NYE Casual

Tunic:  Cavender's // Leggings:  Ewa Bazaar // Boots:  Dolce Vita (old, similar here)

Everyone, New Year's is right around the corner.  The holidays just flew by!  Today I'm joining a few ladies with Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood for a fun NYE post.  I decided that this year I'm going to keep it a bit casual.  I know that last year I went all out with dresses, and black lace cardigans, but this year I wanted to be relaxed.  It's been a crazy whirlwind of a year.

What did everyone get from Santa this year?  I got so many fun things that I actually needed because now that I don't live with my parents anymore, I need my own things so everyone got me something I really needed.  My parents got me a face cream which is on the pricier side that I wouldn't buy due to my budget and they got me the giant jar which will last me for a long time along with some Burberry and a North Face jacket that still isn't here haha.  I really needed a North Face because where I live, the apartment complex is open so it gets super windy!  Walking the dogs in the morning becomes so unbearably and I can barely open the door because my fingers are that frozen.  The boyfriend also got me a blow off valve for my car (it sounds SO good haha).  For those of you who don't know about my love for cars getting car parts for my birthday, Christmas, and anniversary is the best thing ever haha.

"Hi friends! I’m Emily from Darling, Dearest. The past couple of months have been the most hectic I’ve had, as I wrote my first book, a devotional! Because of that, I’m taking every second I can to rest, hopefully including New Years Eve! I plan on wearing a cozy, warm outfit like this one, perfect for a night in with my husband.  Happy New Years!"

"New Year's Eve is usually a night I dress up a lot for: a cocktail dress, sequins, heels, velvet, fur, bold jewelry, lots of texture. The last time I wore a real fancy dress for New Year's Eve was before I was pregnant, 5 years ago. Well, this year we will be ringing in 2017 at a fancy party dinner and I will be seen in a fun dress, for sure. I was trying different ones on and this teal, long-sleeve piece is dressy enough and has sparkly dots, especially perfect for New Year's Eve paired with jewel tones and red lips. Happy New Year's everyone!"

Sheela from Sheela Writes
"I was completely inspired by Jennifer Lawrence when she wore a sweater + ballerina skirt on the red carpet.  It was such an unexpected pairing that I had to give it a go myself.  Of course, it wouldn’t be a Sheela outfit without some tongue-in-cheek fun, now would it?  That baby blue sweater, you see?  That’s my winter PJ top :) oh, and my tulle skirt?  A super stretchy waistband makes it perfect for that New Year’s Eve dinner we’ve got planned."

Linda from A Labour of Life
"This year I am celebrating New Years in Nashville.  It is a huge outdoor celebration and sadly the temperature is expected to be cool.  I have searched my wardrobe for a party inspired outfit warm enough to watch Keith Urban ring in 2017.  I figure if I can handle the snow in Ottawa I can handle Keith in Nashville. This was my test outfit, I think it works."

Hey y'all, I'm Monica from Jersey Girl, Texan Heart.  This year for New Year's I'm deciding to relax a little bit and wear a casual look.  I usually dress up, but this year has been quite the hectic year I think I need to finish it off by being casual and taking a breather.  I hope everyone has a great New Year!

Lee from Wine and Couture
"I love dressing up for New Years.  I get to wear all my sparkle and glittery clothing!  It's the one time of year that going all out is expected.  These leggings are from Target last year and I have loved wearing them for over the top events.  I always pair my sparkle clothing with Brosway jewelry.  I hope you stop by my blog and see more of my fun New Years Outfit!  Follow on IG and Twitter."
