No new year resolutions for 2017 but an ‘Overall’ good start..!


No new year resolutions for 2017 but an ‘Overall’ good start..!

Happy 2017! I sincerely hope that you had the best New Year’s Eve with all your friends and family along your side. It is the time of champagne, glitter dresses and fire works. But it is for many of us also the time to set new resolutions, plans and ambitions. The new year is seen as a fresh start and the perfect moment to set personal goals, like start working out more, eating healthier and getting that promotion. However, this is not for me. Not because I don’t feel the need to grow, but more because I think that every day is a new start. For example, last week I started a new daily goal: 7 Minutes Workout. Not on the 1st of January, but just on a random December day after my sister inspired me to do so. In my opinion you should do things whenever you feel like doing it. I don’t see the point in waiting for a certain year, birthday or achievement to start pursuing your goals. You should do it whenever it feels right, no matter the timing: book that flight to travel, start your own business or… buy that beautiful bag today! Why wait to start living your own authentic life? Why delay your personal growth? Just start living the life of your dreams! Happy new year!


It’s an overall good start with my holdall bag!

So today I make an overall good start of 2017 in this casual chic outfit. I found the Stripe Bell Sleeve Sweater and Overalls on Dezzal, one of my favourite online shops to find original statement pieces. I also carry a new piece of arm-candy. It is holdall by Missco Girl, a Canadian fashion label that designs a beautiful bag collection for any girl that turns into a miss. These bags are for ladies who’s dreams are big and think that anything is possible. Her opportunities are endless and to make sure that she can start living the life of her dreams in 2017, we created a special discount code: BAGATYOU10. With this code, you’ll receive 10% off upon check out on full-priced items. Like I said above, don’t wait if you know you want it as this code expires on 05/01/2017.

    • Thank you for your compliments Amy! I also love this suit! I hope you will have the best 2017! Big Xx Susanne

  • I agree with your thoughts on resolutions and think that that best time for change is now! Lately, I’ve been noticing that more and more people are doing away with resolutions and are more goal oriented, which I think is a much better way to view the change because often times, resolutions are promises we make that we often fail at following through with. Goals, on the other hand, require a process that’s much more forgiving mentally. As for your outfit, I love the way the striped top and chevron bag (which is GORGEOUS) looks paired together, so chic! Thank so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great start to your new year so far!



    • Yes, Goals are so much better than resolutions! We shouldn’t be too hard on ourselves. Thank you for your compliments about my look! I am indeed having the best start of the new year and I sincerely hope you have the same. Big Xx!!

  • I absolutely agree with you that we change something any day. We don’t need to wait for that one day in a year.

    I love this look. The top and bag are amazing.
