My happy dress and the Lime Ricki giveaway winner

Belt: Thrifted; Shoes: Seychelles (similar)

This Shabby Apple Overboard dress is my absolute favorite summer dress. It's cotton, it's gingham, and it just makes me feel happy. A girl should always have a dress that makes her feel happy. (And pssst, Shabby Apple is giving this dress away on their Facebook page! Just click "Win a Summer Dress" at the top.) Oh, and how cute is this brooch? I was so pleased with how well it went with my happy dress.  

If you follow me on Instagram (@kristineorpolly), you may have noticed that I was in California for the past few days. It was an exciting time, filled with good food, friends, celebrities, the beach, Settlers of Catan, crazy drivers, and incredible weather. I basically fell in love, which is good, because I have a slight announcement to make... that I will make on Monday, because I have to go now. I'm such a tease. But I think you can guess what it is...(It's not a baby. I think I always need to clarify that.)

And now, the winner of the Lime Ricki swimsuit giveaway is....

Becky! I'll be sending you an e-mail shortly. Please respond within 48 hours or I will have to pick another winner. Congratulations! If you didn't win, you can receive 15% off at Lime Ricki with the code "KRISTINE15". Happy shopping!
