Neon bright

 Ok, I have to start by apologising for my facial expressions in these pictures, and probably the next few posts! I took these on the weekend when it was ridiculously sunny and bright and thought I was doing ok without sunglasses, but no. This has resulted in me either frowning or looking seriously confused in every photo and trust me when I say these are the best out of a very bad bunch!

Neon shorts, Missguided
Black crop top, Primark
Netted jumper, Primark
Clutch, Zara
Wedges, Primark
Bracelets, Primark
I’m not going to lie, it’s taken me a while to buy into the whole neon trend. I think it’s probably because when I think of neon I picture hen parties and fresher’s student (me included) dressed head to toe in tutus circa 2009 when neon fancy dress seemed to take over the world!

However my perceptions have changed over the summer as I’ve witnessed several people wearing neon the right way and I made my first purchase in the form of these shorts from Missguided. I've kept this outfit simple and paired the shorts with a black crop top and my black and white Primark wedges, which I love but don’t wear enough! I also bought this Topshop jacket with the idea it might make a nice short suit, but the tones didn’t really match and after my boyfriend said I looked like a walking tennis ball, I went off the idea completely! I think the Topshop jacket is going to make its debut at LFW, but I have no idea what I’m wearing with it yet!! Maybe some black shorts and a crop top? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  1. I'm still thinking about my LFW outfits too, so stressful! I love that black jumper by the way, looks amazing with that outfit.
    That jacket from Topshop would look really amazing with some shorts and some wedges or something chunky on your feet :)
