Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved neon yellow. It all started out with my mother’s love for knitting. She knitted me a straight long sleeved neon yellow dress with a crew neck. This dress was the perfect dress that I loved to wear with a great wide brown belt with silver colored buckle and brown tights. I loved this dress. Thanks Mom.
Ever since, I have had a knack for neon yellow. However, growing up it moved from right in the face and full on like that dress, to small doses, i.e. as small stripes like in this dress, a necklace, belts, pom pom hat, and shoes. When my last pair of neon pumps were worn out, I started to search for the next pair. The long search has an end: I found my perfect new pair of neon yellow pumps.
Yes, neon yellow at 40+ sounds risky. However, with a classic all neutral monochromatic outfit they are the perfect pop of color to create interest. Thus, thumbs up for neon yellow!
The above was my outfit at the office. For the commute I wore my Cole Hann shearling motorcycle jacket with my gray pom pom hat, and my new bag that my husband gave me for Valentines Day this year.
