Stamped Out

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

Normally I write my blog posts in the evening but lately I’ve been writing them in the morning. The tough thing about that is that I am NOT a morning person. Never have been and I doubt I ever will be.

My alarm goes off at 5AM but I don’t usually drag myself out of bed until 6AM. And the first hour of so of my workday is just lost time as I start at my computer screen trying to wake up.

Of course, I don’t want to come to work later because that would mean having to stay later. Such a dilemma.

It’s also a dilemma to figure out what to wear this time of year. You have to check the weather everyday, plan for air conditioned offices and possibly sweltering outdoor temperatures. For some reason I’ve been avoiding wearing my utility jacket like a cardigan even though it’s definitely light enough to do so. But last week I decided that I wanted to wear my new library due date tee and needed something to throw over it when in the office. Hence the utility jacket.

This tee is super soft but, warning, it runs SMALL! I’m wearing a medium and probably could have gone up to a large. It’s much more fitted than some of my other tees so that’s probably why I’m not used to the sizing.

Jason asked if the numbers and dates mean anything but I don’t think they do. They’re just an homage to the days when libraries stamped the due date on the card in the back of the book. Now most libraries use little printed out slips of paper. Which, I suppose, is nice since it gives you an automatic bookmark. But I fully admit I miss the stamp.
