Context: I'm a junior-level employee at a government office where it is EXTREMELY casual. Hardly anyone ever puts any effort into how they look. Those that do, wear dress pants and a shirt. While I typically abide by this silly idea, I, on the other hand, enjoy dressing up, in a suit and tie. I chose to do this today. Consequently, in a way, I was mocked for taking pride in wanting to look nice. I had to make an excuse for dressing up instead of just being able to look good. Has this ever happened to you? Could it be me over thinking things, and actually in the wrong for going "out of the norm"? Edit: Btw more clarification, jeans are rarely worn, more trousers and button down shirts in the workplace.
