The Australian Open wraps up in the wee hours of tomorrow morning. Whoever ends up taking the tournament (please be Andy Murray, please be Andy Murray), I think one of the lasting legacies this year will be not a particular match or player, but rather, a color.
Yellow. I don't know exactly how it happened, but it seems that all of the sportswear labels decided that 2013 is going to be the year of yellow, and they paraded out their army of sponsored athletes to enforce this mandate. I don't want to violate any photo rules, so if you want to see some of the collections of yellow on the courts, check out this USA Today gallery. As for me, yellow is a color that I like, but only in certain shades. I like sunshine, I don't like Grey Poupon (unless it's in my Brussels sprouts). Bright, happy yellow is my tone of choice, as a cheery pop of color.
I got this thermal top at Target the other day on clearance, warm and fun:

Of course, there are yellow-inspired patterns as well for all of your styling needs:

We all live in a yellow submarine! This is so cute.

These are so pretty. I think it would be nice to maybe have a bouquet on my desk, bring a little color without having to worry about who is going to water them over long weekends.
And then, there's the yarn...so many possibilities, but here are a few:
