Neon Pink & Prints - 101st Post!

I wore this outfit to church on Sunday. When we were in church my husband mouthed something to me, I thought it was to complain about the behaviour of our sons, it was "I love what you're wearing".

Mixing neon's or brights can be difficult, the easiest thing to do is to pair them with white or black and I love easy, however, I wanted to try and be creative (difficult) so I decided to mix some neon's together.

There is no bright pink in the blouse but there is neon yellow which goes with the neon pink. Articles of clothing don't need to match but they need to go. If you are having a difficult time with finding complimentary colours I would suggest purchasing a colour wheel, you can buy them at Wal-Mart or Michael's, to make it an easy exercise. The colour wheel is not just for dressing, it helps with home decor, scrap booking, gift wrapping...you get the picture.

Love the sleeve detail.

I'll say it, what is with my hair!?!? Stupid Toronto humidity, but I just couldn't find a better full length shot so you could see the outfit head on.

Yes, a red sole. I got a pair. Why? Because for me no one does a better nude. This was my birthday present to myself. My husband said I'm done buying shoes for a while...I don't know...for now yes...

Blouse - Ann Taylor
Skirt - J Crew
Shoes - Christian Louboutin
Watch - Michael Kors
Bracelets - Forever 21, The Bay

  2. I love how you mix and match patterns and colors that I normally wouldn't. Seeing this combination on someone else really shows that it works. Love the outfit.

  3. This looks great! I never would have thought of pairing that top with the hot pink skirt, but it totally works!

    1. Thanks Andi! I just needed to get more wear out of both pieces and figured it out. Fun when it comes together!
