Happy Thursday, lovelies!
I've been having a lot of conversations with various people regarding "appropriate dress." Perhaps it's because of some of the internship interviews we've been booking lately but it sometimes seems like people don't know how to dress appropriately for the occasion.
Before I go on further, I can't emphasize enough how I'm a firm believer in experimentation and wearing whatever makes you happy. That said, I also think it's important to be mindful of your surroundings and the occasion. I don't think that wearing a mini skirt to a job or internship interview is appropriate, even if they do show off your fantastic legs. I think there's a time and place for certain clothes and it takes some tries to figure out what items are good for where.
This is also an interesting topic for me because a lot of times it segues into a conversation about school dress codes and language. What is "school-appropriate?" What is "distracting?" I would completely agree that a lot of the language used to define school dress codes are rather sexist and tends to targets girls, but I also think it's important for everyone to come to school dressed in such a way that respects the teachers who usually take the time to dress professionally and do their jobs as well.
What are your thoughts on appropriate dress?
