Taming down the Neon trend!

Hi friends!

I have been enjoying summer like the world is about to come to an end. Last week I was out the entire weekend except when it was time to go to sleep and sleep only lasted about 4 to 5 hours a night. But I am thankful and glad I was able to spend some much needed time with close friends (when I say close I mean people I will die for) and family.  I also got some much needed time with the boys aka hubby’s troop! I understand sometimes they get a bit much when all they want to do is sit and play video games non stop. Now don’t get me wrong I am actually down with playing video games but when I play with them, they take a bit too easy on me. Come on…just cause I am a girl doesn’t mean we can’t have a fair fight. Anyway all this brought back the gamer in me. I remembered the days when me and my older brother would spend hours playing video games as kids and teenagers. So I decided to invest in my own controller and a game that really interested me- injustice gods among us anyone?

Anyway now the outfit in the pictures. I have been meaning to wearing some neon for quite some time now. It is actually the trend of the year.I have to say, this outfit surprised me- I knew it looked good but I didn’t know it actually would picture this well. I wanted to tame the neon a bit because when we think wearing neon we think over the top, casual or beachy. But I thought pairing it with sheer lace peplum top and metallic belt gave it a very sophisticated and evening look. You can actually wear this look to family get togethers, dinner parties or even just a romantic dinner. Gosh you could even do night out with friends or what not.  I have even considered wearing it to work! Well my job we do very formal outfits on special events days otherwise we can be business casual- where we will sometimes sporadically find coworkers leaning too close to casual on days they aren’t dealing with public but we never wear Jeans! -never!!!!

Hope everyone is doing well and let me know if you are planning to jump on the neon trend this summer?

Pretty in Peach and Black – Pink has been pushed aside!

Yes yes I understand my outfit posts have been MIA for a little while but trust me you will see tons more of them. I have some terrible Good news that I received from my new podiatrist. He says he can fix my feet forever! I can wear whatever shoes I want again only catch is….I have to live in sports shoes/sneakers for a while! I have to wear them all the time and everywhere. When I get up middle of the night to get water or something! I mean that I have been doing anyway but with my clogs. This whole new sneaker thing will require some more adjusting. When I first found my clogs alleviated my pain I wore them everywhere only I was stuck to jeans and pants! I didnt wear any skirts, shorts and dresses for an entire 6 to 7 months. It got quite depressing so I said you know what? I dont care I will wear what I want and own it! I will wear a red hot dress with my black clogs and walk down the road like I am the prettiest girl alive. Honestly it seems to work if you start believing it haha. Overtime I decided I will start a collection of Dansko brand shoes. I bought a pair of boots for winter which costed an arm and a leg. Then a pair of summer sandals But now sneakers? I thought I was progressing but I have come to a screeching halt? But if the outcome is the possibility of wearing heels and all kinds of shoes again I am so down…I will keep you guys posted on how the whole thing progresses that is after I go out and make, yes MAKE myself buy a pair of podiatrist approved sneakers! It will be fun wearing office clothes with those…i am not sure if my power of positive thinking will make my pencil skirt look hot with sneakers but eh how bad could it be?
