3 WIW's - Pleats, lace, tie dye, neon etc etc etc :) (pic heavy)

Heeeelllllllllooooooo! So two weeks ago i was in bed for 7days with strep throat. :( It was awful. I generally have to be extra careful when i get sick like that because it likes to stir up my asthma which has resulted in middle-of-the-night ER trips that i really like to avoid. But luckily that didn't happen and i feel much better now! I spent last week kind of catching up with life and now i believe i have accomplished that and can come back on here to play!

So without further ado....

Pics 1-4: Worn to work. Pretty simple but i love the dark, romantic feel of the outfit. I can see myself wearing this a lot early fall as well.

5-8: I have been waiting for this Vince Camuto mesh skirt to go on sale for FOR-EV-ER and then i randomly came across it at Nordstrom Rack (while it was still full price on their website)! Hooray! I love that it's not just a plain black skirt but another way to add texture into my wardrobe and the perfect length (to me) to wear to work and out for fun.

9-12: Worn today for errand running. It was only 64 this morning so i got another chance to wear my neon jacket. I haven't worn a plain white t in forever and it was boring me to death so i was like, "what goes with neon? More neon!" and threw on earrings and a necklace in another neon shade. No regrets!!!

Thanks for reading if you did. If you didn't that's cool too. All comments are welcome as always! I look forward to seeing all of your looks and catching up on what i missed!

    So glad you're feeling better Nicole - strep can really knock you on your butt!

    Of course, your outfits are fantastic! I'm dying over #9 - you rock that hot pink jacket so incredibly well and I love the neon jewelry with it. Gorgeous!

    Glad to hear you are feeling better and that no late night ER visits were incurred! You are looking fab and adorable as ever Nicole ^^ I just love the whole lot. The dark romance of the first outfit is perfect for fall, I really like the lace erm print? of that top. The second outfit has great moody colors, and I think I have that skirt (or one that's awfully similar!) so thanks for the reminder! I haven't worn mine yet, but bought it last year at NAS (it's hiding in my seasonal closet, I forgot to pull it out for summer!). LOVE how it looks with the flowy tie-dye top. And you know the last outfit is my fave, can't go wrong with an extra dose of neon! I think the white tee and purse are just perfect here, and the nude/brown sandals are a great softening touch to let that neon shiiiiine.

    It's good to see you back and feeling better! You look adorable in everything. The colors you have used in #5-8 are especially inspiring to me.

    Glad you are feeling better - I have mutant tonsils that get really aggravated by throat infections, so I'm cringing for you retroactively.

    I really love #9 and that fab pink jacket - the neon on neon is so cool. I always feel strange in bright white with other brights, but I think it's awesome with your coloring and the blue jeans. #1 is killer no matter what the season is - and long live The Rack and your new skirt!

    Oh noes! I'm so sorry you were feeling poorly. You look like you've made a complete recovery, however. An interest in fashion again is always a good sign!

    I love that lace top! So romantic. You have beautiful skin and that just sets it off. Love the blue bag with the vertical zippers, too. And neon+neon is perfect. The shoes with that outfit are ah-mazing!

    Adore the neon jacket outfit! I knew it would look fab with boyfriend-ish jeans! You styled it perfectly. Those skirts are both fab and so you. I am in love with that shade of red and have to know where you got the skirt... it's probably thrifted, right?

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    Such fab outfits Nicole. So sorry you have been unwell, but glad to see you up and about. #9 is my favourite here:) I love the colors, everything! The handbag, the sunglasses.. just totally fab.

  • Jaime replied 11 years ago

    You have a fabulous sense of style and manage to take all sorts of interesting pieces and know just what to do with them. I really like the blue shirt you wore with your new black skirt and always love the pink jacket on you but it is really how you put it all together that I admire.

    Una - nope! You're in luck! http://www.forever21.com/Produ.....oduct_feed

    Thanks ladies! I love how everyone has different favorites! :)

  • Angie replied 11 years ago

    Oh no! Glad that you are on the mend!

    I really love outfit #5! It's just so "Nicole" and makes me smile :)

    Loving #9 too! (although I desperately want to roll down your jeans). That neon jacket is so fab I can't stand it!

  • sarah replied 11 years ago

    Nicole, you just have amazing style - I love the colors, the proportions, everything!

  • Kiwichik replied 11 years ago

    Welcome back to the land of the living. Love your outfits but I think what I like the most are the details The jewellery , the unexpected bright colours, the nails and I especially like the different angles you use in your photos.

  • deedee1221 replied 11 years ago

    omg i love each and every shot

  • Meredith1953 replied 11 years ago

    A great collections of outfits! You have a real gift for combining colors. All those shades of blue in outfit 5 just are so gorgeous but of course I totally love all the neon in 9-12!

  • Heather replied 11 years ago

    Nicole, you are EXACTLY right. Neon always goes with more neon. You look incredible!

  • Ornella replied 11 years ago

    I'm glad you are feeling better Nicole.

    These looks are a.m.a.z.i.n.g and inspiring, as are you Nicole. I think you could take a potato sack and style it to scream with character and creativity.

    It's great you found the skirt you wanted. You know... good things come to those who wait :-)

  • ManidipaM replied 11 years ago

    Relieved to hear you're on the mend! Does NOT sound like fun...

    What Shevia said! I love how much detailing each of your outfits always incorporates, right down to hair and nails.

    My favourites are the first from the back --- that daintily feminine scooped back neckline with the impish combination is fabulous! --- and the last from the front (neon on neon rules!) Stellar outfits as always, Nicole!

  • CocoLion replied 11 years ago

    I love the blues outfit (the second outfit), with turquoise and cobalt. I wouldn't think to combine those but grounded in black they work really well. Making mental note to copy this color combo. And the Vince Camuto skirt flows beautifully! Lucky you for having a Rack to find treasures in.

    The other two outfits are of course completely creative and attractive. You are so good at this. The jeans outfit is something I would wear in a modified version (um, maybe a neon belt is as far as I would go, or a neon cami hiding under the tee, lol).

    Good to hear you are past the sickness.

  • Mona replied 11 years ago

    Nicole, the neon jacket and the necklace against white tee are a combination made in heaven. I love everything about this outfit.
