She's Always Buzzing...

just like neon, neon. A few days ago my friend asked me how to embrace spring's neon trend without looking like a highlighter.  Although they are much brighter than some of their more muted siblings, neon shades are just pops of color and should be treated as such.  To avoid glowing in the dark, pair neon pieces with great basic neutrals in black, white, camel, denim or chambray.  Keep your look simple, and let the neon shine. 
If you are feeling more bold, pair neon with other neon hues, or with other pops of bright color.




 - Doesn't she look like rainbow sherbet?  So lovely!

And if you are still on the fence, start small with a shoe, accessory or neon mani/pedi and build from there.  
She's Always Buzzing...




So have you or are you embracing neon this spring?  How have you incorporated it into your wardrobe?
