It definitely smells like summer here, and the air feels slightly humid and warm. The air reminds me of summer breezes, tall prairie grasses, and swimming pools!
I took swimming lessons throughout my childhood and into my teenage years. These warm days and summer breezes remind me of mornings in the park district pool- wearing my hot pink swim shoes and ruffled bathing suit as a girl. While, alas, I do not go to the pool on Monday mornings, I still reminisce in grown-up hot pink accessories at work. In my adult hot pink summer clothes, I wore a brightly colored pleated chiffon skirt with a neon top and necklace.
Skirt: Ann Taylor ($20 marked down from $70)
Shirt: Ann Taylor ($10 marked down from approx $25)
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack ($14 marked down from $40)
Shoes: Jellypop at DSW ($12 marked down from $60)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Platforms are an easy way to walk in heels at work. I was not sure if the metallic heel would be too edgy for work. However, by pairing the shoes with a long skirt, I was able to keep the look conservative enough for work. These shoes were a yellow sticker purchase at DSW, so they were 80% off! When I last checked, the shoes were available here! They are not on clearance online, but still a pretty good deal online at 50% off.
2) Make neon pieces work appropriate by only wearing 1-2 neon pieces at a time. The shirt and necklace were both neon, but the skirt was a bit more muted. Adding brown pumps (even these jazzy ones), still kept everything work appropriate.
Wearing hot pink at work just makes everything brighter!
