Welcome to a cocktail of floral and neon!
Personally, I have never been one to wear vibrant colours in terms of clothing and make-up. For years I have mostly remained in my classic blacks and darker shades, possibly out of habit or maybe just because I love black! However, over the last few months I have been attempting to inject some colour here and there. And you know what? Feels quite nice to do something a bit different. By no means am I suddenly going to be strolling around town looking like a mobile candy stand.
I have always found floral designs pleasing to the eye and I do find certain pieces stunning. Whether I would wear them all is a different story, hence why I would be very specific about the items I would actually wear. I believe in choosing things for me and not just following fashion for the sake of it like a stray puppy.
So here is a little collection of items I currently own, apart from the shoes. Still got my eye on them!
Usually I am a bikini kind of girl, but let’s face it, there are some days where you’re not as ‘body confident’ as you’d like to be. So a tankini is the perfect choice in my opinion. A gorgeous and festive print and a flattering option at the same time. Looks amazing with a tan!
Orange Nail Lacquer, by OPI
The one thing that has always been an exception to my overall ‘dark look’ is my nails! I have always felt comfortable going for vivid nail polish colours. It’s a subtle option and elevates any outfit. This neon orange shade brings my hands to life and stays on for a substantial amount of time without chipping.
'Gardinia' Wedges, by Carvela/Kurt Geiger
I fell in love with the combination of studs and print on these wedges. I am still in the process of thinking ” Do I, or don’t I?” They really embody the neon/floral look - feminine with a tough edge, thanks to the little golden studs.
422 Coral Tonic, Colour Sensational by Maybelline
I had been on the lookout for a the right coral lipstick for a while and finally came across this one. It was ideal for me as it was a softer take on the coral lip, without being too bright. I believe that coral/orange lipsticks are like red: you have to find the right shade to suit you, and there is one for everyone, you just have to find it!
Remember, you do not have have to take neon and prints to the extreme. You can do it subtly with accessories or make-up without completely dedicating yourself to the look. On the other hand, if you are brave and are naturally one to take risks, put your chameleon hat on and go crazy!
