The Soft Autumn Seasonal Color Analysis Challenge: Day Five

Wearing Soft Autumn Colors

Soft and muted is good. Soft and muted while wearing the right soft autumn colors: priceless! :)

One thing I learned from the Dressing Your Truth program is that when I am dressing my truth, I will be more in touch with who I really am. I’ll see it every time I look in the mirror and give myself the same message about myself that others will see.

Feeling “Soft Autumn” Today

All afternoon, as things slowed down a bit, I noticed that I was feeling more like myself in today’s outfit. And happier, in general. And then I read a comment on my other blog, Dressing My Truth, and it confirmed for me that I’m on the right path, color-wise…

“I think I've said it before but I love that coral color on you. Even though I don't know you, you sent me a wonderful email offering to help me get my blog started. That makes me think I know your personality, and I think the coral color brings that out on you.”Grammy Goodwill from yesterday’s post on my other blog.

I think that is the third or fourth comment or reaction of that type and it makes me really glad I bought all those coral pieces from J.Jill!

Soft Autumn or Warm Autumn?

I heard back from Lora Alexander, of Pretty Your World, and she said that though she didn’t quite have enough good-quality, high-resolution pics to decide for sure, she was making a guess that I am a warm autumn, but wasn’t 100% sure. She suggested trying warmer colors and said that if they seemed too warm or golden, then I am a soft autumn.

Okay, works for me! What I have to get clear on is that if I am a warm autumn, it doesn’t mean more intense colors, just warmer ones. 

I did notice that when I put on my peachy lip balm, it looked a bit chalky to me, but when I added a smidge more color with my Sunset lipstick, I looked much better. Still, I suspect I am a soft autumn because when I tried the warm autumn lipstick on again, it said, “HELLO!”

Today’s Soft Autumn Outfit

I love this outfit! It makes me feel like I am wearing ice cream. At first, I tried the green tank top with a water blue cardigan from J. Jill, and it was okay, but I didn’t really like it. And boy, as soon as I tried on the coral cardi, I knew I had the outfit I wanted to wear.

Even my son got into the act today with soft autumn colors :) ...
