15 cute yellow items for putting us in a springtime mood


miller cardi

Yellow is around a lot this season, and this pleases me, as it is such a happy, poppy color and it doesn’t have to be hard to wear—if it washes you out, just remember: bold lip. This cardigan looks like a perfect layer for when it gets warmer out, if that ever happens.

chance blouse

And I really want this blouse, which I’d probably wear with grey jeans.

yellow dress1

A flirty little sundress for summer.

floral dress

A really elegant, feminine dress with a nice graphic print.

topshop sweater

This ribbed V-neck sweater looks like a perfect Saturday afternoon option.

yellow shirt

This button-down is by Frank & Eileen, who make some of my favorite button-downs.


ag jeans

Yellow jeans could be tricky if they were too bright, but these are nice and subdued.

yellow crewneck

A crewneck from Vince that is, happily, marked down.

cambre jacket

I am crazy for this Nili Lotan jacket, which I already own in army green. But this particular yellow is so good I want it all over again.

yellow dress

Flirty sundress for summer #2.

chinti sweater

Love the increasing width of the stripes on this sweater.

martin sweater

And the neckline on this sweater is so good.

yellow raincoat

Of course I had to include this classic rain jacket from Petit Bateau.

ganni coat

Nobody’s really shopping for coats right now so much, but this was too good not to include.

silk shirt

A silk shirt with an excellent floral print.


And here is a post on red clothes I like.

This product is a miracle


pedi perfect

I read about the Amope Pedi Perfect foot file on my friend Andrea’s blog, I Want To Be Her, a couple of weeks ago, and because it was recommended by a beauty editor I respect—and because my callous situation is quite dire—I ordered it immediately. And reader, I am here to tell you that if, like me, you’ve tried other solutions—scrubs, files, pedicures—and found the results wanting, you might want to give this a shot. It removes callous so fast and so well that you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

This amazing green bag is from Roztayger, a luxe online shop I like a lot for its dreamy accessories.

And why not a purple crossbody bag?

Such a lovely blue, and a great shape.

Yellow bags are just good fun, and I like the sporty striped strap here.

orange hobo

A really well-priced faux leather option.

red bag

I like the clean lines on this one, and the deep tomato red.

antonello bag

Antonello bags are so fabulously happy, and the color combo here is quite winning.

cambridge bag

This satchel is kind of schoolgirl chic, if that’s a thing.

Such a rich blue and nice, clean shape on this Shinola bag.

And I like the slouchiness of this tote.

Every year, Clare V makes this basket bag in a different color and once again I am sorely tempted—the red and blue strap is so cool and unexpected with the yellow.

A very loud beaded clutch I couldn’t resist including.

mini sac tote

I could see making this red option my everyday bag.
