adventures of the wandering whippycakes: poppy // south carolina

 tee: gift from DOTS / tank: f21 / boyfriend jeans: GAP / nerd glasses: rue21
Vance booties: c/o Blowfish Shoes / knit scarf: c/o Somerknits / Poppy brooch: Whippycake

for those of you brand new to the adventures of the traveling Whippycakes, here's a little introduction. the idea of the Whippycake adventures started in Phoenix, AZ back in April of this year.  five friends, five blogs, and five Whippycakes. 

and today, i got the chance to rock out the Poppy (originally owned by Lindsay - doesn't it remind you of her? Hawaii and sunshine?!). i love the burst of yellow it exudes, making it the perfect match to my mustard yellow knit scarf. i think that is what makes the Whippycakes so awesome - they are so versatile and can work with your wardrobe in more than so many ways. (see HERE, HERE, and oh yes, HERE.)

and be sure to check out all the other Whippycakes being featured across blog world today:

Lindsay of Aisle to Aloha

much love.
