Neon pink Zara knit sweater, Black thrifted belt, Gold H&M accessories, Yellow c/o JewelMint friendship bracelets, Tan Steve Madden Grettta heels.

Whenever I see a pink highlighter, I think of my Zara neon pink sweater.  In particular, I don't own any bright colored pieces, so just had to add this to my closet -- trying to fight off this gloomy weather with neon brights.  I love how it's slouchy and laidback, but decided to add shape to it with a belt.  Cute candy colors are what reminded me of the JewelMint friendship bracelets -- rightfully so, they are super sweet to give to your Besties ;).  I'm planning on sending two of them off to my best friends.

Which brings me to an exciting part of this post, JewelMint is having a fun contest called "Thankful4You"
To enter: submit a picture of you and your best friend wearing your own or JewelMint's friendship bracelets in two image files either: one picture with you and your best friend together OR two images of you and your bestie separately in one file (I'll show you an example below of mine) :).  
You can win a free trip to LA to star in a JewelMint photoshoot! Contest runs until 12/31.  Enter HERE.

Also!  Soo very excited to let you know that JewelMint is offering Inspirafashion readers an exclusive promo code!  50% off your first purchase!!  Enter "Fashion50" at checkout, to access use this link:
P.S. Wanted to share that a photoshoot I recently was a head stylist for made it to the front cover of BARE Magazine!  If you're in Berkeley area tonight would loove to see you at the BARE issue 10 launch party!  8-11pm at Beta Lounge on Durant Ave.
Last but not least, am happy to share with you my JewelMint Thankful4You entry:
Pretending her leg was broken to get out of P.E. and going along with it, singing karaoke til our voices hurt, helping her hang ornaments on a blank Christmas tree, unexpectedly creating our hybrid alias name Kathenda and becoming sisters for life..are just a glimpse of what makes me thankful for my best friend.
Brenda has been one of my best friends since middle school.  Even though being apart in distance in college (her at UC Irvine and me at UC Berkeley), we still managed to keep in touch through not social networking or email sites, but out of all things MAIL. Our friendship makes our way and travels through California: letters, tote bags, and now friendship bracelets.  

Even until we're old wrinkly grannies laughing at each other, I know I can count on her for anything.  Kathenda sisters for life.
♥, Kathleen.

And I love the belted look. It's the only way to give big slouchy sweaters any shape.
