Traffic Stop (+ GIVEAWAY)

 Essie nail polish in “go ginza” // MAC lipstick in “pink nouveau”

I can guarantee that you will stop some traffic in this Petal Boutique neon dress. The pictures don’t even do it justice – it’s very neon in person! I got quite a few stares while taking these photos on the street… but, no worries! I absolutely love the neon trend, especially when paired with nude heels and a big glam necklace. And speaking of glam necklaces, everyone needs this gardenia necklace from Accessory Mercado in their life. The larger diamond part is removable, so you can easily transform the necklace into a more subtle piece of jewelry if you wish.

And today, Accessory Mercado is giving away $100 in jewelry to one lucky reader!

To enter the $100 giveaway, complete the following two steps:
1. Follow Southern Curls & Pearls on bloglovin here.
2. Visit Accessory Mercado’s website and leave me a comment, telling me your favorite item from their store.

Easy peasy! Giveaway will end April 16th at noon. Good luck, loves!!
