As for the bright colors, I chose these yellow linen shorts (Forever 21 $14.80). I love yellow and I love the dressy but casual-ness of the linen.

Mint colored maxi dress (Forever 21 $10). This is one of the few maxis that are actually wearable and stylish.

Now this piece of work came from Goodwill ($2.50). It consists of bold shades of blues, purples, green, and big red roses. It was a made to be a skirt but just throw it on up and wrap a belt around it and it makes a better dress.
Elephant bracelet (Forever 21 $6.80) ..and it was the last one :) I love it.
