Trend of the Month – Neon

I’m so excited to participate in Marion’s first Trend of the Month Challenge!  This month’s challenge is Neon…yay!  Since I work in a corporate envronment but still want to wear the latest trends, I always try to figure out a way to wear them to the office and still remain professional.  Some trends never make it, such as cutouts, colored denim or sheer, however I think I can pull neon off.  As I mentioned in Monday’s post,  I worked on these shoes over the weekend  (I forgot I had a bit of Martha Stewart in me) Since they are already pretty loud, I decided to pair them with a black dress to tone the look down.   I would probably skip the necklace during the day, but add it later on for after work cocktails.

What do you think?  Would you wear neon to the office?

  7. Those shoes are amazing!!! I absolutely love the neon cap-toe 🙂

  8. Wow, those shoes and necklace are DIY? I am SO impressed! I think you did a great job incorporating a fun trend while still remaining professional.

    I have the same challenge – corporate job, small-town environment, which means if I wear a leopard fedora to work, I get stared at. Whatever – I wore it anyway! It just means we corporate girls have to be more creative with fashion, right? 🙂

      Totally agree! I sometimes get funny looks when I come in with bright green pants or a royal blue shift dress…done them both 🙂

  9. Omg! Those shoes are DIY?!! How amazing are you? I’m going back to check out that post, what a creative idea!! And now just looking back over this post, I see that the necklace is DIY as well? Too fabulous, I love it 😉

      Hey there, thanks! Yeah, it was easy. Take any necklace (put on a primer if necessary) and spray paint away. Do light layers and let it dry in between so it doesn’t cake up. A voila, neon necklace. At first it will smell a little weird but after a couple of wears it will be fine. Oh, and it won’t get on your clothes as long as you let it dry well. 🙂
