swing dress (old navy) - sandals (aldo, old) - belt (idk)
So my Old Navy order thankfully did not work out, save for this one dress. I've worn it way too many times since I've gotten it. It's stretchy, swingy, light, and very breezy. The material feels casual, but the color also makes it pretty appropriate for work as well! The shape itself is trapeze-y, and drapes right over my hips. Very cute without a belt, despite not defining my waist at all. I do like it with a belt as well. Overall, it feels right and I knew this dress was mine from the moment I laid eyes on it.
Skeptical face in the photo - not on purpose, but fitting with my thoughts about my 5 year plan, which funnily came up during a conversation with my boss's boss.
I'm feeling like I'll be at a crossroads soon, where the decision is to continue on with my career, or to pause for a bit to go back to school. The expectation is on my from a variety of figures in my life to go back. But I'm not really sure what I would go back to school for. I feel like I've lost so much theoretical knowledge to go back for another Statistics degree. At the same time, I'm not sure if it's worth it to drop money on an MBA (what's the value?), nor do I think that I have enough experience to go back for one yet. Have you ever gone through this? Or do you have an MBA? I'd be curious to know if your advanced degree has helped you in a practical way at work.
In other news, I received the Ted Baker jacket today and will probably write a post tomorrow or the next about it!
