Interview tomorrow and I'm having a last minute panic about what I'm wearing....

It's in a school. I'm not a suit person and actually I would t wear a suit to work if I were to work there. I'm also not a trouser person.
I like dresses. I have one, black with small flowers on. I was going to wear this with 30 denier black tights, black cardigan and smarter ballet shoes. Too much black? Or, I could go with a fitted striped skirt with black top and same shoes/tights.
The shoes aren't really me to be honest, but I can't wear slouchy boots, pumps, DMs or wellies!!

I think that sounds lovely - smart and coordinated.

Either sounds fine

I'd wear the dress
Good luck

I work in a school, the flowery dress outfit sounds ideal.

Thank you. I shouldn't be worrying about what to wear! I should be worrying about what they are going to ask me and the task they are apparently going to give me!

Sounds fine to me to. Good luck!

Your dress sounds lovely. I would wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. You'll be more relaxed and probably interview better because of it.

Just don't do what I did and wear a silky blouse and then realise buttons had come undone and your tits were on display blush

Got the job though

Dress sounds lovely. I recently had an interview in a school and wore a dress, black opaques and smart ankle boots.
If it's for a HT / DH post though I'd probably go with a jacket rather than cardigan.

Ggirl, that's exactly the sort of thing that would happen to me 😂
Smile, definitely NOT a HT or DH post!
I'm slightly worried about my shoes running! It's a 10 min walk from where I'll have to park. Might need to squeeze some comfy shoes in a bag and change round the corner!!
Anyway, I'm not going to worry any more. If they want me, they want me, if I don't get through then I'm really happy I got to interview stage!

That's the way I looked at it too. Was just very pleased to get through the sift and to get an interview and task.
Good luck!
