Bloggers Do It Better: Neon + Neutral





It’s time for another “Blogger’s Do It Better” challenge… YAY! Even though this is only my second time partaking in the BDIB challenges I have quickly grown to love them and I can’t wait to have fun stepping up to these challenges. This time around the challenge was to combine neon colors with neutrals. I have to admit it took me a few days of trying on different outfits before I finally decided that this one was what I was going to go with.  I really don’t have many neon pieces in my wardrobe so I’m not sure why it took me so long to put something together. I guess that’s part of the fun, mixing and matching things to see what looks best.

I went with this very bright yellow number because like I said it’s one of the few neon items that I own. It’s actually a dress that I’m wearing as a shirt. Hey who says that you have to wear something only one way? I love wearing my clothing in multiple ways dresses as skirts and shirts, skirts as dresses. I believe that there is always something more you can do with an item you just have to get a little creative. Besides, I want my money’s worth.  I mixed the tan colored skirt in because I felt that black was too much of a contrast and I just wasn’t in the mood to do a black combination. The khaki jacket I added as a way to downplay the brightness of the yellow. But I actually like the pics without the jacket better than the pics with the jacket. This challenge was also the perfect opportunity to break out my snakeskin wedge sandals that I got from Payless about a month or so ago. They were part of the Christian Siriano (aka former Project Runway winner) collection. I love his partnership with Payless, his shoes and purses are so amazing.

Dress & Skirt: Old Navy
Jacket: Gifted
Shoes: Payless

I think I like the pictures where you are not wearing the jacket. The jacket is super cute but the outfit is even cuter :-)
