I work with an older crowd so I am never in danger of showing up to work in the same outfit as a co-worker. The only time I had this problem was while working at Cedar Point (an amusement park) one summer, we wore long blue shorts and I mean long with red polos, it was hideous. But now I can proudly say I wear my outfits and I wear them alone. The only minor speed bump to consider while getting ready for work is the giggles and smirks I will have to endure from moody teenagers dressed head to toe in very snug fitting Abercrombie and Fitch. Now I have to admit, I think I was one of those teenagers and I'm sure I scoffed at others as well, blame it on the peer pressure. But it's intimidating, at first. Sure when I use to hear "look at the girl in the tutu" whispered a little too loudly I would shuffle off in the other direction, but now I proudly stay in the area and do a little twirl (in my mind of course, and the twirl is an awesome one if you were wondering). It is a nice feeling to feel confident enough to wear the clothes you really love and not just the ones you stuff yourself into to feel "cool". Of course I am just a naturally cool gal, so I guess it just comes easy. Cool is a relative term, but I am going to stick with it.
