Activity #302: Wear fleece

My friend at work, Melanie, gave me this tip for parents in the professional world. It’s sorta the opposite approach of Heather’s suggestion to keep your shirt off.

Pick an old large fleece and designate it as your pre-work cover up. Get dressed for work in your cashmere sweater set, dry-cleaned blazer, or whatever your uniform is, and then put the fleece on top.
