A Need of Neons…

After going blonde, I tried to minimize my intake of bright colors.  I started to notice I can look a little barbie doll-esque, what with the neon pink dresses and bright sandals.  A look I wouldn’t hesitate to wear with my former brunette locks.

So I decided baby steps might be the right approach.

It started earlier in the year with a pair of bubblegum pink suede wedges.  I live in Texas (us ladies love us some bright colors) so not pairing those with another intensely hued dress has been hard.  Very hard.

But last week I went shopping to relieve a bad mood (probably not the best behavior, but honestly who cares, it was needed) and almost bought a pair of neon pink Charlotte Olympia terry wedges.  Justifying two pair of neon pink wedges is hard.  Again, very hard.

I seriously need someone to monitor my extra-curricular activities.

Anyways, I’m now thinking in the direction of neon purses.  I’ll have to work on reining in my desire to wear with all my other colorful pieces since my end-goal is not to blind people.

And as The Boyfriend informed me when I bought my last little neon pink cross body (forgot about that little gem sitting in my closet never worn…), ‘a little neon goes a long way.’

Well, he’s an attorney not a stylist so he can keep his opinions to himself.
