    Glad your counselor is helping you focus on how this situation is not meeting your needs. Have you discussed job searching with him yet?
    Personally, I have to have pockets in a jacket or pants.

    Great jacket. Perfect. Not too formal, but clean and tailored looking.

    Because I'm in business, I was surprised when you even asked the question about "should I wear a jacket"--In work settings I always "dress for success" in the sense of being cognizant that what you wear says a lot about you. So even if you aren't in business and can get away without jackets in interviews, make sure your outfit says "Disciplined" "Capable" "Dedicated."

    For instance, when I moderate interviews, I don't have to dress up, because the respondents come to interviews in casual clothes. But clients come to watch, and I do a reverse Tiger Woods (he always wears red the last day of golf tournaments). The first day of research, especially if I haven't met the clients, I ALWAYS wear red. A red shirt, a red sweater. Anything red.

    So, I think the white pants with little black dots are fine, as long as they're not polka dots, which can look juvenile.

    Great thank you, I am in education which sometimes seems more informal. On a daily basis my principal wears nice jeans and chuck taylors. So I also don't want to look like I am seeking something more than the job offers. I never see any of our admin wear more than a structured sweater, and the superintendent often wears jeans.

    I see how my department is obsessed with accountability, especially towards my colleagues and I. But very light on actual support.

    Is this too funereal?:

    Honestly, lately when I am looking for a work type outfit or wedding or something I go to ebay and look for Flax, as they work with everything, can go up and down, and I get them for under 50 dollars. But they are used.

    I just looked and found this:

    it comes in other colors but I bought the yellowish one--this is not a good thread for me to be on, I guess.
