HELLO, YELLOW

Yellow has never been a big part of my closet.  If a dress or a top came in yellow and another color, I’ve always opted for the latter. (I bought a yellow J.Crew silk top freshman year of college and that was only because that was the only color they had left in my size.) It’s not that I don’t like yellow. It’s just not a color that I think about very often. Until now. After seeing my friend Sarita in a stunning yellow dress at her rehearsal dinner this spring, I’ve been giving yellow some serious thought. It’s such a summer-y, happy hue and definitely deserves more consideration than I have been giving it. Since I loved my Kate Spade Saturday dress in black so much, I decided to try it out in yellow. It’s already one of my favorites – and not just because of the color. It’s the perfect fit and I love the side cut-out details, too. (I decided to give the look even more of a summer touch here with my Sara Beltrán palm-tree clutch.) Needless to say, yellow is now inching its way into my closet more and more. What are your thoughts on yellow? I know it’s Sally’s favorite. What about you?
