Would you hire me?

If I wore this to a job interview?
Cardigan - Fake Target
T-shirt - Target
Belt - thrifted
Skirt - Fake Target
Shoes - Chinese Laundry

Good news on the job front, I have an interview on Thursday morning to be the assistant nurse at a school in Minneapolis. It's an awesome school and I hope I get to work there. It's so nice and close! Anyway, is this too much for an interview? I try to go to interviews as myself (that means no taking out the nose ring, no covering the ants on the foot tattoo, etc) so I don't have to ask questions later on what is okay and what is considered inappropriate. However, I also don't want to scare them off, I am a very responsible and caring person and don't want my "modern" appearance to scare off older hirers. You know what I mean? Really, I just wanted a reason to wear these new shoes, so I built the outfit around them (I don't think I would really wear the shoes in this matchy-matchy way, but for an interview, I think it works.) That is all, let me know what you think... (click the pic to enlarge and see the shoes in all their glory!)

P.S. I have listened to the War on Drugs song Taking the Farm about 200 times in the last two weeks. Go listen to it, on repeat...

I dig it. Especially the shoes. I've always covered up my tattoos at job interviews, but I see where you're coming from. It's a little different in a school than an office. Best of luck with the interview.

I second The Dig with exuberant enthusiasm! These colors are awesome! Best wishes for your interview, honey!

I work in a school. I'd hire you. Based on the shoes alone.

it's very pretty, you yourself look great, plus if I were hiring a nurse I'd look for attention to detail - so matching works here
