Party Attire


I gotta be honest guys – I kind of hate even talking about New Year’s Eve at this point in December… mostly because I am secretly so sad that Christmas isn’t a two or three-month long holiday (I vote that it should be!), and talking about what to wear to NYE parties makes me feel like it’s over before it’s even gotten here yet! Alas, I must admit that I’ve already been thinking about it. To me, party attire is all about mixing a little glitz with a little glam and then owning it like a rock star. I mean, at what other time in the year can you shamelessly get away with wearing more than the usual dose of sparkly, sequined garb? It’s part of what makes us all love NYE, right?

I married the love of my life. For all my single friends out there, I want you to know that it’s worth it to wait for the guy who you can’t get enough of, who makes you want to be better and brings out the best in you, who you don’t have to convince yourself about.

Remember how I’m sort of past the point of caring though guys? Like what’s a girl gonna do about it anyway? 1-2-3 I’m over it. Took these pics on the beach in Carmel, where husband and I celebrated our anniversary along with my sister and her husband a couple weekends ago (we share an anniversary date with them). Ohhhh to still be there. Our actual anniversary is tomorrow! Three years people! Crazy town. We’re probs gonna keep things pretty low key since we technically already celebrated and it’s the middle of the week, but going to a nice dinner is at least in order. Right? p.s. Don’t forget to vote for my look in the…
