This season is the time to shine! Summer is calling for neon hues, flower power and crop tops galore! I was a little opposed to the crop top trend until I found a way to sport it. I layered this all white 2 piece with a floral bomber jacket. It was cute, simple and added an 80s flare. Because we’re flashing back to a lot of 80s inspiration I had to pull out a pair of neon pumps.
Floral prints are a big summer must. Whether you are wearing an all over printed playsuit or rocking a pair of pants covered in peonies, add FLORAL to your Summer must haves. I wear my floral bomber jacket with literally EVERYTHING!! It breaks up an otherwise boring outfit and is lightweight enough to wear in even the hottest places.
For those nay sayers, get over your print phobia and grow a green thumb.
*SHOE TIP* When wearing all white, accent with colorful accessories. Pick a color that compliments your accessories. Cobalt blue is everyones favorite go-to outside of the otherwise safe black. Try to find a necklace or bracelets with the matching hue to break up your stark white look.
Clearly I’m nuts for neon and OVERLY excited for Summer fashion. One staple I always recommend EVERY girl to have in her wardrobe… A classic pencil skirt. Typically I stick with black, but this white little number was screaming my name. There’s something about wearing a pencil skirt in a non traditional way that says style…. Be experimental, pick a chic sweater but make sure not to swallow up the skirt. And wear LOTS of color! Mix n’ Match, it’s the cool thing to do!
I loved this cable knit mellow yellow ombre sweater that I layered over an ivory crop top. It kept this look crisp and cool. If you’re planning to layer on a sweater with your pencil, make sure its lightweight and breathable. No sweating PLEASE!!! Layer light. Defeats the whole purpose of an effortless look if you’re peeling off your layers. Try a complimentary pump. It doesn’t need to be matchy-matchy, just something that belongs in your fashion story. The shoes were flirting with me so I slipped into them, and completed my look with a white acrylic bag. If you are contemplating buying a neon bright shoe, do it with confidence. Trust me, you will create outfits you never knew possible by adding some bold feet candy! Dont take fashion too seriously. Break the rules and most importantly, have fun with your wardrobe!
** Fashion Tip **
When wearing white: Invest in a nude color spanx. You never know how sheer the white fabric is. Spanx not only help with hiding your muffin top but they help avoid panty bunching.
If you simply can’t wear a spanx, (you people totally exist) lol Then buy a seamless panty. ”Commando” makes an incredible nude seamless panty. You will get a big THANK YOU from the girl behind you when you’re pretty pink panties aren’t showing because you listened to me and wore the proper undergarments.
Yay to fashion tips!!

Spring time has FINALLY arrived. Ahhhhh and I’m so OBSESSED!!! Shower me in NEON please!!! There’s definitely some Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to rocking this ultra vibrant hue.
DO sport more than one shade of neon, keep it tasteful babes. Choose one shade of neon in an over the top statement jacket and accent with that color. I pulled a neon yellow hue in the print of my Equipment floral bomber jacket and made my shoes and handbag do all the talking.
DO tone down your eye candy outfit with neutral undertones. White and neon is HUGE right now. It’s crisp, clean and cool.
DO Try a light blue denim with your bright hues. It’s an amazing color to compliment neon as opposed to something safe like white.
DO opt for neon leather if you are in search of the perfect “summer” bag. You don’t have to worry about staining a durable perforated neon bag as opposed to any and all white leather bags. You will thank me after you get the first stain on your bright white baby.
DON’T think Neon is a one-season wonder, so buy with an ‘all year round ‘ mentality.
Lastly, for the love of the fashion gawds, PLEASE DON’T wear neon with black. It’s a big time fashion NO, NO!!
