FOTD & OOTD #13 - Casual University Interview Outfit - 16/09/14

Hello everyone! Today I'm back with a little FOTD & OOTD. I was trying to think of a catchy title for this post but then I realised this was when I went to an interview at Uni so maybe if you have an interview coming up (this was a more casual than formal interview) then this might help you for an outfit! I know myself when I've had interviews in the past, your outfit and appearance is really important for first impressions and it puts forward an impression of you as a person overall; obviously your personality and skills etc are major and extremely important, but you gotta dress to impress d00d.


Mac Paint Pot in Painterly
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr in 35 On and on Bronze
Topshop Kohl Eyeliner in Sable
Lancôme Définicils Mascara
Mac Lipstick in Peach Blossom

I forgot how much I loved my duo of Painterly and On and on Bronze, it's so easy to apply and lasts all day for me! I've also rediscovered my love for my Topshop eyeliner in Sable, it was my first brown eyeliner and my love for them has grown tremendously since then.

I'm actually writing a blog post about how I did my hair in these photos so all I'm going to say is that it was extremely dirty (TMI) and I used a lot of dry shampoo to get it looking reasonable! My hair was put in a plait over night when it was dry, the night before when it was wet so it had that natural curl/messy look. For my fringe/hair at the front, I just simply put them both in a plait and used curby grips to secure those bits at the back of my head!


Necklace - Forever 21
Dress - Boohoo
Jacket - All Saints
Shoes - Converse

I personally really love this dress, it's so comfy to wear as it's a smock dress so it isn't tight/super short and is quite flowy which is nice. The long sleeves are a personal favourite of mine, as I think I've said before but I'm quite self-conscious about my arms so I always feel better when they are covered. In general, I love the colour shade grey, it's my comfort colour and when the seasons change, darker colours are in and I'm gonna love it! Grey, black, burgundy, greens, navy.. I'm all over that! Also, dat necklace - it adds a bit of girlyness to it all but is still black and therefore can go with most things.

The interview by the way was about a research experiment that I'm going to be taking part in, which is extremely exciting! I'm getting trained next week on how to use an eye tracker and how to conduct an experiment by myself so it's great that I'm getting this experience now to help for next year and it'll look good on my CV also.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading this post! What is your go to interview outfit?

Have a lovely day, and don't stop smiling. :)

  1. Absolutely love your outfit and make up! Love how the dress is quite formal but then the leather jacket makes it a little casual x
