Today's Everyday Fashion: Neon Winter
































I love the idea of making neon work for winter, because I love neon (anyone remember neon slap bracelets?) and I never want it to end. I totally dig the idea of using a neon belt as one big pop of color in an otherwise dark outfit like Marc Jacobs did on the runway. I'm pretty sure my belt glows in the dark, which is kind of amazing and I'm adding this to the list of reason why I love belts. That little piece of patent leather totally changes the look of the outfit! Tell me - will you be wearing neon this winter?

    I'm with you on neons - I wear it all year round, and during winter, I try to wear a pop of it here and there. I love how you incorporated the neon belt - very chic!

  13. 'You know how it *is*, J, i.e., on a crisp Fall night in Kansas----(and my younger brother and his sweet family live in KS!)----when there's a beautiful, full BLUE Moon out on the prairie;  and the clear night sky is also just full of stars............ with the Milky Way being THE very brightest BAND of *light* across the inky-BLACK heavens?!    Well, your neon belt is the Milky Way!!    What a sleek, striking outfit you styled!!

  17. I love this look, J!  So much cuter (and more practical) than the Marc Jacobs look :)  I love the pop of neon in your belt, this is something I would try but don't actually have any neon in my closet!  I also really love that you are combining blue and black in this outfit!!!  so chic!
