Always jeans with either a t-shirt or a short sleeved casual button up shirt. And NEVER a Polo style shirt!

Work being uni - a pair of jeans, a t-shirt, and maybe a shirt over the top.
Work being internship this summer - I've no idea what the dress code is yet!

Working from home - whatever I like, or not as the fancy suits me (bit of a shock for the delivery people though). On the road, Logo'd shirt from my main client (if I'm representing them) plus suit, or just the full suit / tie.

It's not the visits that kill me it's the driving in a full suit - I usually take some scruffy shorts and a t-shirt to wear in the car and change just before I get to the site.

Or if I'm travelling on the bike (motor variety!) a pair of Draggin' Jeans and some Triumph low boots plus the logo shirt. A lot of my clients are media types and actually find the suit odd / amusing. A surprising number are also bikers which helps - including Triumph motorcycles themselves.

Dress pants, dress shirt, dress shoes. Thankfully no tie or jacket, though. Damn corporate dress code.

On the plus side, Friday is jeans day during the summer. [hearts]

Whatever I happen to pull out of the basket of laundry that's waiting to be folded and put away. Today it's jeans and a polo shirt.

Yay for no dress code.

Jeans and a t-shirt. They don't pay me to look pretty.

Today I wore black slacks and a black polo. I've got the next four days off for training, comes with mileage and per-diem plus they're springing for a hotel room. I'm going to sleep on my little sister's couch and pocket the hotel money.

After this weekend I'll be wearing a lab coat and safety glasses to work- I get to teach my own chemistry lab over the summer semester and possibly through next year!!! Power!!

snupy! Hi! Hope all is well in the UK with you.

As for me, I'm with quantumfluff. Pajama pants and a t-shirt - when in a really good mood, my "geekier than thou" t - socks optional according to weather.

Of course, when I'm out on a job, it's the basic black on black - or A/V peeps that may get on camera. Or, the odd guest chef gig, where I wear a white coat and crazy colored baggy chef pants.

Ok, now that reminds me of another thing that bugs me-the word is SOMETHING, not "summit", like a lot of people say here...where the heck does that come from???

I'm fine, Calli-yes, still loving it here, except for a few things:

-everything closes so darned early here-and what's the deal with Sundays?!
-There are about 12 different words to describe rain
-the media in this country are obsessed with footballers and their wives
-customer service is...well, an oxymoron most of the time
-restaurants put butter and/or bacon on everything!


On the plus side:

-everyone is sooo friendly
-it's always green and pretty
-people are in such a good mood when the sun comes out
-the Thai food here is awesome
-Sunday dinners
-the lovely accents
-Posh is America's problem now


I do love living out in the country, though. We're close enough to Leeds to make it convenient, but also have the quietness of village life.

Thanks for saying "hi", everyone!

Oh, and what I wear to work-black pants and black Trophy Pet Foods polo, both laden with dog hair! We deliver pet food to anywhere from 5-25 dogs a day. and, of course, we always have to say hello!

To work? How about to crew? Since that in itself is a job? [Wink]

Navy spandex shorts, bright blue racer back tank-top, gray sweats that say "CREW" on the bum (Yes...I'm guilty of wearing them.) white work out tee, and a light green zip-up jacket that says, "American Eagle" on the back. Of course by the end of the row this morning I was down to my bare layers of shorts and racer tank because it was just too damn hot. [crazy]

It varies, but I dress professionally. Usually a skirt and blazer or suit.

Docs, Black Dickies and a button up shirt. I have nicer stuff, but since I began to do tech work in a factory, anything lighter than black generally winds up black anyway...
