Biker boots and setting new goals

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Pleated yellow midi skirts and lace-up biker boots, I flipping think so! I am so into this girly gone bad contrasting look, that we are seeing everywhere at the minute. This skirt and boots combo is exactly what I am talking about, a little bit girly, a little bit edgy. Plus this cut-off sweater from Zara, is an absolute staple that Zara will bring out year after year and I will (of course) keep wearing year after year.

I love the hope of the new year, and all of the goal setting, and list writing possibilities it brings (for those of you that know me, will know that I love a list!) however this year I want to do things differently. No waiting around until New Year’s Eve, I’m setting my goals now. I am naturally a goal setter, and it really helps me to clear my mind, but I wouldn’t set that I achieve the goals I set that regularly and this frustrates me! Are my goals too unrealistic, are my milestones too unachievable? I actually think it is both of those things, but also so much more, so what am I going to do differently?

Firstly I am going to visualise my goals, it’s difficult to motivate yourself to t end goal if you can’t see visualise what you are trying to achieve. So if you are trying to lose weight, cut a picture out of a magazine to motivate yourself on your journey. Making yourself accountable in my experience is hugely important. So I want to get fitter, and the best way for me to do this as a blogger & Instagrammer is to make myself accountable on my Instagram stories, tell my followers what I will be doing, and ask them for encouragement when I am struggling. Make yourself accountable to your friends and family, when you tell people, they will do all they can to help & encourage you. The next step is to break your goals down, of course as a blogger I want to grow and develop my blog, but getting to my end goal may seem massive and unachievable, so what should I do? Break this goal down to manageable bite sized pieces and set milestones. It is so much easier to visualise where you need to go and what you need to achieve, if you can see the steps in between, and also the sense of achievement when you hit each milestone. I hope this helps & I am now genuinely off to write my new goals, wish me luck!

Khaki Green High-Waisted Trousers

I absolutely love Mango as a high-street store although I often forget about it, I may not have bought from Mango for months, and a gorgeous blogger that I follow on Instagram may alert me to something that I fall in love with. It was the same for these khaki high-waisted trousers, they are just such amazing quality, and I think they look so much more expensive than they actually are (plus they were in the sale…win).

Due to the fact that they are so high-waisted they really do elongate the legs, which is surely a good thing for anyone! The white vest top is also from Mango, in fact I’ve only just realised that I’ve spent all summer without a white vest top…mental!

Lastly the most perfect black leather court shoes from Topshop, that are so comfy and I wear them for pretty much everything, work, nights out, even weekend shopping because they are so comfortable.
