Pattern Mixing--Stripes and Whatever This is Called

Jacket closed

What on the ground is so interesting?

As mentioned yesterday, today I had a meeting to attend where the speaker was one of the Presidents of our company. It was suggested that we dress how we would for an interview, and I have worn this jacket on an interview (didn't get the job). I wore it with a black a-line skirt but thought this time I'd wear it with a pinstriped pencil skirt and pattern mix! Actually, I chose the skirt first since it's "Super Stripes Week" at Megan Mae Daily.

I don't think of wearing a power suit to an interview like I would have fresh out of college. I would wear a power suit if I were going for a power job like a Director, Executive, of Queen of the Mountain--but I'm not. I still think this is professional yet not stuffy. I think it's important to dress for the part aka the position for which you are interviewing. I currently work in Finance for a Major Retailer. Professional yet not stuffy (and hopefully somewhat fashionable).

  1. You look lovely! Though you're right, the jacket does look a bit like a yukata if left unbuttoned, but I think references to traditional asian clothing are super chic, so there you have it. The earrings are dreamy...so right for spring!

  3. I like the pattern mixing. You're right - subtle enough for professional dress, but still fashionable!

  6. Professional yet not stuffy. Yep, you nailed it! I really like this, especially with the jacket closed because it shows off your waist better. You look great! Hope you enjoyed the presentation. :)
