Little Miss Sunshine

It's amazing the way color can affect one and one's mood. I don't know of anyone whose mood doesn't cheer just a little bit when seeing the color yellow. Unless it's sort of a murky, brownish yellow. That type of yellow is usually associated with sickness, decay, pollution and other unsavory things. T.S. Eliot was fond of using the color yellow in his poems, taken in the later sense of what I just described. Take for example, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock":

"The yellow fog that rubs its back upon the window-panes,        
The yellow smoke that rubs its muzzle on the window-panes"

Well, this isn't that kind of "depressing" yellow. Today I threw on the J. Crew no. 2 pencil skirt in abstract floral and a plain white T. The combination needed an extra "kick" so I added the J. Crew Jackie cardigan in this bright yellow color. The addition of the crystal droplets necklace was the final, finishing touch to everything. Despite the hectic workday, I felt like "Little Miss Sunshine" all day long.

Do you have any particular color which dramatically enhances your mood? (Or perhaps puts you in a fowl mood?)
