My Fashion Resolutions

Jumpsuit*: Boohoo
Boots: Primark
Watch: Michael Kors
Ring: Primark

Lately I've been playing it pretty safe when it comes to fashion. After putting on a lot of weight last year and generally feeling a bit 'meh' about myself, I tended to choose the 'easiest' things I could find to wear in my wardrobe - usually baggy jumpers and oversized dresses and leggings. Whilst I still love those things, I've decided that 2016 is going to be the year I fall back in love with fashion, and by that I mean I want to start wearing the things I really love and often say 'I wish I could wear that, but it would look horrible on me', as opposed to just wearing the things I think I can get away with. 

When Boohoo got in touch and asked if I wanted to work with them on a fashion resolutions post, detailing the things I want to wear more of this year, I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to put my resolution of wearing what I really want to wear into action. After scouring the website for things that I always look at and wish I could wear, but usually shy away from, I stumbled across this jumpsuit and fell in love. 

I don't wear jumpsuits very often at all - I have a couple in my wardrobe but I usually try them on, think I look ridiculous and choose something else. This time, however, I thought 'screw it' and I'm so glad I did, because I adore this jumpsuit from Boohoo. I love everything about it; the black and white grid pattern looks really chic, the arm length is super flattering and I really like the pyjama style - it's unlike anything else I own. I decided to pair it with some simply chunky black boots and minimal accessories because I really think the jumpsuit does all the talking.

So, I think I've got off to the right start in facing my fashion fears and sticking with my New Year's fashion resolution to wear the things I really want to wear more often - especially jumpsuits. I think I might go and drag out my dungaree jumpsuit now! 

What are your fashion resolutions for 2016? I'd love to know! 


  1. The Jumpsuit looks incredible on you! My 2016 fashion resolution is probably to optimise what I have and only purchase items I really love! :)

    I always stick with black jeans and a loose flawy top but this post definitely me rethink that :)

  8. You look lovely, I am guilty of playing it safe with fashion too. Ever since I left uni I have been rotating the same pieces over and over again, and I rarely see anything in store that I like enough to buy. I think it has a lot to do with your mood and whether you are "feeling yourself" or not. Hopefully, this year I will be a bit more confident.

  10. fashion is all about expressing one's self and feeling good about yourself. Wearing the things you love even if it's unusual for the majority is okay, as long as you're happy about it. :) I'm glad you'll start wearing the pieces you "really love". Have fun! :)

    xoxo, rae

  11. You look absolutely amazing in this!
    I'm in the same boat - living in over sized jumpers & smock dresses because I've put on a chunk of weight over the past few months. Thank you for reminding me to fall back in love with clothes!
