tuesday trendsday: neon & neutral

Remember when everyone's favorite color was "hot," as in hot pink, or hot yellow? No? Maybe we were weird ( and still are), however while some form of "hot" is always in, neon is back in a big way! Regardless of your budget, there's room for everyone to turn up the temp. Whether it's via a few choice accessories, or you're up for going bold with a pair of hot yellow pants, neon is here to stay ( at least for a little while)! Not only are the shades  rockin, but "neon" is just a cool word, no? (Say it five times fast and it will be).

Do: heat up your basics with a little neon pop.

Don't: attempt turning the dial so far that you're competing with the sun. May we suggest pairing a few key neon pieces with some cooler neutral shades for an overall balancing effect. If you're less daring, a peek of a little hot pink sock can go a long way. :)

Personally, we're a not as daring as to don a pair of sunny bright pants; we'd be more apt to pick up that delicious orange watch or the skirt. While we swoon over BA, that's just too much to pay for a yellow shoe, no?

Happy Tuesday!


  1. I'm not bold enough to be able to go all out neon, but I love the idea of a neon pony tail holder! Any idea on where to find something similar stateside?

    1. I know Goody makes some, but probably not as cool as this. I'd also check out Claire's and perhaps Old Navy.... :)

  2. Love this trend. I want that bag! I am following you. Kisses <3<3

  3. Love your advice - I once competed with the sun on a number of occasions. I've since learnt that it only ends in failure :) xx
