Fridays Fancies | Hello, Neon

Happy Friday my fabulous friends!  (How about a little alliteration to start your Friday?)  This week's Friday's Fancies is all about neon and, I have to admit, I wasn't too excited about it at first.  When I think of neon clothing, I have horrid flashbacks to the fashion of the late 80s / early 90s.  I may have only been in elementary school at the time but, trust me, no one was immune to those highlighter hued outfits.


Then I started browsing Pinterest (obvi) and discovered a whole new world of modern and chic neons.  I had no idea such a thing existed.  Finally, I found a neon I could work with.  So then I started doing a bit of (internet) window shopping and found some neon pieces I could actually see myself wearing, like this neon skirt from J Crew.  On its own, it's way too bright and kind of reminds me of my case books from law school.  But . . . I kinda love it paired with a chambray top and preppy accessories.  The earthy neutrals and casual top transform it into a neon piece I could actually see myself wearing.  Now if only my wallet would let me go shopping. . . .

  1. I have to admit that I get terrible 80's style flashbacks when I think of neon trends :-) I do like your take on it though, the denim shirt and shoes look beautiful with it. Have a lovely weekend xo

  3. I really like mixing neons in with work clothes - it's unexpected and modern and all those things that bring a little spunk to a normally beige work place
