Name that song, anyone???
It has to do with this sweater... and an old, old cd that I jam to regularly. If you guessed Neon by John Mayer from Room for Squares, you are right. Yes, he is a doofus (as far as the press in concerned) but when his pen goes to paper, fingers to guitar and mouth to microphone... he is genius.
I have been eyeing a super bright cardigan like this one for a while. I even had about 4 or 5 solid outfit configurations in my head of how I would style it as well. So when JCrew was having it's Final Sale with 30% off last week or whenever... it was MINE. I think I got it for less than $20.
But you know me, I'm not huge with color. So to keep it real I paired it with some brown's to mellow it out a bit. In general I thought this color would be hard/harsh to wear. Maybe it is the bit of summer skin left or my cool tones (dark hair/blue eyes) that makes it work. Either way I really like it - even though it's outside of my comfort zone for sure!
This fall with neutrals abounding as the palette of choice... I think a bold pop of color becomes not only easier to incorporate (just pair with greys, black or browns!) but almost necessary to keep things interesting... don't you? Will you consider a bright bold piece like this for fall?
