2012′s Style Resolutions

It’s 2012! Most people have their resolutions at the start of the year, whether they stick to them or not, and I do as well. Next to my personal ones (work out more, save more money, cook more often, finish that thesis in time, etc.) I have a few Style Resolutions, things I want to do or wear in 2012 and making myself stick to them by making them resolutions. Here they are.

Wear more heels.
I don’t wear much heels. I do own a few pair, but I avoid them because I just can’t get used to walking on heels. My feet start killing me after about 10 minutes. But since I got myself some IM boots last year, and these Zara beauties, and because heels just make any girl look a little better, I’m going to try to wear more heels. Not just in outfitposts, but in real life as well. I’ve been missing out on too much shoes in my life, since I didn’t get them because of the high heels. Bare with me, because I’m not going to work on these 11,5 cm babies (too much walking involved), but I’m forcing myself to party, go out, have dinner and such on heels. Wish me luck.
Buy the perfect, timeless black bag.
I have quite a few bags. Mostly small, some big, from clutches to satchels to shoppers.. But I lack that perfect, timeless black bag that I can wear everyday, goes with every outfit, and is big enough for me to carry all my stuff around. Ideally, this would be the Alexander Wang Diego Bucket Bag, preferably in black suede, but I’m not sure if this will be happening (the ‘saving money’ resolution kind of blocks this one) but I’m sure there’s another option out there, I just have to look further. This by the way is also the reason that you see me posing without bag often. Because I don’t like the bag I’m wearing enough to appear on a photo. See my urge?
Try to wear a dress.
I don’t think you guys have seen me in a dress yet. I don’t think so, because I don’t wear dresses. Or at least hardly ever. I have a few, but somehow wearing them makes me feel more girly than I really am. And more importantly, pulling a pair of jeans and a jumper out of my closet is just much easier and goes better with my shoe closet that doesn’t involve many dress-matching shoes. But in 2012, I’m going to try to reconnect with my inner girl, and try wearing a dress every now and then. This one I can’t promise to stick to, because if I don’t feel comfortable in something, I just don’t wear it. Period. But the least I can do is try, instead of ignoring all my dresses as I did in 2011. To be continued..
Wear more color, preferably pastels.
2012 is the year to pop, hear my words. OK, I understand if you don’t believe me since I mostly only wear black, white, grey, denim blue and a bit of burgundy. These not-really-colors just appeal most to me, can be combined together at all times and work for me. But if you never try anything, nothing will ever happen. So I’m climbing out of my black and grey cave this spring, and will wear some color. No popping pink though, pastels are the color to go for this year. Which is fine with me, since that’s less of a rigorous transition from non-color. I’m going mint all the way. Watch me.
Start a ‘Shop My Closet’
It’s been on my To do-list for 2 months now, but next year I’m really starting a ‘Shop my Closet‘ section on my blog. My closet is becoming wayyy too small for the stuff I’m trying to fit in there, but I reckon about 40% of it I don’t even wear. It’s good stuff though, but I just have too much and tend to go for a few favorites every time. So I’m getting rid of the items I’m not wearing (anymore or at all) and selling them for very low prices to.. you? Keep an eye on my blog for this can happen any moment!
Get 40.000 Facebook Likes.
Ok, so that might not happen. And it’s not really a style resolution. I guess I’m still going with my blog as it rolls, and I don’t really focus on my amount of followers because I like to focus on blogging. I love what I’m doing, and if anyone likes it, than that’s a bonus. But of course it’s always a great compliment to see my blog growing, soooo..

    I didnt think about anything style wise… but I do have a lot of 2012 resolutions :p I take it more like a to-do list to do instead of a daily one, just one that I have a year to acomplish so it's not really big things but stuff that never gets done otherwise…
    PS: lets have a heels party!!

    Gelukkig Nieuwjaar en heel veel succes met je blog in 2012! Xx

  11. Rianne Says:

    Uitgaan met heels is altijd een goede oefening vanwege het dansen en zodra je een aantal glazen alcohol op hebt, voel je de pijn minder. Leuke post!
