It’s the end of my week of well-dressed homeworker posts. I’ve had great fun writing these – hope you’ve enjoyed reading them! I’ve also thought quite a lot about image, clothes, dressing up, etc. And I’ve learned a few things along the way, too!
First off, today’s outfit … I started off the day in pajamas and fleece for a pre-breakfast transcribing session, transferred to yoga kit for the breakfast-to-yoga period, then moved up to my slightly-less-than-shabby set of comfy clothes I bought to homework in back when I started doing this one day a week.
No Horror Pinks for me this week … but here’s a photo of them anyway!
What are you wearing today? What’s your most disreputable homeworking outfit?
What have we talked about?
On Saturday I introduced the series and shared what I was wearing.
On Sunday I got inspired and started to plan the week’s posts
On Monday I shared my levels of clothing depending on context, and everyone else talked about this like mad!
On Tuesday I talked about my transition from office suits to home office tracksuits, and asked you about your journeys …
On Wednesday I explored with you whether we’re hired for our appearance or our brains. Does it matter what we look like? And I shared a pic of myself “au naturel”.
On Thursday I asked what you wore when you got out of the house to networking events, etc., and realised I had a uniform for that, too!
… and today I’m rounding things off and seeing what I can draw from the whole process!
Which has been your favourite post?
And what have I learned?
I am really comfy living the way I live and dressing the way I dress, and I’m comfortable with that, too.
We all get cold and we should all wear more wool, silk and thermal undies.
We all have pyjama days if we can get away with them.
What’s all this “getting away with it” mentality anyway – we’re not hired for our looks, we’re hired for our brains!
Most of us like it best this way.
We are still able to get out of the house, dressed in a conventional / tidy / decent manner that sometimes doesn’t even involve any fleece!
Have you learned anything from reading these posts and comments?
And finally, a small gallery …
Matthew aka HistoryNeedsYou likes to relax at home in something comfy. Or maybe this is what keeping standards up is all about!
Liz from KidsonTalks sports a kimono for homeworking, and says it gives her lots of options for layers.
And here are the famous SLOVES! How exciting! My friend Sian’s Mum made them for her. She (Sian, not her mum) popped round for a cuppa yesterday and posed for a photo in the sitting room. I’m glad I got them in! Any knitters out there like to be commissioned to make me some?
