I like a little predictability with my fashion brands. There’s nothing worse than finding a new favorite brand because you love their entire collection only to have the next one be a complete bust. Or finding the best basics only to have a brand stop making them. I like being able to count on finding certain items whenever I want them. One of my favorite releases that happens every year is J. Crew’s neon sweaters. They always have an entire collection of bright knits and I’m always drawn to the neon pink sweaters and cardigans. Luckily they’re in slightly different hues than the year before so I have an excuse to buy more!
I’m up to three neon pink sweaters so far: a super bright pink cardigan, a fuchsia shrunken sweater, and the latest, this three-quarter sleeve neon pink sweater. I love how the marled fabric makes it a very bright but still soft pink.
Usually I wear these nice sweaters with my work clothes but earlier this week I paired my new one with jeans for a casual look. I really like the look of lighter pinks with gold so I added lots of gold jewelry and my gold glitter Keds to finish this outfit. If you’ve never worn glitter shoes before, get some immediately, they’re so much fun! I was worried these would be too dressy when I first got them but they actually work really well for all sorts of looks.
I really like how this look turned out, and just thinking about this sweater makes me want to pick up more styles in the same color (especially since they’re on sale). It actually ended up being really cold outside on the day we took these pictures so the bright color of this neon pink sweater was a nice way to make the day seem less dreary. It even began raining on us right after we started shooting so we had to make a mad dash for cover! Ahh, the life of a fashion blogger.
