Let There Be Light

Dress: Urban Outfitters, $15 // Cardi: GAP, purchased with gift certificate courtesy of GAP and Lucky Magazine // Shoes: Madden Girl via Salvation Army, $1.50

Success! I managed to achieve both of my goals from yesterday. Namely, a pretty dress and lots of light. I will admit to using the old commuter's trick of switching my shoes upon arrival at the office. You gotta do what you gotta do.

Now that it's been a few days, I feel like I'm getting into the groove of the 30 for 30. While I didn't put much planning into my selection of garments, I brainstormed a big list of outfit ideas. Not all of them will be winners, but I'm looking forward to the journey. Hopefully the habits of remixing and posting more often will stick long after the end of the month.

Oh, and thank you to my co-worker for taking these shots! You're lovely and talented and should take my picture everyday. Hehe.

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.

If I was a rich mom -

The belt actually came with a dress I bought at Kohl's.

The detailing at the dress and the shape of the belt are both really awesome! I've decided the same thing about the 30 for 30--they might not all be fabulous, but that's not what it's all about!

You look so pretty! The entire outfit is super flattering but the color of the dress has to be the best part. :) Did you do anything to your hair recently? It looks to be a little more platinum than I remember. Very nice!
