The Next Step

"Wear something managerial."

That was the comment from my director when I asked how important it was for me to wear a jacket during my interview yesterday.

See, I am very superstitious about things, and I don't want anyone else on the team to know I'm up for a promotion until after I run through the process. And for me? Wearing a jacket is a dead give-away that there is something happening. And I was just interviewing internally, and really, who goes formal for an internal interview?

Apparently, I do...

So, the interview. It came. It went. And now, I wait.

And that, my friends, is no fun, at all.

(Also, as I mentioned on Twitter earlier today (follow me @taralynn404!), I heard 'managerial', but it seems my eyeshadow heard 'girls' night out!', which I didn't notice until right before the interview. Last minute make-up moves in the ladies' room before the interview? Always a good sign...)

Outfit 15 of 30
T-shirt: J Crew
Blazer: The Limited (no, this was not in my 30 for 30, but I think this was a justifiable cheat.)
Skirt: The Limited
Shoes: Nine West


  1. Great choice in adding on the blazer. It takes the professional look up another notch.

    Did they give you a timeline on how long you'll have to wait? Hopefully it won't be too unbearable. Keep yourself busy and time will fly right on by.

  2. Unfortunately, no timeline. Apparently, the CFO has to sign off on all offer letters right now, so, I'm just waiting. And waiting...

    Always fun :)
