Neon Dallas


So I'm headed to Dallas, TX for the weekend for a conference and just dreaming about the sunshine in the South has kicked my brain into a space that it doesn't usually occupy.  You know I'm a pretty devoted lover of a neutral color palette.  And sure, I flirted with neons in the past but came to the conclusion that they just didn't work with my skin tone.  Well... I did a little shopping to prepare myself for brighter, warmer weather in Dallas and something came over me and told me to buy not just one neon piece of clothing, but two.  And on top of this, I bought a piece of clothing I normally would NEVER wear.  I mean, I like studs on stuff, but usually only on black items in subtle ways.  Guys, I ended up getting a freakin' neon mint faux leather VEST with studs all over it.  Who am I all of a sudden?  I don't know, but it's making me happy.
If you live in Dallas and happen to see a glowing neon person this weekend walking down the street with long brown hair and glasses, it's probably me.  Also, I have no plans for Sunday during the day so who wants to hang out?  See you soon Dallas!

Haha! I always heard that if you live through a trend once, you should never go back. But current neon is just so much cooler than the neon tees and scrunchies of the past. And sometimes, you just need to glow like a traffic cone.

Oh, it's supposed to be sunny all weekend, with highs in the mid-70s. My girlfriend and I are having a spa staycation at the W this weekend and we're so excited about the weather. :)

hahaha Don't you just love it when we surprise yourself? I love when I learn something new that I adore, even if it's outside of my normal rotation of trends.
