Work Clothes




 {Outfit pictures taken in Papa John's after an 8 hr. day spent at school, followed promptly by a quick trip to the dentist due to a toothache and then to the grocery store. I'm not actually allowed to wear the brown belt at school, but it adds a lot to the dress, so I put it on for our post-school errands. Otherwise, this is pretty much what I dress like 4 days a week. If you've seen any of my other outfits, you know that this is not the way I like to dress.  And our pizza was taking a while so Angel wanted me to take a picture  of him mocking my posing style. Honey, you forgot to smile! I always smile in my pictures!}

For as long as I can remember, I have thought that I'd like to choose my ideal career based on what kind of clothes you got to wear to work. Based on this criteria, any and all jobs requiring uniforms are out. Certainly all jobs in the medical industry aren't options, because I don't like scrubs. I mean, with all the time I've spent in uniform stores waiting for Angel to find the perfect scrubs, I have chosen which cute scrubs I would be willing to wear if I were forced to wear scrubs (these), but really, I'd like to avoid anything resembling scrubs as much as possible.

For a while, I thought a job in business would be a good option, because I do love a good pencil skirt. But true business people in "power jobs" seem to have a poor opinion of bright and gaudy colors, so it would be hard to let go of my fuchsia, turquoise, and purple.

Cosmetology doesn't seem like a good option, as I feel completely smothered by the strict black or white, no black-and-white patterns, dress code at my school....

What I really want is a job that allows me to wear whatever the heck I want to. Bright colors, crazy combos, belly-dancer scarves, and all. So, all of this leads me to believe that my ideal job really is that of a blogger. Or an eccentric but best-selling author. Or a movie star, but that one seems a little less likely. Or....a professor!! Professors really can wear whatever they want to, at least the ones at my college did, and they had some awesome style. Oh man, I'd make a great professor.

What would be your ideal job if your only qualification for the perfect job was that you would love wearing the clothes appropriate for the job?

  1. The brown belt does do a lot! But I feel like even without it you did a good job of personalizing an all-black uniform. Love the bracelets! And the boots! And the face!

    The main reason I want to be a teacher is so that I can dress like Miss Frizzle. My backup plan is to be a recluse and wear pajamas all the time.

  3. That belt really does make that dress so much better.

    You are so funny. I wanted to be a lawyer before because then I thought I'd get to dress really well while at work. LOL. Nevermind the years of schooling, studying and then the mind numbing hours of boring office work. I'm a creative person. I could have never been a lawyer.

    Having your own business does allow all the freedom in the world to dress however you like. When I do shows is when I get to show off my style the most.

    Doing lots of design work on the computer or in my studio means that basically you don't leave your house so no one sees you anyhow. It's a double edged sword really. That's why fashion blogging has been good for me.

  5. Love the belt with the dress. I love being a mom, and I get to wear what I want so long as I don't mind the occasional dirty fingerprint or bodily fluid!

  6. Goodness, only being able to wear black and white would be SO HARD!!

  7. Why aren't you allowed to wear the brown belt at school? And those are pretty good scrubs... for scrubs. It's neat how you look good in colors and good in black. You pull off everything I've seen you in SO well! My dream profession, based on the clothes, would be an elf-fairy.

    1. Because anything that's not black or white is against dress code. I think they are trying to break our spirits or something, but I will not be broken! :) I love your choice of profession!!

  9. If I had your waistline, there would no end to the belts I'd wear! I love your workwear. I'm pretty sure you are after my own heart with those boots.

  10. Angel cracks me up. :) I love your boots - they make you look so bada**. Also, I just generally want to steal your wardrobe. No big deal, right?

    A job solely based on clothing... hmm... maybe a ocean animal trainer, because then I'd only have to worry about a wetsuit.

  11. I love your boots, and that belt is cute and looks great with the dress!

  12. I love this... whether or not you have to wear it 4 days a week. It looks fantastic on you!

  13. Only black and white at school? Yikes, that sounds harsh. I'm pretty sure I'd be in the interior design field if I chose a profession based solely on wearing what I wanted to. I'd be pretty famous with my own show on HGTV, and guest appearances on Oprah. My signature look would be fresh and colourful, just like the interior spaces I create. I would have assistants do all the heavy lifting and dirty work, so I would always look non-creased, and magazine ready. {I have way too much time on my hands}

  14. So cute! My dream job has always been to own a bookstore! I could wear what I want, be surrounded by thousands of books, and maybe have a little cafe in there :)

  15. It seems interesting that people in creative professions have somehow put this stifling dress code on themselves. My brother in law loves bright colors too, and is a makeup artist and has to wear black all the time. They're creative, they should be able to wear whatever. hmmm based on the dress code I'm not sure what job I'd want. I like not wearing my normal clothes to work, so even though I don't have a dress code at my job and could wear whatever I usually wear more dressy stuff because then I can come home and feel different if I change my clothes. Plus I like looking nice in the dressy oufits.

  16. Hahaha Angel!!!! That picture cracked me up. The good thing about my job is we can pretty much wear whatever we want minus sweats and pajamas. I love having the freedom to dress up one day and wear a t shirt the next. But the career of an eccentric best selling author? That I can get behind.

  17. despite chafing at the all-black, you make it look good.

    if i were picking a dream job based solely on clothing, it would probably still be a doctor (though i want to do clinics, not hospital), or a teacher. my professional aesthetic is rather pin-up-meets-practicality, and i like my pencil skirts and high-waist trousers and funky shoes. i definitely had some fun-clothes-loving teachers growing up, and as long as it's a professional silhouette and you put a white coat over it, you can get away with a lot as a physician. =)

  18. I love my dress. It is what i expected, very nice. This is coming from a person who normally doesn’t wear dresses. I would definitely order from this company again.
