Dress - H&M, Flats - Shoemint, Necklaces - Lisa Taubes and Target, Nails - Julie G in Cupcakes and Castles (found at Rite Aid)




If Essie's Pink Parka and China Glaze Shocking Pink came in dress form, well this would be the dress! I must admit that the hue is a bit jarring. Under the pretty lights in H&M, this LND (little neon dress) looked much more subdued. Bright yes, but not quite as in-your-face as it magically appeared once I brought it home. I sat and stared at it for awhile before putting it on. What it lacks in subtlety it makes up for in personality. Talk about a conversation starter! Normally I'm timid in social settings but this dress forces me to be out there. I think that's a good thing, at least for a shy one like myself. Paired with minimal accessories and simple flats, it is a great casual dress to wear to the beach or to a BBQ (exactly where I wore it). Just don't expect to blend in :)

  2. You found the dress - yay! Everytime I saw it in H&M I thought of you. I've tried it on too - and it did NOT look cute on me, but it looks gorgeous on you :-) I think the simple design offsets the bright color - you look lovely!

  4. I love this dress and I really wish H&M would get thier online shopping going already. I think Ella is right the design does offset the bright color. It looks great on you and I love how you styled it.

  6. I can be shy in social situations too -- but I find that a dress or accessory that's a conversation-starter TOTALLY helps!

  11. That's such a pretty dress and it looks amazing on you. I'm bummed I missed out on it. I got a similar one in orange, it's slightly low-high. Love the pink so much better.

  19. I love it! You can definitely pull off shocking neon pink. It looks so great with your hair and skin tone! I agree that styling it with flats helps make the look more casual and barbecue-appropriate.
