Neon Lights + GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

Today is such an exciting day for me because this post is my 100th post on Spotted.Chic.  This blog was created entirely on a whim in the middle of my PSYCH101 class and I can’t begin to thank all my readers and friends who have supported me through this journey.  To show my appreciation, I wanted to have a little giveaway, so keep reading or scroll to the bottom of this post to see what I am giving away and how to enter.

I have been wearing this neon chartreuse jacket any chance I get because it’s starting to get to that point where I feel uncomfortable wearing such a loud color in public.  To tone down the brightness of the jacket, I paired it with a simple grey chiffon tank with some cutouts in the shoulder/collarbone area and a pair of my favorite ripped boyfriend jeans.

I know I said that I loved my jacket, but I also LOVE these booties! If you read my August Hits and Misses post, you will know that I recently purchased these lovely booties and that I am in love with them.  They are so comfortable and so versatile.  The foundation of the outfit is pretty simple, but I think the jacket and shoes really pull it together and make it the outfit a lot more interesting.

When in Rome

I wish I was in Rome, but I guess the Getty Villa will have to do for now.  I got really sick throughout the months of April and May – thus the lack of posts, but I am back! Before I got sick I made a quick trip to LA for a few days and got in a little sight-seeing.

Up to this day, I have never owned a maxi dress.  They are cool in theory, much like all those “As Seen on TV” products, but for some reason, I can never make the commitment to buy one.  I’ve tried on many, thinking that each time I’m going to have a moment of epiphany and I’ll somehow see what others have been raving about, and every time I end up handing it back to the nice person in the dressing room.

Well, the tables have turned because this maxi dress fails to make  me look like I’m drowning in a sea of  jersey material and is super soft and flowy.  The open slit detail on the skirt hits right above my knee, so it gives the illusion that I have longer legs and the ruching detail on top slightly highlights my waist.  I find that a lot of maxi dresses can be quite suffocating because it is so much material around your body, but this dress flows as you walk so even when it’s really hot, your legs aren’t constricted by lots of fabric.  This dress will definitely be a staple in my closet for the summer!

What are you loving for the spring and summer? Let me know!

Stay Chic!
