This spring I’m adding some bright colored pieces to my closet and these yellow mules would be a great start. I love the formal look of the Calvin Klein option (top) but since they’re a little out of budget for me, I’ll opt for the Topshop version (bottom) which are just as fabulous. I’d wear the Calvin Klein option with a little lace dress, and I’d wear the Topshop option with ripped skinny jeans and a white button down shirt.

Love E.C
