east vs west [coast] style. neon.

yowza...it's bright in here!
this week we're rocking neon, and nothing says bright like neon. these bright colors are bold enough to stand on their own, or pair them with another bright color if you dare. looking to tone it down? keep it casual and pair it with neutrals. the great thing about neon is that it's truly wearable. introduce bright colors into your wardrobe with small doses like a belt, scarf, or bag. hope you find some inspiration here, because spring loves brights!

don't forget to visit the girls.

east
Jackie / Living After Midnite / New York
Meaghan / District Sparkle / D.C.
Tracy / TheRightShoes / New York

west

Ashley / Golden Divine / California
Becks / oomph. / Hawaii


daylight doesn't accurately portray the brightness of these hi-lighter yellow shorts. while i'm not afraid to rock this bold color, i also love the flip side of pairing brights with neutrals. i've been slowly growing my collection of tees, and this creamy Paradise Lost tee felt like the perfect match for these shorts. plus, it is uber soft and comfortable!
long time readers know that i have a favorite gold ring very similar to this one. i am so happy to have this one in silver.

i was worried this bag was going to be huge and heavy, but it's the perfect size. absolutely loving the style and color.

  2. I really love neon colours, the brighter the better. My only irritant is that a lot of neon clothes come in styles that don't interest me. Thankfully 60's and 70's vintage is still pretty full of some hella bright colours too heh. Your outfit looks great, really chill and casual without being blinding.
