I am a "spring" and find it hard to find clothes in the "right" colours...

Just wondered whether anyone else has noticed this...

I have never had my "colours done" but I know from experience that I am a "spring". I do wear colours that are probably not best for me, but as I get older (in my 30s, so not ancient) I am finding that it does make a huge difference to the way I look if I wear colours that actually suit me.

But I find it quite hard to find the right colours. For example, yesterday I really wanted to get a lovely Uniqlo jumper or cardigan, but after much deliberation, realised that none of the colours (except perhaps grey) would suit me. I need slightly muted colours and it seems that most shops have really bright colours - so very bright (or pale) pinks, purples, greens, etc. - none of which suit me.

Anyone else noticed this??

I used to think I was a spring
turns out I am a muted summer.

get yourself done

No, I am definitely a spring...

I thought that Spring was "bright and clear"?

I'm sure it was when I was done but I could be wrong...

I am a spring, and find it easiest to shop when the spring ranges are in the shops - funnily enough. I have also learnt to buy something when I see it - which will result in the odd splurge when the colours are good for me, but months without a purchase (when everything's black and red for Christmas).
