This week I had grand plans to put together my outfit for Aussie Curves – Job Interview early and get it all blogged and done before Friday.
But the best laid plans and all…
Sure, I had put it off for a couple of days because I hadn’t quite figured out the entire outfit, but I was getting there. Thursday was going to be the day.
Then in the early hours of Thursday morning I had a rather rude awakening in the form of my dinner deciding to come back up (gross). I won’t go into any other details, but two days off work and four days later after a diet of not very much, I’m still not feeling that great. But I am getting better.
Which is why, at the last hour, I have come to write my Job Interview post for Aussie Curves.
Last night I spent a few hours going through multitudes of photos sorting them into various folders to try and find a couple of photos of my outfits from when I was actually interviewing for jobs a few months ago. Lucky for you, I found them.
Usually for a job interview I will dress more on the business side with a little bit of flare. I am in journalism, so day-to-day attire is usually smart-casual, but it can vary greatly depending on where you’re going or what you’re doing.
Pretty much for every job interview I will wear my City Chic blazer. It has probably been one of the absolute best buys for my wardrobe ever. I have never once regretted buying it and I don’t ever see myself getting rid of it.
Normally I will go for some combination of skirt/stockings/top/blazer and add a belt if necessary/I feel like it.
The outfit above is probably one of my most liked outfits on Instagram. Unfortunately on this occasion I did not get the job. But I think it was definitely a winner.
Blazer: City Chic
Peplum: City Chic
Stockings: We Love Colors
As you can see I’ve taken the same combination, but with different top and skirt.
Pretty sure this is the outfit I wore to the interview of the job I have now as I am standing in the foyer of the building I now work in.
Peplum and Skirt: City Chic
Everything else same as above.
For a job interview I will keep my hair and make-up quite basic. Usually my make-up will just be a good base of foundation, a little eye-liner and mascara with a light lip colour. Hair I will usually wear down and straightened (the first photo is post-interview, so it was down and looked much prettier before this!)
Hopefully for next week I’ll be back at 100 per cent for Your Closet. (What does that mean?!)
