We’re having a little house party for New Year’s Eve, which I’m getting really excited about. I don’t usually host parties (see my latest post), but this year I decided it was about time. I’m looking forward to just being with our friends, even though I don’t have any decor, will be throwing together last minute apps, and ya know…definitely won’t have the house scrubbed clean. I’m being super-casual about this (or trying to be).
So, I had been thinking about what to wear. With it being in our home, and me feeling the whole relaxed thing, I decided on jeans. I’ve got a pair of 501s that I’ve been living in, and I liked the idea of dressing them up. I mean, it’ll be NYE. I don’t care if I’m laying half-asleep on the couch with my husband and some takeout…there has to be some sparkle in some shape or form on my person.
That’s where a little sequin tank came in to play. Not being one who likes to freeze her buns off (even in the name of fash-un), I layered it over a turtleneck, added on a bear of a coat aaaand wore socks with my heels. I won’t have to be outside much on NYE, but some of you may, and I wanted to show you how I’d make this whole outfit more wearable in the cold…
How To Wear Your Favorite Jeans On New Year’s Eve
tank: Sequin Cami (wearing s) – fun little top I like to layer over a black turtleneck.
turtleneck: Tissue Turtleneck T-shirt (TTS, wearing S, black) – my favorite turtleneck. I have it in grey, too.
coat: Faux Fur Coat (wearing M, but could have done normal S) – the color I am wearing is sold out (boo hoo), but I just came across this Boxgrove Wine Faux Fur Coat from Boden…and it’s currently on sale! I may even like it a bit better, b/c it’s shorter.
jeans: Levi’s 501 Original Fit Jean (wearing 26) – I’ve found that Levi’s fit me a bit better if I go down a size, but it may be that I am sorta between a 2 and 4, so. They do tend to stretch out throughout the day, if that helps.
shoes: Strappy Heeled Sandals (silver, TTS) – nothing better than a sparkly shoe for NYE. These come in a sparkly lavender, too.
socks: Embellished Ankle Socks – Topshop has these studded ankle socks and here are studded crew socks (they’d be warmer)
bag: Faux Fur Top Handle Satchel – the handle is furry. haha! I love it…b/c it’s something a little different.
earrings: Sugarfix Icicle Drop Earrings – the Baublebar line at Target is awesome. I grabbed these earrings for the Winter season…and they’re perfect. I wear them with dressed up or down.
Happy (almost) NYE!
