lighten up

{Zara blazer, American Apparel sweatshirt, UO jeans, Nine West boots, necklaces: Bauble Bar & Forever 21, bracelets: Jewelmint, F21, vintage, gifted}

Believe it or not I've had this hi-lighter blazer for months now- purchased in the peak of the neon trend season- and this is the first time I'm wearing it! I know, I don't know how I passed over this brilliant jacket in lieu of something more subdued time and time again, either. While I have no problem pairing this neon hued piece with a flamingo printed skirt, or leopard cropped pants, I choose to go with a basic grey canvas to highlight (pun intended) the jacket and a multitude of accessories that I seem to not be able to go without.

How do you do the neon trend? I'd love to hear more suggestions on how to wear this piece? 


  1. Love the jacket! It would look great with some bright hot pink pumps!

  2. Great choice. I love every single piece !


  3. Lovely, just perfect the way you mixed the basic outfit with that jacket and accessories. Perfect to go from day to night! xx

  4. Gorgeous look. I love the neon.

  16. Haha funny! - I do that all the time, obviously NOTHING to do with my compulsive shopping habit that I buy things and leave them in my closet for months...nothing at all...of course not...nope...

    Anyhoo I'd love to see you mixing it up with print (like you do so well!) ... printed pants maybe?
