Why I need to let go...

Working for an IT company, I get away with a relaxed dress code at times...well, most of the time. Last week, much to my RN educator roomie's dismay, I was dressed in my finest denim for my work day and I think he said something about hating me for being allowed to be so dressed down. But when you crawl around computers, interact with databases and web pages and play with phone systems all day long, sometimes comfort is a bonus over wearing a power suit. Today though, I felt like being almost business appropriate...almost. I dug into the back of one of my wardrobes and found a pair of dress pants and put em on just to appease the Bay St. crowd who act like I don't belong at times with my jeans and blazers. Well, I should have looked at the tag on these pants because I spent the entire walk to work yanking up my pants including almost falling over at Yonge and Dundas, one of the busiest corners in TO, when I attempted walking and pulling up my pants at the same time (note: must take multitasking off of my resume). So Today's lessons learned:
  • Size 30 pants do not fit a mouse
  • Ass cracks are not business appropriate
Looks like I have some shopping to do this weekend.

Funny, my FH works for an IT company and he worked for another one before that. The other one made him dress "business - casual" and he hated it. It was one of his deciding factors to go back to his old job where he gets to wear jeans.

I have to dress up every day and most days I don't really mind because it helps me put on the right "hat" for my job. But somedays I really just wish I could wear jeans and a comfy sweater.

I put on my only pair of black pants I had left yesterday and way too big now, so shopping pour moi aussie! I didn't even question not getting rid of them...GONE.

*laughs* Nobody seems to appreciate some good old butt cleavage these days....actually, kinda glad that trend went out the window!!!

I don't have to get spiffed up for my job either...some days I do...I like the option...I am our resident computer person (even though I only know a little from fiddling around...I just work with a bunch of people who don't understand computers) and guaranteed if I wear a skirt it's the day they want me to crawl around on the floor!!
