Neon Yellow

Hello and happy hump day!  I'm off to Minneapolis today on another work trip - this one puts me over 40,000 miles flown this year with both work and fun trips combined.  Wow!  That's a lot of time with my booty in an airplane seat.  ;)  I don't mind, though, because I love to see different parts of the country and world.

Today I want to share with you an outfit that I never would have worn a few years ago.  I love yellow, but have always hesitated to stray into the neon shade because of my pale complexion.  Neon has been so popular the last couple of years, but I've never taken the plunge to wear the shade until now.  When I was on my recent work trip to Hong Kong, I found two items that I just could not pass up: a white/neon yellow stripe skirt and a neon yellow clutch.  When paired with white and beige, these pieces provide the perfect pop of color without overpowering the outfit.  The skirt is definitely too short for work, but great for a casual outing with friends.  The clutch has quickly become my favorite new piece because I love the color and all of the different strap options for carrying!
