Hi, everyone! I hope you all had the very merriest Christmas filled with so much joy and light! We had a relatively quiet but very good one. Now we get to talk about what I am (or you) wearing for New Year’s Eve. First, though, I want to tell you all how much I appreciate all of you! You don’t have to look at this blog at all; I get it. It shows up in your inbox (maybe), or you see it on Facebook, but you don’t have to open it. For those who religiously do or even if you occasionally do, it means a lot to me, and I am so grateful to you! I am getting a little sappy because the last six weeks were very stressful for me. I learned a big fat lesson because I took on too much. I have a hard time saying “no.” Anyway, I agreed to more collaborations than I should have, and I am so sorry if you were getting too many emails from me. It was a lot of work and robbed the joy of Christmas for me this year. I hate learning lessons the hard way! I just wanted to tell you all how much I appreciate you hanging in there with me!
What I am wearing for New Year’s Eve
Now we can move on to what I am wearing for New Year’s Eve. My husband and I have never been huge NYE celebrators. We generally like to keep it low key with just us or a few good friends. This year, as of right this minute, we are having a few couples over for dinner. It’s just easier to do it at a house instead of fighting for a reservation in Dallas (that’s because we forgot to make one!). We can huddle up by the fire and catch up and maybe get out a game! Because we are staying in, I got this pretty grey velvet robe blazer and shimmer tee so that I at least look somewhat festive (both on major sale). I love the two pieces with white jeans and the suede pumps (which I will start with, but I am sure will come off early on).
My picks for New Year’s Eve Pieces Below
What are you all doing for New Year’s Eve? Do you have to get dressed up? I think throwing on anything sparkly, velvet, or jewel tone will be winners! I’m sure you all have your outfits picked out by now, but if not, I am giving my picks for New Year’s Eve dressed up and down. Most of these are either on sale or under $200.
I hope you all have the best New Year’s Eve and I am praying that each of you reading this will have a very wonderful, blessed, healthy, stress-free, and prosperous year! I am a big believer in writing down what you are expecting because it seems to give your expectations and goals life. Whatever they are, I hope they become a reality! Thank you again for reading this blog. By doing so, you all have given me a purpose, and I am so grateful.
Blessings and love to you all! xx
