Hey there, Two Thousand Sixteen!
We are two months into the year now, which means we are two months closer to the start of fall! (Haha! Just kidding. Not really, I’m pretty jazzed that we’re getting closer to starting this cold weather all over again ;)
I want to preface my next question with the fact that this is a judgment-free zone. So if you don’t have an answer or your answer isn’t what you think it should be, know that we’ll shun you forever. No, but we will offer a high-five and say you’ve still got time to start…
How are your goals coming for the year?
Can you remember what they are?
I’ll check in with mine, then you share yours!
The style goals I set for myself started with buying more tunics and dresses. I’ve bought 4 tunics since the year started. They’re the perfect thing to wear when I need to move freely, look good and feel comfortable (especially with a 7 month old).
My next goal was to pair down my closet to only pieces that I wear. I’d say I’m doing only so so with this goal.
I did a big closet clean out at the beginning of January and pulled out a lot – like say SIX POUNDS of jewelry! And just the other day when I bought a pair of shoes (Belk at West Town Mall is having an ah-mazing shoe sale) I got rid of a pair of shoes I don’t wear very often. I’d like to keep that rotation going.
Unfortunately I am still passing pieces I haven’t worn in a while, so there’s a little work left to do.
My last style goal was to have more casual pieces (much akin to the athleisure trend). I’ve bought a couple things in this category, but I’d like to get more. I’ve also got my eye on a black pair of Nike’s that I think will be the perfect casual footwear for bopping around town.
Pants are my next goal. I need to revitalize my collection and venture outside of the jeans world (but I’ve got a jeans wish list the length of my skinnies).
Do you have style goals set for yourself? Share them!
By setting style goals you shop smarter, and end up with a closet built specifically around your needs rather than your impulses. And that translates to a happier, more put-together you!
Figure out the holes in your wardrobe and build goals around them so you can walk out of your closet ready to take on the rest of the year!
Outfit deets: skirt (I got on super sale at JCP a couple years ago but that links to a similar one) / sweater (I picked up all the way back in 2015 ;) at a local boutique – Reap The Sew)
