{on a grey & rainy weekend ...}

I'm in need of a little pick me up. This dose of neon yellow will probably be my only source of Vitamin D this weekend ...




Ahhh, just the happy pick-me-up I was looking for! Side note: I think I've had a recent epiphany! I've been aware that my posts have included a lot more fashion than usual in the last few weeks ... I think I figured out why. Not only am I longing for spring like every one else is ... I've been in my pj's a lot more than usual lately! Why you ask? Well, since starting to write my thesis last month I've been working from home ... for the first time since I went to kindergarten preschool! I'm not used to this, I normally get dressed and go every single day. So I think I'm itching for some fashion :) To all of you that regularly get up and get dressed to work from home each day I commend you!! That is not so easy to do.

Hope you enjoy the last bits of your weekend!

I am completely obsessed with neon at the moment - can't get enough of it! I always get dressed when I'm working from home - you don't know who might knock at the door ;)

Loving the Kate Spade bag and shoes! And I could use a bit of a pick-me-up from this very sandy weekend we've been having!

It's surprising me but I am totally loving neon too! Great images!

Karla said...

I need a neon accent in my wardrobe!
what are you studying? Good luck with your thesis!

Catarina said...

Little hints of neon look great and I love the photos you posted. It can make a somewhat boring outfit look so much brighter and better.

Nancy I love your observation. I think you are onto something. I too have written more post on fashion than I normally do. I kind of pull in a little bit in February. It is the first month after the Holidays that are not full of a lot of comings and goings so I have been in my soft clothes too!! Love your pops of neon!! Kathysue

Woooo hooo, lovin that yellow color. Some days I'm stuck in my pjs because if I'm not shooting, I'm behind the computer editing. I've had days where it starts getting dark and I haven't gotten out of them. Hate that!!! Spring is coming soon and we shall see some more of that brightness in the sky. That will be a fabulous reason to get out of the jammies.

I am definitely longing for spring! I need some sunshine in my life. :) I completely understand the desire for fashion when you are not getting dressed up a lot. I get in those routines myself. :)

I hope this color never goes out:)

Isn't working from home the best? Could never go back to the corporate world. Hope your thesis is coming along!

Loving the neon theme! I couldn't agree more! Spring could not come sooner!

Somebody painted their white Victorial townhouse front door bright neon pink down the road from me and it looks utterly amazing. I would do this if i had the guts. I always look out for it as it always cheers me up.

Ugh! It's gray and dreary here in L.A., too. This jolt of yellow did far better to wake me from my haze than my coffee. Thanks!

I'm really enjoying the nice pops of neon that I'm seeing. They are really a nice pick-me-up and make me quite happy. I saw some really cute clutches in Target. Hope all is well Nancy!

Brandi@ Flights of Whimsy said...

I like a little bit of fashion sprinkled into decor. I'm craving spring as well. I already got a bunch of spring color block stuff from zara last week!

Amanda Hill said...

They have a bag almost exactly like that at Target...so tempted to add a pop on neon! But those flats gahhh I need those!

Lisa @ Cozy Condo Living said...

Oooh! That yellow really is a pick-me-up color. I'm jealous that you get to work from home. Getting dressed for work everyday is over rated.

This little citron color pop was just what I need this morning!!

Good look writing your thesis!! I'm 5 for 6 in terms of getting out of my PJs to work at home. Today would be the off day. I just couldn't do it!

I like so much that neon door, makes a great contrast with the b&w wall paper.

You have an elegant blog!
I am following you via google friend.
