Neon Striped



This vertical striped skirt is one that I found on eBay months ago and has just sat unworn in my closet.  The neutral black/white pattern and classic pencil shape make it incredibly versatile, so I'm not sure why it took me so long to pull it out & wear it.  But, when I brought home this linen sweater, I realized the bright neon hue would strike a perfect balance with the skirt's graphic stripes.




What I'm wearing:
J. Crew sweater (here), White House Black Market skirt (via eBay), BCBG sandals, ALDO clutch (on sale here), J. Crew necklace (via eBay), Bracelets: Vintage & Forever 21, Mudd sunnies (on sale here), Nails: Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet, Toes: Essie Bikini So Teeny, Lips: Revlon Blase Apricot

Love it! Bright colors are always my favorite for summer. I wear too much black winter long so it's always a nice reprieve!

http://luv4anouka.com has some great brightly colored tops and I'm looking forward to seeing what they have for fall.

You were so right; those colors really do look great together. And I wish there were more vertical stripe skirts out there! I see plently of horizontal stripes, but since I'm wider on bottom than on top, they don't look so hot wrapped around my butt.
