Reader Request: Guidelines for Work Wear Across the Working Spectrum

Ages ago, reader Grace asked if I could weigh in on the ins and outs of workwear. She said:

If you wanted an idea for a post sometime, I think one on different types of work wear for different types of work environments would be great. I work from home now, but am soon going to be working in a fairly corporate environment, which will be very different from my past offices, which have been more like where you work. Because of that, I’m thinking a lot about the fairly wide spectrum of “work wear,” and I think it would be cool to see/read your take.

The Body Love Timeline


I believe that learning to love your body is vital.

I believe that learning to love your body – no matter what that body looks like, feels like, has done, will do, or won’t do – can help you lead a more fulfilling life.

I believe that learning to love your body through acceptance and patience, understanding and tenderness, can open you up to a world of opportunities and joy.

But I don’t believe that learning to love your body is easy or quick or a process that can be accelerated. It can take a long time. A really, frustratingly long time. It can take years or decades. It might even take most of your lifetime.

Smile More

Growing up with a gender variance made me super suspicious and fearful of people.  I grew up with the belief that it would be super negative if I ever let anybody in on my terrible secret.  I didn’t need to be told this directly, I just knew that this was how it was supposed to be.  This is, after all, a country in which many transgender people lose their homes, their jobs, their families, their lives, at the revelation of being transgender.  In many ways, the public is certainly a thing to be afraid of.  Which is why during my first few years of being out, the thing I felt most deeply was suspicious of other people.
