Since my law office is so small, I work at home about 95% of the time. Which rocks for a lot of reasons.
But it also means I don’t often have a reason to put on pants. Literally. I go days without seeing anyone but my husband– so yoga pants and a t-shirt are kind of my jam (to my credit, I at least buy cute colorful and fitted v-neck tees, rather than wearing shapeless oversized free logo tshirts).
And then there are days like today, when I had to go into my office for a quick meeting with my boss.
And B gets home and…
B: Wow, you look nice today!
Me: aw, thanks hun!
B: You look all like… professional.
Me: … I’m wearing jeans and a tshirt? (albeit with some lace detail at the neck, but a cotton tee nonetheless)
B: Still, its more dressed up than you’ve been in a while on a weekday! You look nice.
Me: Thanks… I… think…?
On the plus side— my husband has now been conditioned to be impressed by jeans and a detailed cotton t-shirt. Low standards do work to my benefit here considering my general lack of interest in dressing up most of the time.
On the minus side— It’s apparently been a while since I’ve worn clothes on a week day that are about equivalent to my everyday high school wardrobe.
I need to think on this a bit more….
