So I am going to go ahead and try and go back to work full time. SOMEDAY maybe I will be able to go part-time, just not now.
So I’m starting to interview. I want to approach this process as honestly as possible. I do not want to take a job where I feel I would have to change who I am. I am a very skilled, intelligent woman, and I deserved to be hired and appreciated for who I am.
And I am not a person who wears suits. So I am not going to buy one. I considered it, and I always have before. But I don’t like them, they are expensive and I don’t want one. And I don’t really want to work in an office where I’d need a suit to get hired, it just wouldn’t be a good fit. I enjoy my clothes too much.
So I want to wear something conservative, and professional, but with personality.
Option A. A grey shift dress from Target. At first, I was going to wear it with black tights. But Nathan suggested plum. I think they are the perfect balance between professional and fashionable.
I’m glad I took this picture, because now I know not to ever cross my legs in this dress in an interview
I’ll pair this with my beetle necklace and turquoise hoops from the Love Erin Designs shop.
Option B is a floral print blouse, a pencil skirt and a polka dot blazer with the same tights.
With my Jasper hoops from Love Erin Designs…
I have a pretty strong preference for option A. But I know I’ll eventually have a second interview somewhere and I’ll have to pull out the second one. What do you think?
