Next To Me.


I've been having a few interviews for jobs recently. And wanted to get an idea for the type of clothes I would have to wear for the jobs. This is a bit too informal, the skirt is too short, and the top is not fitted enough. 

But I'm trying to get into the mind frame of dressing smarter. 

The skirt is the pencil one from ASOS I have worn before under another blouse. I could pull this skirt down to make it more formal and smarter, but it wouldn't be too fussed up. I love the colour of this shirt. It goes with everything. It looks great under jumpers too, most prominently my black one from H&M. Will I ever get sick of those jumpers!?

I wore the black chelsea boots from office, like I've said before, when I put these on I can't actually believe they're such a high heel. They're very comfy, and unlike a lot of Office shoes (I don't just grumble because I used to work for their competitor Schuh) they're wide too, which means even I squoze(is it even a word!?) my feet into them!
To finish off I wore this statement necklace that adds to an otherwise plain outfit, and this big ring. Gold, burnt orange and black, might be my favourite colour combination yet!

I just wanted to point out at that Jilly BeansTALK has done a similar item over there, if you're looking for further (and better, may I add!?) advice about what to wear for interviews! 

What do you wear to job interviews?

Shirt - Dorothy Perkins
Skirt - ASOS
Tights - Tesco

  3. This isnt a bad outfit for an interview just needs some tweaks. maybe a knee length tighter skirt. A fitted shirt and a blazer of sorts. Since you aren't out at an interview you look fabulous.

    I follow back!

    New DIY !!

  4. Lovely blouse! ^^ Like others already mentioned, I feel a longer (knee length?) skirt would do the trick. ^^d
