Happy New Year!  I know, I know, it's the 2nd day of 2014.  But I had to give you such a great #giveaway yesterday (enter here), that I sort of postponed my Happy New Year!  This is WIW on NYE.  It was freezing and so I had to resort to style + comfort/warmability (is that a word?).  

In writing this post, I didn't realize almost my whole outfit is from J.Crew - a little obsessed...  What I love about my outfit, is even though it's my NYE look, the basic pieces go beyond to wearability into the new year.  If you don't own a black blazer, time to buy one this year.  It is a perfect layering tool in all seasons.  My vintage straight leg jeans are a new favorite of mine. Wear them with heels, like I did last night, for a fun dressed up look; or with some great leopard flats to run errands or lunch out with the girls. 

I love dressing up in my life and for the blog, but I try to be somewhat practical too.  Sequin skirts and dresses are super gorgeous, just not practical for me to buy and wear one night of the year.  If that's you, buy pieces you can dress up with the right jewelry and shoes.

More to love:

Thank you readers for all your support, comments, and bloglove.  2013 was a great year and I look forward to seeing all that 2014 has to offer.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

  10. I love your outfit – very chic. I think you could buy a sequined shirt and pair it with your distressed jeans and a blazer and swear it everyday without looking overdone... then again, I've been told my idea of overdone doesn't necessarily correlate with others'.
