Big news in the Starbucks barista world today! The big whigs overhauled our dress code and are now officially allowing us to "personalize" our work wardrobes. I always cheated by wearing colorful socks and headbands, but now I can wear my little neck scarves, dark jeans everyday, grey, navy, or denim shirts, shirts without collars or turtlenecks, and anything in neutral colors but with a little subtle print! They also now allow bright hair colors, so if I decide to go all out fuchsia purple, I can! This probably doesn't seem like a big deal but I'm very excited. It's so boring to just pull out one of my multiple black "work" items and not have any of my personality in it. I spend so much time at work that it will be nice to have a little more pride in how I look while I'm there.
