I got an email from Melissa sharing with me she just got her very first teaching interview at an Elementary school and she needed some help with an outfit. I was really excited about this one because yay! I love teachers. I also hate typical teacher clothes. I definitely dress more casual as an art teacher but if I was going for an interview I would want to look very professional without being unfashionable, but still showcasing my own personal style. I love all the new spring looks from J Crew and Anne Taylor LOFT. They are so soft and feminine and the colors are just gorgeous.
I would wear a pencil skirt just because I love them. This one from LOFT has cute gathering details at the pockets which set it apart from your standard pencil skirt. I love the vibrant coral color of the blouse from J Crew and the ruffles on the front are just too pretty. If you felt uncomfortable with having your arms bare or if it was still chilly out you could wear a cardigan. I also paired the outfit with a super bright yellow belt. I love the punch it adds to the outfit. If it was too much for you, you could always wear no belt or just wear something toned down a bit. Last but not least…. Who doesn’t want a pair of Seychelles t straps? They make the most adorable shoes and really anything they make would be awesome with this outfit.
What do you think? Is this a good Interview outfit?
