The neon yellow shoes

It's no secret that neons are back from the 80s, but were you expecting to see everything neon, including highlighter yellow shoes ??

Even though I love the neon trend and I can wear neon jewelry (I love my Asos bracelet), a neon belt, a neon satchel or even a neon t-shirt, I think neon shoes is taking the trend too far. I saw the neon yellow Pigalles and I have to admit that they are beautiful... in a store, on the runway or in a box !  I really don't see how they can look good on a real person wearing real clothes in real life... I would feel like a cartoon character if I wore them and a cartoon character is never what you aim at when you get dressed, right ?

But if you are into neon yellow shoes you are a happy girl, the options are endless !
From top to bottom and left to right: Pigalle Christian Louboutins (not available online but if you are in Belgium they are available at SN3), Jennifer Hawkins (here), Platform and suede (topshop), Sandals (Sandro), Brian Atwood (mytheresa), Loeffler Randall (piperlime) , Rebecca Minkoof (here), Tan sandals Rebecca Minkoff (here)

How about you, are you into the neons trend ? And the highlighter yellow shoes, do you think this is taking the trend too far or not ?

Thanks for reading, looking forward to hearing what you think !

  1. Coup de coeur pour les sandales avec la fleur ;-)

  2. J'aime beaucoup l'idée des sandales jaunes fluo! autant sur un vêtement, je ne suis pas emballée (je suis plus pour le rose ^^), autant sur des sandales comme ça, j'adore!

  3. Les Céline sont magnifiques!
    Je penses que le jaune fluo doit être plus facile à porter au pieds qu'en vêtements.
    Et puis des jolies chaussures colorées c'est toujours funky, LE détail qui change tout :)

  4. Quel succès ces chaussures jaune fluo !!! Les filles, vous avez de la chance les filles, vous avez BEAUCOUP de choix cette saison :) Moi, si je devais changer d'avis ce serait pour les sandales Rebecca Minkoff nude et jaune, les plus "portables".

    @anne: c'est exactement celles-là que j'aurais choisi pour toi ;)

    @clara: je te verrais bien avec les Celine! beijocas xx

    @jenny-kate: je suis d'accord que des chaussures colorées apportent une touche funky que j'aime bien, mais le fluo ça peut faire un peu trop...

  5. J'adore la dernière paire, et tout ce jaune me fait amèrement regretter de ne pas avoir acheté l'année dernière les sandales Miu Miu, sublimes en rose Néon ou jaune Néon. Sniff, regrets...

  6. Comme je te comprends, j'ai parfois aussi pris des mauvaises décisions en ne pas achetant une pièce tout de suite pour après regretter après quand elle est sold out (comme par exemple le tee alexander wang blanc qui était dans mon shopping bag de shopbop pendant des jours et quand je me suis décidé à le commander il n'y avait plus ma taille, grrr !).
    pour les sandales jaune néon, il n'est pas trop tard, tu peux te ratrapper avec les rebecca minkoff, elles sont canon !!

  7. Dear Marta,
    I hope all is well there, lady!
    Well.... What can I say.... Emmm. No!
    Most of the time I can see even the smallest like in a trend - even though I wouldn't ever dare wearing it myself. But this time I can confess: This neon yellow doesn't look good even on hot & trending women like the ones above. The color is reminding me of acid.... Eeeuuuuhhhh.
    And I adore Celine, I really do. That being said this is absolutely no excuse for a neon yellow pair of shoes though (lol) - sorry!
    Happy Thursday, dear!!

  8. Normally not but I like the sandals. I think the sandals are fun for the summer and easier to wear/match.

  9. @sophie: hey sof, I'm with you here, no neon yellow shoes for me either :) xx

    @alyssa: good to hear from you, hope all is well :) I agree with you, the flat sandals are definitely the more wearable. see you saturday ? xx

  10. Today I've seen a pair of beautiful neon sandals at zara online!! I wouldn't mind to own a pair, it would be funny to wear them!
    Have a nice weekend!

  11. Je ne sais pas si j'arriverais à oser porter des chaussures jaune. Vraiment peur de m'en lasser. En tout cas c'est très beau mais ce n'est pas moi.

    Belle journée, bises.

  12. @clochet: I saw them too, they are fun but wearable...? Not sure ;) xx

    @margaux: d accord avec toi, belles à regarder mais impossible à porter !!

  13. Ooooo, la la. If I do neon it will definitely be in the form of something like a pair of highlighter shoes. LOVE a bit of bright but sort of cringe at the thought of wearing in as a jumper/dress/trousers. I like statements in small doses when they are as loud as neon. xx

  14. From the comments here I see that most you girls are going for the highlighter shoes, including you, dear Jen :) i ll be watching that from the other side !! xx

  15. Hi Marta,
    Bon je vote pour les Céline... mais comme les Loub's, celles-ci resteront à l'état de rêve !!!
    Merci pour ton petit mot la dernière fois =)

  16. Hey Edith, je suis contente de te voir par ici :) ecoutes, il faut bien avoir des rêves, moi c est un sac chanel :)

  17. i have some neon wedges but only the straps are neon yellow but people should be fee to wear what they want to wear it's not too far unless u come out in a full neon cat suit but to each his/her own :)

  18. You are very right, everyone should be able to wear what they want, including a full neon catsuit, right ? Personnally I m not into neon shoes as they could look cool for a while but then completely ridiculous. Thanks for passing bh and sharing your thoughts, it s always appreciated. xx

  19. it fanshion and beautiful ,make our girls like so much ,and we want to own it .and i always like the colour shoes you show .

  20. I love this color! Fab! Highlighter Yellow shoes are NOT going too far! They're right on trend and I can't wait for mine to come in the mail!
