SUMMER ROAD TRIP : ESSENTIALS + OUTFIT IDEAS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. If you haven't started your summer vacation already, it is around the corner for most of us and I am seriously so excited. I love road trips because they are less expensive versus having to pay for a plane, car rides, hotel, etc.



Road trips are great to go on with friends. You can drive around and visit cute food stands, small boutiques, and restaurants near where you live. If you plan on going on a road trip, then keep on reading and let's get started.

1) OUTFIT



•White off-the-shoulder top
•Denim skirt
•Brown bag



•Bell sleeve white and red top
•Color blocked denim skirt

2) ESSENTIALS

COFFEE:



You guys know how much I love my ice soy lattes. Whenever I go anywhere, I always have to either make coffee myself with my Keurig or go to Starbucks. This helps me wake up in the morning and keeps me energized.

SNACKS:

GRADUATION LOOKBOOK : OUTFIT, HAIR, AND MAKEUP IDEAS : I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. If you are still in school, it is graduation season. I know that we are all probably anxious for summer to come, but it is also a bitter sweet moment to leave school. I thought that I would give you guys some ideas on what to wear and how to do your makeup and hair for graduation, so let's get started.

1) OUTFIT



What I love about this dress is that it takes the stereotypical white dress (I find that a lot of people wear plain white dresses for graduation) and mixes it with a unique floral design for spring/summer. I love the simple vibe that it gives off. I would wear this with a nude block heel. I find that block heels are much more comfortable to wear, versus a pointy, thin heel, and trust me, your feet will thank you later.

DESIGNER FASHION WISHLIST I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Today, I will be showing you guys what is on my fashion wishlist. Hopefully you guys can get some ideas on what to ask for your birthday, holidays, graduation, etc., so let's get started.

1) CHLOÉ FAYE BAG



I talked about the Chloé Faye Bag in one of my recent posts, where I talk about what purses to invest in, which will be linked down below. It has an accordion inside and is so adorable for spring and summer. It is the perfect size, and great for those who like bags with straps as well. The big, bold statement piece about this purse is probably the chain that attaches from the flap, which I think is so unique.

1) UNIQUE BATHROOM TILES



Unique bathroom tiles are great if you want to add a pattern to your space that you are working with. With some big plants and soft wood accents, it can really bring some light to your bathroom.

2) GOLD ACCENTS



Gold accents can look great against dark, earthy tones. Incorporating gold accents can be helpful for handles in your bathroom or doorknobs, as well as clear and gold desk accessories.

3) VELVET FURNITURE



I love velvet furniture. I think they are so chic and amazing for any desk or vanity. They are so comfortable and come in a variety of colors. For example, if you want to go for a similar vibe like the picture, I would keep the mirrored desk for a vanity and add some black and white…

WHAT TO PACK ON : SPRING/SUMMER VACATIONS - ADDING TRENDS, COLOR, AND MORE I NEON DOTS

Fun colors, such as dark yellows and sky blues can make your outfit pop. You can also pair them with basic staple pieces, such as a black bag or a straw hat.

2) WRAP DRESSES



I have seen wrap dresses everywhere lately and I think they are the cutest trend. With some brown sandals or wedges and a few rings, it can be extremely lightweight to pack and great to wear for places with hot weather.

3 WAYS TO STYLE A GUCCI BELT I NEON DOTS

This striped button down shirt with a denim skirt is so cute. I would recommend this outfit to the minimalists out there. The off the shoulder button down shirt trend has been around lately, and I do love denim. Mixing them together makes the perfect outfit.

3 SPRING FASHION TRENDS TO TRY OUT I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I am personally one to catch up on fashion trends, and there are a few that I have been obsessed with lately, so I thought I would share them with you guys, so let's get started.

1) SCARFS ON BAGS



If you have a solid colored bag that you use for spring, then I would definitely recommend adding a small silk scarf with a fun pattern to your handle, or a printed handkerchief. It adds a fun statement to your bag without drawing too much attention from your outfit.

2) BANDANAS



I love to wear bandanas around my neck because it gives a fun twist to a casual outfit. You can find one at Nordstrom in the BP section or in any other store.

TIP - Roll your bandana until it becomes a long shape to achieve a more minimalistic look.

Wearing bandanas around the neck would look great with an all white outfit or an all denim look as well. For example, I would pair a red bandana with a white button down shirt, green jeans, and some black boots.
