Almost vacation! Before we get into today’s dazzling party outfits, a couple of notes: this is my last workday before Christmas (and really, I’m going to bounce early and head back to the pop-up vintage store with my friend) and until Monday, January 5th, posting will be kind of light. I’ll have a general holiday update between Christmas and New Year’s, and you should also keep an eyeball out for my annual goals wrap-up. And I’ve ALSO been meaning to share a couple of Friendsgiving recipes with you, so I’m not totally leaving the internet after all.
Anyhoodle, all of that is coming later. While we relax before Christmas, let’s look ahead to the sparkliest of holidays: New Year’s Eve! I, personally, don’t wear a ton of glitter on this particular day because we tend to do low-key celebrations at home with a small group of people, but in my fantasy life, I bling it out. (In this imaginary world I’m also friends with Kate Middleton and we share clothes. And I can teleport.) This year I’ll probably end up doing my usual blouse-and-statement-necklace combination, which can be a lot of fun, but for those of you who are dressing up a little more and need to buy some things, I have outfit inspiration.
I’m going to cheat this time and say that my favorite item is the whole outfit. Ha ha. The dress was the first thing I found, and while it might not be the most interesting thing on its own, it’s the perfect blank slate. You can pair it with dark colors (black and blue are so chic together) and red lips for a glamorous look, as above, or you can subconsciously be inspired by Gryffindor and go a little brighter:
My second favorite thing today is the shoes. They’re totally impractical and I bet if I ever owned them I’d only wear them a few times, but they’re like a party on your feet. And I actually can’t remember the last time I had red shoes in my closet, so that needs to change. Honorable mentions to both of the statement necklaces, because I think they make the biggest difference in the styling. I wouldn’t mind either of them showing up in my stocking on Thursday, JUST SAYING.
What are your New Year’s plans? Are you hitting the down or staying in? What’s your favorite thing here? Also, I hope you have a delightful holiday break! Is your shopping done? Wrapping? Have you peeked under the tree? Safe travels, have fun celebrating, and I’ll chat with you again after Christmas!
