NEW TO MY WARDROBE

New Year Style Resolutions



Picture this. Your outfit for New Years Eve arrives and before you know it you're standing on the sea front with no tights on, in your garbs of choice, contemplating how much money you'd have if you had a penny for every goose bump on your body. Thankfully it was a kick ass outfit and the photos that Chloe took are the bomb. I branched out a little in terms of my choices for my outfit last week and it spurred on a train of thought on the style choices I want to make going forward.

WEAR WHITE: At the end of 2014 I realised that, despite having a winter wardrobe that looks partially shared with the grim reaper, white works pretty well on me. Last year my goal was to experiment more with colour, this year I'm going for white. It's a shade that works well across seasons and compliments any hair colour and skin tone. If that's not worth investing in I don't know what is.

FOLLOW YOUR HEART: I spent the last year putting off purchasing a few things that I really wanted, but felt they were too novelty or cute for my style (clean and minimalistic is always where it's at), but after giving in they end up being my most worn items (see cat bag, ballet flats and white midi skirts). This year I'm going to go with my gut - invest in softer accessories and create a mix of feminine and structured pieces.

COAT CRAVING: I will always be a coat lover, and where as I've declared to give up on the coat purchases in previous years, this year the coat coveting will continue. In 2014 I wasted too much time buying shirts that were lost under layers and didn't have enough ways to style. But a wardrobe full of classic coats and jackets can be so versatile, and can change the look of the entire outfit underneath.

MORE SHOES: For the past three years I've been that girl who has ten pairs of black boots. All round toe, all with some form of gold embellishment. Snooooze. I've already started branching out in when it comes to shape, finish and style and I can't wait until summer comes around so I can do it all again.

THAT ONE PURCHASE: I'm a high street girl always (sometimes more on the high end of the high street *ahem* WHISTLES) but this year is the year I splurge on ONE thing. Well, one designer handbag that is. I've wanted a Mulberry bag for a very long time now, and over the next 365 days (maybe less if I'm lucky), I'll be scraping my pennies together to buy one. My Dad thinks I've lost my mind, but I've worked really hard over the past four years and my opinion, it's time.

  15. White does really suit you! :)
    And I love the whole outfit. Especially the cat bag. I wished there'd be a coat that suits me. They look ok as long as they're open but as soon as I close them, I don't like the look of it ):

  21. Those shoes are amazing! And I think that it's totally fine to splurge on one thing since you do work really hard + designer handbags last a long time so you don't have to feel as guilty! :)

  24. Oh my gosh Suzie, these photos! You babe! The white looks totally amazing on you.
    I love all of your 2014 goals for fashion. I recently cleaned out a TON of clothes and I am holding off spending for a bit so I can really buy some things I love. Maybe splurge a bit on a bag ;) Mulberry is a beautiful option!

  34. It seemed like you upped your style game so much this past year and I can't wait to see more in 2015! Also when you say to follow your gut, do it! I love a mix of femininity and structure (that's actually what I consider one of the main points of my style). It has a very...Lily Collins/Emma Watson feel to me, and they always have the most amazing style.

  38. As I've gotten older, I've been spending less on cheaper items and spending more on investment pieces. I figure at this stage (I'm in my late 20s), I plan on keeping a few key pieces for a long time, so I might as well make sure they're good quality!

  47. Go with your gut is something that is super true. It's easy to get lost in the trends, wearing what the 'models' wear and losing who you really are. Looking back and thinking: did I REALLY wear this because I wanted to or because it was the 'it' clothing of the time?
    Sometimes we go off track and not buy things because we think we can't pull it off: my goal this year, wear it if you like it <3

  48. This is a great post! i haven't come across any other new year's resolutions white like this. I think this is an awesome idea, there has been so many times where I didn't buy something because I was unsure of it for myself and then regretted it later.

  62. Yes wear more white! I want to do this too. I'm scared of white pants/skirts but more white tops I could do.

  63. Suzie you look absolutely stunning! :)

    This year, I'm going to (hopefully) worry less about what people think about what I'm wearing, and try to push the envelope a bit style-wise. :)
