These neon green shorts were one of the easiest pieces to choose!
Not only did they work well for a date day outfit last week, but they worked for our Sunday morning errands and Sunday evening dinner on the hotel patio.
Shirt: Old Navy (3 years ago) // Tank: Target ($8 clearance)
Shorts: H&M (last year) // Shoes: BOBS ($22 clearance)
Neon colors can be a little intimidating, but I have found that they consistently go with more than I expect. They are especially great for pairing with neutrals when you want an outfit that is less busy but still colorful.
Adding a neon takes away the pressure of having to add a pattern or a statement piece (even though they can be worn with patterns and statement pieces, too!).
Neons can be tricky near your face, so pay attention to what color complements your complexion. The only neon that works near my face is neon pink! So I like that these shorts add some color without having to complement my skin tone.
White is definitely not a color I look best in without first being super tan, so I preferred this outfit with the light, chambray shirt. But seriously, ya'll, this shirt is so comfortable, I didn't feel like changing out of it when the day got hotter!
Also, I've never owned a pair of "real Toms," but I sure have gotten my money's worth out of these rip-offs!
These pieces aren't online anymore, but I linked some similar looks... all under $25!! (Except for the Toms)
Have you been wearing any neon looks lately?
