The Lab Wardrobe

I played against type today, I am wearing a skirt, pretty shirt and cute shoes. To Lab. It's a good thing I have a lot of computer work planned!

Ah dressing like a scientist. The bleach-proof scruffy eternally dreary clothes. To be honest, there is something to be said for jeans, t-shirt and sneakers, after all that takes care of the general ick factor of exposed skin in the animal room or the slight overall scariness of working with radioactivity. But how long can one go on dressing "like a scientist"? Company t-shirts, jeans from six seasons ago. I'm tired of it, I have a whole wardrobe that doesn't get worn enough.

I think the true revolution is the ballet flat. They are great! Closed toes, flat, comfortable and go with everything. Practical and attractive, imagine that, whole new worlds have opened up. Bringing on the new wardrobe...

Did you come up with a solution to the post-doc outfit? I'm tired of the jeans and polo shirt look, but I still want a comfortable, clean aesthetic.
