my outfit: neon + neutrals!

I've really been meaning to break out this neon sweater lately and so when I saw the current Bloggers Do It Better challenge, I figured now was the time!  The weather couldn't decide if it was hot or cold, sunny or cloudy today so the extra light layers were just perfect.

My new summer hair "uniform" is the top messy bun, if you haven't noticed.  While I love the new color in my hair (love, love, love!) I also love not having to wash it every day and I really love having it off my neck.  So there ya go!

Even my toenails are a fun neon hue - My girlfriend and I got pedicures while I was in Seattle and I wanted to choose a color I didn't own already.  Isn't this color fun!?!? Sadly I did not notice the name or the brand.  See also the huge scab on my big toe - I had a little run in with a shampoo bottle in the shower falling on it - yikes!
