The week before vacation is always the hardest. I leave for the beach on Friday and everyone and their dog is going to make sure I work for it. So rather than devote my brain power to things like getting dressed, I will be employing a bit of a uniform for the week: Black pants. They always make me feel more polished than jeans (even in flats!) and when I feel polished, I feel more confident, and I get more work done. There's some sort of wardrobe science there someone should investigate.
