In the hard sciences (meteorology, physics, geophysics, space physics, astrophysics, etc.), scientists often dress casual at work. Thus, when someone has to attend a meeting you really see a difference in what people wear. Many meetings are on Fridays. On “Casual Friday”, you can see another example of Alaska extremes. Then there are huge differences between co-workers’ outfits being dressed for “Casual Friday” and being dressed up for a meeting.
Here I am trying to go some middle ground between dress-up Friday and casual Friday by wearing a gray sheath leather dress and a casual white denim jacket. The dress would be acceptable for attending a meeting when taking off the jacket. The jacket dresses down the seriousness of the sheath. The pink toed pumps and printed bag give the ensemble a playful vibe. Now it is up to you to decide what message this outfit conveys. Casual Friday or typical work outfit?
