What I wore today: 02/07/2012 (Neon and neutral)

Neon and neutral outfit: Anthropologie dress, heather gray blazer, neon yellow bag and belt

I'm still experimenting with neon and learning how to wear it. But, right now, my favorite way is to add a pop of neon yellow to a neutral outfit. I especially like the way it looks with dark gray.

I wore the neon and neutral trend on my nails last summer, I've swooned over these neon and neutral shoes and over What Would Ashley Wear's DIY version of some similar ones, and I've gathered inspiration from the always fabulous Jessica Quirk who sported a couple pops of neon in this otherwise neutral ensemble last June.

But now... I've finally composed my own neon and neutral look. I'm about a season behind trend, but I don't care because I felt so fabulous sporting this quirky look today.

Notable details other than the neon pops: The dress is actually lavender, but I like that it looks almost gray here. The cross double ring is my personal nod to how much Madonna rocked it at the Super Bowl on Sunday. ;)

I was going to photograph this look against a plain, gray wall; then, I saw this graffiti and knew nothing could be more perfect! Sometimes you just luck into a perfect setup.
