One of the biggest trends this spring is neon! So I need to publicly apologize to my friend Andrea. She started wearing a neon pink J. Crew tank last summer and I told her that I wasn’t going to do neon again! I did it in the 90’s and I wasn’t going to repeat the trend! Well, she was ahead of the curve and I need to learn to never say never! Geesh! I was wrong and I’ve been sporting my fair share of neon this spring and I’m loving it! It is important to note that unlike in the early 90’s, do NOT wear neon head to toe. One or two hits of it in an outfit will do the trick!
Here are some of my fave neon picks…remember…only one or two pieces at a time, such as a scarf and shoes, or a t-shirt and a bracelet. Keep other pieces in your outfit neutral…denim works very well with neon. A little goes a long way!

You only need one more thing to really carry out the neon trend…the perfect neon polish….oh, and do I have a fave!
Essie’s Boom Boom Room is the perfect cotton candy pink. I apply it without using a white underneath…I don’t find it necessary! It’s a fresh and fun color that looks fantastic with a bit of a tan!
So for me, it’s a lesson learned! Trends come back and, yes, sometimes they are worth repeating….but never literally…things always come back with a twist!
