Bright white and neon pink ...

I love jersey dresses and they work equally well for work or play and this one has done both! I wore it when I went to Birmingham along with my Doc Martens and this was how I wore it for work. I love the neon pink trim and the length is perfect, long enough that you don't have to worry about not being able to sit on it (ahem Topshop!) On a side note, I have now been confirmed as a permanent member of the marketing team (YAY!) and I did managed to go twelve weeks without repeating an outfit, quite a feat, I'm sure you'll agree! 

Dress: Mango, blazer: ASOS, shoes:Hobbs, belt: from a H! by Henry Holland jumpsuit
Since I bought this blazer, I have worn it numerous times, it adds the perfect amount of colour, texture and pattern to an outfit and makes me feel like some sort of 80s powerhouse with those shoulders! 


I would like to meet whoever said that wearing white and/or makes you look more tanned because as these pictures show, IT'S JUST NOT TRUE! I think the white has merely highlighted just how ghostly I really am! I love wearing white but I think colour is needed to ensure that you don't look completely washed out so the neon band was perfect. Saying that, the only time I have worn neon was for a neon party at uni, I love bright colours but all out neon, not so much...


As ever, I went to new lengths with being matchy matchy, I was tempted by my pink blazer to wear with it but I felt a bit 'Legally Blonde' so I went for a slightly more understated option instead...


Which clothes do you wear for work and play? Would you wear white or neon?

I like matchy matchy! I can't do all the clashing that's in fashion now. I much prefer to match. Love your shoes as well. I really wish I could do heels but apparently I have no balance whatsoever!

I quite like being matchy matchy sometimes, it makes me feel more put together. You look lovely, btw, that shade of pink is incredible xo

I think that dress might be my favourite piece from your wardrobe. It's so pretty. I love the pink detailing around the white: perfection.
