I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions. I mean, I’m going to work out exactly as much as I want to, regardless of any resolutions I make. However, I’ve seen a couple of posts on style resolutions and thought that was something I could do. And then, of course, I couldn’t think of anything which is why I'm just now getting around to posting this.
It’s not that I think my style is perfect (well, maybe perfectly eclectic) it’s just that, for the most part, I like what I wear. But, I do think I could push myself a little more. And I could refine my style a bit, if only because “refined eclectic” sounds fancier than just “eclectic.” So, here they are; my style resolutions for 2013. Better late than never, right?
Yes, I know I already wear a lot of color, but I want to make sure that, in my drive to refine my style, that I don’t lose my love of color. So, this resolution is to maintain my current color-wearing ways but in a more refined manner.
Play with proportion.
Proportion scares me. I love color and I love print and I like to think I can handle both fairly well, but proportion throws me off my game. I tried playing with proportion a little bit last year, with mixed results, but I want to make even more of an effort in 2013.
I love slouchy, cool outfits. I have never, ever been able to pull one off. I don’t know if it’s that I’m inherently uncool or if it’s my body shape/size or it I am just sort of uptight, but I can’t do relaxed style. But, I’ve decided this year is the year. So, prepare yourselves for a lot of experimental layers and oversized slouch, because Gracey is bringing the cool. Hopefully.
Clean my closet.
It’s not that my closet is a mess (well, it is, but that has nothing to do with this resolution) it’s that it’s full. Too full. I cleaned some spring/summer clothes out with last summer’s Nosh Opping Expedition, but I really should do the same for my fall/winter clothes. And then do another round for spring/summer, just to be safe. Because, somehow, I still have a LOT of clothes. But, I’m working on it. Sort of…
What about you, Reader Friends? Do you have any style resolutions for the New Year?
