Allie from Wardrobe Oxygen is RIGHT!

On one of her recent posts, she insists that a woman should always have a black suit in her wardrobe.  This counts for stay at home moms and working moms.  They are excellent for work, church, classy dress up events, interviews.  Her reason is: You never know when you'll need it.  I agreed as I read her article (which I almost always do) and then proceeded not to get a black suit.  And guess who could use one today?
Well, that is an easy hypothetical question.

I have an interview today for my internship.  Because of the tattoo on my leg, I cannot wear a dress or skirt.  I own two pairs of pants; black and brown.  Neither one fit me great right now.  For now, in my head, I am choosing the brown ones, with my teal wrap cotton shirt.  I am none too thrilled with this option.  I wish, wish, WISH, I had a classic black pant suit to wear today.  I even thought about it over the weekend, but with watching my friend's sick kid, I ended up not going and now I regret it immensely.

My interview is at 10am today.  I'm already "hired" since it's an internship, we're just meeting to discuss hours and sign necessary paperwork.  Besides algebra, this is, for the most part, the last box to check in my quest to get my degree.  I will have Mr. R take a picture of me as I leave today (I'm trying to do a bit of work before I leave, maybe an hour's worth) and post it later.

Oh good. I love pictures!

So when were you going shopping??

Our weather here is insane! Doug's dispatcher....he's sending them back to St. know....where the blizzard was/is :::rolleyes::: He's been driving around on ice and snow all week. So glad Mr. R is stuck at home with you :)

Oh you are too funny! Thank you for the call out.

I know the interview went just dandy and they loved you. And I personally adore the combo of teal and brown! :)
