I had a difficult time coming up with what I wanted to do for "She's Blind Me With Science," until I talked to my sister last night. I was thinking maybe a school girl cerebral look, but then Hillary suggested adding neon green to any outfit. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted a neon to compliment a prep school look to bring in the 80's. I also remembered my favorite science teacher, who made learning so much fun by always adding a cool experiment to compliment what we'd learned that week. I always looked forward to that class as I did things like make ice cream in a coffee can learning about salt and freezing properties, I walked on a bed of glass, build an egg-drop machine, and we tie-dyed. My teacher wore a tie-dyed lab coat with all kinds of neon colors. So to honor one of the first people who really made me love school and learning, I knew neon was a must!
Prep school blazer, shirt, and sweater vest plus a pop of neon on a skirt seemed to fit the bill!
