Obsessed with Neon: DailyBuzz Style 9×9

You guys, I have a thing for NEON.

Neon lightsNeon & woodNeon modern crayonsNeon glitterNeon band aidsNeon public art installations in NYCNeon candyNeon outfitsNeon elevator at the High LineNeon baby dressesNeon glow sidewalk chalk.  And possibly my favorite… Neon blocks.

You see what I mean?  Can’t get enough of it.

And, I also love neon incorporated into my own wardrobe…

So when DailyBuzz Style asked if I would do a post about neon & neutrals, I was thrilled.

It turns out that photographer Chris Lindsay wanted to do another project with me.  And so we set out to document a few neon things I’m currently wearing….and some neon lights in the ‘hood.

OUTFIT 1:

Neon pink jeans by Voxx ($58) – available by mail order at Goldy Mac in Brooklyn, 718-230-5603; Jacket from a Brooklyn Relief Society Clothing Swap; white shirt from Uniqlo; nude shoes from Target; gold bangles & necklace from J.Crew; crown braid by Kristen Jex in NYC
[Kristen is available for freelance in Manhattan/Queens/Brooklyn – $50 cuts/$85 color/$20 blow-outs.  She works in your home.  Appointment and consultation by email: kristen@kristenjex.com]
 OUTFIT 2:

Citron yellow dress from Old Navy; belt from H&M; Jacket from Harvey Faircloth; hat from a street vendor in Manhattan (Danny bought it for me last summer before a trip to the beach!); Talco Oxford shoes by SAX, available at Eric Footwear in Park Slope, 718-369-4189.  They send shoes by mail!  (FYI, these shoes are SO well made…The owner said they’re made in a small factory near Tuscany and every pair is handcrafted.  The leather is oiled and really soft.  I teeter between 8 & 8 1/2, but for these the 8s were perfect.)

OUTFIT 3:

Neon striped shirt from Old Navy; pants by Harvey Faircloth; necklace by J.Crew (also, check E-bay for these); bag by Kate Spade.
Do you guys like wearing any bits of neon?  Somehow it makes me feel summery in two seconds.  And just a warning, it might make you crave an icecream cone or make you want to go to the beach.  🙂

    Love these outfits! You definitely pull off neons without looking like Freemont Street in Vegas (which is how I always feel). Love it!

    Oh my gosh so fabulous!!! I am soooo loving the neon lately… well and I was last year too so I'm glad it's still in. These are some awesome shots!! 🙂 Also, such a good idea to mix with neutrals to tone it down a bit! Love it all! 🙂

    I love it! Where is the top from in the first photo – neon pink stripes? Did I miss where that one is from? So cute!

    I love that I trash talked both skinny jeans and pink in the same sentence, and that you just smiled, let me wait until I saw this, and actually find myself thinking it looks good. I constantly learn from you… 🙂

      Christy -you are hilarious. I love it! When we had that conversation I had actually forgotten that I was wearing those pink pants. Too funny 🙂

    I found the perfect pair of neon orange skinnies the other day. Well, perfect until I tried them on and saw that they were made funny around the waist. I'm definitely in the market for those pink pants, hopefully, I'll find some soon!
