In case you are just arriving on the scene here, I recently color analyzed myself as a soft autumn. I have a certified color analyst friend, Lora Alexander from Pretty Your World, who is either going to confirm that for me or tell me I am a smidge off and am actually a warm autumn.
I did a lipstick test as a last-step to try to confirm it & the best lip colors were soft autumn & warm/true autumn, so it could go either way. But because I am a dressing your truth type two, I have a feeling that soft autumn will win out.
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: Lora is also going to train and certify me to be a color analyst, too! My goal is to get really good at helping women of color discern their season because there isn't a whole lot of information available out there about seasonal color analysis for women of color to help us.
Soft Autumn Challenge...
But meanwhile, I have just started a 30-day soft autumn color analysis challenge. I have segregated my closet by type.
Everything I am wearing for this seasonal color analysis challenge fits the soft autumn palette and works for me as a dressing your truth type two. Everything else has been relocated to a different place in my closet.
I'm having a blast, so far! Although some days I can tell I don't have it quite right, that's why creating a challenge for myself is such a good idea. Gives me lots of practice!
My goals for my outfits during this challenge...
(1) Soft and muted ~ and the question is always, "is it soft enough?" or "is it muted enough?"
(2) A mixture of warm and cool to match my coloring ~ sometimes this one is a challenge, as well.
Today's Soft Autumn Outfit...
I added a scarf to try to cool it off and soften it a smidge, but did not really like it. What do you think?
I love the richness of the ivory shirt but it may be just a bit too rich. Might need a little of my wash-and-fade treatment :).
I am linking up today with Nina at Momma Go Round for this week's installment of Real Momma, Real Style. On Wednesday, I will link up Lindsey at the Pleated Poppy and on Friday, I will link up with Jennifer at Momma Made It Look Easy.
