Do you have a dress code for work? Do you have a “uniform” you are required to wear? Even if your employer does not make you wear a specific uniform, you should have a “Nanny Uniform” for yourself and know the “do’s” and “don’ts”, especially when it comes to summer attire.
A uniform does not have to mean a starched dress, hat and formal gloves like the Norlan Nannies wear in the UK. Although they look classic, the look is not for your typical US household, and not always the most functional. You could create your own Nanny Uniform with just Khaki shorts and a polo shirt.
