This spring/summer season is all about being bold and getting out of your comfort zone, so here I am, being bold and in yellow! A mustard yellow t-shirt, to be exact. I think a safe way to try yellow is going with either a mustard shade or a pastel shade--and definitely stay away from neon. I kept my overall outfit super basic (I mean, what do you expect?) and let the t-shirt be the shining star. My white Adidas sneakers really keep the look fresh and light. I find that the best trick to avoid looking like a bumblebee is to wear a white or nude shoe, as opposed to black.
Yellow is not a color I particularly hate; it's just not a color I ever thought I could incorporate into my style, which is pretty basic and neutral. But one day I really needed some color in my wardrobe--all the black was well, depressing me. Then I ended up with this mustard yellow t-shirt that a lot people on Instagram thought was an orange-sherbert color. Maybe my eyes are different than yours? Or my monitor's color needs calibrated? (I just calibrated it after realizing this, so that was fun.) I think the beauty in color and sight in general is that everyone interprets colors differently. How cool is that if you think of it in the grand scheme of things? I could get lost in this thought.
It's safe to say that I don't plan on going out and buying more garments that have the potential to make me look and feel like a bumblebee, but this basic tee makes me feel happy whenever I wear it. When it's gloomy out or if I'm feeling a little down, it's nice to know I can turn to a piece of clothing that adds a little joy in my life.
How do you feel about the color yellow and better yet--wearing it? Is there one piece of clothing that you can always turn to when you're feeling a little low that brightens your mood?
