Dress For The Job You Have

You know that saying, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have”? I always find it kind of a limited advice, and in my case, downright counterproductive. If I dressed for the job I want (freelance writer/script doctor), I would wear nothing but ratty old T-shirts and sweatpants all day. So in the meantime, I’m going to dress for the job that I actually have and want to keep, thank you very much.

P/S: I’m actually surprised it took this long for my matchy-matchy brain to pair this shirt with this skirt.

    I hear you there Salazar. In my case, I’d be sporting ripped pants, a tattered shirt with buttons missing and socks that don’t match (all black of course) for my desired job (writer/artist/postcard-greeting card designer) as I would probably never leave my place and I’d work at home. No one would see me.

    But since I wish to keep my cozy little job going at the library of 10+ years, I will wear no such thing. Though some people seem to be able to get away with what we mentioned above and they barely get a slap on the wrist for it. What the heck?!?!

    And as always, you look very professional Salazar. Great outfit!

    Are you levitating in that last photo or is that an illusion?

      I’m going to let you in on a secret – I’m totally a wizard who can levitate. Shhh! (Kidding, it’s just a well-timed jump :P)

        Love your answer! If I could choose one super power to have, I think I’d choose levitation. It would be cool to float around and save my knees. 🙂
