Don't be Scared of...Neon

With the exception of my neon green Blackberry case, I generally tend to steer clear of super bright hues. Instead, I gravitate toward a softer, muted palette--one that I find more flattering against my blond, pale-ish coloring, and one that isn't so, well, LOUD. However, this season's penchant for brights (along with Jil Sanders' awesomely blinding SS2011 collection), has me currently dreaming in Technicolor. And while I'm not sure that I'll ever be brave enough to sport a shocking orange t-length paper bag skirt, I've found a few ways to incorporate neon in a slightly less intimidating sort of way.
