Neon sweaters and a great affordable neon satchel/clutch

Lookbook Essentiel FW 20011/12
I have been obsessed with neon colors for some time (have a look at my previous neon post), but I was waiting to get closer to spring to try out this trend. That was until I found this pink sweater at Essentiel Antwerp. I have been to this shop several times this season, and I had seen their neon sweaters in the past, but for some reason I didn't really "see" them. I didn't buy this sweater but it inspired me to do this post and most importantly to start looking for serious options for a new (future) neon sweater. Even though I just bought two great sweaters on the Net-a-Porter sale, since none of them is neon and because a girl who is always as cold as me can never have too many sweaters I decided to start looking for the perfect new sweater.

This is what I found, I hope you like this selection. My favorite is Acne's mint green sweater, so fresh! What's yours?

1. Burberry Brit neon orange sweater (buy at mywardrobe here), 2. T by Alexander Wang hooded sweater (buy at Mytheresa here), 3. Acne mint green sweater (buy at Matches Fashion here), 4. Zara pink sweater (buy here), 5. Topshop pink sweater (buy here), 6. T by Alexander Wang sweater (buy at Net-e-Porter here).

And just in case you don't fall for the perfect neon sweater (or even if you do!), try the neon satchel which all the fashionistas are crazy about. If you don't know the Cambridge Satchel Company yet, you should. Specially now that they have a neon collection! Their satchels are great quality, have the perfect colors and can be worn as a shoulder bag or a clutch, can it get better? Yes, they are surprisingly affordable, they come in different sizes (11'', 13'', 14'' and 15'') and prices range from £98 to £108. Buy them here.
My favorite is the yellow one but I have seen it so many times that I think I will fall for the pink... How about you?
