It’s uniform time at work. That means we all order new uniform polo shirts. Some people order basic, primary colors. Others try to get as many outlandish colors as possible–hot pink, bright orange, lime green, and so on.
I do something different. I only order neutrals: White, black, gray, and brown. I always order them one size too big, too. Why? Layering. :D I want to be able to wear a thermal or turtleneck under my polo, and a sweater on top of it, before putting on my coat…I get cold. And since my base layers are black, brown, purple, and pink, I want to get polos that will go with everything.
Still, when the polos come in, there’s always that one coworker…
“Ugh, gray gain?! Do you have ANY colors? Your uniforms are so boring! Don’t be afraid to be yourself!* You should have fun when you get dressed! Why aren’t they more form fitting? Get some color next time!”
* She has actually said that, multiple times. Don’t be afraid to be yourself. LOL. I’m pretty sure choosing a shirt based on how easy it is to wear over a base layer and then pile clothes on top of it is the most Jen thing I could possibly do. :D
