Ever since I posted a velojoy street scene photo of a city cyclist riding a bright orange bicycle accessorized with glossy orange panniers, this color has been on my mind. I’m hardly alone: The sunny hue is one of the hottest fashion trends for summer.

Someone must have been reading my mind, because a sweet animation that cleverly captures the carefree fun of summer riding, Orange, from Language Department and Meghan Eplett for Kate Spade, recently landed in my inbox and made me smile.
