for old times sake

I'm one of those total dweebs who enjoys interviews.  Maybe its because I like meeting new people.  More likely its due to the fact that I am fond of talking about myself in a way only an only child can.  Regardless, it was oddly nice to ease back into my groove after more than 3 years off the circuit.

I say "ease" since my appointment this afternoon was just a meeting with a local recruiter, rather than an actual interview.  So fear not - given this glorious economy of ours, there are likely a few more moons of casual wear coming your way!

But for today... another bathroom in corporate America!

And another mirrored elevator!

As you can see, I play it pretty safe when it comes to unknown professional situations.  And had this been a real interview, you would have seen tights or hose, instead of that sweet bruise of unknown origin on my shin.

  1. Love the creative elevator shot! Better yet, love that you keep the fashion going, even with the current lay-off.

  2. I think you look classic and chic - perfect interview outfit!

  3. Taken photos in bathrooms is fine and the outfit looks well.

  4. I really love this outfit; it puts a smile on my face. It's simple and classic without being boring. It's just perfection :)

  5. I'm in love with the polka dot shell. I am falling head over heels for BR lately.

  6. Great outfit! I love interviews too, my friends all think I'm crazy. I'm also an only child...maybe there is something to that after all!

  7. Great outfit! Very chic interview look. Was that top purchased recently?

  8. A. Your hair looks great- good job on the color!
    B. I glanced at outfit without reading text, and thought "Horrors! Kate is not wearing panty hose to an interview!" Then I read, and was very relieved. Such an emotional roller coaster :)

  9. I adore that shell... I don't know what it is about polka dots, but I love them.

    Also -I'm the same way. I love talking to people. And if it's about myself, even better! hahah

  10. I LOLed about "I am fond of talking about myself in a way only an only child can." I am an only child and I SO the same way being. I wonder if there are a disproportionate amount of only children bloggers?

  11. I love your bag & the shell. So cute!
