Whoa Neon!

You are probably not surprised to hear that I love neon. It's just so bright, cheery, and fun. I don't care if it was once popular during the era that also included shoulder pads, leg warmers, and really frizzy hair.

{Dress: Dress Up Shop (giveaway win from Shanna), Shoes: c/o PB&J Boutique, Necklace: Target (old), Belt: Target}

Hey, if we can bring back frizzy hair as cool again, it would really save me a lot of time in the mornings. I feel like I should just embrace it all, because someday I'm going to have to tell my kids that I was born in the 80's... that's last century! Shudder. They're going to think I'm so ancient. That's when I whip out this little blog of mine and say, "See! I was cool once!". Will it work? Probably not.

Another perk of wearing neon: it makes me look really tan. Who needs self tanner when you can just wear neon. Try it!

Ricademus said...

PS - I should explain that my dad wasn't sick, he was just bald and not in the cool way. My oldest brother tried shaving his head when he started losing his hair and, well, it wasn't a good look. Apparently big, odd-shaped, alien-looking heads run in the family. I've already decided to go bald with dignity. SO at least I'll have my dignity! :)

This colour looks beautiful on you and the dress is lovely!

Ha ha! I certainly empathize about the hair struggles, but I never see even a trace of frizz or puffies on your head.
