Stripes of Sunshine

As of late, I've been on a neon kick.  Neon colors aren't for the faint of heart,  but if used sparingly, it can make for a very fun ensemble.  I'm not one to disappear in the crowd, so the brighter the better.  Naturally, I love wearing neon's with darker colors, so the pairing of the sweater over all black was a no-brainer.  The Pirate suggested I ditch the usual neck-bling garb and sport one of his ties.  How lucky am I to have a dude who loves fashion as much as I do!?  Pretty darn lucky, if you ask me. 

Anyone get any Jason Wu x Target pieces?  I want need the cat print scarf, but it's not available online. Bummin'.

{sweater: ON (buy) | chiffon shirt: AA (buy) | jeans: ON (buy) | tie: Alfani | watch: vintage Citizen | bag: Tahari | sunnies: Rayban}

Valentine cups at Starbucks. So adorbs!


Love, S

Gosh you're so lucky the Pirate is so in-tune with fashion and cares about it! I love the bright neon stripes and this styling is SO flattering on you! You;re looking super skinny girl!

P.S. Yes - I braved the masses w/a g for Jason Wu. Got some stuff, but not the kitty scarf I really wanted. Contemplating keeping or returning or selling some of the questionable pieces.

Awwww, love that Eli suggested the tie. It adds such a quirky tomboy feel to the look (and I totally thought you were wearing a cardigan at first glance!). Thank you sooo much for the offer for helping me get Jason Wu x Target pieces - that was so sweet of you! Sad that you didn't get the piece you wanted but fingers crossed that there will be some returns and you will miraculously find in a few weeks later?

Hope you're doing well my dear!

Love the look! Stylish and comfy. And, def liking the tie look. Something different :)

I didn't go to the stores, but I was up at 444am EST, and bought the red/blue stripe dress and the blush polka dot blouse online. We are about 10min away from a Target, but I def didn't brave the masses. hehe.

I SAW THAT SWEATER AT OLD NAVY BUT I DECIDED TO SKIP IT. NOW I REALLY REGRET MY DECISION :( :( :(

The skinny tie really adds a character to this outfit :) Did you get anything from the JW x Target collection? People are selling them on Ebay for such ridiculous prices >:(

I really love this combo. The yellow striped sweater looks amazing. I definitely want to get one for myself. I think the tie was a great alternative to a necklace. Great pairing, dear! Have a great week.
