Bloggers Do It Better: Neon Neutral

One thing I can honestly say about these challenges from Pretty Shiny Sparkly is that every one really challenges me to think out of my fashion box and try new outfit combinations that I would’ve never thought of!  This time around we are taking on the Neon Neutral trend, where you take a basic color like brown, white, or black and add a pop of bright, neon color.  It could be anything from a dress or skirt to a belt or handbag.  My first thought when I received the challenge email was to use this lime green dress that until the 30×30 challenge I rarely wore it.  I got it for a steal but then it ended up in the back of the closet because I just didn’t know how to work with it.  Now it’s coming out one more time and instead of rocking it as a dress, I thought it would be a great skirt to go with this black top.  Threw on those pumps that I completely forgot about and viola!  Another remix!  I’m pretty happy with it, though  I’m keeping my eye out for some more neon clothes and accessories to really rock this trend!
