Interview Attire

Being a Post-Grad without a full-time job, going on numerous interviews is becoming the norm. To cover all my bases after doing research on the company, I googled what to wear on a job interview.

All the results gave directions like pressed business suit, closed-toe heels, neutral colors, no fingernail polish, and pulled back hair. All of these lacked any sort of personality. I thought first interviews were mainly first impression/personality type situations. How can someone get a true sense of who I am, if I am not comfortable in my attire.

I am not a fan of the business suit. It is not flattering on any one woman I have ever seen. It is also not comfortable. Then what to wear?

Nowadays, I feel business professional attire rules can be flexible.

On a recent interview I wore this.IMAG0977-1

  • Blazer- Forever 21
  • Sweater Dress- Target
  • Scarf- Target
  • Watch- Michael Kors
  • Tights- JCrew
  • Boots- Target
  • Nail Polish- Essie

I felt and looked professional without being in an uptight suit. What do you think?

What are you wearing on your job interviews? I would love to know and happy job hunting:)

Foodie Friday: Episode 3

So as most of you know, one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to get back into shape. I have been eating more salads and less chocolate. And for those of you who personally know me, should understand that this is a big deal.

So in order to reward myself for this accomplish, my sister and I went to Tupelo Honey Cafe this past Sunday. I got the best brunch item in the place to go along with my warm brewed coffee.

Chicken and Biscuits.

Fried chicken breast laid on top of a bed of homemade biscuits and gravy. Enough said. It was so good! If you are looking for a great brunch to indulge in some delicious food, Tupelo Honey is the place to go. Don’t just take my word for it, try it out yourself!

Fashion Trends

I am a recent Undergrad Graduate. One of the things I am trying to figure out after graduation is my style. How does a post grad dress?

What I do know is that the days of baggy sorority shirts and barely visible Nike shorts are drawing to an end. Now that I don’t have the excuse of not having time to dress nice because I am running to class; I have to figure out what my style now should be.

According to several Fashion Brands, the big trend for 2014 is patterns. One of my favorites, JCrew, even said “Solids are so 2013”. So in order to try and find my style after graduation, I have tried it out.

IMAG0975On this chilly Sunday, I have paired my SheInsideΒ Beige Long Sleeve Geometric Pattern Pullover Sweater with an Aztec inspired PacsunΒ Infinity Scarf, both of which I got for Christmas.

I also wore these with my $40 Stirrup Boots from Target and Ray-Ban Aviators for a day of brunch and shopping with my sister (#sistersunday). I can’t wait to incorporate these two new pieces into my every day wardrobe. One day I hope to be half as fashionable as Bravo’s Courtney Kerr. If you haven’t seen Courtney Loves Dallas or gone to her blog…go now!

Happy 2014!

The starting of a new year symbolizes a clean slate in everyone’s mind. This is the time to change something about yourself you wish you could or try something you’ve never done before.

New Year’s Day is that time again where everyone makes their New Year’s Resolutions that they most likely won’t keep in 3 months.

This is the time to make a list of resolutions to improve upon your life in some way. Unfortunately resolutions also have the reputation of not being committed to a full year.

I am also guilty of this. I make resolutions I know I won’t keep, who is going to hold me accountable anyways, right?

Well know I have this handy-dandy blog. I am going to write about my new years resolutions as 2014 progresses. Here’s my list:

  1. Being a recent grad, my goal is to have a legit job (excluding my current retail one) by the end of 2014.
  2. I want to get back into shape. I know it’s stereotypical, but who wouldn’t hope to make their health better every year?
  3. Travel somewhere I haven’t been. I wouldn’t hate to add another stamp to my passport. But where to go? I guess we will have to see.
  4. Get back into art and photography. I haven’t done either in a long time and I miss it so much.
  5. Be happy. I want to try and stress less this year. I think it will do me good.

I hope to keep all of these resolutions and with the help of my blog, I plan to do so.

Happy 2014. For you I hope it is a blessed year, full of completed resolutions and happiness.
