I’m sure you are all wondering what outfit I chose to wear for New Year’s Eve. I chose the top portion of outfit #3 with the Gold Stripe Mini Skirt as the bottom portion. BUT! I forgot the most important rule of outfit planning…
The Ruffled Rhinestone Top was dirty but I couldn’t tell until after I had ironed it. So, with some help from Husband, I decided on outfit #4, minus the necklace. I wasn’t able to get very many good pics of the full outfit but here’s the Instagram pic.

So next time I’m outfit planning I will do laundry first!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We spent the day at my Mother’s with most of my family. Christmas dress seems to get more and more casual each year but I like to dress up. This year I wore all J Crew but I think that is pretty much every year.
I mixed up old school with a touch of new school ‘Crew.
Lexington Blazer in Ivory
Taffeta Parlour Skirt in Tartan
Cashmere Tee in Pack Green
Christian Louboutin Simple Pumps in Cranberry
I added a Crystal Lattice Necklace from Etsy.
Here are just a few pictures from Christmas Day.
Have a Great Day!
Husband had another work Christmas party this past weekend so I was excited to get dressed up again. I originally wanted to wear the Chandelier Sweatshirt but Husband was critical of it because it was a sweatshirt. “Oh no. No no no. Um…yeah…no. It’s a sweatshirt.” Ok then, you’ve made your point.
I added my Tipped Gray Lexington Blazer to blend with the lighter colors I was wearing.
As it turns out, the Chandelier Sweatshirt worn with cords or jeans would have fit right in with what all the other ladies were wearing. Embellished on top and jeans or leggings on bottom. Not to say I didn’t love my outfit because I did. I didn’t feel uncomfortable being a little over-dressed either as I felt great and Husband loved it!
I can’t believe Christmas is almost here. I have not finished my shopping and will have to run around here and there all week and spend the weekend wrapping everything. I did wrap a few gifts with my new ribbon and paper from The Container Store. They come out with some beautiful wrapping every year!
Have a Great Day! Thanks for visiting!
Husband’s company had their Holiday party Saturday and I had eagerly been waiting to wear the Gold Stripe Mini Skirt. The weather turned bitterly cold on Thursday but I was still determined to wear this skirt so I tweaked the rest of the outfit to accommodate this.
My entire outfit, from head-to-toe, is all J Crew. The sweater is Cashmere Tee in Black. The shoes are the Collection Sloane Velvet Crisscross Pumps I reviewed here. For my jewelry, I am wearing the Salon Necklace and Bracelet from 2009. I originally had the bracelet in Shore Pink and wore it to the Holiday party back in 2009, here. I eventually sold it because I wanted the bracelet and necklace to match. The tights are also J Crew, the Super-Opaque Tights in Black. I usually grab a extra pair at the end of the season when they are on sale.
I had my nails done at Ulta with OPI GelColor in Onyx Black with a GoldenEye accent nail.
We finished the night taking some friends to one of my favorite bar for a cocktail before heading home.
