I have somehow gotten myself stuck in this rut of wearing only black, white and gray this past week, and have found I am in desperate need of some serious color.  I tried to stay as far away from neutrals as possible, and I love the effect of pairing different shades of the same color family, then throwing in a little extra pop with a contrasting color and some leopard print.  This definitely did the trick and brought me out of my neutral coma . . . for the moment at least!
