Flashback: Neon

Me and neon go waaaay back. I'm going to guess that around 1990, there was a year of my life when I was wearing neon every day. If you took a peek into my closet, you'd have found:

  • Black bicycle shorts with neon side stripes
  • Neon socks (I'd wear a different color on each foot)
  • A Sun Ice ski jacket (I don't ski). It was full-on neon. Pink, orange, and yellow.
  • Neon scrunchies and banana clips 
  • Those skinny rubber bracelets
  • Too many NKOTB t-shirts (one even had neon lettering)

I was over saturated with neon.

The result.... I'm not really embracing its comeback due to past overexposure - until I found this bag.



Isn't it a perfect pop of neon without being too much? I love that it's yellow! Since I don't like how yellow looks on me for clothes, I can now wear it in an accessory.

Loving that bag girly! I've been super hesitant to get in to the neon trend, but I think I could handle this!

That bag is the perfect way to incorporate neon without feeling like a highlighter leaked all over you. And I totally wore a different neon sock on each foot, too. I really loved pairing pink and yellow for some reason...

I'll admit it: I love neon. But I agree that it's best in small doses. This bag is a great mix of neon and neutral-- my fave!

Neon socks and NKOTB shirts! Definitely a flashback! But Neon is everywhere this season...the bag is a nice touch of it.

Oh my gosh...that bag is amazing. And what a steal! I love how it pops against your neutral outfit.
