Well this post has been a labour of love (she says through gritted teeth). My laptop is grinding to a halt under the constant usage so that now even simple things take ages. And as for Photoshop…forget it! It now takes so long to make basic changes to a photo such as cropping and adjusting lighting that I can go and do something else while I wait. Time for some serious maintenance work I think. On top of that the dishwasher has broken. But at least I can occupy myself by washing up while I’m waiting for the laptop to do its thing 😉
When I chose the neon theme for the latest Match Made in Seven post I bought the same jumper in yellow and pink. I couldn’t make up my mind which colour I preferred, and as they were on sale I decided to keep both. When we took these photos the light was really tricky to shoot in because it kept changing, but I think you can see the true colour of this pink jumper. A bright rollneck sweater is a great option for early Spring because it gives you a colour hit while keeping you warm.
Of all the neon hues, pink is probably the easiest to wear. I think this shade could easily pass as hot pink, but New Look have decided it’s neon, and I’m not going to argue! I’ve teamed it with a black and white The Kooples jacket that I bought on eBay a few months ago. I think it cost around £20, but would have been far more than that new. If you’ve been wondering how to wear neon for a smart casual look that’s office-appropriate, you can’t go far wrong with a good quality jacket over a rollneck jumper.
You could easily swap the black jeans for tailored trousers, and the glitter boots for black court shoes. I see nothing wrong with a smattering of glitter for daytime, whether it’s for work or play, but I appreciate that sparkly boots might not be suitable for all occupations! Ditto the coated skinny jeans. But making those substitutions is easy, and good to bare in mind for a quick day to night switch. The pink tote bag adds another fun element, but a black one would work just as well. You know me…I can’t resist adding those little touches of “extra” to an outfit 🙂
