i am wearing: tan shirt from target, khaki theory skirt, curly in the city clutch, belt from target, shoes are seriously about 15 years old, h&m bangle bracelets and michael kors watch.

this is attempt two for the bloggers do it better neon and neutrals assignment. so i need you guys to tell me which one to submit tomorrow…this one or yesterdays outfit? i can’t decide which one i like better. i think yesterdays for some reason. it’s just so summery!Β or i could even use my original neon and neutral outfit! anyways…i know i have told you many times how much i love twitter. i have found that it is MUCH easier to tweet a company than to call their 800#’s and sit on hold forEVER and then have to go through all of the prompts. today i sent a DM to the dish network and asked them to call me. i got a call within 15 minutes and had them walk me through exchanging our receiver. it is amazing how different the level of service is when they call back vs. calling their call center. i have always been a fan of the saying “if you have a good experience you will tell a few friends, if you have a bad one, you will tell EVERYONE”. so even though we have had issues with our service, i thought i would give a shout out for good service for once!

p.s. don’t forget to check out pretty shiny sparkly to see how all of the other bloggers styled their neon and neutrals!

    Twitter really is quite magical in getting responses. Because they know their name can be all over the place if too many people Tweet problems and they want to fix them quickly!

    I personally LOVE this outfit. So much. It’s the pops of pink and the fact that I’m pining for some fantastic pink pumps! You look awesome.

    I LOVE this. Definitely my favorite. I don’t know what it is about it. But the pink is just so fun! and then its tied all together with the print on your clutch.

    I just ordered supplies to make my own clutch. I’m pretty excited. Inspired by all of this neon and neutral in the air! πŸ™‚ ….and I’ve been watching “Project Runway” re-runs so now I’m convinced I can sew!

    Hopefully I don’t mess it up!

    I think I’m gonna go with yesterday’s outfit! Both are lovely – I love your clutch in this one. But yesterday’s got my vote.

    P.S. Figure out your twitter dilemma? If you change the settings in Tweetdeck works. Also, try changing your settings on Twitter.com literally. They may have updated it without any of us knowing πŸ™‚

    I think you should definitely go with today’s outfit! I can’t believe those shoes are 15 years old!! You take amazing care of your items and I would have guessed that the clutch was Missoni! Just discovered your blog and I’m following! http://www.bravoerunway.com

    I would prob go with todays outfits because I think the pink is more true to being a neon, and the pretty peach wasn’t quite bright enough to be considered a neon, though the outfit was adorable and I think I may like the crisp white and peach color combo more I think todays hot pink pumps and the perfect touch of the belt will fit the bill the best! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the inspiration on this! I wanted to participate, too, but couldn’t think of a subtle way to introduce the color. The belt is my favorite part πŸ™‚

    Wonderful as always. I love the last shot wear you are walking away and you can just see the bag and shoe. Great way to show the accessories instead in a static way like I did.

    I love both outfits! I don’t know if it’s the lens or not, but the peach skirt doesn’t quite pop like the pink does for the neon challenge, but still super cute! And both handbags are A-mazing! I need to start shopping Etsy…

    I love that you went with a “pop” of neon vs. going all out with the neon. Very nice blog. *adds to google reader*
