8 Style Resolutions

Hello Friends, Happy 2018!

As a new year begins I always think of the way I can refresh my personal style and give it new life and inspiration. I hope that I creatively evolve my fashion sense, develop my personal style and embrace my african heritage confidently. As we have started a new season,  I wanted to share the 8 style resolutions for this year. I started this series three years ago with my 5 style resolutions and how I did at the end of the year with 5 style resolutions update

Build a Capsule Wardrobe 
I have been fascinated with the capsule wardrobe idea for the past year now. A capsule wardrobe is a mini wardrobe made up of versatile staple pieces that create personalized outfits that you love to wear. Since I have discovered and now know my personal style. as the new year quickly approaching I thought it would be a perfect time to start. I will be following the advice from the blogger Caroline Rector and her website unfancy.com it will show and teach step by step how to create a capsule wardrobe I know I will love.

Try a Monochromatic/Minimalist Style
I have always been interested in wearing, all black, all gray, all white outfits. It will push my style to a whole new level. So I will research, find inspiration and grow my creativity to push my personal style further with monochromatic/minimalist style trends.

Buy Investment Pieces
 I want to buy and support more contemporary African Designers. I will also get better quality wardrobe essentials and classic pieces.  Investing in my wardrobe will help me create the style I have always wanted.  in these collections will eventually be seen on the blog and it will teach me to be careful and thoughtful when buying luxury items. 

Build a Signature Color Palate
Choosing the colors that will bring the vibe and personality to my wardrobe. I will do a color analysis to see what colors work best for my skin tone and create a color palate that compliments me. 

Get a Beauty Routine (skin care, makeup & hair care)
I have learned the power of living a healthy life to improve my skin and keep my hair strong and growing. I would also want to learn how to great beauty for special or important occasions that will get be a polished signature look.

Collect Signature Statement Accessories
I absolutely enjoy and collect African jewelry and accessories. I will resolve to build a collection that can be added to each outfit that i style and is seamless to my personality. See this blog post: African Accessories- will update soon) 

Build a Stylish Shoe Collection
I have been building a collection that can carry from season to season and to each year. I realize that shoes are important to any outfit and having a collection of basics, unique ones can be so much fun. (See my summer shoe | summer shoe part 2 | winter boots )

Be a better Thrift shopper
This past year I have recognized the benefits of shopping second hand. It helps the environment, my wallet and pushes my creativity to style unique pieces and find classic styles to modernize. (See my come thrift with me |come thrift with us-snapchat
