I ... I just don't know. I have really fair coloring, so if it's not exactly the right bold shade, I look limp and washed out. And I'm really a more classic dresser, tossing in a tip-of-my-hat to extreme fashion-forwardness here and there. I find I need to go easy or feel awkward and not-like-myself when it comes to the really out-there trends. But I want to play along, so I fiddled around with neons and came up with this simple combination for a day of sightseeing this weekend in Chicago. (Al and I have a date, and we're hosting some dear old friends from our Atlanta days. I absolutely can't wait... I think it's exactly what I need, and what Al needs, and what WE need together, as us.)
The sweater is a lightweight wool to stave off the chill, but I think I've kept it light enough to give it a bright, springy look and vibe. I may have to switch out the electric blue pumps for my trusty Bass dirty bucks if the sightseeing gets beyond a block from the hotel. (I stupid-love those shoes anyway so I'm good with either.)
Are y'all doing neon this season? Tell me how you see it working with your current wardrobe and lifestyle.
