There are times when I worry that I dress too weird for my workplace. Today I selected a wool blend jumpsuit that calls to mind Rosie the Riveter gone lux. I paired the charcoal piece with sky high heels (so I'm a creature of habit, sue me) and a layered necklace. The reason I say it might be too weird, is my clients' running commentary on my ensembles, which range from "Wow, you look like you're ready to jump out of a plane" to "That's a weird outfit". The latter client is known for getting to the point quickly.
I am currently transferring to a more creative position within the same company, but feel like I might need to pull in the reins on my weird outfits (harem pants in the corporate world might not be the best idea). I decided to do a little virtual window shopping, but can't stop leaning into looks that are loud and fun. What I have arrived at, is, well - I gotta be me. I'm not comfortable wearing someone else's styles, so I won't. If I had my choice, here's what I'd wear on Day #1 of my new job:

Or maybe this:
My armor is mine because it suits me.
