When Natalia from Ma Nouvelle Mode contacted me a few weeks ago to host a Copy Cat Closet linkup, I was ecstatic!! If you haven't heard of CCC before, you've got to join in on the fun! So each Thursday a challenge is sent out with something specific to try to copy. Then the following Wednesday you come back to Natalia or Kelley and link up your outfit! (p.s. you don't have to be a blogger to do this! Just link up an instagram photo or a link with a photo of yourself in your look!)
It's so awesome to be challenged each week and it really forces me to shop my closet too! When she said I got to pick the challenge I knew immediately what I wanted to do. Yep you guessed it - Neon! So here are two looks I put together specifically for the challenge:
Neon Pink Tee: Gap (old)
Jeans: Express (old)
Leopard Loafers: Target
Watch: Caravelle by Bulova c/o LuckyFABB
Neon Yellow Blazer: Zara (old - similar)
Dress: Express (old)
Knuckle Clutch: Arbonne "Comet Cosmetic"
Booties: Jessica Simpson (old)
Obviously you guys know I'm obsessed with neon. So this wasn't too difficult for me. I just paired both my neons with neutrals or basics so that they'd be the stand out piece. I love dressing down this blazer (wore it with cutoffs here) but it's a super fun going out option as well. Pairing it with a LBD was perfect. Also, neon pink & leopard are totally considered neutrals in my wardrobe (I should be embarrassed how many of each I have... but I'm not!) I wore that look during a casual shopping trip at the promenade last week. For more neon winter outfits I've recently worn see this & this
So if you want to link up your outfit - please do so below! I seriously can't wait to see what you ladies do! I have some tips for wearing neon too:
- If you’re a bit nervous about venturing into Neon… start small! An accessory like a bag or a belt is always easy and something anyone can try.
- Pick neon colors that you love. I’m obsessed with pink in general so I tend to always be attracted towards oranges, pinks & yellows. If you don’t love the color you won’t love your outfit!
- Stick to a neutral palette for the rest of your look. Nude shoes, white tees, chambray shirts & boyfriend jeans are always a great companion to neon.
- Don’t be scared! I rocked 2 neons together and got SO many compliments. The #1 rule when wearing neon – be confident and smile! People will love your outfit if they know you love it!
