It’s almost time to pop some bottles and bring in the new year! Do you have your New Year’s party style together yet? I actually have a couple of outfit ideas but no definitive plans yet, but I’ll share my ideas with you. The first look is a play on a feminine tuxedo vibe. Substitute black pants for sequin leggings for some extra sparkle and keep the top subtle with a simple, white halter top. I know shiny leggings can be a hard look to pull off but adding some sky high booties will elongate your legs. If you’re still not comfortable with leggings, you can swap them out for a sequin skirt. I built the second look around these killer Sam Edelman Kayla boots. I actually have these and I’m dying to pair them with a sexy dress for New Year’s. My outfit will probably look a lot like this one. Add some fur for a little luxe (and warmth) and party the night away. Which look is your favorite?
As 2013 comes to an end, we often find ourselves reflecting on our lives and the events that occurred over the past year. There may be some things we made be proud of, and others, not so much. People love to set goals for the new year as well as lofty resolutions. I used to set resolutions for myself every year but felt very disappointed in myself when I couldn’t keep the resolutions. I found that it was a set up for a sour tone for the rest of the year. So, about two years ago I decided to scrap the resolutions and just try to become more of what I already am. There’s always room for improvement in every aspect of one’s life so I just focused on being a better friend, daughter, wife, doctor, etc. You’ll be surprised how much you can accomplish just by increasing your awareness. Lastly, take advantage of a fresh start by truly making the most of all of the opportunities that are presented to you. By learning to appreciate your current blessings, you will further enjoy the new blessings that are yet to come.
New Year’s Eve is just a week away. Are you party ready? If not, don’t freak out. I’ve got two great outfit ideas for you. This is the biggest party of the year so go out with a bang and wear something extravagant. Go for the gold in a sexy, strapless, gold dress and make it even more luxe with a fur bolero. If your not the flashy type, try a sophisticated jumpsuit with large, sparkly earrings. Either look will help you bring in the new year in style. So, head on out to the stores and take advantage of all the after Christmas sales and find yourself a fabulous ensemble. Feel free to share your looks!
