I noticed that I needed new shoes last week. The shoes I was walking around in were looking pretty worn. As comfortable as they were to wear, they were utterly lacking in style. The eventuality of having to buy myself a new pair of shoes for work got me thinking about how I typically dress. From time to time, I am guilty of dressing far too casually. As a result, I’ve decided to introduce a consistent level of formality (again) into my daily work attire. I’ve decided to try and dress in a manner that pays respect to my chosen profession and that is more distinguished. Wish me luck. Thankfully, the Austin Public Library has collected some resources to point me in the right direction.
