Back to Basics
Resolutions are notoriously difficult to keep, this is just fact. You make all these lofty goals and then you get overwhelmed by how insanely difficult they are and suddenly you stop everything you did and you’re back to where you started.
Inspired by this post on Chicagoist, I’m going back to basics for mine. “Get my mental health in order” is a HUGE resolution. Like, insanely scary whoa this is a big adventure and I really need to rethink this kind of huge. So I’m starting much smaller than that. Breaking it down into steps that I can actually manage. Taking things, such as really committing to making my bed every single morning, that will help on that path and making them habit before moving on to the next thing.
This shoot was a great reminder of going back to basics. A super basic white T from forever 21, my favorite jeans from Zara, a simple necklace and shoes, but a bold pop of color form the blazer. The outfit is simple, it’s easy, but it has a little something to it that’s eye catching.
Whatever your resolution this year, I hope it’s something you can manage. I hope you remember to go back to your basics with it.
