Today my company hosted Walk the Walk — a corporate day of giving back in the communities where we work! My team volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Jacksonville and it was just the most beautiful day to help build a home!
The notice said to wear “closed toe” shoes and comfortable clothes, so I was sure to wear my Pink Tights & J. Crew Ballet Flats thinking I was following the rules. Upon arrival, the site manager (and all my co-workers) looked at me crazy — everyone else had protective sneakers/socks combos ready for the mud and heavy lifting — I didn’t fit in at all — and I totally didn’t care.
Over the years I’ve become insanely comfortable knowing who I am and just being authentically me at all times. I’m a ballet flats and tights kind of girl whether i’m at my desk or building a house…I love being me and can’t change it and wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.
