Several days ago I was at the park and saw a woman wearing black leggings and a navy sweater. I can't describe how gorgeous that color combination looked on her. She actually seemed to "shine." I happened to glance down at what I was wearing and realized "OMG, I'm wearing black leggings and a navy tee shirt."

My wardrobe is full of legacy black .... FULL. I started buying navy about two years ago. I was timid about mixing the two and thought I would just build capsule around two separate, but unique neutral colors. YLF Forum members encouraged me to mix the two and offered suggestions as to how to build my confidence.

I'm there! I am going out today proudly wearing dark blue jeans, black tee shirt, and navy cardigan. I shine! This color combination is going to be my signature in 2018.

Shining Sterling.
