Outfit of the Day | Neon, Gold, & Stripes

Sweater: apt. 9 via Kohl's | Tee: old, via TJMaxx {super similar} | Jeans: American Eagle | Flats: Steve Madden 'Vegasss' {these have badass cap toes} | Necklace: Charming Charlie's {similar} | Ring: Charlotte Russe | Earrings: Target

Day two at Gap = lots of folding aka lots of petting pretty things. I ain't mad at it.

Anyway, y'all know I love neon. I love head to toe neon, I love brights on brights... surprise surprise, I loved me some Lisa Frank back in the day. I aspire to be an air traffic control person, waving little neon orange sticks around and letting the power go to my head. But sometimes, I want my neon to look a little more grown up, and when that happens I wear one piece of neon and some gold accessories. Am I qualified to give style advice? ehhhh. But assuming I am for the next ten seconds or so, skip the colorblocking and try out neon and metallics next time you give your highlighter clothes a go-round.

And because Gap knows my soul, here are some neon-ey outfits that came to me during my fitting room adventures/wildest dreams:

this waffle-y tee in gray & this scarf in pink vibration (it's more of a deep orangey-pink in person)
this tank in ivory & this cardi in energetic peach

If you're so inclined... (you are, trust me) don't forget to use code MERRY at checkout for 35% off, and sign up for eBates to get an additional 5% cash back. The code ends tonight!


I used the jeans from yesterday for Take One, Pass It On. And it was honestly a struggle not to wear that sweatshirt again.

  1. Oh man this is not good for my Gap card. Love the outfit though! I've been still working some bits o' neon into my outfits lately.

  2. Hey I worked at Gap back in the days! It was so much fun, but at the same time, a waste of time because I would just recycle my paychecks there, and I didn't end up making any money at all, other than a closet full of new clothes ;)

    Love the stripes under the sweater!

  4. I just spent my whole budget at the Gap Outlet yesterday - oops! So I need to be good for awhile (and maybe go return some things!) I agree with your neon and gold advice. Seems pretty legit.
