NYE Looks!

You guys, New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and I haven’t even decided what I am wearing yet! I had a look all set and I ordered it from Nordstrom and AFTER 16 DAYS of it not shipping I finally got the notice that it was cancelled. That was 16 days wasted where I could have been looking for another look! Of course I want to be sparkly, it is NYE duh! I ordered a back up dress like two days before my first option got cancelled just to be safe. I got it last night and finally tried it on… I swear if I lifted a finger my butt cheeks would show, so that is getting returned. I have a third option which may end up being my outfit if I can’t find anything else. I do really like it, I found it on another blogger (@stylethegirl), but I was really wanting to wear my white booties and I can’t with this outfit…. I also ordered ANOTHER dress option BUT it was the last one so I don’t even know if it will ship. Ugh why is this so hard this year?!

Anyway, during mine and Amanda’s Christmas look try on haul (catch up here) we did a couple NYE looks too. Everything is linked below and I have linked some other fun sequin pieces! It’s NYE, sparkles feel like a must!

(This silver dress is so fun and cute but again, too short for me.)

Below are some there fun pieces! (all pics from Nordstrom)

This is the green dress that was too short on me but might work for someone else, and this is my back up skirt! Linked here: Dress | Skirt

Mostly obsessed with these sets from Topshop!! Linked here: Green Top | Green Skirt | Pink Top | Pink Skirt

Sparkle dresses are always a good idea! Linked here: Purple | Blue(ish) | Gold

Lastly I love these fun longer pieces! If you want to go for a more classy and high fashion look, these would be awesome! Linked here: Skirt | Pants

Sequin Statements

Nothing makes a statement like sequins, and I have been unusually obsessed lately (I already have my eye on a sequin jacket for my birthday). I have always wanted to wear something sparkly on New Year’s Eve but never end up getting anything and never end up going anywhere to wear it. This year I was determined! I found the perfect pair of sequin leggings from Target that were only $24.99! I wasn’t so certain of them at first but then I saw a blogger I really like post a picture on Instagram wearing similar ones. I went to Target the next day and bought them. After trying them on I was in love with them! I just love sparkles and wearing them really makes you feel bright and happy.

(My boyfriend saw them hanging up and asked me why I bought disco pants?! He just doesn’t understand!)

Anyways, I had my perfect outfit and finally had plans. We were going to my lovely friend’s, Amanda from Glitter it Gold, and her husband’s house for dinner and drinks. We had amazing burgers, champagne cocktails, and played Cards Against Humanity for like two hours. Finally when it was midnight, Amanda, our friend Stephanie, and I didn’t even realize because we were taking ridiculous videos, until the boys told us it was 12:01. It was a fun night and a perfect way to welcome the new year, with great friends… and a great outfit! Check it out below! I paired my sequin leggings with an off white long loose tank, also recently from Target, a black blazer, black wedge booties by Dolce Vita, and a statement necklace from Charming Charlie.

The Power of Lipstick

Lipstick has been a a big love of mine. I have collected quite a few, my weakness, Mac. When I say quite a few, I mean…

That pile is even missing a few. I fell out of wearing it for awhile because of where I was working, we were only allowed to wear “natural” makeup. Now I’m getting back into them full swing! I don’t know about how other girls feel when they put on lipstick, but for me, I feel different. It is like my lipsticks have powers. I get a new sense of confidence when I am wearing a bright one. It’s an attention grabber. It really is true that when you look good, you feel good. Today I wore my favorite new bright pink Viva Glam Miley by Miley Cyrus.

If I were to ever have my own lipstick line, I would want them to have inspirational names for women like “You Go Girl”, “This Is Your Day”, and “You Got This”. They would give a little more confidence when you wear them and every time you reapply.

Here is to having confidence and pretty lips!
