The Tiny Heart: Hot Pink + Polka Dots

3.22.2012

Hot Pink + Polka Dots





Blazer-Loehmanns (similar), Dress worn as Top-NYC boutique (similar), Skirt-F21 (similar), Pumps-Andres Machado (HERE)

Today I'm linking up with Marionberry Style for her Trend of the Month Challenge: Neon! 

So far the only neon I own is hot pink. I wore all shades of neon as a child in the 80s, but I just don't think highlighter yellow is as flattering on an adult than it is on a 5 year old! I even saw neon clothes in the mens section, whoa! (My hubby will not be wearing this trend. He laughed at a mens bright yellow shirt and I have agree that it looked pretty ridiculous).

I have to give a special shout out today to Kim from A Very Sweet Blog. I won her Vitabath giveaway (naturally I picked the Beach Blossom scent since I live at the beach!). She made it extra special by sending some more goodies in my package including a sample Crest Whitestrips. Thanks for the swag, Kim!

 Are you rockin a little or a lot of the neon trend?

  1. I've been trying to rock the neon, but I've been finding it hard to incorporate it into my work outfits. I have a neon pink bag and belt, but I haven't branched out into neon clothing yet. I think highlighter yellow in accessories might be fun to try.

    1. Anything goes at my workplace, so I probably could wear head to toe neon and no one would bat an eye :)

  7. I'm totally on the neon train! Although I'm a little hesitant to get too much, as it will most likely be a fleating trend after the summer. Love your outfit and your easy style of writing!

  11. Congrats on winning the giveaway :). In terms of neon colors, I find that pink is much easier to wear than green or yellow. Pink is a great color on you btw! And that polka dot skirt is so adorable!

    1. Thanks! I agree, pink is not too harsh so it's easier to wear...plus I already own a lot of it!

  14. You have such adorable, teeny little legs...I'm quite jealous you can pull off shorter skirts like this :) The polka dots are tons of fun, and I love that you paired them with a bright top. Makes it more exciting even!

    1. Thanks Cambria! This skirt is actually a lot shorter than I remember it being and it's now pretty impossible to wear it without tights underneath, oops.

  17. Love the hot pink! I think a little neon (even yellow)does well when mixed with a lot of neutral. I can't believe it's carrying over into menswear though!

  24. That's funny, I've been pretty wary of the neon thing myself, despite my love of yellow. I recently saw colored jeans for men in a catalog and cracked up. I don't think my guy will be wearing those either!

  26. I think this is awesome! I love the pink top and I had to do a double take because I thought I saw a red heel sole...:) Sharon as you continue to blog you'll try out different styles and trends. So many things a year ago I swore I'd never wear or didn't think would look good on me...I tried it anyway.

  41. I really want to get into neon but I haven't been able to find pieces that mesh with my current style. It's on my shopping list along with florals. My closet needs a bit more versatility, IMO. I love that you paired the hot pink with black; it's always been a great combo.

  45. I haven't been rocking the neon at all. Whether you do it poorly or well, it's super noticeable and attention attracting. I just don't have the guts yet.

    you're such a great dresser. i would never know that you're under 5 feet tall just by looking at your photos because you have great proportions and great long legs. :) great pink color!
