2015 Style Resolutions

I can't believe it's 2015 already! 2014 went by in a flash. I recently saw a post on the Free People blog of their stylist's Style Resolutions for 2015 and thought I would write one of my own. I made a lot of headway in 2014 and I am super proud of my progress- but there is still a long way to go!

Things I am Proud of from 2014:
  • I donated, sold & tossed lots of clothing that didn't fit with my current style
  • During my shopping trips I became much more mindful and focused on what garments would work with my wardrobe, and which would not. This helped me not bring home many garments that would have ended up being donated in the future.
  • My style became very clearly defined

Style Resolutions for 2015:

stop procrastinating on those unworn garments!I resolve to take these pieces out of my wardrobe and attempt to mix them into at least 2-3 different outfits. If I can't do it, or I just don't like the item anymore, then it's gone!

remix my current wardrobe instead of purchasing new items to quell boredomIt's pretty normal for people to get bored with their clothing; and I remember well a few years ago how I would play around with my wardrobe, coming up with new outfits. This was especially handy since I didn't have as much money back then to purchase new items. And since this year I will be moving out on my own, downgrading the amount of new purchases I make will be very important!

to only buy/keep pieces that I really love-buy less, but better!
This one is one of the toughest resolutions to keep! Sometimes it's too easy to purchase something on impulse, just because it seems fun. I want my closet to be comprised of pieces I really love!

explore more second hand stores
Thrift shopping used to be a VERY regular occurrence for me

try out a few new hairstyles- fishtail braids & up-dos
I finally have the long hair I've been pining after for years- it's time to have fun with it and try some new things!
