|My official work photo. And the suit I'm wearing now.|
I had a meeting shift on to today's schedule, and so the new dress and cardigan I'd been planning to wear were no longer acceptable. I actually discussed it with one of my bosses, and he thought a cardigan would probably be fine, but I felt it wasn't up to our standards. He suggested I tell Hillary Clinton to give up her pantsuits and embrace the cardigan, and then I might not feel like my suit was necessary. Hillary, call me, let's talk.
I'll be honest: my suits are hot and not very comfortable to wear. I hate the high dry cleaning bills they require. I'd rather just be judged on my words and not what I'm wearing. But...I do have to admit the suit has its strengths. I've had some really good meetings in these suits. I do feel fairly confident wearing them. It does separate out that today is a bigger day (even when it's three days a week).
Guess I'll keep suiting up. (But Hillary, seriously, feel free to call, anytime.)
