Too Bright Or Just Right?

Eye-popping brights. I am mostly a neutral lover. So, it is no surprise that neon color trends scare me a little. Nevertheless, since seeing Budget Babe’s spring trend post on orange and pink, I’ve been surprisingly drawn to the color combo. Typically, I would play it safe and modestly incorporate eye-popping color by using an accessory like the pictured scarf. However, today, I felt like taking a risk.
A pink cable knit tank is layered under an orange cable knit cardigan. The tops are paired with a herringbone A-line skirt. Tan square-toe leather pumps, a tan belt, and a print scarf add final touches.
What do you think?

    Naturally, I think it’s brilliant! I especially like the shade of both the orange and the pink. The skirt, shoes and belt balance the brights just right. Definitely inspiring.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I guess it worked out!

    Anon: I know. I would not have “thunk” it either. Thanks to budget babe for opening my eyes.

    Enc: Thanks for that!

    Budget Babe: Your post was the inspiration. So, thank you!

    Sara: Don’t fight it, just come on by 🙂 I always love when you do.

    Kim: Great! You so should. I would love to see the pics too 😉

    Seeker: So right about taking risks. You know, apart from playing with color, I do not usually wear belts. But, I’ve been taking notes from your belted cardigan looks.

    I’d say just right. But I’m biased since I wear bright color more often:-)
