My 3 Style Intentions For 2018

It’s that time of the year again when you write a date and end up typing 2017, hit backspace and write 2018 in your second try.
I’m sure you can relate!

Another major trending topic that dictates the first week of the year is – yes you guessed it right, RESOLUTIONS!
I am never one for making resolutions, it is so overrated. But while I was going through The Chriselle Factor the other day, I was intrigued by her idea of replacing resolutions with intentions.

“The biggest difference between Resolutions and Intentions is that resolutions are mainly focused on “DOING,” whereas Intentions are focused on “BEING.” Resolutions can come and go, but when you set the right intention it becomes a part of you and a lifestyle.” – The Chriselle Factor.

In the spirit of trying something new this year, I’m writing down my style intentions!
But before I get right into it, I’m sharing a few items from my outfit. The top is from Nordstrom and the Pants from Mellore, but they are OOS, so sharing similar options below.

1) I intend to shop less and style more
Owning everyday style doesn’t translate into buying a lot of clothing. I’m going to get creative with the items in my closet and try different ways of styling them instead of looking for new things to buy. The best way to do it is to stock up on fashion basics.

Check out some of the must-have basic items in your closet below.

2) I intend to get out of my comfort zone and try something new
True, style is about being comfortable, but sometimes we get so cozy in our comfort zone we tend to stop experimenting. I’m going to break that cycle by trying something new, from mashed up prints to plastic jackets, I’m ready to try it!

Here are some unique designs that are on my list!

3) I intend to experience more
2017 was all about setting up Runway to Road, now that I’ve got it going, I want to go out there and experience more and do more. Your experiences dictate your style in a major way, and I’m open to new experiences in 2018. Travel more, see more and experience more. I’m going to use everything around me to inspire me to get out.

From travel inspired clothing, to home decor, here are some of the items I cannot wait to get my hands on!


What will your intentions be for 2018?
I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.

Here’s one intention from me to you, always Keep it Stylish! 🙂

    Love your outlook for 2018! I think it’s important to utilize what you have in your closet to develop a style instead of following trends!

    Happy New Year!

      Hey Cynthia, happy new year!
      I think there has to be a mix of both, experimenting but also getting creative with what you have in your closet!

      Love,

    I’m subbing from Instagram! One of my intentions is to post about fashion on my blog this year. It’s still pretty new so been thinking of ways to expand it, and I love reading posts like this one!

    Great list. I definitely need to shop less & style more. I went through my entire closet a few wks ago & all of the pieces I’ve never worn or have only worn once I wrote down on paper & I’m going to style them on paper & make myself wear everything asap. As for over worn pieces I’ll be changing the looks up completely. Love these photos pretty girl, that sweater is so great!
