One of the hard things about my current mailroom job–aside from the sheer physical exhaustion–is that I don’t get to dress up. I’m on my feet all day, and the packages are not particularly clean, so I have to wear clothing that’s easy to move around in and that I don’t mind getting stained. This leaves me with a fairly small set of options.
It might seem like such a little thing, but I really miss the everyday, low-level dressing-up that comes with the office jobs I’ve had.
This outfit is from my last office temp job, in the registrar’s office at a university. It was near a lovely park that was perfect for taking outfit pictures on my lunch break.
