Versatile New Year’s Eve Outfit Idea

outfit ideas new years eve

Hey gals (and guys)! I’m sitting here writing this in 70 degree weather on my balcony in Dallas. Texas weather never ceases to amaze me. I love warm temperatures and this is exactly why I moved to Dallas in the first place. This New Year’s Eve weekend will be equally warm so I’ve been trying to find an outfit that looks festive but isn’t going to burn me up. SheIn sent me this really cute leather and boucle jacket to wear for New Year’s Eve!

I love this New Year’s Eve outfit because it’s versatile and still stylish! The pearl and gold necklace is from Chico’s (gift from my future sister-in-law) and adds so much class to the outfit. It really compliments the jacket too. When I’m shopping, I try to buy things that are in the same style realm. For example, my closet is inspired by classic style icons like Jackie Kennedy and updated with a few trendy pieces. This is the perfect example of those styles mixing flawlessly!

This will be the first time I’ve spent New Year’s Eve in Dallas! If you’re local to the Dallas area, leave me a comment with great events and places to celebrate! Last year, I spent it with my boyfriend and his family and we had a blast! Unfortunately, a few of us (including me) nodded off a few minutes before midnight. I know, we’re lame. To bring in 2017, my boyfriend David and I are spending it together!

What are your New Year’s Eve plans to bring in 2017? Any resolutions? I’m still working on my resolutions for the year but so far, I’m hoping to start a daily devotional and lose 10 pounds by spring. I’m going to be testing out a few weight loss supplements in the next few months, so be sure to look out for those! Enjoy your New Year’s Eve!

The Power of Pastels

pastel_colorsYesterday was a perfect day for sporting pastel colors. It was grocery shopping day and to add some life to an otherwise dull event, I decided the only sensible solution was to look cute. In this outfit, it literally makes me glow because it’s so bright with pastel colors and the sun reflecting off of them!

Like I’ve said in previous posts, in my town you can go pretty much anywhere in sweats or jeans and a t-shirt. I still like to dress up a little more because it’s good for my mental health and self-confidence.

For this outfit, I’m wearing a New York & Company pastel purple top, white J Crew shorts, Rampage sandals, gold Aldo ring, and a New York & Company necklace. Everything I found on clearance in the past year. I can’t guarantee that these things are still available so I’ve found a few other items that are comparable and affordable.

My biggest tip though? Wait for everything to be cut down to at least 50% off. I never buy full priced items unless it’s a staple piece that I want to last for a really long time. With tops and jewelry like what I’m wearing, you can afford to be a little more picky with how much you spend because before you know it the trend will be over and you didn’t waste a lot of your money.
