While this cute little two-piece number would have been perfect for Thursday night, I’m being honest when I tell you that I spent New Year’s Eve on the couch watching a Peter Pan movie while wearing my pajamas.
While this look may be more on the casual side for the dressiest night of the year, it’s simple enough that it can be worn to more occasions than a big night out.
(I even wore it recently to Houston’s Blog Societies brunch. Check out Jaclyn’s fun post about it for more!)
With such a busy print in the top, I opted for a simple black clutch (& neutral but sparkly jewels) to complete the look.
Remember above when I mentioned I was going to talk about some resolutions for 2016? Well here I am, talking new year’s resolutions!
The google dictionary definition of a resolution is “a firm decision to do – or not to do something.” While most resolutions aren’t very “firm,” (the whole go-to the gym thing usually lasts only 2 months for me!) I’m hoping that I stay firm to the resolutions I’m sharing below!
- I say this pretty much every single year. If you read my travel guide page up above, you’ll see that I’m either insanely passionate or freakishly obsessed about traveling as much as I possibly can. Traveling, exploring new places and opening yourself up to new & different things is good for the soul. I hope to feed my soul this year & travel as much as I possibly can. (Even if it’s just a 3 hour trip away!) Patrick and I have agreed that 2016 is our year to tackle as much of this glorious earth as we can! Wish us luck! (I have a knack for planning things that sometimes don’t end up happening ….. oops!)
- This is pretty much on everyone’s New Year Resolution list, right? In 2016 I’m hoping to cut out my unnecessary spending – only buying clothing items that either are versatile, gorgeous (and) makes me feel gorgeous, or are absolutely necessary/needs. I was also pretty good at the whole avoiding Starbucks “unless I was in absolute desperation” thing last year. I can probably count on my fingers & toes the amount of times I actually went in 2015! Score! We’re also hoping to cut down on our guilty pleasure of going out to eat all the time. (Sorry Torchy’s Tacos!) Gotta save for all those fabulous trips I plan on taking! – What tips & tricks do you guys have to save $$ here & there?
- Another common resolution. I’m going to try as hard as I possibly can to avoid the chips & crackers section of the grocery store this year. Those two aisles are my ultimate weakness!! It’s funny because when I don’t have snacks around – I don’t miss them. But when they ARE around I can’t stop.
