Happy 2016! My first post of the year is dedicated to my last outfit of last year! If you can’t tell from the nighttime pics, these photos were taken only a couple hours before the magic hour on New Year’s Eve. Our plans to get photos earlier in the day didn’t pan out, so after eating a sushi dinner at Suzi’s, one of our favorite local Chinese restaurants, we strolled around downtown and snapped these pics before boarding a midnight cruise on Lake Austin to ring in the New Year.
Sequins or anything that sparkles are a staple for any NYE outfit, so when I rediscovered this navy blue sequin top from Target that I’ve had for years in the depths of my closet (I wore it’s sister in champagne gold for Christmas Eve here), I knew I wanted to bring it out for some celebrating on the last night of the year. After stumbling upon this blue faux fur coat for an unbelievable steal of $60 at Ann Taylor just a few days before NYE, I decided to dress for the midnight hour by keeping my outfit in shades of deep blue and black. The coat is sadly sold out now in the blue (though it wasn’t when I linked it last night!), but it’s still available in a blush beige color. I also wore these black coated pants and these blue suede pumps, both of which have become favorites of mine and definitely some of my most worn pieces this season. To stay warm while we were out on the water, I wore a pair of hot chillys baselayer leggings under my pants. We love these for our snowboarding trips, but I always end up wearing them under my pants or jeans on cold winter days. I’ve had mine for years and worn them over and over in both snow and regular weather conditions, as well as just hanging out around the house staying cozy — they’re absolutely worth the investment!
I hope you’ve had a great first week of the new year! I’ll be talking about a few of my goals (not resolutions!) for 2016 on my next post and would love to hear about some of yours!
