Dressed Up Pretty

Button Up: Express, Skirt: Thrifted Banana Republic, Heels: Steve Madden, Necklace: Rue 21, Sunglasses: Target

Yesterday I had an early job interview...I wore a version of this outfit. Instead of the full black skirt, I wore a pencil skirt. I always feel that a basic black pencil skirt always does the job. I think it went pretty well but interviews always leave me feeling a bit uncertain after even I feel confident that I could get the job. I start thinking, "did I answer that question right?", "I should have said this instead", or "I hope they didn't notice me twisting my ring around my finger"...you know stuff like that. So right after, I headed to Starbucks to relax with a bit of tea and marble pound cake...yum my favorite.

What do you do to unwind from after interview jitters? 

Enjoy the weekend <3  I'll still be celebrating my birthday!

  3. Cute outfit! I love the coordination between your necklace and your sunglasses :) I hope you get the job!! I'm on the hunt for a new one, too. I like to have a nice glass of white wine and watch some bad t.v. to unwind after my jitters, hehe

  4. LOVE your necklace! Definitely perfect for an interview with a pencil skirt. Simple, polished but still shoes your personality!

  7. I think of this outfit as very feminine and work/interview appropriate. I really like this one, probably because it's something i'd wear myself to work as well.
    Oh and...happy birthday!


  8. Oooh, love this outfit! You definitely look put together and sharp. Love that statement necklace <3
    And yeah, I know what you mean...its tough after interviews! I always second guess myself.
    Hope this one went well though!
