    Default "Australian" mufti

    We're having a multicultural day at work- wear mufti and bring a plate.
    Everyone else naturally has all these exotic outfits, but I am a bit stuck for ideas as an Australian. Nothing too out there, I have to work in it. Maybe just a token something.

    Any ideas? Also a plate of food?

    Food - fairy bread.

    Wear thongs. Maybe denim shorts and a tank top if you can with the dress code.

    Wear a yellow hat and black shirt and go as a tin of vegemite, and match the outfit with a plate of vegemite sandiwches.

    Hope those ideas not too lame. Couldn't think of anything else.

    Ah... my brother suggested a "wife beater" - a dark blue bonds singlet - with a flanno over the top.

    I love lamingtons. Much better idea than fairy bread!

    Ok so I told them I'd bring lamingtons and was told there's too many desserts already. So I suggested party pies and sausage rolls IF the kitchen can cook them for me lol. They're going to get back to me on that.

    Shoes need to meet WH&S standards. Clothes need to be mufti but need to have some kind of professionalism (ie not sure about singlets) as we actually have super important auditors in that day.
    Other staff were talking today about which colour/design/beading/sequins/embroidery option out of the many options of cultural dress that they have in their wardrobes at home that they are going to wear. Some were also practising their cultural dances that they will do.
    *sigh* Australians are so boring in comparison lol.

    An akubra hat, check shirt and jeans. Like on McLeods Daughters. And what about damper for the food? Bread goes with anything.
