I think we all can agree that Zoom University has been pretty interesting so far, don’t you think? It will definitely take some adjusting to get back into my usual school groove now that I’m still at home and classes are virtual. But with that said, I wanted to spend today’s blog post trying to convince you that you should still get dressed for your online classes, or virtual work, or anything else you’re doing while at home, even if you are just staying in your bedroom all day… Now I’m not saying you have to get completely dolled up—even I won’t be wearing blazers anytime soon—but I am asking that you at least swap the pajama pants for a pair of jeans or leggings.
