Boy the year went fast didn’t it? Is that what you start saying the older you get? Tonight we are going to be with a few old and dear friends for a low key, but fun get-together. I haven’t hosted NYE in a while, but I saved some of these favorites for inspiration….

What are you wearing for New Year’s Eve? Are you going to a fancy party or just hitting the couch to watch the ball drop? The latter was what we did for many years when our kids were very small. Now, we have been lucky for the last few years to get together with fun friends whose kids are similar ages. The kids have a blast waiting for midnight and we adults dress up a bit and ring in the the year with good pals. With the kind of party we are attending we get sparkly, but still dress comfy. We’re talking jeans and cute tops with a fun accessory or two. I’ll try to bring it and wear something that feels fun! I am right now contemplating wearing a ruffly black blouse, jeans and black motorcycle boots or a sequin sweater tank top in grey and some skinny dark pants from J Crew. Or maybe I’ll go shopping…

|What about a cute sequin skirt and a soft long sleeve sweater? I would love this with flats or boots. With heels you’ll look like you’re trying too hard. Classy vs. crassy if you know what I mean. Less can be more. Nordstrom.com|
|Hey, even easier, this is a dress. Like the relaxed appeal. Nordstrom.com|
|I’m loving one-shouldered tops. This Rachel Zoe top is cute with jeans. Add a fabulous earring or cuff bracelet. Nordstrom.com|
|Simple and elegant. Love this blouse especially. Hair up would look cute with this ruffled collar. Vogue.com|
|Pretty pale look from Club Monaco. Do you feel like a bit of time travel? I’d be channeling some fabulous British drama like, ” Passage to India”, or something in this. Oops wrong party! Darn.|
|Speaking of pedis you might have fun wearing this… Rainbow Connection by OPI.|
|I love this $20 clutch from Nordstrom.com|

|How about this pave link bracelet? J Crew.com too.|
|Tasha earrings from Nordstrom again. If you’re going to wear earrings as your main bling then go big or go home!|
|Loving this $58 jacket from the juniors department. Nordstrom .com Perfect topper to keep you glamourous but warm. At least here in Nor Cal. Sorry if you are in Chicago, this is probably not going to cut it.|
