Bloggers Do It Better: Neons + Neutrals

I feel like it has been forever since I’ve participated in the Bloggers Do It Better assignment series. I missed the last assignment because of traveling. Good news is that I’m back now! 🙂

I am in love with cobalt blue lately. I’ve never really been a blue person, but I’m loving this particular shade! I saw these shorts and I knew they would be perfect for summer. I love the fit, too–they’re very forgiving! I paired the shorts with a greige (gray + beige) blouse for this assignment (Neon + Neutral), but I think these shorts would also look great for a color-blocking outfit, i.e. with a bright top.

I bought this belt last year during Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale and just now took the tags off. I kind of forgot I had it, but I’m glad I rediscovered it because I like it a lot! It reminds me of Carrie’s belt in SATC The Movie (the first one)!

    I love the blouse and shorts. Not too thrilled about that belt paired with the shorts though – just my view.

      What would you have paired with the blouse and shorts? I love seeing everyone’s different perspectives. That’s the awesome thing about personal style!
