I am getting ready to pop some champagne, dance on some tables + SPARKLE ✨ OK…maybe not dance on tables hehe…we will be having a quiet night at home but I am for sure ready to sparkle + what better way to do that than with a chic sequin skirt!
I have been wanting to pull off a sequin skirt for years + figured NYE is the perfect time to go for it! The key with a sparkly sequin number like this one is to let it take center stage + not overdo it with the other accessories.
I paired this skirt with a simple black chiffon camisole (to not overdo it with the sparkle) + a fuzzy jacket since whether you are in LA, NY, Vegas, Miami or anywhere else, NYE tends to get chilly + I am always cold so this jacket is style while also cozy.
I went simple with my heels + bag. You can never go wrong with black pumps + a classic Chanel!
I feel every gal should invest in a classic Chanel flap bag (they retain value if you ever want to sell it) + they match with everything. I feel the same way about black pointed toe pumps. I have never put on an outfit that black pointed toe pumps couldn’t match perfectly with.
Guess what is just around the corner…Valentine’s Day!! Normally I am not a lover of the holiday…well except for yummy chocolate + the ability to wear head to toe pink or red 😉 But this year I am excited for the day of love because Mike + I will be in Disney celebrating my birthday, our anniversary and Valentine’s Day! With major milestones like that, it means plenty of date nights so I need to switch things up from the traditional LBD I typically go for (which I love…trust me) :p
The perfect way to switch your date night look up? With some velvet + leather (or faux leather in this case) of course!!
ICYMI – I have been SWOONING over velvet for the past few months. Whether it is a dress, a top or even a skirt or bottoms (even shoes)…velvet has been my go to this season so it makes sense I would extend this to my date night look for Valentine’s Day as well.
I decided to pair this velvet tank with my fav fuzzy jacket that is a great alternative to a blazer or moto jacket (and it gives ya the warm + fuzzies hehe) 🙂
I rounded up some of my favorite velvet tanks below along with two similar fuzzy jackets that you will live in for the rest of the season!
Now I have a confession for ya…I LIVE for these Hue Leatherette Leggings. For years these have been my go-to for date night, girl’s night + beyond during the cooler winter months because sometimes skirts + dresses aren’t doable when a gal is freezing (or may not want to shave let’s be honest haha :p)
These faux leather leggings fit every body type like a glove, suck it all in (because sometimes we need that haha) + accentuates your booty – definitely a favorite with my bf hehe!
Hue is a great brand and I love how their items fit well + are great quality (also relatively affordable compared to Spanx etc).
My bag is Gucci and is a great mini bag to wear out for date night + beyond. It fits your keys, lipgloss, credit card + more, plus with the chain strap you can wear it as a cross body or shoulder bag or even a clutch with tucking the chain in!
These silver gladiator heels are great for year round wear + are pretty comfortable for wherever the night takes you.
2 0 1 7 is coming to a close + while I am excited for all 2018 has to offer, I am reminiscing about the amazing year I just had. From finding my soul mate to traveling internationally, 2017 has been pretty awesome if I say so myself.
If you told me last year at this time that I would find my partner in crime, travel to London + Paris, buy my first Chanel AND get my first Mercedes, I would say NO WAY…but as 2017 ends tomorrow I am beyond happy that it is all true. I couldn’t have asked for a better year, seriously and with 2018 off to a bright start, it’s time to think about what to wear for tomorrow’s midnight countdown!
I am still in London with Mike so I am most likely not wearing a dress because it is FREEZING here currently, but I will for sure be rocking this fuzzy jacket and sparkle Betsey Johnson platform heels (because it wouldn’t be NYE without a little sparkle).
My velvet obsession has extended well past Thanksgiving and Christmas and now it is perfect for NYE. I will be wearing velvet tomorrow (a top) as a cold alternative to the dress I am wearing here. Old Navy has continued to be my go-to for holiday style because of it’s selection and price!
This fuzzy jacket is another obsession of mine. Any warm + fuzzy jacket is a friend of mine. I found two alternatives below (one is under $40, the other is a bit pricier at $180) both are super stylish for winter weather + events!
My heels are currently on sale at Macy’s + are the PERFECT shoe to wear for NYE, Valentine’s Day, your Birthday and beyond…they sparkle + are comfy…I call that a WIN!
