New Year’s Eve Attire

You guys, this will be the first NYE in four (yes, FOUR) years that I won’t be home ringing in the new year changing diapers.  And, as terrible as it may sound, I am so excited about it!  I don’t know how in world I’m going to stay up until midnight, but I’m giddy nonetheless.  My husband is a Firefighter/Paramedic and his shift often falls on holidays so, though we typically don’t have plans anyway, often times he would be working regardless.  This year he is off work and friends of ours are having a small gathering.  It’s going to be a casino night with poker, blackjack, roulette and even a DJ to play jams.  The best part, two other couples/friends of ours and us are all going to have a slumber party with our kids.  We’re bringing our sitter with us to watch and play with the kids so all of our children, who are the best of friends, can ring in the new year together while we go attend the party.  It really is a win, win for the whole family.  I can’t wait to wake up on New Year’s Day with our kids and close friends!

The girls are all going to dress up for the party so as soon as I knew we’d be able to attend, I purchased these gold sequins leggings.  Does it get more NYE than gold sequins leggings?  I think not!  These are very comfortable, which was really surprising (I kind of expected them to be itchy and scratchy).  They have a cotton lining, are very warm, under $40, and also come in three other colors.  I will say though, as festive as these leggings are, I think I’ve talked myself into wearing something else…and by something else, I mean my black leather leggings.  Typical woman issues…never deciding on what to wear.  Or maybe that’s just me.

Here’s a little PSA for you, this Madwell tee from Nordstrom is the best tee, EVER! It’s under $20 and comes in several colors.  I promise, you will live in this thing.  I also have this tee in grey.  AMMMAZING.  Also, in case you missed my post on Monday, Nordstrom is having a HUGE sale right now and soooooo many great things are 50% OFF.  Boots, heels, tennis shoes, sweaters, cardigans, denim, athletic wear, and more. Shop the sale here.
