Topic Am I overdressed?

When I am going to the university I am wearing elegant blouse and jacket. That is my normal way of dressing. And still I look casual in comparison to all the professors in suits.

Here, everybody has sweatpants and spot shoes. And the teachers is wearing baseball cap. What can I say I look different. Am I weird? Maybe not, as the library lady is wearing the trouser suit. And everything would be perfectly fine if she wouldn't combine it with the yellow converses and rainbow socks. And that is not the weirdest socks you can spot in Stockholm. 

So am I overdressed? I was seriously worried. But nobody is staring. And you know what? Nobody cares. So whatever you feel comfortable in is fine. And that is a strategy I applied - stop carrying and wear what I like. So, if you do not feel like wearing make up today is still fine. What you like to wear is what you wear and there are almost no rules what is acceptable and what is not. 

But if you are the type who wants to blend in a pair of sweatpants and Adidas are strongly recommended.
