Neon Pink Galentine.

Hope you all had a fantastic Valentine's Weekend! It seems like I still got Valentine in my mind in all this Hot Pink Goodness. This outfit is definitely not for the color-shy fashionistas out there but I am definitely not afraid of a little or a lot of color. Plus I hadn't worn this Hot Pink Patterned Wrap Dress in a long while. As a matter of fact earlier that day (prior to these photos) I wore the same dress to work with a black cardigan over it, black opaque tights, black leather wedges, the same necklace and 360 stud earrings and a French bun. But I wasn't able to take photos of that look. I will just let you imagine it. =)

That same evening three of my co-workers and I decided to do a quick Galentine night by celebrating at one of our favorite local restaurants with dinner, drinks and even dessert. Two of my co-workers are single and the other one is a newly-wed. I decided to stick to the same dress but in a bold move I paired it with matching Hot Pink Opaque Tights and for a little edge I did these Heeled Black Booties instead of a pump.  I accessorized with a Pearl+Crystal Necklace, Pearl Studs and a Pearl+Fireball Flower Headband. I also carried an Ivory Fold-over Clutch. I kept my makeup very simple: a little blush, black mascara and a caramel lip. Just like with my Patterned Pink Leggings, a few accessories and I was able to change this Outfit from my work (daytime) look to my fun (evening) look. Do you own a Hot Pink/Neon Pink Patterned Dress? How would you style it?
