Orange Pop


This is my second outfit post in one week!  Normally, I don't do that, but it just happened to be the way the challenges fell on the timeline.  This edition of the Bloggers Do It Better challenge was inspired by the Spring 2011 runway look of neon + neutrals. 

To be completely honest, I only had a couple "neon" options in my closet, so it was pretty easy to pick this time.  Still, I was really torn between this print blouse and wearing my new bright red blazer (seen here) with a nude skirt.  But, in the end, this won because my husband pointed out that I have worn a blazer/jacket in every outfit post thus far - so it was time for a change!  Of course, after we took all our shots and I was uploading them, I regretted not choosing the bolder combo.  Maybe next time...




What I'm wearing:
LOFT top & trousers, Via Spiga belt, Aldo shoes, Michael Kors watch, Vintage bracelets, Target earrings (Essie nail polish - Mink Muffs, L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick - Volcanic & Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Papaya)

I like the way you styled neon and neutral. The top is great since it already has the two colors in it. I haven't seen that color combo in a patterend top before. And I like how you went neutral with your nails. That's really unexpected!
