What to wear?

I just received an invitation to interview at a large software company. The invitation specified a dress code, can you help me parse it?
The e-mail says that the dress code is casual and that jeans or khakis are the norm and then says, "so please dress accordingly." This is a large software company in the midwest. I'm female and will be interviewing for an administrative support position. I typically err on the side of dressing more formal for job interviews, but I'm wondering what the cultural expectations might be here because I've never been explicitly told how to dress for a job interview before, and I've never worked for a software company. Do they literally want me to show up in khakis and a sweater to a job interview? Or, should I still wear my formal business attire? Or, am I misreading this and it's just meant to set me at ease, as in, "you're welcome to dress accordingly" rather than "we expect you to dress accordingly"?
