Neons, Florals and a Know It All

"When you get older, Pigtails, you can know everything like me,"
Princess Sparkles told her little sister.
"Babies don't know anything.  Just how to cry and spit up.
Bucket spits up a lot."
It's true, he does.  Maybe she does know everything.

NEON SWEATER AND WEDGES - Old Navy, $6 and $13
ORANGE CUT-OFFS - See Through Soul (Nordstrom Rack), $30
FLORAL TANK - Marshalls, $13
HAT - Eugenia Kim for Target, $17
BRACLETS - Heavenly Treasures

This week I'm participating in "Fashion Challenge: This or That Trends" from Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki.  I decided to combine the last half of the trends in this one outfit - florals, neon and colored bottoms!  I was excited because this also allows me to link up with Everybody Everywear's neon challenge! 

Princess Sparkles teaches Pigtails and Bucket "everything."

I love wearing neon colors.  They're so bold and fun!  Though I have to admit I'm not always sure exactly what to pair them with.  Maybe I should ask Princess Sparkles!

Claire I'm just gonna come out and say it--best outfit ever. I love your neon highlights and that top is gorgeous. Orange is a great color on you! And the hat is perfect as well. My kids think they know everything all the time too. Don't worry, it does not go away as they get older. In fact, it gets worse. ;-)
