My block hot. My block burn. My block on fire. What about yours? - Lil Wayne


Warning: this outfit is VERY bright. As a neon addict, I do not believe one can ever go too far. In fact, I have no qualms about blinding passers-by with my squint-inducing ensembles. With that being said, one can see why I find neon color blocking hot. I love any excuse to pile it on.

I absolutely live for these wedges, and I'm not even a wedge girl (I'll take my heels 6inch+ and chunky please), but all of that extra foot support gives me the extra neon I crave. Sometimes, I like things strictly based on their color. My skin tone seems to be just perfect for white and neon. When going this bright, a neutral can help those beautiful colors stand out more (Yasss!). My fave white blazer did the trick in this outfit. 

I can thank my fave online store for the brightest orange skirt I have ever seen. Seriously. Pictures cannot capture just how bright this skirt is. It was love at first sight. I will admit that you have to be brave to wear this neutral-less as I did later that night. It can be overwhelming to some. But as you know, to me, more is more. And I like my block hot.
