Neon, Neon

Chambray shirt, shirt (underneath), and sandals: Old Navy
Skirt (dyed): Target
Necklace: Forever 21
On my nails: China Glaze Frostbite with Sally Girl iridescent blue glitter 

I haven't blogged in a while, so what better way to get back into the swing of things with a no-fail outfit post.

This months Everybody, Everywear is neon. I don't really have neon in my closet and I didn't want to spend money on something I would probably wear once or twice. So I did the next best thing, I DIY'd it.

I have the ubiquitous lace skirt from Target that a lot of bloggers were wearing last year and with colored lace being popular this season, why not repurpose it? So I bought a box of Rit dye, in the brightest color I could find (besides yellow) and went to task of dying it. The box said it wasn't suitable for 100% polyester and synthetic fabrics, but I went for it anyway and I'm quite pleased with the results.
The slip didn't take to the dye too well, but I like how it's lighter than the lace. So now I have a brand new skirt that only cost me $2.29.

Don't forget to check out Everybody, Everywear to see how other bloggers styled their neon pieces.
