GINGHAM TREND : HOW TO WEAR GINGHAM + OUTFIT INSPIRATIONS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. The gingham trend is everywhere these days, and personally, I love the trend. I find the print so adorable, so I wanted to share with you guys some adorable outfit ideas that you can recreate, that includes gingham. If you want to stay trendy this summer, then keep on reading and let's get started!

1) GRAPHIC TEE + TEXTURED GINGHAM SKIRT



Textures and prints are some of my favorite elements in an outfit. I love adding graphic tee's with a fun saying, and pairing it with a print. Adding a gingham skirt gives your outfit a unique twist. I would wear a simple t-shirt with a textured gingham dress, some mules, and a simple hand bag with some dainty jewelry and round sunglasses.

SUMMER MORNING ROUTINE I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Today, I will be sharing with you guys my summer morning routine, so let's get started.

When I wake up in the morning, I check my social media accounts, and go to my bathroom to get ready for the morning. I then go back to my room and pick out an outfit. Lately, I have been wearing graphic tee's with shorts and slides.

For breakfast, I make scrambled egg whites and garnish it with some salt and pepper, cut a peach, and throw in some potatoes as well. It is very healthy for you and extremely delicious. I typically take my laptop and go outside so I can write posts for you guys. I also like to walk downtown with my mom to grab some brunch at our favorite restaurant.

DORM ROOM : TIPS FOR ORGANIZATION + DECOR IDEAS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Today, I will be sharing with you guys who may be going to boarding school or college this year, some dorm room ideas, so let's get started.

1) WALLPAPER STICKER



If you aren't allowed to paint your walls, you can buy a wallpaper sticker. It is removable, and makes your room come to life. You can buy one with a cute, unique print as well, and remove it during the end of the year.

2) DESK GRID



Over your desk or bed, if you want to display pictures, yet you don't want to clutter your space, you can buy some push pins and hang your pictures on a cute grid. You can also paint it as well. Make sure to use command strips so you can remove it after, instead of having to pay for using a pushpin and putting a hole in your walls.

Flowy tops are another great item to pack. They typically don't take up too much space in your suitcase. They are so adorable and are another easy thing to put on. It also is great if you are going to a location with hot weather, and you want to wear something light.

Bringing hats and sunglasses are great if where you are going is extremely sunny. Sunglasses come in adorable designs.

I love to bring a cute straw hat …
