Hello all! This week, as I've tried to be work-place professional, I've also been trying to integrate neon pieces into my outfits. From this post, I think you could probably tell I love neon, but sometimes it can be so over the top and just feel like too much at work. However, I am all about a challenge and I think this outfit really manages to make neon appropriate in any situation.

The first key was finding the right neon piece. At work, a neon shift dress like this or a neon necklace over black is easy. You maintain your typical work place uniform, but make it more interesting with color. Also, it is very hard to be unprofessional when wearing a shift dress!

Once you choose your piece, it is important that the rest of your outfit is a little more subdued and very business professional. Now I am not normally one to say tone it down, but at there is a time and a place for everything and an office job is not the time or the place for an extremely over the top outfit.

My go-to when trying to be professional is a shift dress, suit jacket, and statement necklace so it was easy to transition those over to this dress. A light gray suit jacket is perfect of summer because it lightens up your outfit while also making your more summery pieces business-like.

Finally, my favorite part of this outfit is my bag. I just got it from the Kate Spade sale and it is absolutely perfect for work. The style is professional and it is big enough to hold my computer and all of my other stuff without being too overly large. Well, that's all for now, so until next time, XO
