Neon, brights and leopard heels



Blouse: Topshop, Skirt: ASOS similar, Bag: Gift (The Leather Satchel Co), Tights: MyTights.com similar, Heels: Kurt Geiger, Necklace: Sandy Mitchell Jewellery, Bracelet: Topshop, Watch: Red Herring, Rose ring: New Look, Green oval ring: Unknown, Earrings: Shh by Sadie (visit her etsy shop here), Nails: Models Own Concrete Mixer, Lips: Revlon Coral









My second day of rising to the Winter Edition Challenges - and when the challenge is brights I'm all over it like a (neon) rash!

Not much to say except that I'm sooo in my comfort zone - though this outfit was actually quite hard, more because I couldn't make a final decision about which combination of items to put together when most of my clothes are day-glo bright anyway. (I was there all day trying out different looks - half the contents of my wardrobe were on the bed in a pile. Sound familiar to most of you...?)

Sometimes the easiest challenges can turn out to be the hardest - though by far the easiest decision was whether to add my (not worn enough) leopard heels ;)
