Day 278..#Casual Wednesdays..
Today I woke up as usual..jumped in the shower, got dressed for Uni and sat down to eat my breakfast.
Now..I don’t usually dress up to go to Uni, but I do like to look nice, so I make a little effort 🙂
Today I had classes in the morning, so I started work at 1:00pm.
I got there and one of the sabbatical officers that works in the University Union commented on “how casual” I was looking today.
Like I said before, I don’t dress up..I’ll wear heels (the shoes I blogged about last week!) on occasion and a nice weather suitable outfit, but I won’t go over the top.
So he told me I was looking rather casual then made a comment about how he told me those shoes would start to hurt me eventually. I laughed.. Funnily enough..I have these conversations all the time, what people don’t actually realise is that I’m a pro in heels..
Yes. A pro 😛
We finished talking and I went into the back to hang up my jacket.
Then someone else came to me and said..”Oh..wow..you’re looking rather..casual today?”
But the tone was like they were concerned for my well-being. Again, I laughed. I didn’t think people noticed what I wore that much! I’ve only been working there for 3 weeks..clearly..I’ve made a wardrobe impression!
I had the same conversation with a few other people and I’ll tell you what was strange. The people who are usually dressed in suits and look very formal..were all dressed very casually.
The first guy that spoke about “how casual” I looked is ALWAYS in a suit. I’ve never seen him not in a suit. Today, he wore a tracksuit. The hoodie, the sweatpants AND the trainers!
Another woman the same..It was really confusing..but at the same time normal.
It was like an unofficial casual Friday. On a Wednesday 😀
Here is a picture of what I wore today:
See..it’s pretty standard!
I wore that top and jeans with some Converse trainers and a brown oversized cardigan..it was so comfortable 🙂
Tomorrow, I’m working a morning shift from 9am to 12:30pm..depending on the weather..I think I know what the outfit will be.
I reserve the right to go to work looking “casual”..whatever that means! 😛
P.S. I also reserve the right to ❤ Chuck Taylors!
