neon + neutral

lately, one of my favorite things has been pairing a bright, in-you-face fluorescent with an unassuming neutral.

and it's kind of popping up everywhere...

but as much as i would die to own one (call me, matthew!) these fabulous looks are sorta totally out of my reach.

never fear.

here are a some more budget-minded ways of rocking these seemingly strange bedfellows

i have that michael kors bag in an off-white shade. but that green one is sooo cool looking.

i also appreciate this scarf. i love what the hint of neon does to an otherwise basic piece.

looking for other ways to make this pairing work?

here's what etsy has to offer:

i'm so sad this pillow has already sold. because i would have given it a very lovely home. but this one is still available, and i love the pattern.

or why not incorporate this ampersand design as part of a wall collage?

it also would make a fun addition to a bookshelf. i tend to store a few tchotchkes and framed items among my books and i like the idea of adding this one.

the contrast in colors and texture just really work here.

or, are you going on a trip soon?

this handy travel wallet will hold all of your travel documents in one place. 

totally feeling the abstract pattern too.

looking forward to seeing more of this cool color combo in the spring and beyond.
