Hi loves! I hope you all had a very merry and magical Christmas! Ours was the best Christmas yet!! This was the first year that Josh was old enough to really take an interest in the magic of Santa, and he and Charlie were SO in to it! And little Sam loved the commotion of it all! And now I cannot believe that the start of 2018 is just days away. Where has this year gone?!? All though I could really use 2-3 weeks in between hosting Christmas and hosting New Years Eve (Yes you read that correctly, we are hosting yet again! We are the eternal host/hostess). We have been in non-stop hosting, recovery and hosting again mode since Thanksgiving and Sam’s first birthday party. But I do love this week in between Christmas and New Years when everything is quiet and low key. Let’s all rest up now so we can be our most productive and best selves come January 1st right!?
I always look forward to New Years festivities, especially for dressing up in some metallics, sparkles and/or a chic little black dress. It’s so much fun to dress up and to try a different look or to experiment with different textures than our normal day to day looks. So today I’m sharing 2 New Years Eve ready dresses that are perfect for when the ball drops at midnight.
Leave it to the feminine and flirty dresses of Misa for the most perfect NYE dancing dress! Every time I wear this Misa dress (pictured above) I instantly feel ready to dance and party. I love the gold grommet detailing and the ruffles…oh the ruffles!! 🙂 So perfect for a NYE out. And what says NYE more than a pair of fab metallic pumps that have gold heels! These are an investment but I’ve linked some equally fab metallic shoes above as well as in the scrolling widget below.
This Michael Kors dress is the ultimate NYE dress…body con fit and metallic gold threading! It literally screams “Happy New Year”! I originally saw and loved this Milly dress, but preferred the price point of this Michael Kors dress. And it’s even prettier in person.
Since we are staying in and hosting friends at our house I got this cami (I love the silver metallic!) and plan to wear it with these black velvet pants (already in my closet from a past season and currently on major sale!) and these fab heels.
I can’t wait to ring in 2018!
