This spring, I am in a different head, career and closet space. While I will be leaving my urban setting and WOHM (work outside the home mom) status in coming months, and shifting to a more rural environment and WFHM perspective, at the moment, I still have a job where I need to be mindful of what I wear.
My current position is quite visible, visual and often messy (Head of Primary Art/Teacher Trainer) yet I have an audience of children (not my own) and grown-ups for whom I must dress for. I can get away with a flexible, somewhat creative work wardrobe. No one expects me to facilitate a paper mache or fruit stamp painting session in a fitted pencil skirt or my cropped silk pajama pants, even if I secretly want to. Nor can anyone realistically imagine me performing a modern dance workshop or leading a musical procession a la The Sound of Music in my Prada stilettos. At the same time, no amount of artsy fartsy could justify a work uniform of yoga tights and over-sized tunics alone. Unless of course I was a yoga instructor or meditation guru.
And yes, I know its spring, and I am a devotee of the retro styled frock with yummy fresh juice-blend colors but those are likely to come after I transplant myself to the countryside. For now, this Homesteadista, is happy to say, “Hello slim fitted pants, simple chic silhouettes, cool personality-revealing personal touches and an unapologetic love of black!”
So this is what I will wear to work this spring…
