Currently, I work in the biotech industry. That means I run around in a lab coat all day, in constant fear that I might accidentally dribble bleach, ethanol, sulfuric acid, cells…whatever icky, smelly thing I happen to be working with that day, on my clothes. I have to worry about getting dirty, working with and lifting heavy equipment, and standing/walking for hours. Because of all the icky things I deal with at work, I can’t dress as nicely as I’d like to.
On my especially “frumpy at work” days, I wish I could dress like an actual adult, in cute tweed pants, silk tops, and a pair of my beautiful high heels. That’s right, I’ve actually thought, “I wish I worked in an office…a cubicle sounds heavenly! Imagine all the cute clothes I could wear!”
I’ve bought a few pairs of dress pants, but I don’t get to wear them very often, and I feel awful just letting them hang there in the closet. So here’s what I would wear today, if I worked in a chic little business casual office, where the only heavy lifting I would need to do would be retrieving my TPS report out of the printer, and I could wear open toe shoes without the fear of dripping any bio-hazardous material all over my toes…*sigh*
