Yellow alert! I love writing about the color yellow because it is a happy, healing color. When it comes to bold colors, my favorite colors are always the brighter ones, like yellow, because they allow me to stand out in the crowd and they always seem to brighten up my days when I wear them. Whether I’m wearing a scarf or a pair of sandals, I seem to feel more confident than if I didn’t wear yellow. According to Kate Smith’s article, All About the Color Yellow, the color yellow encourages communication. So, for those of you who didn’t have a Valentine’s Day date, I suggest you try out the color yellow.

Even though I love wearing plaid all year round, this season’s Burberry scarf is simply stunning. Although San Diego is not the scarf capital of the country, I’ve seen more gals wearing scarves around town than usual. The sudden increase in the local scarf wearing population makes me think that a yellow Burberry scarf can improve a simple outfit. Spice up your jeans and cardigan with Burberry’s basic, giant lightweight scarf. Because the material is soft, you won’t feel like you need to wear a neck brace after you have worn it all night.

When you’re strutting around town, wearing pumps is always necessary. So, try strutting around town in these lemongrass suede pumps. The tall pump with white platform would look great with this season’s flowy skirt or some skinny jeans with a silk top. I love the bold yet feminine color on this shoe. I think it may overpower a dress, so I would stick with pants with this shoe. But, who knows what happens when you tap your inner creative diva.

Even Rihanna embraced the yellow nail polish trend and it looks hot. Don’t think you can’t pull it off! You don’t have to be a super trendy gal to dig this style, but it may not be appropriate for everyone’s daily work schedule. I think wearing this cool, hip shade is perfect for the weekend if you can’t enjoy it on your fingernails all week.
