Winter Style: New Year's Eve Outfit



Does anyone actually go to New Year's Eve parties?

I've honestly never been invited to a New Year's Eve party, not even before I had kids with a bedtime before midnight.  What does one wear to a New Year's Eve party?

Well, this is what I'd wear.

We are actually thinking about having a New Year's gathering, we'll call it, this year.  I really want to have a game night, and isn't New Year's Eve a good excuse?  Especially with young kids, because we could do it early in the evening, have New-Year's-Eve type foods, and quit in time to get the kids in bed - and no one will think we're lame, because they will be leaving to put their kids in bed too.  See how that works?

And here I am, writing this ahead of time to schedule for the day before New Year's Eve, and I don't know if we're really going to get our act together enough to get some people over here! I should get going on it.

Earrings: ?? Probably Charlotte Russe, probably 7 years ago?  When I like an article of clothing or accessory, it stays with me.
Shirt: Forever21, bought when I was pregnant one of those times, because this is long and stretchy and can be bunched up to fit around a belly.
Sparkly Sweater: Forever21, and I had no idea how cute it would be when I ordered it a few years ago.  It's a winter holiday staple, whether we are talking Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's.  It's never leaving my closet.
Leather-paneled leggings: Target, a couple years ago.
Socks: Target
Boots: JustFab

Do you do anything special for New Year's Eve?

Forever 21 for the win for maternity clothes. Although their sizing throws me off I don't mind spending a little since I can wear it after baby too. No New Years plans over here. Just being lazy bums but I can't say I mind it a bit. Happy 2017 mam.

LOVE those leggings. We have never done anything amazing for NYE either but we do want to host a fun event next year for kids and adults (think black, gold, and sparkles). Tonight I need to pick up my oldest and my husband from the airport and I am praying their plane doesn't delay any further since Nick is preaching in the morning ;/ Happy Happy New Year's!

Too cute! We are hanging out in our jammies listening to the neighborhood fireworks and trying to convince our littles that the loud noises they are hearing are not scary. #momlife :)

We never do anything for New Year's either, but I kind of like it that way. We stay home, maybe play a game, watch a show, and then I usually fall asleep on the couch by 9:30. haha. But you know, it's pretty great. Though I do think it would be fun to have an excuse to dress up to go somewhere, it just doesn't happen for us! I hope you all enjoyed your gathering if you had one and if not that you still had fun! :)

I love your outfit! You have such great style. I used to go to parties but now we just hang out with Chris' family because his dad's birthday is on New Year's Eve.

It was fun reading the title first and then guessing what you were going to be wearing! I actually guessed something more white and flowy for some reason. I love how you have such a range of styles! I went to fun New Year's Eve parties as a single-in high school and then with some girlfriends after college. Lots of movie marathons and good food. And we used to do fondue every year when I was younger, fun tradition! But back at my parents' I feel like I don't have friends anymore and usually end up falling asleep on the couch. Right now it is just a family holiday but maybe in another 10 years when the kids are older, we'll feel like partying again. ;) There are actually fireworks in every neighborhood here so sometimes I think it would be fun to go outside and see them, but also probably very loud and smoky.

I don't know if it is my browser or not, but your images are so large that I can't view the whole thing at once. Not that I am studying too closely. ;) Just that I would enjoy seeing the whole thing without scrolling! Your pictures are so pretty, though!

That's good feedback, thanks Elizabeth! My blog format is supposed to size them down but I worry it's still too wide sometimes, so I might adjust that next time!

Callie said...

Ah, thanks Felicia! Ah, well birthday celebration/New Year combos would've fun too! I say that counts as a NYE party. 😉

We did end up having a game night, and it was nice because it ended early enough to still cuddle on the couch and watch a movie before midnight! I don't know if we will do one every year, but it was nice having something to do for NYE this year!

Callie said...

I get that! We don't get many fireworks here, which is nice, but when I was a kid we used to bang on pots and pans outside at midnight, haha! We can get away with that in rural areas. 😉

Callie said...

Yes, host an event next year! I want to take notes. You always seem to have the hospitality thing down!

Lazy New Year's Eves are some of the best I think!
