denim & leather.
Kicking off the year with two of my favourite buys from 2012. This Kahlo leather skirt has seen me through summer winter and summer again (not to mention the countless times I get honked at while waiting at the bus stop in it) and my chambray shirt was a purchase from my trip to Japan (almost a year ago now). I don't really believe in New Year's resolutions - I don't think New Year's should be reason to wipe the slate clean. You can change your routine, your habits, your behaviour any day, any week, any month of the year. Most of the time new year's resolutions seem to fail after the first week of January because there's no real motivation for change. Moral of the story: Change what you want to change, when you want to change. I promised myself I'd go back to the gym after I finished semester and I've been doing just that. This however has seen me foster an obsession with Nike fitness gear. I've bought more Nike in the last month than anything else (which might be a good thing) - but more on that in the not so distant future.
Despite my anti-resolution stance, I have set myself a style resolution to buy more staples and investments and less trend-driven/ impulse purchases. My judgement on what is and what isn't worth the money is slowly improving but I sometimes find myself drawn to pieces that everyone else is coveting. Well here's to another year of finding my signature style!
