Happy New Year!
New year, fresh start and with it come all our self-promises and resolutions. I am not one keen on resolutions, three weeks in, I typically am back into my busy schedule and routine and forget all about what seemed a great idea beginning January. I do however set goals for myself, realistic ones. I do this every year and I do achieve most of them. One of my annual goals is setting the number of books I will read throughout the year, and I always increase the number by one or two books annually. To this this I add another two goals I want to work on and list these down on my mobile notes….lest I forget😉
I read an interesting article on Vogue about fashion resolutions and what the editors of the major fashion magazines vouched to stick to in 2020 with respect to fashion. These varied between shopping only for what is necessary, giving out something one is in possession of when purchasing something new, buying only one or two outfits however only of good quality and the list goes on. I never set myself any fashion resolutions…but after reading this I thought, I should add a goal to my list. So I thought… what is good to do and will also work? I decided to set a monthly budget I intend spending on my clothes, shoes and make-up. This gives me the freedom (to my mind) to shop for anything I want but within a monthly budget I set… let’s see how this goes…🙄 yikes…will I manage this you think? 😉
Always ask yourself these questions before you actually purchase an item of clothing:
- How many times will I realistically wear this?
- Can I mix and match it with different outfits?
- Does the price make sense for this piece? (If spending a substantial amount, is it a classic you will make use of or something which will be out of fashion in a couple of months?)
The struggle I will find with this goal is when it comes to shoes… I find it hard to resist when I see a pair I fall in love with, which is quite often…😂
So ladies let me know what fashion resolutions you will set? Let me know in the comments 🙂
I have some ideas for my 2020 blog posts, let me know of any particular ones you would like me to write about.
Cheers and all the best
