"She's Blinded Me With Science" - Thomas Dolby

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! 
Skirt: Loft, $3.50, Blazer: Part of $40 suit from NY&Co, Shirt: NY&Co, $8, Sweater Vest: Target, $3.75, Pumps: Famous Footwear
