Nice 80's Outfit...

Dress:Target / Belt:Another Skirt / Sandals:Payless / Earrings:Forever 21 / Bracelets:Francesca's & Forever 21

I wore this outfit to our crawfish boil on Saturday and this was the comment I received from one of the gents, "Nice, 80's outfit. I didn't know it was a costume party". Funny guy, right?

I am pretty positive that most men don't get the neon trend or have a clue about color blocking or the mint craze or accent nail polish, but do "we" honestly dress for "them" anyway?  I say not. We all know that for the most part, women dress to impress other women.  I mean we are the ones that compliment each another.  I don't hear my dude friends walking up to me saying, "Love those wedges. Where are they from?" or "Your statement necklace is so pretty? Can I borrow it?"  

Do you agree?   

Eighties style or not, I really do hope the neon colors stick around awhile. If they don't, oh well, at least I will have plenty of options for future costume parties.

In case you were wondering, the crawfish boil was a huge success.  We were so blessed to have had so many good friends and family attend.  The food was amazing, the weather was perfect, lots of laughs were had and plenty of memories were made. 


Cheers to making it a great week!


Today I am linking up with these fine ladies!

whoever said that has no idea what they are talking about! this outfit is adorable!

Katie said...

I personally love the pops of neon - your outfit is so fun! I think that it can be easy to go overboard on the trend (you don't want to look like a highlighter!)...but keeping it to some accessories or touches of neon is totally fantastic!

TheTinyHeart said...

I love your cute chevron/stripe dress and all your fun neon accessories! I agree, guys don't really know much about fashion trends! Clearly that guy doesn't know neon is back in style!

I love that dress! You definitely look 80's to me at all. That crawfish boil looks absolutely delicious.

Morgan Stone said...

The crawfish boil looks like it was so fun! And you're so right about men not understanding fashion. In my opinion, if a man thinks something you have on is crazy, it's a good indication that you're actually dressed well.

Lindsay said...

Love the whole outfit! And you're right, we don't dress for men.

tara said...

I think you look so cute!!

Yep. Love your outfit. And totally agree about the men comment. My husband hates my colored skinny jeans and anything that I wear that is colorful. Sigh. They just won't understand.
