What I Wore Wednesday – Eeeeep job interview!!

Today I have a job interview. By the time this post goes live, it will have already taken place. The reason I haven’t mentioned it here before is because it only happened two days ago. Having been a stay at home mummy for nearly two years (how is that possible????), it’s pretty safe to say that no outfit remotely suitable for a job interview currently resides in my wardrobe.

“Oh yes, there’s my smart suit, right there at the back with my size 8 ballgown which no longer fits, my fingerpaint stained T-shirt and several pairs of food/mud/dribble soaked jeans that I forgot needed washing”


So as we all know, it does not take much to give me an excuse to go shopping so off I went, toddler in tow. Amazingly it was a fairly productive trip, despite me only having time to go somewhere with two fairly small women’s clothes shops (ahhh Leatherhead, how I love you) and having Oliver with me. I didn’t want to go down the traditional ‘suit’ route but at the same time (and this makes me sad), I am aware of how return to work mothers are sometimes viewed in interviews so I really wanted to look professional and capable. So this is what I came up with…

Jacket | Top | Trousers

… did I get it wrong or did I get it right?? Please let me know what you think! (This is almost more nerve-wracking than the interview itself!)

Bonus question!!!

What is your take on sleeves in interviews?? I kinda wanted to go with something that had sleeves in case the sleeveless look was too slutty casual but a) my choice was pretty limited, b) I loved this shirt and c) I plan to keep the jacket on throughout anyway so I guess it doesn’t matter?

Once again, I must apologise for my horrible selfies. Perhaps if I get this job, I can hire myself a photographer to take my picture once a week. Or, y’know, spend money on sensible things like house…. or shoes.

  1. I like it. You look good. I think it depends what sort of job you went for tbh.

    Ps love your new look blog.

  2. Thanks! I just made a few small changes but I think they’ve made a lot of difference! I’m definitely more motivated to write! Any thoughts on your design change yet? x
