Christmas is done, on to the next Holiday – New Year’s Eve! I still don’t know if I have plans and if I don’t, that’s alright, too. If I do end up going out, I have the perfect outfit ready to go. I got this cute, on trend, pleated, metallic skirt from Express for Christmas. Okay, so actually I got it in the big sales the day AFTER Christmas, but let’s not be nitpicky, ‘kay? I got the black heels there as well. I should have worn nylons or gone bare-legged so you could see the way the heels are that ‘cage’ type, but I would be wearing this outfit with tights, so I wanted to be true to how I would style it.
As I showed on our Instagram page the other day, I would wear this skirt two ways; as a flirty New Year’s Eve skirt, or as a comfy, running errands skirt. In the first few pictures, I’m wearing the comfy version. I love my new Wildfox sweatshirt. Pretty sure I’ve been wearing it 24/7 since Christmas. It’s the softest sweatshirt I’ve worn in years. It’s exactly the right weight to throw on over a t-shirt or a tank. It’s downright perfect — and I’m not a gusher.
First up – the skirt in all its metallic and pleated glory–
You can wear the skirt with sneaks like I did above, or a nice boot, even an over-the-knee one. I like all the possibilities.
Next we’re on to the outfit I’d wear for NYE – or a nice date after the holidays have passed. I’ve paired the skirt with a tank that has a little bit of bling on it. You could wear a black shirt, or t-shirt, or tank like I did and it would still be elegant. The focus here should be on the skirt. Be careful though! I learned the hard way that the skirt is a little see-through when you’re taking pics. (Not showing you those pics! HA!)
I thought it would be fun to play with the photobooth props. How cute are they? Let us know what your NYE outfit will be or if you’re going to try a comfy skirt combo. Hashtag it on insta with #comfyskirtlove. We’ll be looking for it!
