What's Up, Buttercup?

I love that as I am taking photos for this project I am capturing the phases of all of the different summer flowers as they come and go. This time, it's the buttercups! A childhood favorite of mine because they are so plentiful and there is a whole field of them behind my house. We used to say that if you hold a buttercup under your chin and your chin glows yellow (from the reflection of the sun) it means you like butter. 

Neon yellow is a recent favorite of mine for summer because it is so vibrant and sunny. I don't often wear pattern on pattern, but I was trying to find something other than a plain white shirt to wear with this skirt. Plus, florals on florals seemed fitting for this post! I accented the skirt with more neon yellow in the jewelry and flip flops. Too much? Never! Now just wait until I paint my nails to match...

One time last summer when I was wearing this skirt a car full of college kids drove past and someone yelled out the car at me, "go back to the 60's!" (or something to that effect). Sure, this skirt totally has a retro vibe, but I love it! Neon yellow has quickly become a summer essential for me, no matter what the haters say! The bright necklace and earrings are great additions to brighten many summer outfits, and the aztec flip flops are prefect for the beach. 

Skirt: J. Crew. Top: Garage, similar, similar, get the look. White jean jacket: Gap (less expensive at the Outlet store). Necklace: J. Crew, similar. Nails: Sally Hansen "Blue Away."
