Today is another Board Meeting day (second and fourth Tuesday of each month) which means I have to be dressed as close to "in code" as possible. This skirt isn't in code...and I don't think the tights are...and more than likely this shirt is too bright of a color as well...but this outfit is closer to the dress code than my usual ones. My boss is pretty adament about not wearing any "bling" so I make sure to adhere to at least that part of the guidelines when I know we have meetings.
|I love the lace details on this blazer!|
A few people have asked about my work dress code because I mention it a lot, so I figured I should go into a little bit of detail. I might include a box in my sidebar too just so it's easily accessible.
Here are the basics of my corporation's dress code. Some of these are due to the fact that the company is Seventh-Day Adventist, others are in the name of professionalism. Either way, I think they're too strict but I wasn't consulted so my opinion doesn't matter. :)
*No patterns unless they are so subtle that they appear to be solids from a distance
*No bright colors
*No animal prints of any kind (there goes my dress...and my shirt...and my skirt...and my booties...and my shoes...and my other shoes...)
*Necklaces must be a single, thin strand of either silver or gold and have no more than one small pendant
*Earrings must not extend past the earlobe (so, only studs then?)
*No open-toe shoes (not even peep toes!)
*Belts much match or be in a neutral coordinating color with the outfit
*Tights/hose must be a neutral or flesh-toned color with no patterns
*Any nail polish must be a flesh-toned color
*Hair accessories are limited to small barrettes or hair clips in a shade that matches the hair color
Hope you're all having a great week so far! Don't forget to enter the giveaway!
