Two Fridays ago I had an interview in Lake Charles (my future home). It was my second big girl job interview (I had a third last Friday). My mom and sista went with me so that I could show them Larry and I's house. They absolutely loved it by the way!! I wore this outfit for my first interview and got a second interview, which I did not take because it was fully commission. I figured since it was lucky enough to get me a second interview the first time, it would be lucky enough this time... and it was! I have a second interview in two weeks!
The interview I went to last week was yet another fully commission. Ugh. Not that I would take a second interview, but they didn't call me back for one yet and I'm thinking it's cause I didn't wear this outfit. I'm weird and sometimes superstitious.

You can't get much more professional than a black blazer and a white button up, but if you're wondering why I didn't go with a black skirt is because I didn't want to come off as too boring. I want to add some color and personality to my outfit. I went with flats because I didn't have any closed toe plain black heels. I don't think open toe is appropriate for an interview (just in case it goes against the company's dress code policy). I have some cap toe black heels but I think I walk funny in them and that's the last thing I want when I walk into an interview... "How about that girl who walked funny?"
We took these pictures when we met Larry for lunch. I saw this awesome colored wall and knew it would be el perfecto for outfit pictures. I especially love how the wall contrasts so good with my purple skirt!
Sista and I always actin' a fool in public.
