casual Friday

I still don't get the concept of casual Friday. I mean, does coming in sweats really make you more productive? I don't dress any differently on Friday than any other days, and the work fashion vibe is already so laid back that the next step might be to come in pajamas. A friend of mine visited family in Anchorage recently and said everyone there wore PJs so it's a distinct possibility. I'm guilty of "wearing pajamas as loungewear" but only at home. I don't think I can handle it at work.

I like casual Fridays, but sweats never figure into my wardrobe, ever.

I still dress nicer than I might on the weekend, since I am at work. But it only means something if the rest of the week I am wearing a skirt or nice slacks and jacket or whatever. The part I like about Friday is that I can pull a shirt and pants from the pile of decent-but-not-dressy cloths and not have to worry about excessive laundering or ironing.

If there were no casual Friday, I'd be fine, since I like wearing nice clothes and I can still be comfortable in dressier attire.

It's like casual Friday here every day...I like wearing nice clothes too, just not suits. I guess I'd characterize my style as a couple of levels above casual Friday, just not suits.

The only reason I like suits is that they suit me! I don't wear them often but at my meeting in DC last week, I really enjoyed it. I felt so spiffy and professional.

The only brand that really fits me well is Kaspar but I'm always afraid I'll end up like someone's PA.

I don't do casual at work. No. And I think we ought to have a dresscode here. Seriously. I would like to outlaw all baseball caps.

wearing PJs out of the house
It's a fashion (or it was a year or so ago) for teenage girls (in south Orange County at least) to wear PJ bottoms to school. I'm not sure they're actual pyjama bottoms or expensive trendy flannelish pj-patterned pants that look like pyjamas but it looks odd and vaguely inappropriate but it's not against the school's joke of a dress code.

Then there's the... I think it's called a camisole?--style top that is more or less trendy too. Satiny-looking and lacy edges. It looks like sleepwear, or "sleep"wear, and I don't think teenagers oughtta be wearing that stuff at school. It's probably just a SoCal thing because most other places are too cold to be going to school nearly naked.

Bethany is 2 1/2 years old. I shudder to wonder at what sorts of clothing might be acceptable or fashionable that she'll want to wear ten years from now. I want the 1950s to come back!
