primary colors

hello lovely,
i haven't style blogged in a long time, but i was looking rather colorful on a warm july day and asked my moon to snap a few photos. this outfit was so bright and cheery. i pieced the look together one morning when i was feeling in an exceptionally good mood and wanted it to last. it definitely brightened up my work day.  my thrifted scarf tied everything together and i felt happy all day long.
