January Jumpstart: Week Three

January Jumpstart: Assess Your Progress...

How did you do with week two? Were you able to identify the amount of contrast you need in your outfits?

I have been practicing creating outfits with rich color and medium-high contrast. I think they have worked well, so far. In fact, I have noticed that the more contrast I create under my face, the better. Notice how the caramel sweater looks better with the ivory shirt than it does with the espresso dress?

How's it going for you?


January Jumpstart: This Week's Goal...

This week's task is to create a winter capsule designed to make the most of your coloring and level of contrast.

So as you began to plan your winter capsule wardrobe, if you noticed any gaps in colors that match your season or pieces you need to create the contrast you need in your outfits, make a list of what would fill in those gaps and begin looking for what you need. Meanwhile, create the best capsule you can with what you have.

See you next week!

Having trouble deciding which season you are? I'd be happy to help!

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints


  1. How very interesting. I've been doing the exact opposite of this, thinking low contrast was better. Thanks for the update.

    1. Hi Grammy Goodwill! Well, it depends on which autumn you are. If you are a soft autumn, then low-medium contrast is exactly what you want. But if you aren't, then that won't work right (remember my collage of me in soft autumn colors? Ick!) Do you know which autumn you are?
