Completely intrigued by the combination of yellow & gray. Part calming and part energetic, it's always sophisticated with a certain elegance.

I just adore the yellow trench. It reminds me of the sun. I have a slight fetish with jackets and coats, they are one of the best accessories in my opinion.

And I am loving that yellow is so "in" right now. It's such a happy color!

I just love this combo. I feel I'm in the midst of these 2 colors:

grey or winter dullness & dreariness

yellow for the spring trying to burst through...

How cheerful and inspiring! I really love the yellow trench coat. Gray is one of my faves as of late and will have to agree with Coco+Kelley and All the Best that gray and yellow is a fabulous combo.

Ooooo! That yellow trench coat is amazing, I'd love that!

I remember my mom having a yellow kitchen back in the day and I loved how sunny and happy it felt!

Have a great evening!

this collection is fantastic! I have almost zero yellow in my closet but I could certainly see it working around my house. I adore the idea of sunshine yellow! A brilliant trend.

All of these images are fabulous individually - and even better together like this! I do love the gray and yellow combination - I put a wedding inspiration board together with that palette a while back.
