WIWW: Subtle Neon

June 20, 2012 by Trina 15 Comments

Neon is everywhere lately.  At first I was against it, thinking neon equaled 80′s permed hair and pegged {ie tight-rolled} jeans.  But I discovered there is a way to do neon and not look like Cyndi Lauper’s {grand}daughter.

I spotted this tee on a recent shopping trip {on my birthday! yay!} with my friend Ami.  As soon as I saw it, I knew it belonged in my wardrobe.  It paired perfectly with another fantastic Marshall’s find, the cropped navy jacket.

I wore this to work last Friday.  What do you think?  Is neon a Yay or Nay?

And just for fun…the close up pic I took on Instagram but wearing a different peacock necklace :)
