My neon obsession

I've talked about neon before. I feel like I can't stop talking about it. First, it was neon and olive. Then it was those Prabal Gurung for Target heels, which led to bright stripes. Well, guess what? I'm still not done talking about it. I've had a bit of a neon yellow shopping week.

It has been raining for basically the entire week, and I was so not feeling it this morning. I pushed the limits on casual Friday, but I wasn't really caring. I added some bling with my sequins to dress it up a little, and I turned to my old faithful Report booties. I was sure to switch to my rainboots though for outside.

Gosh I love those boots... But ok, back to the outfit and my current neon obsession. I bought this hoodie last weekend when I was in Lexington. I felt like I was drawn to everything that was highlighter yellow on that shopping trip. I ended up buying this neon top also.

And then there are these heels. *shakes angry fists at Kate Spade* I had been doing so well resisting them. But they kept appearing. Everywhere. In blogs. In stores. On Pinterest. They seriously stalked me. I finally reached my breaking point and decided to pull the trigger. The good thing is, after my Nordstrom notes and a return, I ended up paying less than a third of the retail price, so I'd say they're worth the wait. I cannot freaking wait to rock these!!

So, there you have it. Another gluttony session. I have no idea what's gotten into me lately. I am very surprised I'm even attracted to neon right now, much less obsessed. I can't promise I won't bring this up again, but I do thank you for letting me indulge in my ridiculousness. Carry on!
