What I'm Wearing: Neon Glam

Hello wonderful people. Are you all pumped for the spring neon trend? I am loving the way it's being shown on the runways. It's far more sophisticated than the 80s/90s variety that we have grown accustomed to. Thank Goodness. I am not all about wearing stacked neon scrunchies ever again. You picking up what I'm throwing down?

I purchased this neon yellow-green sweater in the fall and I am so glad I bought it. It has been a breath of fresh air among my winter blacks and grays. I paired it with some soft cropped pants, nude pumps, a little bling and a healthy dose of fur. The texture of the pants along with the sparkles and fur really add a lot of glam to a plain thin sweater, don't you think?

 I was feeling super icky when I took these photo, so please excuse the bad hair and red nose!
    (I am on the mend now)
Sweater: Rue 21, Pants: Goodwill, Shoes: Bandolino via Elder Beerman,
Necklaces: Kohl's Fur: Pride and Country

How are you liking this neon look?

  32. Stunning! Am glad they re-vamped neon, because the back in the day neon was a ne-oh no no!! Everyone wore it as well, but this I agree is more sophisticated and toned down..love the sleekness of those trousers!! xx

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
