How to Achieve Personal Goals – 4 Important Tips

Tips for Achieving Personal Goals

Now that Spring is finally here, the change of season makes me look back at the first months of the year and reassess my resolutions, plans and expectation for the year. So let’s talk about goals. We all have plenty of them in our minds, but quite often we lack time or energy to achieve even one.  Whether your personal goal is to create a side business,  write more blog posts (guilty!) , plan a trip or start a new workout routine, it can be hard to make a commitment and not let it slip up with time. I wish there was a secret formula of how to achieve personal goals, but really there isn’t one! Your desired outcome will result exclusively from how much effort you put into it.

While juggling a 9-5 job, maintaining a home, keeping somewhat of a healthy routine and working on a blog,  I can say that I learned a few things on how to set and achieve personal goals. The main trick is not to get overwhelmed and create goals impossible to achieve, otherwise you will give up before even starting!  Create mini-projects/goals and work on them one by one.

Here are 4 important tips to help you along the way:

Spring Ready

We are officially done with winter and bad weather and Spring ready! At least from our point of view. 🙂 Vancouver keeps being a little moody about letting Spring take over and letting us wear more of our spring capsule wardrobe.

We’ve been having some crazy days in the past week, but Carolina and I have made a promise to be more committed to our blog and post more often now that the days are longer and we have more time to meet up after work! Working on a side-project can prove challenging if you are not organized enough and we realized we need to keep more focused on our content calendar so we can grow our blog and share more of our tips with you.

Yes, Miami has it all – and the weather couldn’t be more aligned with everything the city has to offer!

Girlfriend Jeans

It had been a while since I started looking for a pair of jeans to be my go-to pants for Spring. I wanted to steer away from the distressed skinny (my wardrobe is already full of those) and invest in a more classic straight fit. My goal was to get something both comfortable and flattering at the same time, so after trying all sorts of trendy jeans styles like mom, wide leg and relaxed boyfriend, I finally settled with the girlfriend jeans!

This style is still quite fitted, but not so snuggle in the ankles, giving a more relaxed look that I find perfect for warmer days.  I specially like how this girlfriend jeans are high waisted and cropped at the ideal length, making it fun to play with outfit proportions, like pairing it with a shorter suede jacket and loafers.

Spring Layering

Not sure about all of you but we are officially over winter and cold! At least in our minds and in our hearts! Although the temperature has been pretty stubborn these past weeks and didn’t want to show us any higher digits, we can’t stop thinking of refreshing our outfits with new Spring pieces and wearing our lighter layers.

Almost as important as during fall, Spring layering is meant to transition you from winter thicker clothes to more lightweight outfits.

I usually mix a spring / summer piece with a thicker cover-up and try to at least cheer myself up when I am indoors and get to feel like it’s not winter anymore. I am wearing one of my favorite blouses with a wool coatigan. The top is a mix between a silk blouse and a French tunic which I love to wear with denim shorts or suede skirts in the summer.

I like the clash between the feminine style of the top and the edgy crop cut of the coat and ripped black jeans. I wore this to work the other day, so I toned down the look with ankle boots, but this can look really cute with heeled boots or pumps on a fancier night.
