New Years Resolutions... A motivating start to a new year or a depressing reminder of everything you don't do well? Thoughts?


  1. Lovely jacket!

    I'm taking a little time today to write up some resolutions... It was definitely a little sad to see that I'd only completed 3 of 6 from this year. Better luck in 2012, I suppose?

  2. i've decided this year to make goals instead of resolutions. This way, i feel like i'm working towards something rather than having to drastically change everything at the drop of a hot....new years day being that hat... we'll see how it goes!

  3. That is such a beautiful coat, and even more beautiful with the addition of that bow pin...Love that you have such a great collection of pins!
    And...it depends on the resolution!! I guess it is a good to update your resolutions to make sure they are happy things, not things that make you feel bad.
    Happy Friday!!

  4. i am all about resolutions! i am still thinking of mine, and hope to have them up on my blog before the new year! i use them as goals to do things that make me happy and a better person in the year ahead. it is about moving forward and living for what you want

  5. Thanks for looking lovely in the coat. The bow pin makes it even better too!

  6. I like the bow brooch on your coat!

    As for New Year's resolutions, like the other commenters have said, I like to think of them more like goals. I also believe that if you want something badly enough, you shouldn't wait until a new year to start working on it. You can set goals for yourself any time of the year!

  7. I like to think in the glass half full kind of way, so that means I think resolutions are good! And you shouldn't punish yourself if they don't get followed through on either.

    Anyway, I love your boots! :)

    Happy New Year!

  8. Motivating! What are your resolutions dear?

  9. First I just want to say Happy New Year!
    Love love love the bow pin on your coat. It completes the outfit perfectly.
    I decided for this year I'm going to make a mix of goals/resolutions. Personally I find goals easier to keep and I like working towards something and keeping track. Still working on what those goals/resolutions are but I'll figure them out in a few days.
    Can't wait to hear what yours are!


  10. I love your Brooch! I need to find me one! Happy New Year!

  11. Love your jacket...and that bow pin is TOO cute! I don't really get hung up on resolutions...not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing :)

  12. I think it could go either way, depending on what frame of mind you are in! I think I just needed a reason to kick start a few goals or change over a new leaf. But in the past, I definitely didn't stick to my NY's resolutions. I actually posted my goals for 2012 today.


  13. I'm in love with this jacket and vintage brooch! Definitely inspired me to follow you :)
