Inspiration: Tennis Ball Yellow
I've been really obsessing over bright, acid yellow– and its sister hues, neon yellow and lemon yellow– lately.
It's playing a feature part in my work wardrobe, where I've been experimenting with a limited palette, both for convenience and as a creative exercise.
- Black & white print pareo, worn as scarf, from a New Orleans tourist shop 10 years ago. Similar from Lemlem or Eileen Fisher or Mela Artisans.
- Black tuxedo-style vest, Target, Fall 2014. Similar from Eileen Fisher.
- Black & white striped long sleeved tee, from a closeout store. Similar from People Tree.
- Neon yellow silicone men's watch, Target clearance, Spring 2015. Similar from ASOS.
It feels sporty and energizing, and adds a little something kicky to black, white, and gray, my uniform of choice. Tennis ball yellow without the sweating and running is really my speed.
This week I had the thought, how are tennis balls made, anyway?! Here's a mesmerizing video from Penn Tennis Balls to answer that question.
