Still wear that. It sounds perfect.

how dressy is the shirt? if not too dressy that sounds fine. even though i worked in a casual office, it was nice to see people who i was interviewing turning up having obviously made an effort at smart casual (despite most of us being in jeans and tshirt).

I'd still go quite smart for the interview even though office is casual - I wore a suit for my job even though it is working from home.

Good luck!

your outfit sounds perfect, better to be too smart for an interview than not smart enough

Smart casual all the way. If you wear formal black trousers team it with a white (new) t shirt to keep it casual - I think a shirts too formal. Otherwise a nice monsoon patterned skirt with a t shirt's nice and a cardigan. But no flip flops! Little bally shoes are always nice.

I'm sure you'll be fine and dandy!

Good luck!!!
