Easter Geek Chic

Happy belated Easter, everyone!

I hope that the Easter bunny brought you lots of chocolate and treats :) like it did for me!


Yummy!

Unfortunately I had to work over the Easter weekend, but I managed to nip home for Saturday and Sunday to spend some time with the family. It was lovely; however, my parents are in the process of moving house so there's boxes everywhere! I had the task of going through some of my old stuff that had been put in the attic, and found some absolute gems in the form of 90's memorabilia!

My dear Furby:


Mary-Kate and Ashley dolls:


Yo-yos and Tamagotchi Gigapet:


I used to love these toys so much! 

Therefore, to continue with the 90's theme, I've decided to do another neon outfit post!

Following on from my previous post, regarding my 90's fever, it's still very much present. I originally posted about the 90's at the beginning of March, when I first decided to experiment with neon through my outfit's detailing. I was very cautious, as I'd never worn neon before! I was worried about being able to pull it off, as the trend tends to be a bit hit or miss.

However, I've slowly built up my confidence! I started small using neon pink in my outfit's detailing, and now I feel I can go for a full neon piece - in the form of my new yellow jumper from eBay (first written about for my Mini Milton Keynes Haul post).

This was the result:




I wanted to create a smart casual look centred around the jumper, so I decided to team a crisp, white shirt - buttoned all the way to the top - with high quality, skinny jeans. 

I then accessorised with a chunky, gold, beaded and sequin necklace, earrings and rings that originally belonged to my Grams.

I had to wear my glasses (because I'm seriously short-sighted and blind without them) so I thought I'd balance out the dark colour of my glasses, at the top of my outfit, with some black studded pumps at the bottom.


The final touch for braving the elements was my vintage black leather jacket with fur collar.


Neon Jumper - eBay
White Shirt - Topshop
Skinny Jeans - MOTO at Topshop
Studded Pumps - NEXT
Leather Jacket - Vintage

And that was my Easter Geek Chic look sorted!
