Fashion Up: Get Your Sunglasses On

This just in from the fashion people: color, color, color. Have you seen the new neon? It’s everywhere. Pink. Green. Orange. Just SCREAMING AT YOU.

Peruse J Crew‘s new arrivals and, if you’re my age, you’ll start singing the Thompson Twins or Spandau Ballet what for all the 80s influence. At least color wise.

That said, since I’m terrified of color (Yes, that’s right. It scares me), I’m totally intrigued with the new look coming out. I dream of being able to wear ORANGE and not going around apologizing to everyone I see for being so loud. It’s not that I’m meek minded as much as I like to blend.

But I won’t be blending in neutrals! I went for a hike with a friend this past weekend and she had on a deep turquoise sweatshirt with a neon orange vest and a blue-green scarf. What with her deep red hair, she looked amazing! Just amazing. For a hike!

So she’s inspired me to venture out a bit. Try some color.

I bought a hot pink scarf. Woooo hoooo.

    Funny how fashion always tends to get brighter when the economy is doing well and the nation feels more optimistic. I guess we are starting to see the light at the end of the recessionary tunnel, and it’s looking pink and green!

    I have to laugh because I didn’t think I was old enough that my own teenage fashions are already so retro that they are “coming back” in a real way. I don’t know what to think about that! I know I can’t wear spandex pants and neon shirts anymore … but I guess I can enjoy it from the sidelines.

    That picture makes me want to go shopping big time, Thanks a lot! lol I love all of the color but I find myself wearing a lot of brown and not a ton of color either. I love those colored pants and am very tempted to try something like that out! :)
