I've been playing around with the neon trend as of late (look out for future outfit posts featuring some really bright colors!) and I think I'm liking it. I've been trying to include it in ways that I wouldn't normally (see below). I think bright colors do an amazing job in breaking up a neutral or monochromatic color palette. I was at H&M yesterday and literally went into the store on 3 separate occasions to scope out the little clutch you see below. Normally, I wouldn't have opted for this particular color but I literally dared myself to buy it and make it work. They had black (which I might buy as well) and a coral color. The tulip dress I am wearing was purchased ages ago and is from ASOS' main range. It is a size 14 and has a smocked waist. I absolutely love the pattern and the subtle puff shoulder detail. The original plan for this outfit was to forgo tights but there was a slight chill to the air and I had not yet shaved my legs. The latter reality essentially shut down any possibility for a bare-legged pic. I'm not really a fan of these tights (or tights in general) but it is what it is. These particular tights do this crazy bunchy thing at the ankle which I hate. I guess alot of "tight pulling" is in the cards for me today.
