Wardrobe Pick-me-up...NEON BLING...

It will come as no surprise to hear me say that my favourite extra curricular activity is shopping! It's the one hobby that keeps me amused come rain or shine, which is why I ventured to the shops twice this weekend (desperate times!).  However both trips left me seriously disappointed.  I didn't feel any urge to get myself further into my overdraft which is VERY unusual! The only exception was Zara, who never fail to put a smile on my face (I usually can't leave without a visit to the fitting room and often then to the till). So, to the bank's great delight, I only bought one embellished military jacket from Zara and a few bits from the ever growing Urban Outfitters sale!  But I did also develop a MAJOR new crush...neon jewellery!

I have a great love for chunky jewellery, actually jewellery of any shape, size or form! I am constantly on the look out for statement necklaces, chunky rings and bracelets to add to my collection! This weekend was no different. Although I wasn't lusting after any of the clothes in store, I did pick up some bargainous little jewellery beauties from H+M - bright coral bracelets with silver studding and beads - AMAZO especially at £3.99 a pop! This has now prompted my new obsession for bright, bold, neon jewellery!

The London Mice seem to have fallen into the habit of wearing Topshop Leigh skinnies paired with a cashmere vests or tees...the perfect canvas for a statement yellow metallic collar don't you think, I'm currently dreaming of owning this incredible Danni Jo piece, but at $695 I'd better stop dreaming and start putting in the overtime....

Both designers and the high street are jumping on the bandwagon and acid hues are popping up everywhere! Full on neon or even just a highlight of colour....regardless I am in LOVE with the look...to get you in the mind frame take a little look at these streetstyle snaps showing the trend in action....

You can jazz up a plain tee, layer over a graphic tee, turn a preppy outfit into a cool yet glam style, pair with a utility blouse to work or even with a little dress for evening cocktails! In love yet?! Best trend ever...we all need to get involved!!!
