Holiday Style Diary #2: Turn On The Brights!

The Neon trend has stormed the fashion world over recent seasons. Even those who may prefer an outfit that it somewhat more understated, can join in with a fab pop of colour in the form of a necklace, or even just nail polish brights! Post go-karting (excuse my helmet hair..!) I took some gorgeous pictures on the cliffs just a stones-throw away from our hotel, to showcase a casual neon holiday look. This outfit also features my gorgeous Summer babies - Limited Edition Bambi and Manson #shortshorts!


Neon Green V - Neck Blouse // Zara £22.95 £19.99 SALE
'Plush Pink' Nail Polish // Leighton Denny £11
White Lace Espadrilles // Red Herring (Past Season) Similar here

This Zara shirt served me well as a holiday buy. But then again, I'm not sure when Zara have ever let me down! As well as serving as the centrepiece of this look, the material is so lovely and light, and thin enough that I also used it as a cover up to sling on over my bikini if it got too hot - ideal! The basic style is simple, yet the neon green adds dimension to the outfit which screams 'fun'. However, wear with caution girls - this is not a shirt to have on, on one of those 'I want to blend in' days!

To take my neon palette a little further, I added my bright Pink Multi Chain Necklace from NEXT, which I talked about at the very beginning of my blog a couple of months ago. I wear this all the time and it makes adding a pop of colour to a basic outfit, very simple. NEXT have some absolutely gorgeous neon jewellery in at the moment I would really recommend having a good old browse - you can see a few of my favourites, here. To tie together this look, I threw on a coat of Leighton Denny's 'Plush Pink' varnish, which complements the stunning fuchia colour of the necklace. Usually, I will keep my nails free of varnish in the sun, to let the Vit D work it's magic! However, here I couldn't resist co-ordinating even more brights... Just for fun!

I cannot finish this post without saying a few words about my #BAMS. Neon is bright enough to put a smile on my face, but chatting about these shorts gives me a full on cheesy grin. Bambi and Manson are a girlfriend/boyfriend denim duo, who endeavour to make 'the world a hotter place, one girl at a time'. I certainly have the hots for them both, as well as their amazing designs, and was overjoyed a few months back when I finally got my hands on a pair of their Limited Edition Shorts - which sell like hot cakes! You can read much more about the denim duo in my detailed post on Bambi and Manson and their incredible work, by clicking here. As well as recently collaborating with the beautiful Millie Mackintosh, the pair have also teamed up with True Religion and are now on the shelves in Selfridges! You need some of these in your Summer wardrobe girls... there's a pair to suit everyone.


How have you been wearing neon this season?
