SLIDER

trend salad

 skirt: free people, silk blouse: j. crew, jacket & sunglasses: h&m, tights: hue, booties: arturo chang
nails in: essie beyond cozy (gold sparkles) & sally hansen pacific blue

So wearing bright colors to begin with are not really my thing. But then the next level... neon?! When I think neon, my thoughts go to super cool athletic wear, like sneakers or shorts, which I would and do totally wear. But something in my actual wardrobe? I admit this shirt was an impulse buy as I succumbed to the neon trend. But hey, it's good to step out of your comfort zone, and I still paired it with all black. I don't think yellow really does any favors for my skin tone, so I tried to not have it directly contiguous to my skin.

P.s I really don't know why I look so incredibly pissed off in these pictures. I think I tend to scrunch up my face when I'm thinking about something. So sorry for my apparently angry visage

P.P.s so many photos!!! (well.. more than my usual 2)

P.P.P.S drugstore.com has 30% off all makeup! Ending tonight (I think)

  7. people in those cars must be wondering who are you! i love watching people stare at me now, but before, it made me make realy weird faces. you atually just look like a moody model here, so that's not bad. and I LOVE the neon yellow top on you. And party nail FTW.

    1. Worse than people in cars staring at me... a whole bus load of people! Obviously the traffic wasn't moving so it wasn't even as if they were passing me, no, they got the chance to thoroughly stare. So awkward!

  17. Ooh neon looks so perfect against black and white - I'm glad you took the neon plunge! (J.Crew has made me a bright-color convert, too).

    Hope you have a great weekend! :)
