A bright new year



































New Year's Eve came and went and left us with the annoying task of getting used to finishing every date entry with '12 instead of '11. I for my part had to re-do a whole list of documents I was recording for today's date. A task that would have taken me 30 minutes, took me 45, and I spent those extra 15 minutes really wondering if I had actually just come back from a NYE celebration in beautiful New York.
Now, besides incorrect date entries, a new year brings with it the hope of a brighter future and the task of setting yourself a resolution to focus on achieving in the next 365 days. Despite the fact that I am not a quitter, I am a master at setting resolutions I never intend on accomplishing but 2012 has a better ring to it-- possibly because some Mayans predicted it to be the end of the world-- and despite my failed efforts throughout the last 5 years, I am resolved to accomplish 4 of the following 5 New Years resolutions:

#1 Limit my intake of canned and microwavable meals to 1 per week
#2 Get over my fear of flying
#3 Get over my fear of flying and go to Europe
#4 Buy a super chic peplum
#5 Buy a pair of black cropped jeans and wear them with a super chic peplum

I still wonder which of these 5 I am planning to ditch but by the looks of these last three days, #1 seems to be harder than I thought. I do have one more resolution that I plan to keep a secret. But if It comes true, you'll be the first to know!
Care to share your resolutions?

Top and Coat- NY & Co, Jeans- H&M (old), Shoes- Steve Madden similar here, Bracelets- F21 and Perú, Ring- UO (old), sunglasses- BCBG

  46. I love your use of colour, and your photoshoot was perfectly contrasted with the blustery weather! The neutral colour of your hair and shoes helped make your outfit pop, good job! (Hope that made sense, haha) Best of luck for your new years resolution! I liked your blog so I'm now following on Google Friends.
