Tuesday's Top 5

I am totally DIGGING the color yellow right now. Like, you show me something yellow and I HAVE to have it. It started when we were in Oslo this summer and I picked up these CUTE yellow coat hooks (which don't look like coat hooks at all, but that's not the point). I had big plans for redoing our basement/my office using the yellow coat hooks for inspiration. That hasn't happened yet, but my yellow obsession continues. (By the way, I think the yellow trend generally started back with Michelle Obama's inaugural dress in 2009, and we're about to get going on a new presidential election cycle, so you would think it would have passed by now, but I'm still all over the yellow and I don't think I'm the only one). What does this have to do with Tuesday's Top 5 anyway? Well how about...

The Top 5 Reasons to Dig the Color Yellow

5. Yellow is happy. Sunshine, warmth, smiley faces, lemonade. Yellow is such a happy color.

4. Yellow is a primary color. That means, of course, that given at least one other primary color, you can combine the two to make something else. How clever of you, yellow.

3. Yellow goes with everything. Grey, brown, black, tan, green, red. Yellow is tip top on the versatile scale.

2. Yellow is seasonless. Bright crisp yellow for summer, full warm yellow for fall, gold for winter, muted soft yellow for spring. It's an all year kind of color.

1. Almost no one looks good in yellow. Okay, you would think this would be a reason NOT to dig yellow, but really it's a good thing. If you can find the exact one shade of yellow that looks perfect on you, it will be a total statement piece because NO ONE else will be able to pull it off. (By the way, I'm still looking).

Have you found your yellow?

That too. PLUS one of my very favorite Photoshop actions is called Mello Yellow. The obsession continues.
