Interview


I don't normally do outfit posts on Sundays, but since I did so little of them last week, I figured I would make an exception. I cannot get over how much I love this skirt or the fact that I found it at a Salvation Army. This was one my find last weekend and I got it without even trying it on. It was gorgeous, $4, and a different color than any other skirt I owned. It would have been a crime not to get it.

I wore this on Thursday when I had to re-interview for my job as editor-in-chief. A board chooses the editor-in-chief each year and even though I'm returning, I still had to re-apply. It's a pretty laid-back process, but I still wanted to make an effort. I wore this to class and slipped on a gray cardigan and black flats before the actual interview. Fortunately, I can now safely say that I'm officially keeping my job. One more year of editing for me!






I have to make this post quick since I'm off to my brothers house for a little while before work. I got sick earlier this weekend with the flu so I had to miss my 4-year-old nephew's first soccer game, which I was really sad about. Luckily I'll get to spend some time with him and my niece today once I finally get off the computer and go shower. At some point.

Skirt: Thrifted
Dress (worn as top): TJ Maxx
Shoes: UO
Necklace: Gift from family (Francesca's Collections)

  12. Shut the front door, that skirt is awesome! It' one of my favorite shades of pink and I really like the pleats, it's just crazy what you can find at the thrift store sometimes. ($4 is a pretty good deal as well.)
    Congratulations on keeping your editor in chief job for another year, I always enjoy reading the posts where you talk about your paper and whats going on with it. That's got to be such an amazing experience to have under your belt already.

  17. Good for you and your editing position! That is exciting to know you'll be returning :) You looked really great too. I love how simple and classic this pairing is, but you threw in a great fun necklace! I'm definitely loafer obsessed right now so I am in LOVE with your shoes. They are a really great shape and tassles!!! They are wonderful :)
