I’m a huge fan of converging colors and trends from different seasons, i.e., adding pops of bright color to winter neutrals.  And a few months go, Bobbi Brown released the Spring 2012 Neons and Nudes collection, and I swooned over the brights and neutrals.

The neon and nude trend of this past Fall + Winter – the nude color a nod to the cooler weather – but the hot pink (or any neon solid, really) draws us right into Spring.

I put together this little inspiration board over on Glitter Weddings, but the images are too pretty not to share here.

I am a color fiend (though you wouldn’t know it from my black/white/gray/sequined wardrobe), and these images have me grinning from ear to ear – all of the colors are bright, but not too bright, and all feel inspired by nature.

Painted branches — added to the DIY list.

These doors make me want to break out a stencil and some highlighter-colored paints.  I must be on some kind of neon kick.  I wonder if the hubby would notice a neon yellow pantry door.

Bobbi Brown: Neons & Nudes

I’m a pale face.  And not in the pretty alabaster-skin kind of way.  Just plain old pale.  So pops of color paired with soft nudes really appeals to me and my pasty, pasty skin.  Plus, Bobbi Brown’s latest Neons & Nudes advertisements are totally sweet.

From Bobbi Brown:

“The most modern way to wear bright color is as an accent on an otherwise neutral face.” — Bobbi Brown

The Neons & Nudes Collection features a unique pairing of bright, neon colors that are balanced by soft nudes and neutrals. Pair a soft, nude eye with a neon lip or a bright eye with a nude lip depending on your mood.

I’ve never been very good at matchy-matchy.  I always wear navy and black, cheetah flats with floral rompers, and colored tights with everything.  So today’s mini lesson is about manis and pedis … they don’t have to match.  Promise.

Go for hues that complement each other, match your outfit instead, choose a color that corresponds with the glitter on your toes.  It’s summer – have fun.
