Deciphering Business Casual: Paddington Yellow

When I first got this yellow trench coat, I remember wondering how much use I'd really get out of a coat so bright (and if I'd end up looking comically like a Paddington bear). But I've been pleasantly surprised - this coat has been one of my go-to's every spring and has been the perfect pop of color to brighten up an otherwise neutral outfit. It also does a surprisingly good job at grounding two loud pieces (I recently paired it with this bright flora top with this bold pencil skirt for a 60's themed birthday party) and tying them together for a more cohesive look. Plus what's not to love about a coat that makes you want to do a Singing-in-the-Rain-esque dance kick every time you slip it on? 

PS - Can I just say how obsessed I am with Elie Tahari lately? I recently discovered them and they are chock full of uber cool work appropriate pieces (like this shirt I'm wearing today). You can easily pair it with dark jeans for a casual Friday like I did here or with a pencil skirt and a blazer for the more formal office.

Shirt: Elie Tahari
Jeans: Levi's 
Trench coat: Gap (old but similar here)
Sneakers: New Balance
Baseball cap: Club Monaco
Sunglasses: Dior
