She's Always Buzzin' Like Neon

Wearing – Top: J.Crew {old, same}; Pants: Old Navy | Shoes: Steve Madden | Necklace: Purple Peridot {similar} | Watch: Michael Kors | Ring: David Yurman

To say I'm "chipper" in the morning is a complete understatement. I am, as described by Kacie, a perky Disney princess who walks around singing and speaking to birds and animals. I drive everyone around me absolutely nuts with my early-bird behavior (see here for further proof). It could be 3:00am or 8:00am and I'm still eager as ever to start my day. So this neon top fits my personality–bright and pretty much in your face. 

I wavered back and forth about posting this because it is fall, but since the weather in Indiana can't pick a season, either can my wardrobe. I mean seriously, when you wake up and it's 45 degrees out and by mid afternoon it's 80, how are you suppose to dress? Summer? Fall? Bath robe? The jury is still out on the verdict.

Instead of sticking with strictly fall colors, I decided to mix some some summer love into this outfit's vibe via a neon top. The grey Old Navy pants acted as the perfect fall neutral, too! Add in a little neon statement necklace and leopard d'orsay flats and wa-la, outfit complete.

{Side note: In my typical fashion, I waited until after work to take these photos, so I may or may not have been blinded by the sun trying to get a few shots in before dusk. What can I say, I'm a little indecisive at times.}

    1. I think that's the best practice! It gets so boring just wearing dull colors throughout the winter.

  5. Love the colour combination here, so unusual to see neon with grey. I'm a big fan of brights so I love this. Your statement necklace makes for the perfect finishing touch.

    1. I am literally the definition of a morning person. Ha! The second my alarm goes off, my feet hit the floor (yep, no snoozing for this girl!) and I'm chipper and ready to go. I have to tone it down for people around me! :)

    1. Thank you! Sometimes fall looks can be so dark, so it was fun to show off how you can include brighter pieces in your fall looks.
