Fluoro meets Floral


(Neon Jacket by Bardot, Floral Pants by Bardot, Top by 1 & 20 Blackbirds, Shoes by Rubi, Clutch by Peeptoe, Watch by Michael Kors and Necklaces by Colette)

Bring on Bright!
------------------------------
Feeling ultra fluorescent in two of this seasons most popular trends - Fluoro and Floral! 

The fluoro trend has been around for a while, and to be honest I had mixed feelings about it. When I first thought of fluoro, I thought of the 80s and every negative connotation that came from that decade relating to fashion. Let's face it, the 80s were a time of MC hammer pants, leg warmers and shoulder pads, all of which screamed cheap, cheap cheap! 

But at least one thing can be said about 80s fashion - it was fun! Big colour and colour mixed in unusual ways was the norm - not too far off from what we are seeing on the run way today. But this time I think we've learnt from past mistakes and these days fluoro can be done so may different ways. For those who are a little colour shy, you can wear it with neutrals, contrast with black or just add fluro accessories to an outfit. And for those who love colour and are not afraid of looking like a rainbow threw up all over you (in a good way) colour blocking hot pink, citron yellow and lime green shades will definitely create a strong and bold look!

    1. Thank you for the lovely comment!

      Yes these shoes are actually very comfortable! which saying a lot because I don't usually wear closed toe heels (has something to do with my unnaturally long toes, haha!) And the price is right as well! $39.95 from Rubi Shoes!
