Style Resolutions

I don't really believe in resolutions per se but I do think style resolutions or perhaps revolutions are important. I have been toying with minimalism; the idea of it excites me but it is truly difficult to put into action. I made a list a few weeks ago and I've stuck to it reasonably well. But I need to make a few updates to the list because I need to really experiment with my style.

A few years ago, I was EXTREMELY into fashion. Gosh I lived and breathed it. I bought all the fashion magazines and wrote for The Vine and dressed up all the time. But I got fat, went through some heavy stuff and I lost all interest in me.

So what now? I've lost most the weight, got my hair cut and I'm feeling more like the girl I used to identify myself with. And sometimes I feel like faaaarrsshhionn can be such a bore, but style never is. Now I'm back in a size that is reasonable, I can get away with cuter outfits, show my arms, bare my legs and feel confident. So from tomorrow, which is my first day back at work, and hence the first day I'll actually be getting up at a proper time and doing my hair, I'm going to try something new every day. No fail safe outfits, no holy grails. Experimentation...

A few questions:
  • Does anyone have any tips for outfits that work well with bike riding??
  • When are clogs going out of fashion? (I hate them.)
Happy New Year, may your style grow this year!
