I’ve been contemplating the year 2012 and what it holds for me personally and style wise. I was out with two of my best girlfriends last night and we were all admitting our “style ruts”. It’s true that once we learn to do a “look”, we do it over and over, which can be great – especially if it’s a timeless look, but that can also get boring. Who wants to be boring?? Not me, sister!!!
So, I’ll start by confessing my Style Rut Look: Skinnies and Boots. There it is. Add a cute top, minimal jewelry, and I’m out the door. It’s just so EASY! Sigh.
Here are my high hopes for the new year – that I’ll wear some of those great skirts in my closet with some fun tights and my good old boots (or those new ones I just got at Anthropologie – on sale – thank you Nat!), that I’ll pair my jeans with some heels once in a while, and that I’ll wear more pants and blouses with statement jewelry. I’ve made good friends with color and pattern, so I’ll keep adding them to my closet as well. This girl loves a good neutral, but really, how much does one need?! I also need to have some more fun with my makeup – I’ve got a standard look, but I’m loving layered eye liner and I’m thinking I need a few more Urban Decay colors – this travel set would be a great start for anyone wanting to join me! :)
I encourage all of you to consider your own Style Rut Look and make a plan to change things up – you deserve it! Think of someone in your life who has great style or pulls off a look you’ve been telling yourself you can’t. I’m here to say you can. Do it. Have some fun with your clothes and if you want some help, call me!
Happy New Year!
