Do you wear skirts? What kind? How long are they?
I wear more dresses than skirts as well. I generally tend to knee-length skirts, which are appropriate for both cheeeeeerch and molding young minds.
I wear knee length/a bit past the knee. What is the length you feel most comfortable in?
Knee length feels comfortable to me. I have a few which are a bit shorter, which I can sometimes pass off at work if I wear them with tights. It has been a long time since I wore something really short out in public.
Are jeans your standard daily clothes choice?
Well, I work six and sometimes seven days a week, and I only wear jeans on “casual Friday” (poisonous phrase!). When I’m on my own time, I do prefer to wear pants.
Does your work environment require a more formal dress style?
The cheeeeeerch does, though it steams me that that’s true because you should SEE what some of the “faithful” wear to church.
The molding of young minds requires “business casual” – while some of my colleagues wear jeans and yoga pants(!) to work on a semi-regular basis, I have discovered that both parents and students take me more seriously when I dress nicely. (Also, since I am the same height as many of my students, it helps me to stand out in a crowd as a person of authority.)2 weeks ago
