Neon, Paisley, And a Pop of Red!

Happy Humpday Loves! I hope your week has been going well. Today was a relaxed yet productive day for me. I spent the day cleaning, doing homework, and I met my mentor for lunch. She is so sweet, awesome, and accomplished. She is an academic ombud, professor, mental health counselor, and more! Hearing her talk about ALL she does and has done, motivates me to do more and work even harder to make my dreams come true. I was beginning to feel a lack of energy and had become overwhelmed with work and grad school and she totally understood and helped encourage and inspire me. Sometimes you just need that extra push from someone who has been there and done that, ya know? Well here’s what I wore to meet her for a yummy seafood lunch on the patio, by the water…Enjoy the pics! 
I am also linking up for the NEON challenge over the blog Everybody Every Wear!! Head over there to check out all the fabulous looks!

 STYLE TIP: Wearing a print or neutral with a neon is a good way to give the entire look balance.

What I Wore: | Top: F21 | Skirt: H&M | Peep-toe flats & Necklace: Target |  Bag: Vintage |  Jewelry: Watch- Charming Charlie, Bracelet- Gap | Mani & Pedi– Sally Hansen’s Blue Away |

PS. Though I’ve been loving incorporating neons into my wardrobe, this super vibrant yellow has a  way of washing me out, and I almost didn’t post this look! I also added a statement necklace to go with the skirt you’ve seen in a post here to help take away from the highlighter effect happening lol. What do you think of this look? Love to hear from you!! 

PSS. Today, I am linking up with Savannah over at Rolled Up Pretty  so head over and check out all the fabulous ladies’s looks (try saying the last three words 5x fast lol!)  Have a great rest of your day!
