So this past week, I have been attending orientation for any new Henry Ford new hires. Except I'm not a new Henry Ford new hire, I'm a transfer, but apparently that's beside the point.
Here is the dress code for these off-site training sessions:
No denim, no artificial nails, no crocs or open-toes shoes, no bare legs, no exposed tattoos or piercings, must wear dress pants/slacks, skirts/dresses acceptable, shoes should compliment clothing, skirts no more than 2 inches above the knee, clothes should be neat, pressed, in good and appropriate size, yadda yadda yadda.
Now don't get me wrong. I realize the need for these (terribly outdated) necessary (what is it, 1950?) dress code rules, because you can't go out in public without seeing someone in pajama pants and/or slippers, looking as though they just rolled out of bed (or the bar) but it still makes me kinda giggle.
So! When I went to get dressed this morning in my (neatly pressed) dress pants and my (complimentary to my clothing) brown flats, I realized it was rainy. Rainy weather + flats = cold feet.
My way of handling this predicament?
