My Style Resolutions for 2013

It’s here, the last day of 2012. Just in time for some resolutions! Of course I have my personal resolutions as well (such as work out more) but I wanted to share my style resolutions with you guys here. I had style resolutions last year (find them here) and fulfilled almost every one of them! They actually helped me since I did have my resolutions in the back of my mind and stuck to them and it turned out pretty well: I wore more heels, more color, more skirts and found the perfect black bag. But this year I have a few new ones that I actually can’t wait to stick to or fulfill!


Wear more prints. My wardrobe was always quite black/grey/white but I added quite a few touches of colors to it last year and a few prints as well, but prints are definitely the way to go in 2013 so one of my resolutions is to wear a lot of prints! So far I have just a few pieces in my closet but looking at for instance the Kenzo SS13 collection (1,3,5) and Proenza Schouler SS13 (2,4) I instantly want to go looking for bright leopard prints and photo prints. They will bring so much more fun into my wardrobe!

Go for quality, less quantity. Something that is quite obvious but that I find really hard to stick to. It’s not easy trying to save up money for a few good pieces when Zara and H&M Trend and ASOS come with such good and on trend stuff every week (!). Looking at the pieces I wore most last year though (see them here) I really plan on trying harder, because the pieces I wore most are the ones I invested in, went with everything in my closet and had something about them that didn’t make them linked to a certain season or trend. I’m wondering how I’ll do on this one, it will be quite hard but we’ll see.. If Zara could just stop having such good collections..

In line with the previous resolution, this year I want to invest in another great every day bag. I did that last year and got my Wang and I’m quite surprised it still looks as good as it does because I use it about every day. It was definitely worth getting it and I still love it but after months of the same bags (I momentarily only have 2 I like) I’m ready for some variation. My bank account is not ready yet though so this one might take a little while to live up to, but I do think it’s a resolution because it will be so worth the investment.. I love all of the above!
From left to right: Alexander Wang Rocco bag, Givenchy Antigona bag, Proenza Schouler PS11, Proenza Schouler PS1, Céline Trapeze bag.

Ok the last one is not really style related but it’s definitely a high on my list. Go to New York! I really want to go to NYC again in 2013. I’ve been there 3 times now and I can’t get enough of that city. I’m not sure if I can make it happen, but I’m definitely going to try. But looking at the 4 resolutions above maybe I should get a job next to the blog first haha..

Do you have any resolutions when it comes to style? And are there things you want to see (more or at all) on the blog in 2013? Tell me! And have a great New Years Eve! I can’t show you what I’ll wear yet because I still haven’t decided yet but if you’re curious, make sure to check my instagram (@lovelybylucy) because I’ll let you know as soon as I decide :)

    I agree and feel related to the designer investment bag resolution and I really want to get that Givenchy bag and the PS11, I am obsessed with both of them.

    Stylewise I think I want my style to be more minimalist, meaning that I want to wear more sleek tailored pieces with clear lines and look cleaner in general. I think I’ve fallen for the Céline aesthetic. x

    Two of my main resolutions are the same as yours – buy investment pieces rather than buying lots of fast fashion and to go to New York with my best friend!

    Happy new year! x

    Oh wow – #2 is something that I’m super guilty of and need to work on. These are all great resolutions though, looking forward to 2013!

    I really like this idea of a style resolution. I had in mind to change my wardrobe as my style has evolved and was actually waiting on January to start. But you are quite detailed. I would like to wear more bright colours and prints as my wardrobe is fill with black, blues, greys and reds. I would also love to go to Europe this year ( I live in Canada) at the same time South America is on my mind. So we are going to go with whatever works. As for a statement bag, I have been eyeing the Alexander Wang Rocco bag for a long time now. Happy New year Lucy and good luck with your resolution. I love your blog.

    You DO wear a lot more high heels indeed.
    I’m with you on 2 and 3, but it is hard to stick to that first one as you mentioned!
