Wardrobe Diaries: A Pop of Neon

















































I am not much of a neon person and have sucessfully steered clear from the trend all year... that was until I came across this colourblock knit from J.Crew. The bright yellow paired with the muted grey was just too pretty to pass up. Being a knit fabric, it really softened up the neon and eliminated any hints of safety wear that I usually associate with it.

These studded shorts, thanks to Sugarlips were the perfect bottoms to pair with the knit. I actually think these shorts and top were made for each other, don't you? I love how the pop of yellow brings out the subtle brass studs. To finish off the look, I threw on a denim jacket and an oversized tote in a similar tone to vertically tie the outfit together. 


























{ j.crew knit top no longer available similar here and here . j.crew factory jacket similar here also loving the vest version . shorts thanks to sugarlips . cole hann tote . david yurman chevron cat-eye sunglasses . michael shannon pumps . bracelets by j.crew, jgood, ariel gordon, amrita singh, tiffany & co }
