Neon + Link Up

With Spring here I'm starting to break out the neon colors!  And what better way than with a striped neon blouse. 


I found this blouse at LOFT (right now they have 30% off almost everything, including this top) last week and was drawn to it because of its color and of course the stripes!! The color online says its coral but it defiantly is more neon pink to me!  I love it paired with the bright white jeans to really help it pop.  Working neon and bright colors into your wardrobe, after a long winter of dark colors and heavy fabrics, will for sure get you noticed and help you stand out.  

I am one of those girls who loves the sun!  I love it coming in my windows at home, the clear blue sunny skies we have here in NC, the sun roof open in my car and of course sitting in the sun by the pool.  But as I've gotten older I've learned how bad being in the sun really is, from wrinkles to skin cancer.  Over the last few years I always tell myself that I'm going to stay out of the sun as much as I can and to wear sunscreen as much as possible.  It's just a habit I need to get into.  But by time summer comes and we start heading to the pool, I seem to forget all that and soak it all up from my lounge chair.  But not this year!!

I think the reason I love the sun so much is the tan I get from being in it.  So I figured that if I tried a sunless tanner and got a tan that way, I wouldn't be tempted to sit in the sun.  I didn't want a sunless tanner that turned my skin orange.  I wanted a natural looking tan.  So I did some research first.  I found Loving Tan and read how their mousses give you a natural looking tan in just a few minutes.  It has a natural olive color, not orange, all natural ingredients and an instant bronzer so you can see where you are applying it (use the mit for an easier application).  The other plus, it dries in just a couple minutes.  Right now I'm using the shade Dark, but think I will switch to Ultra Dark closer to summer.  I love this sunless tanner and will continue to use it all summer long!  You can get a free applicator mit by using code 'TWOPEASINABLOG' at checkout.  It really does make applying the lotion easier and keeps it off the palms of your hands.

  3. I want your shoes, those are so so cute!! They look like they'd be comfortable too. And that tan looks so natural! This rainy, chilly Boone weather is going to keep me from the sun for way to long, maybe I should give that a try!
