Work Wardrobe

Harper's Bazaar posted an article last week by an art director who has chosen to basically wear the same thing every day for the past 3 years - black dress pants + white silk blouse, her work 'uniform' or wardrobe. Her reasoning behind this is that she was wasting a lot of time and energy in the morning picking out her outfit and then would later feel out of place with all the suits in the room - a two-fold reason. Think about it - men have several suits and mix it up with button down shirts, but they do wear the same thing pretty much everyday. a t-fold reason. 

I totally get her first point, and don't really have to deal with her second one with my job right now. I don't really enjoy wearing the traditional suit pant and I like being able to play with trends, colors, and patterns. I do have some outfits that I would consider for work only, but right now I can't afford two completely different wardrobes. 

My personal pros & cons...

Pro: Getting dressed in the morning becomes way easier
Con: having to afford work wardrobe and an off work wardrobe
