Copy Cat Closet: Winter Neon

 
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:
 



 

 



1st Look:
Neon Pink Tee: Gap (old)
Jeans: Express (old)
Leopard Loafers: Target
Scarf: Zara
Watch: Caravelle by Bulova c/o LuckyFABB
 
2nd Look:
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!

  4. Hey girl! I love your outfits! You definately know how to rock the neon. I like your hair too. I'm kind of debating whether or not I should venture out and try the ombre look. I know it looks really good on long hair, but mine comes just past my shoulders...not sure if I could pull it off but I'm bored with my current look! Do you think it would work for medium length hair? Is it low maintenance (I need low/med maintenance)?
    Thanks for stopping by!

  12. I am really into neon too! I just purchased a bright pink neon cardigan after Christmas and it has quickly become a favorite. Your yellow jacket is fabulous! Don't you just love those leopard loafers from Target too? I have the same pair and wear them to death. Heather
