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.

    Absolutely love it! I wasn't sure how I'd feel about neon + neutral, but this take on it is something I could see myself wearing. Can't wait for the BDIB link up to see what everyone else comes up with!

    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!

  18. 06.13.2011 / 2:15 pm

    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…

  27. 06.14.2011 / 6:38 am

    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

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

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