I was discussing this with one of my daughters today. Her position is that it’s our new dress code and everyone is doing it. She shared that her salespeople had ball caps on while on Zoom with customers all the time. Personally, I have a call with an important customer in a few minutes and I just ran upstairs to put makeup on and change my sweatshirt into a collared shirt. Will we ever abandon our new dress code? What will we do with all our other clothes? What should I wear to the living room today?
On the first day of staying home, I noticed that one of my favorite clothing stores was having a giant sale. First, let me say I did not need more clothes. Second, I love them. I bought a few blouses for the spring. Guess where they are? They are unopened, sitting in my bedroom for a time when I can wear them. It’s not a weather issue, it’s a look-like-a-slob-at-home preference. And last time I Clorox-ed the whole kitchen, I got bleach on one of my many black workout pants and a shirt. I don’t want to wreck any other things.
