My coworkers are baffled by my clothing. It can get a little dirty where we work, so they wear tee shirts and jeans. I wear dresses, blouses and skirts, and jeans as well. "I don't know how you can wear that here," they say. "I'd be too afraid of ruining it." Look, I'm not wearing anything fancy. I'm wearing cotton and jersey in less casual cuts. Most importantly, all of my clothing is machine wash.
