Clothed with Grace: Professional Neon?

Professional Neon?

This outfit is pretty much this outfit's first cousin.  I didn't do it on purpose, but as I was looking at these pictures I realized the similarity.  When I got this top, I loved it, but I had no idea what I'd wear it with, now a year later I'm amazed at all the different combos I've come up with for a neon green shirt. Who'd have thought it? Needless to say, I love this combo and yes, I am declaring this outfit "Professional Neon" and seriously considering adding this one to my collection next.  What about you, have you embraced neon?

  8. I love it! Just enough neon to be fun but not enough to be over the top and non-professional. :-)

  13. I just bought my first neon green top and I have yet to wear it... but this is giving me some inspiration! I think layering neon with neutrals in fall is such a great trend. Anyway, hope you can stop by my blog and enter my $50 Nordstrom gift card giveaway!

  14. I always love how you have a necklace to match this top! And I think keeping the rest of the outfit neutral keeps the neon in check for work.

  19. I usually don't like neon at all (especially not neon orange or pink), but I do have a neon yellowish-green sleeveless blouse that I really like to wear, especially with dark neutrals like black and gray (like you did here!). I have worn mine to work before, and I think it was appropriate since I wore it with some patterned pants and a black cardigan to keep it "grounded" and to keep it from being too bright and overwhelming. I think that's the trick to professional neon (love that term!). I think you did a great job of styling this top so that it looks perfect for work!!
