First off, thank you so much for your comments yesterday!  I rebelled against the Color Brigade and decided to wear something a little more monochromatic.  It felt good.  :)

For today I'm back to some brights!  I took some inspiration from the Color Brigade and paired some pink and yellow together.  (Bonus points if you find the the inspiration outfit!)  I ended up throwing in some polka-dots too to round it out.  We all know that you can never go wrong with polka-dots. 
I know you guys have been all been anxious about the Vintage Scarf giveaway.  Well, the winner is Hanna of http://banhannas.blogspot.com.  Congratulations!!  Please contact me at kileen@gmail.com within 48 hours to claim your prize.  
If you didn't win, don't worry.  You can take 10% off your order with The Vintage Scarf using discount code CUTE10!
