that requires I wear 3-piece suit. Or one where I have to where dress slacks and dress shirts all the time. I want a job that allows me to wear something comfortable." Where I can bend over, twist, lunge, and interact with the people I'm serving. A job in the community. Where I can get my hands a little dirty. 'Cause suits are SUPER itchy. And not very flexible.

And I am so thankful  and BLESSED that I have a workplace that embraces this. Where we can express our individuality without the pressure to fit a certain look. Of course, professional meetings and conferences call for a tidied-up appearance, but I must say that it is SO nice to have my everyday clothes for work be ones that I can wear both on and off the job!

Items:
Boots: kohls.com (they carry large sizes! I'm size 11)

My favorite song of the moment (I love to play this on my drive to work):
