Just Alittle Neon

TGIF!!! I hope everyone has amazing plans for the weekend. I’ll be watching the Super Bowl at my BFF’s house. She & her hubby are Giants fans, so I’ll have to listen to their gloating if the Giants win (Nooo!!!). I’m a native New Yorker but I’ve been in Philadelphia since 1996 so I identify more with the Eagles than the Giants.

So neon is making a comeback? I remember wearing pink neon socks with “Frankie Says Relax” t-shirts back in the 80’s when I was in junior HS . You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t “funky fresh” …LOL!!! This is when I began to love wearing color. I would wear all kinds of bright neon colors together(I was color blocking ahead of my time!). All my mom could do was laugh and shake her head. There were plenty of days when I left the house looking like Rainbow Bright!

My outfit today pays homage to my neon beginnings. Some people are afraid to wear neon colors but if you keep it simple you can pull it off. Start by pairing neon colors with dark bottoms or wear with neutrals. Take baby steps and before you know it youll be wearing neon like a pro!

Will you be following the neon trend this Spring/Summer? If so, what colors will you wear?

    Hello lovely! I got your comment and you are now on the blogroll!
    Love your gorgeous smile which is as bright as your beautiful yellow neon sweater. I love the trend of brights- things are hard to see in a cynical way when you wear bold and bright colors.
