New Years!

Hello!  How was everyone’s Christmas?  Mine was wonderful and I got everything I asked for and more!  It was a very nice time off of work and perfect time to spend time with family.

Can you believe that it’s almost 2019?  That’s crazy!  I feel like this year just flew by and I don’t remember what happened!  Well now that it’s almost New Years Eve and I know people have HUGE parties.  I for one, do not.  I like celebrating, until like 10 pm, then I want to be in my own apartment.  But either way, here are some awesome desserts, drinks, and decor that will give you inspiration for your New Years Party!  Enjoy and here’s to a wonderful New Year!

Just a few more days till Christmas!! Aahhh! Are you ready! I think I am set. Just have to get the food for the parties, but I didn’t want to buy it too early. Now that the present shopping is done, the house is decorated, the cookies baked, it’s time to think about what you are going to wear to the get-together’s. What? You don’t know yet? Well, Lauren and I are here to help! We put together a few different outfits that will hopefully inspire you with pieces you already own.

First, we took the same black skirt and styled it two different ways. I wore it with a blue and black print flowy shirt, black tights and boots. I added this blue/black tweed jacket which I found for $7 at a local thrift store. Lauren is so jealous!

To style, take a basic black skirt, black tights and boots, and match it with a print top and cute jacket or coat. I chose blue and black because I wanted to use my ‘new’ jacket, but you could use any color combination.

Here is Lauren in the same black skirt.  Hello.  Lauren speaking.  I took this black skirt and added a cream lace top that I purchased from the coast.  I put a cream tank top under the top and a chain and rhinestone layered necklace.  To finish the look, I wore my black quilted boots that I absolutely adore!  This look is young and cute and I could wear this to every party that I go to.

My second look for Christmas is a little more casual. I paired white jeans, (yes, you can wear them after Labor Day :)), with a soft grey sweater. I like how this sweater has a drawstring to gather the top and also ribbing around the wrists and waist. I gives it a little dressier look. I added a pearl and silver long necklace and grey flats. By the way, this is where Chica starts photo-bombing all my pictures. LOL!

If it’s too cold for flats were you live, try skinny jeans and boots.

My second outfit is a blue dress that I bought from Forever 21 early last year.  I love how it looks and it is really comfortable.  I added some brown boots that I bought from a local store that look very similar to my black boots.  They are so comfortable!

Also, is it time to open presents yet?

Fashion 2015 Lauren Blue Dress and Boots

This look is a red shirt-dress from Walmart. It is still available online and it’s only $10! Here is the link. It has tiny white polka-dots all over. I actually found this one in the store, but when I asked, the salesperson told me it was a return from an online order. I paired it with black footless tights and black flats. I think the red makes it more festive.

My third outfit also includes the color red!  I have a pair of red skinny jeans that I wear with just about anything that I can match them to.  I wore this with a cream shirt that has black lace on the sleeves that was originally Haley’s that I took when she didn’t want it anymore.    I wore it with my favorite black boots and a black and silver flower necklace.

Here are a couple more just so you can see Chica! This is simple too. Grey jeans and a white sparkly top. Again, you could use boots instead. I would use my grey boots, except they are wrapped up under the tree right now! A silver bracelet and earrings and you are set!

Fashion 2015 Pam Grey Jeans White Top

My final outfit is one that is full of comfort.  I have a pair of jeans that I purchased from Maurices and a grey shirt.  I added grey shoes and “borrowed” Haley’s grey backpack to complete the look.

And why I am laughing so hard you may ask?  Kiara, the cuddly cat if you remember from an earlier post, was standing on an end table and I was calling her.  Well, mom snapped the picture as I was calling her and the picture turned out funny and the picture that you see before you is the result of us laughing.  LOL!

My last one is a long grey sleeveless dress with a turquoise sweatshirt over the top. The dress is actually for summer, but with the dark color, it works for winter too. This is a bit more casual, but oh so comfy! Black boots and a big black bag finish the look. (Do you see the other photo bomber in the corner?)

Well, I hope this gives you some ideas for festive outfits for your holiday get-togethers! Maybe you will find a new favorite outfit! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
