Mellow Yellow

January, typically a bleak grey month in the Northeast, is a time to get back to work, hit the gym, eat comforting foods, bundle up, and get much-needed Vitamin D. If I could get my daily dose of sun, I would head to Australia for a month, and drink that sunshine. Or head out west, where it may not be warm, but the sun is always shining, and skiing on fresh snow and the occasional dog pee just might count as a daily dose of D. Just kidding.

Not to be confused with neon highlighter yellow, which I am calling over and done, this burst of sunny yellow is meant to soothe and offer a sharp contrast to the grays, whites, and blacks infiltrating your wardrobe right now. I get it, wearing all black is easy, but I can really appreciate the color motivating this post: I like lemons, I like bananas, I like the sun.

Fashion should be about how you’re feeling at that particular moment and expressing yourself. If you’re feeling blah, this is the perfect antidote. Wearing what you’re really into has a positive psychological effect and #winning never goes out of style. A bit bold? I love the combo of black and yellow..”you know what it is black and yellow…” It’s bumble-bee fierce, a word that I wish would go away in 2013. BTW, most everything below is On Sale— get it while it’s hot!
