I know it may sound and look ridiculous – fashion related resolutions? Did you completely lost it? Well… YES. But there’s always the right time and the room for improvement. I treat fashion as well as my hobby AND work, I’m privileged to work my passion part-time, and there’s no greater thing to do. And I still got plenty to improve, educate myself about and I believe I can grow in that very important area of my life as well.

I’m not really into New Year Eve and New Year Resolution. It’s a beautiful date to celebrate, bur for me resolution is a simple decision to do or not to do something, I wake up with resolutions every single day. Of course some resolutions take longer, but in these situations days are like puzzles – either you pick it and put in the right place, which allows you to see an extra-tiny bit more of the final picture, or you ignore it and wait for another one to catch your attention (aka either you do it today, or wait for ‘tomorrow’; every day is another step and is going to pass either you want it or not).

 

So… There are my 5 top resolutions for this year:

5. Be braver pattern and color wise.

I always described my style as simple and classic. There were not many other colors in my wardrobe than black, blue, white and grey, and when it came to patterns… I was scared of them, as well as accessories. It’s nothing wrong to trust your basics, and I still love them and I plan to post and create plenty of content about must-have classic pieces. It’s also nothing wrong to experiment, express yourself and your passion, share it and have fun during this short time on that planet! So prepare yourself for brighter, braver and more extravagant outfits I’ve been planning!

4. Post every second day.

I came up with this idea a lot earlier, but January just seemed right to start. And I’m not sure it may be a little of the ‘New Year new me‘ magic or this was just purely accidental. If you follow me for a little bit, you may noticed. In 2019 I started to post every second day. It’s quite overwhelming and can be difficult sometimes (and I notice it after what, 20 days?) to balance personal life and blog, but it’s a process and to see any results practice, practice and practice is needed. I’m not planning to stress out about it, if I really didn’t feel like creating anything the due day, I simply wouldn’t, we are all just people. But I’m going to do my best and approach it with the healthy mindset.

3. Take care of your body!

With healthy body comes the healthy mind, as they say. Back in 2017 I started to focus more on that, but this time I want to make it a habit. I wasn’t always systematic with exercising and my meals (my ‘portioning’ has no limits) and I want and have to change that. There is no top secured secret that looks matter in that profession. And believe me movement does matter even more when you spend most of the time working on the computer!

2. Invest in at least 2 high-end.

Since I remember I always had a thing for the designer creations, secretly saving links and day-dreaming about them, but never laid my hands on any. Well… yet! I plan to make bigger investments this or next year (being realistic here). I don’t want to promise it to myself, as I can’t predict the future, but I have big hopes with this one!

1. Educate yourself!

Only last year I have just heard for the first time (shocking!) about a very important problem which is fast fashion and its nasty stealing and destroying business. As much as it’s almost unrealistic to avoid it 100%, it’s still very important to talk about it and express your opinion as a consumer. But as well as there are brands playing nasty game, there are brands that want to profit on pure quality and creativity, that are free from people and animals suffering and Mother Earth does matter to them. There’s a lot that I don’t know. Fashion and beauty – these are businesses. And as every business, it has its history, people standing behind it, its ups and downs, glory days and sins some try to cover. Fashion and beauty was and is the fastest growing industry, and there’s so much I’m hungry to know!

I mentioned it before in my post (My easy to do cruelty free make-up) – I only use cruelty free make-up and cosmetics for obvious reasons. Since then I have used and changed a little bit my make-up routine, adding some new products.

Winter is my least favorite time of year for many reasons – days are shorter and apparently so is my creativity (although I don’t know if you could describe creativity as ‘short’, but neither can you call it ‘big’ or count the level of it so I will leave it like that), foggy days are not really getting me all inspired and ready for hard work. Not to mention seeing the 100 000th caramel coat or teddy coat outfit picture on Instagram. Don’t get me wrong, I hype about a good, classic coat but… come on!

So how can I make a difference, you may ask? Here are my 5 answers to that question, which are very easy to style and adapt to any wardrobe:

1

 

1. Croc-effect!

This trend is literally everywhere – from accessories like cute vintage bag and ankle length boots to… COATS. So why don’t try to level your winter look up with leather coat or pants patterned in croc? Extra easy to style – with that statement piece you don’t need much more than white shirt, girly pumps and straight-leg jeans.

2.Shearling coat

Just like croc-effect one, cute and interesting alternative to classic coat, and still extra easy to style – will work amazing with either your basic jumper and cowboy boots or something crazy, like sequins pants and platform boots.

 

 

 

 

33. Coloring

Winter doesn’t have to be all about blacks, beiges and whites. It looks cute, but not 20th day in the row, so choosing statement colors is a good way to get noticed in the crowd. If you don’t own any color in your clothes section, try with accessories – red lacquered heels or electric blue bag.

4. Faux Fur

Another statement piece that took 2018 by storm. At first I found it a little bit too extra, but I’m dying to try this trend now! You can create amazing Street Style inspired looks by breaking glamorous fur vibe with sporty pieces like sneakers or hoodie.

And funky sunglasses are a must accessory!

5. Oversized aviator

Wearing extra masculine or military-inspired coat is a must try this winter! Works extra flattering with flowy dresses and flared jeans and boots. Oversize it to add a bit of ‘my boyfriends jacket’ vibe.

Tip:You can find an amazing piece in second-hand shop!
