This week on Copy Cat Closet, we were challenged to add a bright pop of neon to our outfits. It's so easy to get sucked into a wardrobe of blah colors, especially in the winter. I had to get creative with this once! I love bright colors, but tend to stick to more jewel tones. Not a lot of items in my closet would be considered 'neon', and there's no way my schedule or budget would allow for any shopping this week.
I had this tank top from Old Navy that I usually only wear as a swimsuit cover-up or summer sleeping tank. I paired it with my secret weapon, these grey skinnies I got from Walmart for $2.57 and always get tons of compliments on. They go with anything, and have help up surprisingly well for such an inexpensive clothing item! The sweater was an old find that I had thrifted, re-sewn new buttons on, and actually given to my sister. But I promptly borrowed it back for this outfit.
Sweater - Thrifted (and new buttons added)
Tank - Old Navy
Skinnies - Walmart
Booties - DSW
Nail Polish - Sally Hansen and Miliani (tutorial here)
My nails needed a new coat of polish, so I tried out this simple manicure to add a pop of color. It's a little tamer than a solid neon nail, without too much more effort. I made a tutorial for the look right here. The base coat was a nude/pink, so I stuck with the rule of keeping the neon colors paired with a neutral.
Had anyone ever completely lost a piece of clothing? I'll leave behind the occasional sweater, scarf or something, but while creating this post I realized that I can't find that pink dress ANYWHERE. It's been a while since I've worn it, and I can't for the life of me figure out where it went. Hopefully it turns up before spring rolls around for real, it's really cute!
