Oh how ringing in the new year has changed. I remember the days of living in Las Vegas and a bunch of friends getting hotel rooms to stay down on the strip to see the fireworks, and get ungodly unruly until the wee hours of the morning in where we would then grab breakfast and probably have to muster up the strength to then go to work. Thinking about that now just makes my body ache! New Years now involves take-out, probably letting the kids stay up a little later to watch a movie, and maybe...just maybe...Chris and I making it to midnight. But that is not a requirement. 

Honestly, it is a much better time. I had Ace at 22, so the days of partying prior were short, involved fake ID's, and a whole lot of bad ideas. Now the Disney movie just sounds amazing, with a pizza? Oh man, don't tempt me with a good time! 

This dress would actually be perfect for a night out. I wore it to a Christmas party, and am totally in love with it. Velvet and lace with a touch of leather? AND! All my cold weather living ladies, get yourself these tights! They are fleece lined and warm and ridiculously amazing! If you are currently gestating, they make a pair for you too! Just keeping everyone warm one leg at a time! 

What are your plans for New Year's? 


  1. I love this outfit, super fun and chic!

  2. Same. Doubt we make it to midnight with these three. Lol

  3. love this, and your hair is on point!

  4. Obsessed with this dress! Searching for it in my size, now. I need it for my Birthday celebrations!!!

  5. Your night sounds phenomenal! We do something very similar but include our best friends. We don't love next door anymore but they still make the drive. It's worth it! Enjoy!!

  6. Las Vegas Baby....but not for me. I watched one of my favorite movies, Legends of the Fall, made Ginger tea and fell fast asleep. Nice.
