As children, we are naturally drawn to the colours that are most like us. If you put a handful of colours in front of a young child and ask them to choose their favourites, they will pull the colours that coincide with their personal colour palette.
You can use this to help you decide if a colour palette is for you, too. Just ask yourself, am I naturally drawn to the colours in this palette? Do I decorate my home with them? Are my Pinterest boards filled with them?
When you give the traits and colours below a gander, see if you connect with them. If you do, the colours in the summer colour palette might suit you perfectly.

The easiest time for you to shop:
Spring and summer feel like the easiest times for you to find the lighter end of your favourite colours in store, although you can find the darker colours readily throughout the entire year. When bright colours are in style, you find it more difficult to find clothes you like.

Women you may connect with:
- Sarah Jessica Parker
- Michelle Pfeiffer
- Ellen Pompeo
