Outfit Post : Neon + neutral

Blouse: Victoria's Secret, Maxi skirt: Old Navy (also love this one and this one), Heels: Aldo, Clutch: c/o Francesca's Collections (similar), Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Bracelets: Forever 21, H&M, Fornash, ASOS (in silver) and Macy's (similar), Watch: Michael Kors

I predicted here that you'd be seeing this neon/neutral color combination again, and I've definitely fulfilled my promise with this outfit. Although this time instead of spicing up a neutral look, I'm toning down the neon. I mean, you definitely can't miss someone when they're wearing a billowy neon maxi. But pairing it with a very normal, earthy color makes it much less - er - abrasive on the eyes.

Neon has been, by far, the trend I've most embraced this season. I don't consider myself a slave to fashion or to trends, but this is one I can really get behind. Wearing bright colors doesn't always come naturally to me, so this is kind of a big step and I've really gotten comfortable with the idea of sporting such bold hues. In fact, I can't seem to get enough of them! Also, maxi skirts. Can't seem to get enough of them either.

Happy Wednesday!



  1. Okay, now I must got buy a nude colored blouse like this so I can wear it with my neon green maxi! This would make a great brunch outfit for Sunday in Cali, btw! :)
