Sarah v. Mother Nature

You’d think the many hours a week I spend reading and highlighting textbooks would make me avoid neon colors in the rest of my life. But no, I went right for this highlighter yellow colorblock top and wore it with bright pink lipstick. This outfit seemed perfect for a brisk yet sunny day. And it was…Until brisk and sunny turned into DARK and SNOWY.

OK, the dark part wasn’t really a surprise. But the snow is not welcome in March! It should be spring, and I am going to make it spring with my neon colors! You hear that, Mother Nature? You won this round, but I’ll be back.

This might be the most low-key outfit I’ve worn in a long time. There’s something about fashion/style blogging that makes you want to try something daring every day, even if you’re not doing it consciously. At least that’s what I’ve discovered over the past 8 or so months.

I’m actually kind of glad this outfit happened, because it reminded me I do still love simple, classic, and comfortable dressing. (I also love ranch dressing.) Statement necklaces and print mixing are not required on a daily basis. Calm down, Sarah. Keep it real.
