2018 Style Resolutions

Happy New Year! Can you believe it 2018 already? We hope and pray everyone has a blessed and prosperous 2018. We also hope you all have set some goals or resolutions for this new year, whether it be personal, professional, fitness, financial, etc.  In addition to personal resolutions, style resolutions are also important. You don't want to grow in one area in your life and look the same. Let your style reflect the growth in other areas of your life.

Every year we share our style/shopping resolutions. I plan on continuing my 2017 resolutions because I didn't really stick to all my resolutions. However, I did cut down on my unnecessary shopping, but I plan to do better in 2018 with my style resolutions. See ours below. 

Christen's Style Resolutions

No Impulse Shopping
Just because Boohoo or some other store is having a major sale doesn't mean I have to order something just to say I saved money. I just end up buying stuff that won't last to the next year.  ShoeDazzle had a big sale for Black Friday and I bought 6 pairs of shoes. Looking back I really only needed like 3 of those. So if I don't need it. I won't be buying it.

Stop Buying For Events and Trips
Before any special event or trip, I always go crazy with buying new stuff, especially for travel. If you saw our insta story from our 2017 recap there was a photo of all the tags we popped in Iceland. It was kind of ridiculous, lol. This is going to be a hard one.

Wear More Colors
I fail at this every year. In the summer I do pretty well, but winter I'm in all black like the omen. As soon as the weather drops below 60 degrees I look like a Black Panther. Black is my color favorite color and I like the way it looks on but I need to step out the box. 

Build A Well Rounded Wardrobe
Impulse shopping stems from not having a well-rounded wardrobe. I'm always shopping before trips cause I don't have anything to wear. They say stay ready so you don't have to get ready. I'm also investing in more quality items; I'm cutting back on cheap shoes and bags. I'll be stalking my local Saks Off Fifth, Nordstrom Rack, and TJ Maxx for discounted designer items. 

Derria's Style Resolutions


Utilize Current Wardrobe Before Shopping 

It’s no secret that I shop year round. I think it’s still a good thing, but I have tons of clothes that still have tags on them. So this year I would like to wear them and in multiple ways. I plan on going through my closet and putting together multiple looks with my current wardrobe so when it’s time to go to an event I don’t have to spend any money.
Purge!

Every few weeks I plan on going through my closet and picking out clothes that I haven’t worn in the last 3-6 months and selling it online or taking it to the closest Buffalo Exchange to make money. Maybe using the money to pay off credit card debt etc.
