Neon Pops

I can't believe there's only a few days left of the Olympics, it has gone so quickly! I've been totally swept up with the Olympic fever so much so I cannot actually remember the last television programme I watched that wasn't Olympics related... if only it would motivate me to actually do some exercise. haha.  I am VERY excited about the closing ceremony, I do love a bit of the Spice Girls!  After all these years I still cannot decide which Spice Girl I would want to be... who would you go for?!

I have been hunting for a neon necklace that isn't too in-your-face neon to no avail so I decided to customise my own.  I bought a cheap gem necklace from H&M and painted the stones using neon nail polish.  I am pretty happy with how it turned out!  I love wearing a splash of neon so matched my nails to the pink in my necklace, opted for a pretty blue dress from Room31 and added a bit of glamour with my favourite sequin jacket (well technically it's my only sequin jacket but it is a favourite!)



Dress: Room31*
Necklace: H&M (customised)
Jacket: Miss Selfridge

I've mentioned the great discounts Room31 offer before but I didn't mention that they also have great sales did I?!  This Vila dress is now only £20, what a bargain!  It also comes in a really pretty coral colour which I am currently resisting the temptation to snap up.  You can't really tell from my photos that the skirt is pleated and it has a funky double neckline but you can see that better over on Room31 if you want a closer look.

I'm off to zig-a-zig-ahh into my hair brush in front of the mirror ;)
