Outfit Inspiration for New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve gives us reason to dress up and step out in anything that sparkles and shines!  Dress to impress and stand out in the party crowd!  Whether you’re staying indoors or braving the elements outdoors, I’m taking the guesswork out of what to wear for NYE!

I love New Year’s Eve!  It’s a great time to reflect on the past year and to think of ways to make next year even better.   It’s a clean slate – a new year to  put together a goal, allow ourselves to grow, push our limits, and look back at the end of the year to see how much we have accomplished in 365 days.

Another reason I enjoy New Year’s Eve is the chance to celebrate the coming year with people I love -whether it be friends, family, or even a furry friend!  To me, welcoming the year means enjoying good ole’ family traditions, eating bountiful meals, and listening to the same family story for the 100th time (yes, you’re not the only one to endure Uncle Bob’s story) – oh the joy of being with loved ones! 

Lastly, I love an excuse to dress to the nines and getting all dolled up!  Having my hair and makeup done is such a treat (by the way, for the DIYers out there, read my tips on how to style your hair for NYE here)!  It’s the perfect occasion to wear that trendy, sparkly dress you’ve been eyeing for a while!  Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone!  This is the time to shine and wear something unexpected!
