I’m working as a school counseling intern right now. First time I’ve gotten back in the work field since I started grad school about 3 years ago. Not gonna lie, I felt kinda bad going back to work, even part-time, with such a little baby at home…but you gotta do what you gotta do. I’m trying to get this degree so I can peace the fuck out of grad school. So with work comes the dreaded “work clothes.” I used to dumb down my style and throw anything together at the last minute because I just didn’t care. This time around, I figure why the hell can’t I be myself at work too? No I can’t roll up in there with a cropped top, but I can still do my thing style-wise.
I used to feel like people would think I was doing too much if I expressed myself through style at work. I mean, my style can get pretty “out there” at times. But if I’m not being myself, then who am I pretending to be…and why? So I said fuck it. You gon get this wig. This nose ring. This bright ass lipstick. And these extra sunglasses. Enjoy.
