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…
Make sure your clothes are CLEAN!
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.

I accessorized with my Kate Spade Pop, Fizz, Clink Idiom Bangle, C. Wonder Stencil Initial Letter Cuff and J Crew Crystal Shimmer Earrings.
So next time I’m outfit planning I will do laundry first!
Have a Great Day!
We’ve been invited to a New Year’s Eve party and the dress requested is “Black and White”. You might as well have told me to wear a potato sack. I know it’s classy and can be chic but for someone who likes color and who already had her outfit picked out I am in a bit of a dilemma.
Here’s what I’ve put together on my Stylebook app of items I already own. I have some dressy wool black J Crew shorts but Husband nixed those so pants it is.
1) J Crew Schoolboy Blazer in Black, J Crew Stretch Perfect Shirt, Talbots Satin Pants, Sloane Velvet Crisscross Pumps, Grande Crystal Drops Necklace
2) J Crew Schoolboy Blazer in Black, J Crew Tipped Silk Tee in Windowpane, Talbots Satin Pants, Sloane Velvet Crisscross Pumps
3) J Crew Sequin Shawl Collar Sweater, J Crew Ruffled Rhinestone Top, Talbots Satin Pants, Sloane Velvet Crisscross Pumps
4) J Crew Schoolboy Blazer in Black, Kate Spade Shannon Top, Talbots Satin Pants, Sloane Velvet Crisscross Pumps
So I need your help. Which outfit should I wear? I haven’t put any of these on together so the Schoolboy Blazer may not work with the Satin Pants or the Satin Pants not go with the Sloane Velvet Pumps.
Do you have any other ideas for Black and White outfits? I have the Scalloped Dress in Black and the Fluted Skirt in Double Crepe in Black but would definitely wear tights with either of them. Of course, my original outfit was built around the Gold Stripe Mini Skirt
I am in some serious love with the Dorado Necklace. I was able to find it while in California and cannot stop wearing it. It truly goes with almost everything. It probably helps that I have been wearing darker neutral colors but I’m sure I’d figure out a way to wear this necklace with bright colors too.
I wore this last week to work and then the salon for highlights and a cut. The Drapey Crepe Henley Tunic is so easy to put on and go. I have Black and Ivory and was able to score the Navy on sale. The Ankle Toothpick Jeans in Dolphin Gray are another favorite and serious workhorse in my closet. The booties are Christian Louboutin Melisa and were something I’ve been saving up to add to my closet. They have a hidden wedge and slight platform making them comfortable for all day, and night, wear. I finished this look with my Kate Spade and C. Wonder bracelets and my Kate Spade Ring. The ring is something I’ve been putting on every time I leave the house.
And, of course, I had a pretty good hair day, the day of the salon. I added a little product and let it air dry. Apparently, this is the natural wave my stylist keeps mentioning to me.
An HOA meeting on Monday was enough for me to put on something else besides a tee and boyfriend jeans. I debated on getting another pair of the Gray Toothpick Jeans but after trying on the Toothpick Ankle Jean in Coated Denim
I decided on those. With my Drapey Crepe Tunics in the laundry I settled on the Tippi Sweater in Apple Print from a few seasons ago. I topped it with my Schoolboy Blazer in Black
(10 Petite is the perfect fit for me) and put the Darby Loafers in Calf-Hair on my feet.
The Dorado Necklace looks really good against the Apple Print, don’t you think?
This is such a great necklace. I hope it isn’t just an in-store only because it would be great if all of you could have one too!
Have a Great Day!
