Outfit of the Day…..NEONPosted: August 9, 2012
I busted out the hot pink pants today. For me, neon is still relevant. I especially love pairing neon with sophisticated colors. To wear neon successfully, especially for anyone over 25, balance the trendiness with timeless colors such as dove grey, beige, white (of course), charcoal grey and blush pink (that combo would be great!). I chose to balance my neon (hello pants!) with my nude wedges and the slight vintage feel of this floral blouse. I need to wear these pants before fall comes unless I devise a clever way to wear them in colder weather. Boots? I don’t think so – still thinking on that challenge. Stay tuned.

Necklaces: (top to bottom) 1) Raw green sapphire necklace by hitchcock Madrona. 2) Vintage brass chain (personal). 3) Vintage rhinestone brooch necklace by Thea Grant. I love the play between the flowers on my blouse and the leaf/flower shapes of the brooch. Layering similar shapes creates depth and dimension.
