Bloggers Do It Better- Neon + Neutral


The fourth installment for Bloggers Do It Better is Neon + Neutral.  The look is to have a simple neutral palette with a pop of neon color. That is not a problem for me because I’m all about the color.  Brighter and bolder is always better!


My first goal was to resist buying anything new since I’m shopping my closet.  So I had to get crackin and see what I could find.  Lucky me, I came across this neon orange Christian Dior blazer that I found a couple of weeks ago at the Goodwill for $9.99!  Can you believe that?  That was a good thrifting day…I absolutely love the color and the gold CD buttons.


I imagined this blazer was once worn by a “well to do woman” that spent her Saturday with the Ladies Who Lunch drinking hot tea and conversing about their vacation homes.  My Saturdays are far from the Ladies Who Lunch, so I decided to add my funky flair to this blazer by pairing my splatter paint Gap Khaki pants and bold accessories.

Be sure to check out all the other bloggers in their Neon + Neutral looks!
