Notice I didn’t say “and not look like a highlighter.”
Maybe I do look like a highlighter. I don’t ask questions I don’t want to hear the answers to.
Too bad. I did shorten the sleeves on this one (much like I did on this shirt), but it didn’t need it like that shirt did. It just isn’t long sleeve weather yet and I really wanted to be able to wear this shirt immediately (I am a paragon of patience here). It’s a pretty great shirt – I love the pinking on the shoulders and I really love the buttons up the back.
And then, to prove to myself that I could wear a neon pink shirt with more than just dark jeans (I finally used my certificate for a free pair of Gap jeans that I won from doing the 31 for 31 challenge back in May), I spent a little time coming up with other ways to wear it. And. . .what do you know. I actually own a lot of things that go well with neon pink.
A versatile grandma shirt if there ever was one.
I started out easy – a little metallic belt to break up all that pink.
Then, much less timid, with this pencil skirt (which I love so much. But size up. Seriously).
And with my white jeans (Merrick promises me that white jeans aren’t just for summer). Plus any excuse I have to wear these shoes, which get compliments from every single person I see, even old men at the grocery store, is an excuse I’ll take. (I’m a fan of the shirt knot too).
Hello, eighties. In a good way, I think. I bought these pants as a birthday present to myself (with a gift card), and I really love them. As I do pretty much any pair of pants from Forever 21.
And, then, a nice gloomy gray skirt to contrast with the “HELLO I AM SO HAPPY” pink top. And polka dot shoes because. . . well, when aren’t polka dot shoes a good idea?
