The WW people didn't specify what we should wear, so folks showed up in the whole gamut of attire, from business suits to a blouse and jeans. I fell somewhere in the middle:
This marks the first outing for my ever-popular Peppered & Striped Skirt! I'm not sure why I've been so reluctant to wear this; I guess I just wasn't quite sure how to style such a substantial piece. For those who haven't tried on this skirt, it is big and heavy. It spreads out when you sit to take up several seats on the subway. Substantial, I say.
I did a bit of pattern mixing here, but I think the colors in the top are muted enough not to clash with the polkas in the skirt. Perhaps it's risky to follow up my Outfit Triage post with a questionable mixing of patterns, but I like this a lot regardless.
I was surprised at how much I loved this skirt. It made me feel so pretty and cheery all day. I can't believe I waited so long to try it on!
(PS: I, along with (I assume) everyone else in the interview, got the job :-) Whether I can take it or not, due to the fact that I'm moving to DC in a few months, remains to be seen.) [Update: we're good to go! I can start working in NYC and then continue in DC through the summer and then as my free time allows. Hooray!]
