WHAT WE WORE:: NEON PT. 2

3 Dec
This is what happens when you take outfit photos at night. When you procrastinate all day long and then when you finally get out there the sun has already gone down. Luckily our highlighter clothing lights up the night sky and you can easily find us! We were practically glowing. 
This is look number two in our How to Wear Neon series! I was feeling a 90’s moment with my docs and sweater tied around my waist. Sweatshirts tied around the waist were my thing back in 7th grade. But with this neon sweater hopefully the look is a little more Jenna Lyons and a little less junior high. Nancy’s wearing her crop top with a fringe maxi skirt and spiked Litas. I’d be lying if I said I don’t try those on all the time. They’re killer. Literally, they’re so dangerous. 
ON ME:
SWEATER J.CREW / DRESS FOREVER21 / BAG CALVIN KLEIN / EARRINGS JEWELMINT / SHOES DR MARTEN
ON NANCY:
TOP TOBI / SKIRT TOBI / SHOES JEFFREY CAMPBELL / NECKLACE URBAN OUTFITTERS

DREE WEARS NEON

16 Nov

 
Here’s how Dree wears neon. If I had on leather pants, pointy toe heels, and a bead embellished jacket, I most certainly would not have thrown on a neon orange beanie. A neon orange beanie, the kind I imagine construction workers might wear, or fishermen. How did Dree make that decision to put that on? Do you think she laid out her outfit the night before, carefully planning the beanie for its unexpected statement? Or maybe she had planned a formal look but while she was out her head was cold and she needed a beanie, she ducked into a store and this orange hat was all they had. Or maybe she saw a street style photo of someone in neon, pinned it to her “Street Style” Pinterest board and then went shopping for a similar hat. Somehow, I think that it was much more effortless than all of those options.

Have a neon weekend!

WHAT WE WORE:: NEON LOOK 1

13 Nov
Nancy and I are both feeling excited about our new neon pieces – mine is a sweater from J.Crew (cashmere! majorly discounted!) and Nancy’s is a crop top turtleneck from Tobi. We’re going to be showing you a few different ways that we wear neon over the next couple of weeks, and this is Look 1. I’ll be totally up front with you, this first look was 100% inspired by this outfit. It may or may not be the whole reason I bought the sweater. 
ON ME:
SWEATER J.CREW / HAT H&M / JEANS 7 FOR ALL MANKIND / HAT ZARA / LIPSTICK REVLON / SHOES SHOEMINT (gifted)

ON NANCY:
TOP TOBI / VEST TOBI / PANTS ZARA / SHOES TARGET / BAG THRIFTED / NECKLACE WORLD MARKET / LIPSTICK REVLON

NEON BEDROOM INSPIRATION

12 Nov

 
Happy Monday everyone. This week we’re going to be looking at a trend that, until now, I have yet to take part in. Neon! I love love love citron, it’s quite possibly my favorite color. Yet I’ve never worn it myself. But this week it joined my wardrobe and I’m going to be showing you all what I’ve done with it. I’m also considering trying some neon in my home, so today’s first neon post is some bedroom inspiration. Who else is crazy about that bedside table?

DIY FILES:: Neon Shirt Dress

4 Apr
If you saw my moodboard last week, then you’ll recognize this outfit. And you’ll probably be as psyched as I was to see the following DIY by Andy of Style Scrapbook. What I lack in patience (and sewing skills machine) I hopefully make up for in enthusiasm and love for this look. 
And it actually looks relatively simple!

If any of you give this a go, I’d love to hear/see how it went!
xoxo
