This is my New Year's Eve skirt that I wore to a party a little while ago. Last New Year's Eve, I had a reunion with one of my good friends from university, Alicia. She came into town, we got all dolled up, went out to my favorite bar and then after 30 minutes (and taking these pictures), I threw up due to food poisoning. My new years' resolution last year was not to throw up in a taxi on the way back home. Hopefully this year will not be as pitiful!
However badly this skirt's track record might be, I still love wearing it every time. This time I decided to go a wee bit less va-va-voom and pair it with a slouchy oatmeal sweater. This sweater gave the overall look a delicious effortlessness - something I always seem to try and strive for but feel like I don't always succeed at.
I loved loved loved wearing this outfit not only for it's ease-factor but because I felt sexy without it being too much or too tight. We ate a huge meal that night and my baggy sweater did the trick to hide all the roast and red velvet cake intake. I decided not to wear any necklaces so that I could show off the skin of my neck/shoulder area - something I normally don't really think about. But it paid off - my boyfriend kept saying how much he loved my "creamy skin". Hehe.
I kept the rest of the outfit clean with simple studs, black accessories, and understated make-up. I let the skirt do all the talking!
Crossing my fingers that I will be able to enjoy New Year's celebrations this year! Not sure what I'm going to wear this year. What are you going to wear?
