I must know Rachel - how do you find the office compared to workshop floor ?

 Kind regards, Kirsten.

I really like being able to be clean every day. But It can be mentally draining.
Worst thing is because I haven't physically done anything, when I get to the weekend I do tones of manual stuff and leave myself tiered for the week.

I have to learn to chill more maybe!


But yes flexibility of a skirt can't be beat!

I have to wait to get home for dresses or skirts. I would love to spend the day in neat womens professional attire. I often have a mix of office and hangar floor, - the tropical heat is a killer in the workshop!

 Can you get the best of both worlds with office comfort and vigorous physical excercise outside of work ?

You can, but it takes a lot of energy. I washed all 3 of my cars today and I am soooo tiered now D:

Once you are done with the Jeep, would you please be so nice and come to wash my two cars?  >:-)

I never was into japanese cars, I had a Toyota once, hated it and sold it again.  It was always either American iron (my father in law had a GM Dealership, the prices were right then  >:-)), or German engineering (VW and/or Audi).
And for my own punishment I keep my 1961 Triumph TR4 Roadster, which in typical British car fashion needs 4 days of work to be able to drive it one day!  But when it drives, it is sheer fun, nothing beats getting your teeth knocked out in an old British roadster!

Derailing a thread much?  There is a thread devoted to cars elsewhere here.  We have also had a topic thread entitled "The thread that cannot be derailed" for those so inclined to wander about the premises.   ;) ;D

Dresses and skirts can be so flattering or part of accentuating a body shape with narrow hips and little butt.  We do get to choose and that is the very best part!

I love mixing skirts and tops.  I can pick out a bright, or bold patterned skirt and match it with a solid top to shift visual focus away from the slightly wide shoulders. A skirt can be cut to produce the illusion of hips and legs that go on forever!  🤩

That is me to a Tee!

I travel A LOT for work, and skirts/tops are the only way to have enough outfits and not bring two steamer trunks of clothes.

As well, dresses make my straight up and down figure look even more straight. Skirts help make the hips show a bit more.

I love wearing all three however I voted for skirts because they make me feel more fem and I love to dress them up. I do love dresses but because of my current body shape they are not always flattering on me and I have bumps in all the wrong places.

We can avoid that ‘straight up and down’ look with a structured dress, one designed with some structural shape that does not rely on clinging to or being draped over a body for shape.  Calvin Kline and Tahari make quite a few different ‘officeware’ structured dresses.  I have several...

HA! I have just been shopping in the wrong places!

The skirts I like are mostly "structured" ones. I should have thought to look for dresses with the same characteristics.

Thanks for the advice, Michelle!!!

Skirts, I'm not quite shaped right for dresses, so keeping top/bottom separate is easier to fit

Big fan of hippyesque broomstick skirts, though they end up a bit short on me.
