Pretending Spring is Here

Happy first day of Spring everyone! Hope it actually feels like it is wherever you are. It feels like the dead of Winter here, I was freezing today!

But that doesn’t mean I can’t pretend, right?

So in preparation for Marion’s link up tomorrow where she is hosting Trend of the Month Challenge: Neon I decided to put together an outfit that I will wear when warmer weather eventually does come our way… I admittedly don’t have a ton of neon stuff, but I do love color and think a pop of neon is a fun way to brighten things up – as long as we don’t get too 80’s – I mean if those shirt tie things, the ones that you looped the corner of your shirt through, come back then we are in trouble! : ) I saw this shirt online at Ann Taylor this past weekend and, given I had some gift cards there burning a hole in my pocket and they were having 40% off, I stalked it down at the store. It wasn’t even out on the floor yet so of course I asked the sales guy and he kindly pulled it out of a box for me. It never hurts to ask! I also scored a pair of adorable coral cropped denim jeans – I don’t see them online, but check the stores, the fit is great.

Anyway, back to the neon outfit. I decided this would be fun tucked into my denim pencil skirt and then I added my hot pink shoes for an extra pop of color. Yellow and pink is a great combo I think. So if you are in the majority of the country sucking up the warm weather, for goodness sakes, send it here so I can wear this out of the house! (and perhaps get a tan while I’m at it) Be sure to go to Marionberry Style tomorrow to see how everyone else wears their neon!

ps. this shirt looks more neon in person…

You are so pretty Amy! I adore this Ann Taylor top… the lace detail is so ladylike and the color is amazing on you (I actually prefer neons that aren’t quite so shocking!)
Thanks so much for linking-up on my first Trend of the Month Challenge 🙂

PS – the shoes were a perfect choice


    You are so sweet, thanks for hosting, lots of fun!


Such a great outfit and your hair is just gorgeous! I love how you’ve incorporated texture in your shoes and the lace in your top, they both add so much visual interest. I don’t feel like I’m being overwhelmed by neon (which happens a lot with neon outfits). Two enthusiastic thumbs up!


    Thank so much Callandra! I love your blog, will definitely have to peruse for outfit ideas : )


love the outfit!! wish i had your sense of style =) (and btw…is it just my eyes but does the second picture look sharper compared to the first???) happy spring!!


    Thanks MC, I’m sure you have a great style too. I think you might be right, I’m far from being a professional photog…
