One Two Three: Neon Edition

This week's One Two Three feels a little bit like a cop out - since I've been seeing neon everywhere (and even tweeted about it), it didn't take much work to come up with a theme for this week's post. However, easy though it may have been, my intentions are true... I love me some neon!  

Something classic -- neonshoesAP

These Kate Spade pumps are the epitome of neon style this season - classic, classy, and yet completely outrageous. I love the idea of pairing stylish neon touches with muted colors and crisp fabrics, retaining some traditionalism while also bringing da funk. Alright that was probably a misuse of that cultural reference, but just go with it.


Something wild -- Screen shot 2013-08-13 at 8.47.22 PM When I saw this necklace on Lauren Elizabeth's blog, I knew it was going to be a problem for me. I have put it in my "cart," taken it out of my "cart," and deleted emails from BaubleBar enticing me "not to forget about your items!" at least three times since I first saw this necklace...a week ago. It's only $34, it is neon and gold, and it is a troublemaker. Let's see how long I can hold out, shall we?


Something handy -- 2-pens

This weekend I had the pleasure of meeting a new friend in person, but not before tweeting with her on Friday about the neon Sharpie tutorial she promised to upload at Brit+co this week. She did not disappoint, and now I want to make these neon Sharpies miiiiiine so I can neon-ify my belongings. You should know, by now, my obsession with all things stationery-supply, and therefore it should be no surprise that these pens appeal to me doubly so.


What do you think of the neon trend this year, thumbs up or thumbs down? Have you made any fun neon purchases yet?
