Neon, brights and leopard heels

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 😉

    I don't think I'll ever get tired of seeing color-blocking! This is such a great look – I bet everyone who saw you wearing it was jealous that you had the guts to wear something wild and fun like this 🙂

    Well, hello, lovely Lady! I've seen you floating around at various link-ups and decided to check out your blog. I LOVE your eclectic with dash of quirky style! This outfit is so colorful and bright; kicks the wintery drab to the curb.

    I agree with Ms P – you are my bold-color idol as well! Love the tights with this look, and of course the heels, they are super-fabulous.

    This is so perfect. I love green and blue together but you made it even better with the neon and leopard. It's genius.

    Nice color combinations and LOVE those shoes!!! The necklace is such an interesting piece too, and I'll bet those colors make it quite versatile.

      Thank you so much, Pseu: Sandy (who makes the necklaces) will make them pretty much to your spec – you should check out her website, her pieces are beautiful! C x

    Wow, you are bold and brave! And totally pull it off. I love the blue and green together, and what fun to add the bright yellow bag – inspiration for me to go even farther with my brights next time!

      Hi Anne, and thank you! Yes you should go all out with the brights, it can only make everyone smile! Catherine x
