And just like that, the holiday season is coming to a close!
I can't believe how quickly Christmas came and went, but at the same time, I can't believe that next week we will be moving into 2017. I'm going to sound like such an old person saying this, but it feels like just yesterday we were planning our anniversary trip and preparing for the upcoming holidays. While I'm in disbelief that this year is already ending, it's also so crazy to think about all of the life changes we experienced this year--some exciting like buying and moving into our new home, some sad like losing two of our beloved grandparents, some challenging, but all memorable and special in their own way. I'm excited to celebrate another wonderful year coming to a close and excited about what 2017 will hold.
This New Year's weekend, we will be celebrating at home in Austin with our close friends, and while we don't have our exact New Year's Eve plans figured out just yet, I do have the perfect outfit in mind featuring this shimmering one shoulder velvet top from Nordstrom! I initially purchased this top when I was looking for something new and fun to wear for my office Christmas party. I wanted something that would fit the casual environment but would also be festive and cute for a night out, so when I found this Ten Sixty Sherman top in my favorite color, saw it was available in store at my local Nordstrom, and was under $40, I knew it was just what I was looking for!
**P.S.A: I just saw this top is in stock and 50% off, but hurry it won't last long!!**
I paired this top with my go-to petite friendly black skinnies from Banana Republic, some classic black leather pumps, and sparkly statement drop earrings. I love this look because it combines all of my favorite features in one outfit: it's comfortable, casual, trendy, chic, and budget friendly! I love that I could see myself dressing this top more casually for chilly winter days, or more dressy for spring. I could also pair this top with some light wash jeans for a flirty date night!
So whatever this weekend and this new year brings, I will be ready!
However you're celebrating this weekend, I hope you have a safe and happy start to the new year!
See y'all in 2017!!!
Little bitty love,
