{Dress: Old Navy (on sale!) / Sweater: Old Navy / Wedges: Sam Edelman / Bag: Rebecca Minkoff via Poshmark (old style, but the studded version is available here) / Belt: The Limited / Pave Bracelet: Groopdealz / Lips: Revlon in Strawberry Shortcake}
I’m at a loss for what to call the color of my dress…neon? Highlighter/glowstick yellow? Citron (after the Furla bag I’m coveting)? Whatever the proper name is, the color is really punchy and fun, but the feminine cut of the dress keeps it on the classier side of things. I never thought classy was a word I would use to describe neon anything, but Old Navy really surprised me with this one! It is more cheery & sophisticated sun dress, and less 1980s aerobics video, so I thought it would be a good way to give the neon trend a try on a larger scale. 
I wore this to my sister-in-law’s graduation last weekend (congratulations, Chels!!), but it was a little chilly so I threw on the navy boyfriend cardigan to serve multiple purposes: keep my arms warm and tone down the neon a bit to make it slightly more refined.  The burgundy bag was kind of an afterthought, as I just wanted something large enough so my camera could fit inside and I’ve been carrying this bag every day lately anyway, but I ended up really liking the burgundy/neon,citron,highlighter/navy combination. It felt fresh and unexpected.
As for the shoes, these are my first pair of Sam Edelmans. I am in love, and I don’t care who knows it! I am in the process of tracking them down in black. If you have these (Sam Edelman Javi wedge) in black in a size 7, or even in a 7.5, and would like to get rid of them, please email me!!! I can’t find them anywhere, but I need them in my life.





Congratulations, Chels! We are SO proud of you!!

    This post is old, but I was scoping out the web to read reviews on the Javi’s and saw you were looking for black 7’s! They have them here– (hopefully they aren’t sold out by the time you see this) 🙂 My question is how do they fit for you? I wear 9’s in flats and 8.5 in heels. I’ve read mixed reviews and would love your take!

      OMG thank you!!! I’m going to order them as soon as my tan ones sell on Poshmark! They run small on me…I’m a pretty true 7, but these were a little too small. I think I’ll buy an 8 this time, but I think part of the problem is that my feet are a little wider than average. I would go with the 9s if I were you! Thank you, Allison!

    This outfit is so cute! I love the color combination, and the pop of leopard 🙂 Is this how your hair looks naturally? It’s so pretty!
