Mellow Yellow

It’s not quite Canary, and definitely not neon, it’s also not gold or lemony. The type of yellow of which I am currently having a love affair can only be described as soft, mellow. Some would even call it chiffon yellow.

This type of slightly pastel always reminds me of spring, Easter, eggs, the sun, and joy. To be honest, I am writing this while wearing a yellow jumper. In color theory and psychology, yellow is even considered to be the color of optimism! Yellow even enhances concentration, hence its use for legal pads.
