We’ll be glow-in-the-dark..
I have a confession to make: This is the third time I’ve worn a variation of this outfit this week. Yes, I am a serial repeat (outfit) offender. It’s not my fault, I just love this colour against my hair and skintone! Neon is a very “now” trend of Spring and Summer and I’m currently going through stores in Australia, looking for other tops in this bright tone. Not very easy to find! Target has a great sorbet range with this colour in it, but I’m waiting for sale time to roll around. My mother just jumped the gun and bought jeans in this neon shade and when we met up in the city one day, she was wearing the jeans and I was wearing this top and we were both wearing black accompaniments and.. yeah. Shopping with her in matching outfits. SUPER!
I digress though. This top is brilliant. It’s crafted in a stretchy spandex sort of material with little cut outs in patterns across the fabric and it feels kind of tribal, too! It was an absolute steal at $10 from ASOS! As the weather gets warmer, it made sense to pair it with a cute pair of structured pleather shorts, and I added a little studs and spikes to the outfit for a more edgy feel.
Here’s the rundown:
DIY Spike Hairband! – Tutorial here
Gold Choker – Equip, $5
River Island Neon Singlet – ASOS, $10 (with coupon code!)
Neon Skinny Belt – Target, free with another skirt
Gold Spike Bracelet – eBay, $2
Triangle Ring – eBay, $2.30 (came in a set; Topshop replicas)
Pleather Shorts – Cotton On, $5 (On sale because they fit really badly–lucky I have a sewing machine!)
(Leather) Bejeweled Stiletto Peeptoes – L&J Shoe Gallery, $25
Total: $49.30! If you’re ever likely to catch me out shopping, this is the outfit I’ll be wearing this Summer.
Speaking of Summer–I’ve started an exercise regime on the bike to try and get my legs slimmed down for the Summer. Hopefully, you’ll all note the shrinkage of Thunder Thighs, and if all goes well, I’ll even be showing off where I got my amazingly beautiful swimsuit from for only $20! Look forwards to that in a few months.
And for those who have a keen eye, you’ll notice that I’m sporting my new haircut in this outfit post! Like it? More details on that coming up later. ;)
