Here's one of my main fashion resolutions for 2022 ...

I've never been big on setting new year's resolutions, preferring instead to set goals as I see fit rather than when there's pressure to do so. 

I've always felt that setting hard-and-fast resolutions puts an unnecessary stress on the new year.

Yet, here I am making a few sartorial resolutions of sorts. Although, these are intended to read more like reminders for myself to look back on throughout the year rather than benchmarks of success/failure. 

Let's start with the easiest one first. I'd like to wear more skirts in 2022. Simple as that. Especially this winter as I'm very into tights lately. 

Next, I'd like to continue decluttering and 'shopping' my own closet. I've been sorting my closet for weeks now, going through what I want to keep vs. sell vs. donate. I've taken several loads to my favourite local resale stores — and even traded in a few pieces for a few new-to-me finds. 

During this process, I've rediscovered — and become reenergized about — several items that had been in the back of my closet.  This helps me with my next ambition ... 

Overall, I'd also like to try to shop less. My goal is to add to my closet only the pieces that I 'can't live without.' In order to do this, I'm going to use the 30-day rule. If I see something I want, I will wait 30 days before I buy it (in most cases, of course ;)). If, after that time period, I still want the item, I can get it. 

This approach should help keep me from making impulse purchases. Check back to see how that goes. 

And, if you're also feeling the skirts situation, shop a few favourites below.
