I had an interview today. I was so worked up about figuring out what to wear (my old go-to interview outfits no longer fit)  that I didn’t get enough sleep. The campus was pretty far away (speaking as a person who considers anything above 34th St a no man’s land) and long train rides and transferring from one line to another make me ridiculously anxious. Even for a neurotic New Yorker. I say all of that to say, I wasn’t feeling my best.

In the end, I wore handmade (thankyouverymuch) and my warmest special occasion/feeling fancy/you’ve looked like a slob for several weeks now coat. The interview went really well, but, in an ironic twist, I might not qualify for the position as I am no longer a student. What can you do?

Anyway. My little daughter requested my presence for a photo on the way home from school.



The jump was my idea 😀


Thankfully, I did NOT have this variation of Alfafa’s hair-do earlier, lol. This was a hastily thrown up bun to go grab the kids.

Also. Wow, my lips just blend right in with my face without lipstick lol!

Coat :: Banana Republic
(so old, I only had one kid when I bought it)
Shoes :: H&M
Tights :: Duane Reade
(Surprisingly great quality!)

  1. Interviewing is *always* a good thing (even though it sucks), even if you don’t qualify. You never know what might come out of it! And you looked great — very interview-y…but cool! (And I was actually going to say your hair looked cute :). That is my go-to style most days, and my hair is so long now that I totally have a tuft sticking out that I cannot control.) Oh, and I also LOL at “only had one kid”!

  2. The jumping photo is very Henri Cartier-Bresson! I love it! I’m sorry that the interview didn’t turn out as well as you had hoped. Keep trying girl. At least you wore a good outfit – in my opinion, you looked great!
