Neon Yellow

13240032_863233000473173_3979429039166249576_nHave I told you how much I love yellow recently? Well let me tell you again! Two years ago I would have grimaced at the thought of adding this colour to my wardrobe, after years of listening to the old wives tales about what colours you can or can’t wear I just assumed no one could wear yellow. Since throwing out the nonsense tales of what I can and cannot wear I decided I would wear whatever I wanted, including this colour. Why the sudden love of neon? Who knows.

Maybe this colour has come back in a way I had never seen before, maybe it’s the right shade that does it for me. I picked up this dress a couple years ago with the plan of wearing it on holiday in Cuba. Unfortunately it did not make it out of the suitcase due to it being a thicker fabric – not suitable for such warm temperatures! But for spring with a little blazer, it’s just the right amount of warmth.

It’s also nice to be able to wear some of my brighter statement jewellery that I snatched up on eBay. The earrings have been redesigned so they are less bulky than the original set.

 

Christmas Eve on the Beach

In light of the past year with working two jobs and the amount of responsibility I have obtained I was not sure when I would have an opportunity to go on holiday. People had been saying “just go” but its not as easy as that because around the holiday season the rates of all the resorts skyrocket! I was looking at the Valentin Perla Blanca in Santa Maria, Cuba which is an adult resort (something I had never tried) and was upwards of $900 for 4 nights. The second downfall of travel (at any time) is that for one person the price is at least $200 more than if its for two people, which I feel is so unfair.

However this particular resort I had been watching on SellOffVacations.com and the price dropped three times the Friday before I planned to leave so I thought “Yes! This is it!” I left on December 21st the Monday before Christmas and returned Christmas Day around 3pm. What an amazing holiday, my first completely alone and I loved every minute of it. Because I could go on forever I’m just going to let you know about the outfits!

xmascuba1Now I know I preach that I never buy new, but this tank top was part of my charitable donation this year to TenTree. I purchased their mystery bag which includes 5 random articles of clothing in a size of your choice. I ordered mediums just to be safe! This tank was my favourite and I thought it would be a great style for just walking down to the beach.

The second outfit is one of two dresses that I only wear on holiday it seems! They are on the short side so that may have something to do with it – but they are just the easiest pull on dress that hang away from the body in the heat. And wouldn’t you know it, from Streetwear Society (a cheap mall brand) that I paid about $5 for!

Neon Pink

hotpinkblackscarf I think I say this every day, but this colour is my new favourite! In fact, anything neon, much like my latest purse thrift! Although my skin tone is not exactly natural (thank you bronzer!) anything fluorescent or neon really pops against it. I received a ton of compliments on this outfit because of its bold colour.

To all the women that feel you need to go dark in the winter, I give you this outfit! I expect all year long I will be promoting thrilling colour and bold statement pieces. Why go dark when you can go bright?!

Last week I picked up this neon knit top by Gap at the Store, which I had just brought with me in case I was cold – but it ended up being a great addition to this outfit! Underneath it all is a half price white blouse by Banana Republic (from Value Village’s half price sale this month) and a simple black pencil skirt. This super fun scarf was also in my bag of goodies from the half price sale, only $2!

 

Fabulous New Bag

neonpurse I tried out a new trend yesterday and I would like to proudly say I rocked it! Although the outfit itself is a combination I’ve never tried before, the new neon bag I snatched up at Value Village really seals the deal on this one! I’ve officially decided this is my favourite colour of the month!

It really makes this whole monochromatic look pop. I saw on Instagram recently women sporting shorts with their blazers – so I thought it was worth a try. The main reason for wearing it was quite simply, the AC in the store is way too cold for me! I’ve said it a hundred times but blazers are awesome, especially this simply tailored RW&Co 3/4 sleeve one. I also have it in a dark sage green!

blackwhitebracelets I also wanted to comment on my jewellery for this outfit. It worked so perfectly with the outfit, a fun blend of sparkle and attitude! As part of my adventure in eBay shopping, these two pieces were among my favourites from the latest shipment.
