Thrift Style Thursday - New Year Style Resolutions

Woo hoo, Thrift Style Thursday is back!  So very excited to be back at sharing weekly thrifted outfits and finds with my fellow Thrift Style Thursday gals.  We took December to regroup and refocus and I love what we're bringing your way this year.  Each week a different one of us is going to host - and the host also is the one who chooses the theme for that week too.  This week Zhenya of Being Zhenya is our host and she chose the theme of "New Year" - new style, old style, what are our style resolutions?

For me, I think I'm not making resolutions or even really a new style so to speak as much as I'm continuing to define the style identity I finally discovered late last year.  I kind of realized my style is "Working Mom Casual Chic."  I don't get super dressed up anymore, but I want to still look cute and trendy.  I need my wardrobe to be as functional as it is stylish - appropriate not just for work but for chasing around a one year old.  I don't want to have to think super hard about my style choices either.

I'm doing pretty well with this so far.  I've started pulling more and more items out of my closet that just seem to no longer fit with who I am.  I'm getting back into really working on re-mixing my closet too, trying to come up with new combinations.  I'm back to having more fun getting dressed and I rarely have a day that I feel uncomfortable in what I wear.

Sweater - Mossimo (Target), Pants - No Boundaries (thrifted)
Scarf - Christmas gift, Boots - Target

I'm happy to say I've really worked on variety too and I feel like I finally have a lot of color when I open my closet.  This isn't to say neutrals are bad, but I was starting to feel like I had a lot of the same color for awhile there - especially gray.  This is something I plan to continue in 2015.  Color just makes me happy.

Dress - Old Navy (thrifted), Sweater - Herbergers
Tights - Old Navy, Boots - Target, 
Scarf - Handmade (gift from sister-in-law)
Purse - Vintage Coach (thrifted)

So that's where I'm at.  Not much new in terms of style this year, just continuing to work on what I already learned about myself!  It's always going to be a work in progress.  I'd love to do an only thrifted wardrobe for a year too - I tell you I went to the mall a couple of weeks ago to get some shoes for Oliver and after that I feel like I wouldn't be missing much if I did stop shopping new - but I still can't help my weakness for Target and Old Navy.  All the other stores I could kiss goodbye right now, but not those two, dang it!  

What are your style resolutions?  Be sure to check out the other Thrift Style Thursday gals blogs to see what they plan for 2015!  The images below in this sweet new graphic made by Brittany from Lipstick and Yarn are clickable!
