{color love} neon!

I rarely wear color.   Well, let me say this: I mostly wear black.  So to find myself drawn to neon was a bit strange.  But, I'm loving it!  
What a way to welcome 2012!

and just in case you had any doubt as to how chic neon really can be, 
rest easy:

Are you wearing neon in 2012?

hope your day is cheery & bright,

{ps}: thank you for the sweet comments about Friday's outfit! 
I had several questions about the necklace & blazer so I thought I would answer them here.
My monogram necklace is from Max & Chloe and has quickly become my favorite piece of jewelry I own! 
It is a $200 investment but it's real gold.  And since I've worn it every day, I think it's worth it! (I have the larger size, there's a smaller one as well.) 
You can get yours here!
The blazer is from a cute little boutique in our town via my mom's closet.  Sad to report they don't have an online shop yet!

I pretty much always have black on + some neutral. This was just the inspiration I needed to get some neon going in my life!

I mostly wear black as well, but I have been trying to add more color into my wardrobe. I love your neon picks!

Yes, I'm going to embrace neon this year! I love neon accessories so I'm thinking either a cluch or jewelry. :)

I also wear a lot of black but this neon trend is pretty fantastic! I need to branch out :)

Lynsey Michelle said...

Yes, yes, yes to the neon! I bought one neon blouse last season but am thinking of taking my collection a bit further...starting with that pink dress! Ha!

I have totally been craving neon as well! Especially shoes and accessories!

I'll definitely be wearing neon in 2012 (post up tomorrow!) hehe I'm definitely trying to fill my closet with more color. I'm completely guilty of the New Yorker wardrobe of too much black and grey :)

that pink dress is amazing!

Sarah Roads said...

I'm with you, my wardrobe is mostly black and some neutrals. I have just started branching into the neon world, slowly. Love it in accessories, that clutch and necklace- oh yes. And the dress is classic.

Thanks for showing off your style on Monday Mingle! I don't think I can pull off neon but I love seeing it.

Goody said...

i will definitely be giving neon a little whirl this year.

black is and will always be my fav but pantone hit the button with tangerine...it is my pop color of choice, so i will be colorful this year as the warmer months return!
