This week (and next) my company is allowing all of us to wear “casual” clothes every day. This treat is usually reserved for Fridays only; but for 2 weeks in the summer (usually the week of and the week before July 4) and for 2 weeks in the winter (usually the weeks of Christmas and New Years) a daily-casual-wear pass is granted… and I love it.
Some days I like getting dressed up to go to work; but other days, it is really nice to be able to not have to iron an outfit, or putz with nylons, or be concerned with blouse cuts – but instead be able to simply throw on a nice pair of jeans, a cute shirt or sweater set, some easy jewelry, comfortable shoes, and head out the door.
Today I was at my desk all day [which is an anomaly!], so it was extra-nice to be able to be genuinely comfortable while I worked on a computer for hours at a stretch.
Hooray for casual day!
