Neon Jacquard & Mixed Metals

Hi Everyone! Hope everyone is having a great week so far. Extending the bright colors from earlier this week, today I have a neon yellow sheath dress for you. This dress is also from the Banana Republic x Milly Collection, and my favorite piece out of them all. The fit is perfect for someone my size, without any alterations and the jacquard print is subtle but adds a great spin to a sheath dress. I decided to pair this dress with neutral colors to avoid clashing colors and even more stares on the streets. I wore this white and gold necklace and matched it with these white Kate Spade Paloma Pumps. I noticed that I've been reaching for this necklace a lot lately, probably because the white makes it very versatile for the Summer.

One thing I love about the Summer is the excuse to wear bright colors. This color definitely isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I think it's workable when paired with neutrals for the office. I wore a white blazer in the office to tone down the brightness of the dress and to keep my goosebumps at bay from the air conditioning. When I wore this, I felt like a walking highlighter. I even held up a highlighter at work against my dress and the colors matched perfectly. You could already imagine the amount of stares I got walking around the city.

What do you think about bright colored clothing? Are they a hit or miss in your closet?
