I used to believe that the only way to pull off neon was to be very tan but I've widened up in my old age and have since learned that neon is for everybody. Let me tell you, if you're ever feeling sad, just put on some neon and you'll quickly learn that it's impossible to not immediately feel like a million bucks.
This dress was a very random find from J Crew Factory and the happy bonus of it being on sale is what tipped me into the "must order" category. It definitely runs big and I had to order a size down, but once it was on, I was ready to get out and live it up. Luckily, this was worn to a bachelorette party so the party quality of this dress got a great workout.
Bonus? This dress has a very fun back. When I walked around, it felt like a cape. Hilton Head Island isn't very out-there fashion-wise, so I'm going to take any chance to wear a cape that I can get. Topping off the look is also some of my favorite pink Kendra Scott jewelry pieces, mostly because the combo of neon kiwi and hot pink makes me swoon with happiness.
Because there was so much color in the actual dress itself and jewelry, I decided it was probably a good idea to go more neutral in the bag and shoes. Let me just say, this leather Lilly Pulitzer bag might be my favorite bag I've ever bought. I've carried it as an everyday bag for about a year now and it still looks as good as the day I bought it. My fingers are crossed that they release another leather bag in their upcoming Resort collection.
These shoes ended up being fabulously uncomfortable but I ended up so loving the look of them that I didn't mind that much. They're very on trend right now and I can see why. The "naked shoe" aspect makes legs look long and the blush color means they match just about everything. Definitely fun to have in your closet, as long as you don't plan on doing too much walking.
And bonus fun for the day- how great is that sign next to me? Alligators are definitely one of the more interesting parts of living on Hilton Head Island.
