Mrs. Brightside and day 3 of 30 for 30





































Look at that sunshine! See, if you pretend like it's not winter it will miraculously turn into spring. Hence the floral print dress. I got a lot of compliments on this outfit today, and I felt like it was a no-brainer. The tights and cardigan keep it professional for work but the bright pattern and the purple shoes add that element of fun. The dress was a lucky find at Gabriel Brother's for $20, and I have had people tell me they thought it was from J.Crew. Money well spent. I layered my white button up underneath to dress it down a bit. An easy accessory to brighten up any look is a nice shade of red lipstick. I actually had two men tell me how much they liked it today. I also got to break out my new favorite shades. I have been trying not to wear them too much for fear of thinking I am too cool. Basically, I was Reaganing today, and I don't mean lying under oath.
Ray Ban Wayfarers; Gabriel Brother's dress; NY&Co. button up; Nordstrom BP cardigan; Pearls (gift); Antoion Melani shoes ($17!)
