Hey friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I’ve kept myself off the internet and social media as much as possible, and while that was a much needed break, I feel like my to-do list is now a mile long. We may be off from school this week, but I feel like it’s solely going to be used to catch up with life.
Last year, I was able to take part in a blogger collaboration to share a New Year’s look with Ada and a few other friends. This year, she’s welcomed me back again! In regard to my own outfit, I mentioned last week that I’m really looking forward to a low-key New Years, and if I don’t opt for a casual jeans look like this, then a comfy sweater is my default go-to!
I love that style is an area with endless possibilities. These girls are all dressed completely different but still all so cute! Be sure to stop by their blogs and say hey!
“Hi friends! I’m Emily from Darling, Dearest. The past couple of months have been the most hectic I’ve had, as I wrote my first book, a devotional! Because of that, I’m taking every second I can to rest, hopefully including New Years Eve! I plan on wearing a cozy, warm outfit like this one, perfect for a night in with my husband. Happy New Years!”
“New Year’s Eve is usually a night I dress up a lot for: a cocktail dress, sequins, heels, velvet, fur, bold jewelry, lots of texture. The last time I wore a real fancy dress for New Year’s Eve was before I was pregnant, 5 years ago. Well, this year we will be ringing in 2017 at a fancy party dinner and I will be seen in a fun dress, for sure. I was trying different ones on and this teal, long-sleeve piece is dressy enough and has sparkly dots, especially perfect for New Year’s Eve paired with jewel tones and red lips. Happy New Year’s everyone!”
“I was completely inspired by Jennifer Lawrence when she wore a sweater + ballerina skirt on the red carpet. It was such an unexpected pairing that I had to give it a go myself. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Sheela outfit without some tongue-in-cheek fun, now would it? That baby blue sweater, you see? That’s my winter PJ top 🙂 oh, and my tulle skirt? A super stretchy waistband makes it perfect for that New Year’s Eve dinner we’ve got planned.”
“This year I am celebrating New Years in Nashville. It is a huge outdoor celebration and sadly the temperature is expected to be cool. I have searched my wardrobe for a party inspired outfit warm enough to watch Keith Urban ring in 2017. I figure if I can handle the snow in Ottawa I can handle Keith in Nashville. This was my test outfit, I think it works.”
Hey y’all, I’m Monica from Jersey Girl, Texan Heart. This year for New Year’s I’m deciding to relax a little bit and wear a casual look. I usually dress up, but this year has been quite the hectic year I think I need to finish it off by being casual and taking a breather. I hope everyone has a great New Year!
“I love dressing up for New Years. I get to wear all my sparkle and glittery clothing! It’s the one time of year that going all out is expected. These leggings are from Target last year and I have loved wearing them for over the top events. I always pair my sparkle clothing with Brosway jewelry. I hope you stop by my blog and see more of my fun New Years Outfit! Follow on IG and Twitter.”
This sweater is currently sold out, but Sammydress offers it in camel and black. I REALLY want the camel one. I was so so pleased with the quality of this. The length is perfect for leggings, it’s cozy and warm but not itchy- definitely a win. Wearing something like this, especially with over-the-knee boots, makes me feel like I’m dressing up a touch but keeps me just as comfortable as can be.
