Sartorial Resolutions

I know it’s already January 20th and I’m so behind on this, but this month has flown by and don’t people procrastinate on their resolutions anyway?

1. Make My Blog Better

I really love blogging, and I always think there is room for improvement. I need posts that are more interesting instead of just general opinion and pointing out trends. I need to keep the few of you reading this entertained and maybe pick up a few new readers on the way! Jessica of What I Wore has some great blogging tips and I’ve always admired her and her blogging expertise.

2. Take More Outfit/Personal Photos

A blog that isn’t personal just seems cold and boring; filled with photos that belong to other people. I need something that you can only see here, and all of my adorable outfits and expensive camera are going to waste! What better way to write about current trends and my personal style than to post my own representation of those things?

My fave color? Mustard yellow. Bronze ring: vintage.

3. Be Daring

I’ve always taken the safe side when it comes to fashion. Years of low self esteem caused me to not care how I looked. I felt comfortable sitting at the computer and putting my knowledge of fashion out there in a way where nobody had to see me and I could hang out in gym shorts and a band shirt. No more, I’ve got a great new job where we are encouraged to be stylish and some new confidence. I’ve always been good at putting outfits together and dressing other people, I need to start doing so for myself.

4. Wear Leggings Less

Leggings can be very chic and the perfect medium between tights and jeans, but I wear them way too much. When I don’t feel like trying I immediately go for leggings, and slouchy layers. I go running in leggings. I sleep in leggings. I lounge around my apartment in leggings. I can’t completely get rid of them, but this goes along with being daring. I need to get creative and find something else to wear.

5. Get A Classic White Shirt

The classic white button up is an absolute wardrobe staple and can be styled in so many ways. I know it’s nothing too out there and kind of brings me back to my safe place, but I feel this is one safe, simple piece that you can take so so far.

6. Accessorise

The accessories can sometimes make the outfit. I need to amp up my accessories. I’ve recently purchased a myriad of rings, as I’ve found I love wearing quite a few at once. And a couple of fab rings can dress up the simplest of outfits. Same goes for other jewelry and accessories. I own only a few scarves, one hat, and I’m a “get a good purse and use it until it falls apart” kind of person.


And that’s all I’ve got for now! But #1 is most important. If you stumble upon my little blog and you’re reading this now, please please take a look through and leave me a comment telling me what I could improve! It would be greatly appreciated.
