I know I should be professional all the time, but I'm just not. I dress up or down depending if I have any client meetings scheduled. My goal on any given day is to find the right combo of comfort and 'designer trendy' so that I don't want to tear things off at the end of the day, but I'm presentable.
Yesterday I had no meetings scheduled. Outfit: jacket & tank top with skinny black jeans and boots. At four PM my phone rings. I get pulled into an in-house 'rehearsal' that lasts for three hours and includes the three biggest players in my company.
Today, you'd think I'd have learned, but no. I put on a hat and some dangly earrings (the ones my Dad made me from hardware store pieces), a tunic top, skinny jeans and black boots. So, of course there was a surprise client meeting with our partner who'd flown up from LA. At least I hadn't gone full comfort with a fleece or something.
It's getting very tricky to think how I could juggle the timing to not really mess up my current job if I take the new one. Two major deliverables next Friday. And then my current CD is on PTO that next Monday. I haven't heard anything, but I know they are slammed at the new job, too.
Maybe I should just wear my heels tomorrow and assume I'll have four meetings. That way I won't have any.
