You guys, I have a thing for NEON.
Neon lights. Neon & wood. Neon modern crayons. Neon glitter. Neon band aids. Neon public art installations in NYC. Neon candy. Neon outfits. Neon elevator at the High Line. Neon baby dresses. Neon 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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.)
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. 🙂
