New Year’s Eve was my least favorite holiday until about two years ago. Every year we visit my mom in Charleston, South Carolina and two years ago, after having made no plans for the evening whatsoever, stumbled into what is probably the busiest restaurant in the city and luckily found a seat at the bar. We chatted all night with the bartender, enjoyed delicious food, and actually managed to stay awake past midnight for the first time in the three years we had been together. Now, every year, we go back to the same restaurant, talk to the same bartender, and do our best to stay up for the New Year’s kiss.
I’m all about the subtle sparkle so here are a few outfit ideas that I have in my head for this year. I’m not big on “sexy” so these little black dresses are the perfect way for me to show a little skin and feel festive, while not being entirely out of my comfort zone. I also love that they would work for other special occasion besides New Year’s. I wanted to add a little sparkle so having something like glittery shoes or a pop of bronze polish says “holiday” without being overkill.
Do you have big plans for New Year’s Eve? What are you wearing?
