Neon Americana

Considering my usual personal style, I wouldn't typically think that I myself would title a post 'Neon Americana.' I have to admit that I shuddered a little when neon came into fashion a few seasons back, offending my usual colour palate of Black, purple, and maybe a bit of red if I'm feeling extra 'chirpy.' But funnily enough, I've rather warmed to colour recently, demonstrated in no small terms by my post below. For today I decided to go all out on colourful, pairing head to toe Primark (or in this case, neck to toe) with my beanie. I really like how it goes with my hair too, and I feel the look is sort of 50's, which certainly takes me back to endless reruns of my Grease VHS as a child. I definitely wanted to be Rizzo but probably ended up a bit of a Sandra Dee, ah well.

Hat - Asos
Top, Skirt, Shoes - Primark
Bag - Cambridge Satchel

Primark are pretty amazing for finding very seasonal stuff, namely this skirt, one I'd been searching for for ages in pursuit of a car print garment (hello again, Spring/Summer 2012). It's perfect for a crop top as it's super high waisted!

Basketball, my favourite sport (I've never played it, a wonderful example of how on trend varsity clothes are being adopted by gloriously unfit girls across the country.)

  11. Just stumbled across your blog and I love it! :) I love your layout and all your pictures are so funny and colourful! :) Love this outfit, it's definitely something I would wear.

  13. that's a lovely outfit! you definitely should wear more colour, at least you'd suit it:-) x

  14. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I definitely see a bit of Rizzo there. :)
    Also, you made me laugh with the retro varsity things being adopted by unfit girls across the country. I would most definitely fit into that category! Ha. Although I did play basketball in elementary school, I'm very uncompetitive by nature and just didn't really see the point of it all. So needless to say, my career in competitive sports was over before it began. :)

  15. This skirt is MAGICAL! And you know I am NOT a neon fan either...but when it looks this good who cares ;) You rock it.


  16. Really adorbs! Love the skirt paired with the messenger bag. We only live once: I love that you are dressing like you are LIVING!

  17. Not only are you beautiful but you are also very inspiring, i'm so glad to follow you too, i hope we can be friends :)

  20. Absolutely love your outfit! Your skirt's so pretty! Also, loving the varsity trend of unfit girls comment - I definitely would fall in place in the 'unfit girls' category. Probably should do some sport sometime soon in my life...
