How to Choose the Right MBA Program For You

Thanks for all of your support for last week’s posts, lovelies! I so enjoyed reading each and every email, comment, and DM – it so makes my day to know my posts are answering all of your questions and that y’all appreciate my posts.

Since y’all liked this post and this post so much, I thought I’d kick off this week by answering another question from y’all: how to choose the right MBA program for you.

As most of you know, I just finished my first year of my MBA program here in Dallas. I spent months deliberating between the various MBA programs. Looking back now, I have zero doubt that I made absolutely the right decision for me. So it’s about time I shared how I came to that decision.

How to Dress Like Yourself in Business Professional + Some BIG News

How to Dress Like Yourself in Business Professional

Business professional is notoriously one of those attires with little to no room for personality. True business professional requires a navy, gray, or black suit. Pants and a blazer, skirt and a blazer, dress and a blazer.

Basically you have a total of nine possibilities. An entire category of clothing for nine options. WTF.

So you’re probably sitting there, saying to yourself “yeah, Amanda… this isn’t news. Why the F are you talking about business professional attire?”

Weeeeeelllllll drumroll please….

How I Stay Organized with iStratus DayPlanner

I definitely underestimated how challenging it would be to balance business school and the blog. When I was working, the work typically ended when I got home; I could use the post-work time to focus on the blog. Now, as an MBA student, the work never ends. Any given night, I’m up past 11PM working on either the blog or my schoolwork.

And then you throw in the wrench that is group projects: coordinating 5 peoples’ schedules to perfectly align is a lot more challenging than you think it would be. Staying organized and keeping a regular schedule became nearly impossible. And then I started using iStratus DayPlanner as my main organizational tool on my phone.

Professional in Pink

How to wear pink to work

So this is going up a few hours later than originally planned. Why? Because somebody went out to HG SPLY last night and enjoyed their amazing frozen Moscow Mules (yes, really enjoyed) and forgot to hit “schedule” when she got home. So here we go.

I love showing a bit of femininity in professional settings. Figuring out how to wear pink to work or throwing in a bow here or there… there are so many ways to bring in girly style to the workplace.

Burgundy Sheath Dress (Under $100!)

Well, hay there, stranger! It’s been a hot minute since you last heard from me. After nearly a month of almost-constant traveling, I’m finally back in Dallas. My last of the four trips was last week at Disney World. Unfortunately, I caught a cold from one of the children aka miniature disease incubators. And now I’m just about dying at my apartment. So if this post makes no sense whatsoever, please blame the anti-cold meds.

But I’m back. And that’s what matters.

To celebrate my return, I thought I’d share one of my favorite purchases from last fall: this burgundy sheath dress. This dress fits like a friggin’ glove, is available in three colors, and is under $70 right now!

I so dig.
