A little pop.


There's a couple of spring/summer trends I love.  While maxi skirts don't let me "breathe" the way I often hope with summer heat, I've been relishing wearing them before 90-degree temps fully hit.  They're just easy.  I featured this one a whole year ago, and I still love it just as much.

Another trend I'm happy is sticking around?  Neon.  I'm very often a neutral kinda gal.  Grays, blacks, whites.  They're my jam.  I don't even brighten them much with a piece of jewelry (maybe shoes if I'm lucky).  For some reason though, I want to buy ALL THE NEON.


[Top :: Gap | Maxi :: Old Navy (similar via Gap) | Sunglasses :: Bonlook]

Again, neutral plus neon is the perfect pop of color for me.  This is an easy go-to outfit for me.  I wore it in Chicago (I swear updates are coming!).  It's the perfect outfit for those high 70-degree days.  


The outfit in action.  But I swear I don't normally wear running sneakers with maxi skirts.  My doctor recommended sneakers post-injury while I was in Chicago.  D told me I looked ridiculous, but we agreed it was worth it.

Love it- the sneakers are at least a cute color. I just bought a running skirt in that pink too. It's so fun!

Love you in that neon! I tend to only do neon in my workout clothes lol. And I'm loving maxi dresses... they feel very refreshing and, silly but, they make me feel girly. :)

Eeek! I adore neon! It just never gets old to me. Hey, do you remember those things that you would pull the tail of your tee shirt through to gather it....like knotting it, but not? Totally 80's style? I think one of those would rock with that outfit! (I have no idea what they were called.)

Girl, you work that skirt like a pro, running sneakers or no running sneakers.

I've loved wearing maxi dresses, but I too realized that there isn't a lot of breathability and it gets hot fast. I agree the tennis shoes were a good idea. How're you feeling?
