i feel pretty decent about my current post-baby style.
i’ve been rather . . .nice to myself this fall, and my closet currently does contain multiple outfits that i enjoy wearing. i also did a clean sweep a little while ago — out went ill-fitting dresses, jeans that i’m not sure ever fit, too-short or stretched out tops, and a few misguided anthropologie sale-rack ‘experiments’.
when it comes to sweaters or skinny jeans, i’m good. but i have two job interviews coming up next week [!!!] and — well, i am in need of some help.
as i’ve mentioned before, we’re headed to miami beach after finishing up this july in NC. i’m thrilled not to have to pack a million layers for our upcoming trip, but it would have made interview attire easier. i have a brown suit [jacket, pants] from banana republic circa 2006 — from residency interviews. it’s not the most glamorous, but if i were headed to the snow zone it probably would have made the most sense.
however, it just felt like too much for miami. too heavy, slightly dated, and perhaps a little too stuffy. i was just going to make it work, but josh urged me to get something i would feel good in. of course, finding a last-minute ensemble isn’t the easiest, especially when you’re 5’1″ [alterations are usually involved].
here’s what i ended up coming home with:
[the jacket sleeves need to be shortened]
friday – sunday
will probably run 1-2x in miami.
