Sparkling neon.


Neon yellow Urban Outfitters sweater, Silver c/o JewelMint Paradise Cove necklace, Brown c/o Lulus scallop sequin shorts, Ivory vintage Chanel, Bracelets: rhinestone friendship via miravera, gold ASOS spike (similar one here), orange silk sparkling double wrap via TINNLILY, ivory Forever 21 pyramid stud (similar rhinestone one here); Tan Aldo boots.



I always love mixing neon brights with neutrals -- I feel it gives the bright neon colors more attention rather than deter away from its great vibrant presence.  I played off of the colors from the Paradise Cove necklace from JewelMint (which btw, reminds me of candy necklaces I used to get/eat ;P as a little girl), it's uniquely sweet!  In addition, I wanted to share some new items I got to join my arm party!  The rhinestone friendship bracelet from miravera is so pretty and dainty filled with fun colors.  The sparkling silk double wrap bracelet from TINNLILY is so gorgeous, sparkling is the perfect word to describe it.  
These Lulus shorts are so lovely, I was drawn to the delicate bead detail and scallop-hem.  I think I'll wear these shorts definitely more when it's warm outside -- they're such a great subtle yet charming statement piece for any outfit.

Work and school have been a big part of my life, sometimes I find I can't get time to breathe, but anyways, I'm so glad though I get a much-needed break soon with Spring Break coming!  What are you lovelies going to do, if you're in school - for your Spring Break or just in general any soon-to-be vacation ;)?  I so desperately want to visit Disneyland haha.  I haven't been in ages, last time was when I was 5.  Anyways if not, I'll try to make it a point to visit this Summer :).  I'll probably act like this when I go ;).
Happy Tuesday loves! Have a wonderful week ahead!
♥, Kathleen.

Oh, I love how you mixed up fluorescents with neutrals! And all that arm candy...:) We'll be in L.A. this summer (and possible Disneyland for my birthday) so maybe we'll get to hang out again?

Have a lovely rest of the week, Kathleen!
