Dinner with Anna Wintour, racing with Anja Rubik

lets add some bright color into our lives! Wearing neon during finals might just do the trick in keeping you from crashing on top or your desk, and as a bonus, you’ll look completely put together and trendy during this crazy time.

Now, I wasn’t really sure about the neon trend when it first hit the runways, but after seeing different variations of it, I decided to give it a try with this neon tank top from Old Navy (a steal at $3).  I paired it with my Forever21 sleeveless trench to tone it down a bit, and I keep the rest of the outfit relatively minimal and simple.  Baby steps!

girl gone wild

…with colors! (is it M.D.N.A or Madonna?).  Don’t know anymore, but I do know that color blocking has been one of the funnest trends to try.  A week back, Derek (http://fromshoestospecs.blogspot.com) and I embarked on a photo-shoot with Colin, a super talented student with mad camera skills.

I went for a bold approach (obviously) and I loved the end result.  I kept it casual by adding the trusted jean jacket, a serious wardrobe staple.  Color blocking is one of the trickiest trends to pull off because it has to be cohesive.  Try combining soft colors within the same color wheel first, for example mint with navy, then progress into diva territory.  Go for yellow and purple, orange and pink- be fun and fearless!

With the heat creeping up on us rather steadily, I suggest the outfits below for a summer friendly version.
