Neon Stripes

 Blouse- Ann Taylor (similar, love this), Shorts- Zara (on sale!), Sandals- Zara, Jewelry- Forever 21

You may notice something a little different here...yes, I dyed my hair! I wish I could have gotten some pics in actual sunlight so you could get a better view of it, but it was pouring down rain all day yesterday (which also accounts for my wilted curls). I had to settle for some really quick pictures in my friend's parking garage, which is better than nothing, right?? Anyway, in real life, its a dark red shade, and hopefully if the forecast of rain all week isn't true, maybe you'll get to see the real color soon!

I really love the two patterns in this outfit. At first it seemed a little out there, but because the shirt and shorts both have the same shade of gray throughout, it totally works. I am starting to really like tying up my button up tops now! I think its a really cute way to wear button ups for summer.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Linking up with KaylaLauren, Laura and Amber!

  9. I'm not the biggest fan of neon, usually, but I like that top--it's a subtle enough version of neon that it doesn't draw way too much attention! And your hair looks great!
