New Year’s Eve is the one night a year that it’s socially acceptable to wear sequins from head to toe, in my book at least and most years I take FULL advantage of this occasion. If you are headed to a party, these party pants (which are actually leggings) are such a fun and comfortable option. Don’t worry I took them for a test run and they are dance proof so busting a dance move or two in these bad boys won’t be an issue!
While sequins are a fun and festive New Year’s tradition, I know that they aren’t for everyone. So if you want to ditch the sequins and still get dressed up for the occasion, there are plenty of ways to do so! I’ve styled 4 different outfit choices below that will add a little bit of sparkle for the big night. I’d love to hear your favorite out of the bunch!

I am keeping it short and sweet today on account that I am battling a cold and this Benadryl is going to make me start dozing off. So if you see a few grammatical errors or something that doesn’t make any sense, I chalk it up to the drugs 😉
ChicwIsh is a brand that I have talked about multiple times on the blog, but in case you are new around here or have yet to hear about them, Chicwish is an online boutique with some of the cutest, on trend pieces! Almost all of my recent event wear has come from them. They are currently running their end of the year sale so on top of everything being 15% off, you get to take an additional 20% off with code NYE20! Both my top and skirt are from there and with the discounted pricing, each one is only $36! I am wearing a size extra small in the skirt and it is pretty darn skimpy so if you are in between sizes I would suggest sizing up. If skimpy is what you are going for this New Year’s Eve (hey, no judgement here!), than you know what to do!
I love the lace-up detail of the skirt and since I was already going trend crazy with the skirt, another bell sleeve top seemed like the perfect combo. If you have checked my blog or Instagram lately than you know that I’ve been wearing bell sleeves like they are going out of style. So much so I still have a few more to share with you guys! I actually picked up a bell sleeve dress today and had to rationalize with myself for a good 10 minutes why I did NOT need yet another bell sleeve piece of clothing.
If you have yet to decide what you are wearing for New Year’s Eve, there is still time to snag something and have it here by the big day if you order today! I’ve rounded up a few of my other favorite looks from Chicwish below and have an entire page of outfit inspiration here as well.
*I just want to mention that this post is NOT sponsored in any way. I rave about Chicwish all of the time so I wanted to highlight some of their great pieces for the New Year!*
I have been dying to show you guys this look for months now and New Years Eve inspiration seemed like the perfect time to do so! My love for jumpsuits runs VERY deep. If you search “jumpsuit” on the blog’s sidebar you will find several different posts sharing my love for them and why they are perfect for just about every single event. If you are looking for just a few reasons why they are hands down my favorite piece of clothing, check out this post here.
I first wore this jumpsuit for my first night at New York Fashion Week. I felt exactly like Carrie Bradshaw and after receiving several compliments on my look, I felt accomplished for deciding to wear such a bold, chic look. We tend to want to stick to what we know. And more often than not, play it extremely safe. I dare you this New Years to make a statement! Ring in the New Year with a new you, or at least a new and exciting outfit 😉 I’ve rounded up a few of the best for this special night (all under $100) below!
Oh deer I can’t believe Christmas has come and gone just like that! I hope all of you were able to enjoy some time off with friends and family. This was the first year since I’ve been born that we did not celebrate Christmas morning in our house. We road tripped to my grandparents house and spent the weekend with my mom’s side of the family in East Texas. It was a relaxing, pajama wearing, face stuffing weekend and I loved every minute of it!
Did anyone else get cash or gift cards for Christmas? If you are anything like me, than they are probably burning a big ol’ hole in your pocket. What is money for if not to spend after all? 😉 If you didn’t get everything you were hoping for for Christmas or just want to treat yourself to something nice, end of year sales are the best time to do so! I’ve rounded up a few of the best (and my personal favorite) sale items to help you with your shopping needs below.
Not only is it the best time to shop the sales, it’s also a great time to stock up on Christmas items for next year. This top has been a favorite of mine this year and it is only $19. I wore it on Christmas and several of my family members loved it so much they snatched it up for next year!
With only 2 days until Christmas, the holiday looks are in full effect around here. I tend to jump on new trends and wear them like they are going out of style which is completely the case with all of these bell sleeve tops. I seriously can’t get enough of them! I have about 4 other looks coming to the blog that all have bell sleeves and a lot of them have mini skirts too.
I love adding leather into my wardrobe when the cooler weather hits. Leather mini skirts just up the sass level of an outfit. For a night out, holiday party or New Years Eve, leather mini skirts are a great way to add a fun and festive factor. Go against the norm and try an alternative color to black. My personal favorite for the holiday season, is red or burgundy like this one that I am wearing.
I am off to a Christmas brunch with the ladies in my family. It’s a tradition that we do every year and it’s one of my favorites! After that will be a full day of wrapping presents because I haven’t even started. I brought all of my presents to my parents house so that I can steal mama’s wrapping paper 🙂
If you are looking for the perfect outfit for the holidays, whether it is for Christmas, a holiday party, or New Year’s Eve, I’ve got an entire Holiday Look page to help you get inspired.
