Mellow Yellow

Jacket - Vertigo Paris (Loehmann's), Shirt - Michael Kors, Slacks - BR, Shoes - Chinese Laundry, Bracelet - ModCloth
I told you once before that yellow, black, and white is one of my favorite color combinations, and to show you that I am a woman of my word, here it is again. I feel like yellow is one of my go-to colors when the weather is icky and gloomy and cold, and I'm feeling the need for a little flash of sunshine. Plus, it's a great way to spruce up a boring black-and-white, corporate-appropriate work outfit like I did here. It's also a lovely color to wear if you're going to be in a crowd. My boyfriend never has a problem finding me when I'm wearing this jacket. I now understand why construction signs are always yellow. Not that I look like a construction sign. Wait, do I?! Well, if I do, I hope it's a construction sign that says something like, "Caution: Cute Outfit Ahead."

Seriously though, wearing a bright color like construction-sign yellow can really turn your gloomy mood more positive...and in some cases, can even make the sun come out! If you don't believe me, look at the last photo. The sun peeked out from some clouds in the time it took me to take these photos. It's the power of fashion. Believe.
