Neon and Neutrals

Jeans: Gap, Shoes: Gap, Colorblock top: Gap, Clutch: Cole Haan (gifted), Bangle: H&M, Sunnies: Joe Fresh

I know, this is a LOT of Gap to be wearing all at once. I usually mix it up but the colour accents seemed to work well together and I was running late.

Let’s discuss these shoes: j’adore! Not only are they uber comfy, they’re on trend with this season’s neon craze without being too over-the-top. My closet is full of neutral pieces and I love to add a hit of colour, I just prefer to do so in smaller details (though the back of this shirt is a big pretty big punch of pink!) or in unexpected places.

Skirt: Greylin from Marshalls, Sandals: Aldo, Linen Tee: Zara, Jean Jacket: Gap circa 2000, Leather Bag: Las Pepas in Argentina, Cuff: bought in a silver market in India

When it comes to wearing maxi skirts there’s a fine line between chic and hippie. The key is to keep it simple.

I paired my maxi skirt (a sweet find from my trip to Palm Springs) with a basic t-shirt, my standby jean jacket (it’s 10-years old!) and simple sandals. Since the print is so strong a simple silver cuff keeps the bohemian vibe without wandering into carnival fortune-teller territory.

My prediction? This maxi skirt is going to be a summer fave.
