Neon + Neutral


This outfit is yet another reminder of how lucky I am to be running this blog. Why? Because until I challenged myself and fellow bloggers to tryout the Neon + Neutral trend, I would have never dreamed up this outfit. And I love it.

It’s comfortable, easy, but chic enough to wear anywhere. While I suspect I’ll be repeating this outfit many more places in the future, this night I wore it to a dinner & movie date with [houston]. We had amazing drinks and tapas at a local favorite tapas bar we frequent called Oporto, and then saw “Hangover 2”. Well, [houston] saw most of it. I fell asleep. Two months of a surgery rotation will do that to ya.

This lipstick is my new favorite – it’s the hot pink seen on the model’s lips in this post, but it’s matte so it’s very unexpected and not as “look at me”, in a way.

  • You look incredible, and those shoes are to die for! I tried that skirt on today, but I'm not sure that it looked as good on me as it did you!

  • This looks great. Great idea challenging yourself with that colour combo.

  • Pretty! The neon and (edgy) wedges paired with neutral and your classic styling makes this look totally fresh and fun. It's ladylike with a twist. http://www.theclotheswewear.com

  • I like the skirt but that is it I'm afraid. Don't think the wedges are very flattering…

  • This post is making me think I need to re-think what I have in my closet and see if I can pull off something similar. I'm loving the way you pair the nude-colored top with the amazingly pink skirt! With a number of FBFF bloggers excited about this next fashion challenge it will be interesting to see all the ways they recreate this trend! – Katy

  • you look amazing.

  • Lynn Z.

    LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Rockstar AND chic at the same time!

  • I would have never thought to combine these two. It works!

    I cant wait to try to challenge myself and mix the two together.

  • You look beautiful! The skirt is stunning with the neutral, I love those shoes as well. 🙂
