Hi, all! Today I spent a little over seven exhausting hours interviewing at Awesome School (Dream Job? Not sure. Most likely.); it was a whole lot of fun and a whole lot of talking about myself and a whole lot of tiring. Because my last job drilled the concept of old-fashioned professional dressing into my brain, I wore something very, very safe:
How I felt at the end of the day. Don't worry, my hair was neater at the school. Thankfully.
It's the return of the button-down! What Chalkdust always wears when dressing to impress potentially stuffy potential employers! I don't think I've ever featured this skirt on the blog before, but I've owned it since the fall of 2005. I bought it with another skirt in order to appear more professional for my undergraduate Hindi students. It's one of my faves. It has a nice swing and movement to it and never fails to lift my spirits when I wear it.
(I also wore a cardigan over this outfit because I was cold, but it was so depressingly "harried, flustered Spanish teacher at a New England private school" that I couldn't feature it. God. No.)
You guys wanna hear the kicker? When my husband and I came home tonight, I got a call from ANOTHER school's Spanish teacher to test my skillz - and there's a chance I might interview elsewhere, too! Yay!

PS - I haven't really visited or commented on blogs today because of the busyness, so forgive me!
