Don’t let my happy hue fool you. It’s simply a desperate attempt to channel spring. It’s still pretty cold here in the Midwest but putting on a little yellow at least made me feel like a new sunnier season is right around the corner.

The coloration of my blazer is a mellower version of one of Pantone’s top spring colors – buttercup yellow. It’s a color you’ll likely see a lot of come spring thanks to the many designers who’ve created some amazing pieces to showcase this sunny shade.

Some of my favorites this season include –

these exquisite dresses from Lela Rose , Roberto Cavalli and Rebecca Taylor;

these shoes from Manolo Blahnik;

this skirt from Alice + Olivia;

these wide-leg pants from Proenza Schouler

and this fun handbag from Dolce and Gabbana.

It’s not a color I wear often but I’ve already ordered one of the dresses mentioned above because it feels right on point at the moment. It’s bright and cheerful, a color that offers up a little shot of sunshine and the promise of spring.
