Tart Touches

It must be no secret by now that my current obsession with neon is out of control. Surprisingly, I had never really considered this pallet of colors, despite my love of bright hues. Yet, as I set out this weekend to the San Jose Crossroads Trading Co.'s re-grand opening party, celebrating its expanded location, I found it only fitting to sport the fluorescent orange, J. Crew belt, I acquired earlier that week, at the store. For a little color-blocking fun, I added a lime green cross-body satchel, completing the basic black ensemble. With both tangy touches for under $25.00, they are just the things to bring me some summer solace as I await the warm days to come.

No way! I just bought that same bag and I'm OBSESSED. I'd been swooning over a more expensive style for months, so I just had to snatch it up when I saw it at Target. I saw yours on Refinery29's contest and just had to pop by and say I love how you styled it with the orange belt. Here's how I've worn it so far:

How else are you planning on styling it?

Thanks Celeste! I had not thought of doing the bag with grey! Might need to do! i am thinking of pairing it with some cobalt blue skinny jeans or skirt <3 and also maybe neon pink pumps with some white ensemble <3 Stay tuned!
