It's taken many years, but the atmosphere at my place of employment has relaxed. With a new CEO came a new set of much-needed office "rules." He made it clear from day one he wasn't here to win a cover on GQ. The dress code relaxed.
I can certainly embrace that. As I approach the end of my years of gainful employment, I don't want to spend any more money on dresses. Now it's more about buying separates that will be wearable as I settle into a new, more home-based lifestyle.
But today I wonder if I took a step too far. Knowing I would be in the office by myself the entire day, I delved deeply into what used to be known as the casual Friday look.
Shorts, an okay button shirt, and Reeboks. Maybe a bit..... I don't know.... too far. It's not my usual office attire.
Then again, the city is working in the street outside my office. They hit the water line and now there's no water in my building. Maybe it's a good thing I'm wearing walking shoes. I may have to visit the local gas station.
