Y’all, I know it’s not even Christmas yet (and thank God because this Christmas shopping list seems to keep getting longer…), but I thought we’d break things up a bit and talk New Year’s Eve. I love Christmas like a crazed five year old or a giant adult elf named Buddy, and after the 25th has passed, the only thing that keeps me from having the serious post-holiday blues is looking forward to New Year’s Eve. (I usually just go ahead and save those blues for January. Good plan.)
Normally we spend New Year’s Eve at Eric’s family’s cabin in the mountains, so sparkles and fun dresses are far from my mind. I trade in the disco ball sequins for faux fur and so many layers. But this year, we’re headed to the desert to ring in the new year, and I couldn’t be more excited. There’s no place like Palm Springs to break out a sequin or two!
I posted this dress last year on the blog for New Year’s Eve, but I figured since it’s my favorite NYE dress ever, why not rework it for another go ’round? This year I’m planning on pairing it with an easy (hint: easy to wear all night) bootie and a leather jacket to tone it down a smidge. The silver version is sadly no longer available, but this year there’s a pretty, pretty new burgundy version in town.
Admittedly this dress is a total investment, so I’m linking a few more similar styles below. And now let’s get back to Christmas, shall we? I’m so so excited that my favorite day is almost here!
