Velvety New Year | OOTD

A new year is upon us and we know a fabulous outfit won’t just plan itself. Ha ha! I’m so happy to bring you some New Year Eve inspiration this year! Although what we wear on NYE is important, the focus of this NYE look in how you want to feel. ¬†

While I’m out enjoying my loved ones and bringing in the new year I want to feel carefree and fearless. For me being carefree often equates to being braless. Lol You may be a bit self conscience at first but at least you wont have to spend the hold night readjusting a strapless bra. This greenish black velvet dress is sexy with out showing too much and even a bit mysterious. It has a criss cross strappy back that adds interest to an otherwise simple dress. The dress is one piece so no need to worry about multiple items. All you have left is to add shoes and some simple accessories. Knowing Texas it will either be absolutely freezing or sweltering hot so be prepared to have a jacket of some kind. I actually thrifted the faux fur you see here for about $10. Needless to say I felt so lucky finding a practically new faux fur in black! I couldn’t pass it up.

Lastly, I know it’s tempting to break out a new pair of shoes but for your comfort, choose a tried and true shoe that you’ve broken in already. You won’t want to dance all night if your feet hurt.

Leave me a comment about your favorite New Year Eve Look. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. ¬†Enjoy!

Reset:Day 1

Happy New Year! This is day 1, the day to reset, to begin again, to be better! Yet, by the end of the month, many will have lost their resolve to continue to commit to new habits (New Year Resolutions).

If you don’t want that to be you, try a different approach. Shortly after Thanksgiving I made My 101 Things to do in 1001 days List. It allows me to set short and long term goals over about 2 1/2 years. I can keep my goals right in front of me and continue to feel sense of accomplishment. If for some reason I am not having success in one area, there are still dozens on goals on my list I can do to make progress. Give it a try! Enjoy!
