This Mama Feels Pretty: NYE Outfit & Link-Up



I am back!!!!  Well, I am slowly going to come back, but we can talk about that in another post.  I am joining Ada form Elegance and Mommyhood once again on her holiday series and we are talking NYE looks.  


I know that Christmas festivities might be wrapping up for some families but for us we are just gearing up for round two.   My sister and her family  arrive in a couple of days and we are all anxiously awaiting their arrival.  They don’t make it home over the holidays often so we are going to pack as much fun as we can in four days, sledding, skating outdoors, sugar cookie decorating, visiting, and throwing a  family friendly NYE bash.  Yep.  This year we are hosting and I am so excited! Make sure to tell me your favorite games, decorations or food ideas in the comments below (I have nothing planned as of yet).  When I was growing up NYE was our big holiday and when Santa arrived.  Since immigrating to Canada we’ve embraced Christmas but still like to do something special to say goodbye to the past year and welcome the New Year with hope, joy and love.  So with that said, even though it’s not going to be fancy-shmancy, I decided to take the opportunity to buy a new skirt and ring in the new year in style. 


 I knew exactly what I wanted when I stumbled upon this skirt on the RW & Co website (it's on sale).  I love the shimmery metallic, pink color of the skirt of this skirt.  I love that it has shimmer without being too much, giving me lots of opportunity to wear out on date nights and even to work events.   Initially I was going to style it with a blush pink top, with fluttery short sleeves,  but last minute I though I’d play with colors and textures and grabbed my vibrant, crimson red, velvet, long sleeved top.   I love how the contrast came together for a festive, elegant and chic outfit.  Since we are going to be indoors, I think I’ll keep my strappy black heels on, at least until we start dancing and singing around and my feet start to ache.
 





Tomorrow night we are having we are having an early NYE  with friends.  It’ll be casual with appetizers, ice skating, hot tubbing, and LOTS of kiddos.  I think I’ll wear the same top but pair it up with some black pants for a more casual and comfortable look. 


 


Regardless of what you are doing, or wearing, I want to wish you the very best in 2019!  Stay tuned for my 2018 goal recap and my goals for 2019.

LINDA A Labour of Life "What I am not wearing this year for New Years Eve.
New Years is always glitz and glitter but also fur and warmth.  Adding my black fur helps make even the coldest of nights feel wonderful.  This year however I will be poolside in Orlando with my boys so I am sharing what I normally would be wearing not what I am actually wearing. (Only because it's hard to share a preview of what I will be wearing poolside, when there is so much snow around.) Happy New Year's Eve and wishing you all the best in 2019!"
MONICA Jersey Girl, Texan Heart "Ok, I'm going to be super blunt with y'all.  I will be staying in this year.  I posted a dress in yesterday's post, but let's be real, I will be relaxing and drinking my wine at home with my family and probably falling asleep before the ball drops, don't judge me haha!  I hope everyone has a happy new year!"
LAURA I Do deClaire "This fun top caught my eye on amazon a few weeks ago and I knew it would be perfect for NYE! My husband and I haven't gone out to celebrate NYE for years, but I still like to sparkle, even if it's at home! This top can be dressed up with a skirt or leather pants, but it's just as cute with black leggings or joggers if you are staying in. Hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year's!
ADA Elegance and Mommyhood " My plans for New Year's Eve this year are up in the air, but I might take my mom and my daughter out for dinner, to a nice restaurant. For sure I will be wearing some sparkle and some silver though. I love this ruffled-hem black+silver brocade dress I chose. With the right blush velvet shoes, a bow in my hair, a sequined clutch and crystal earrings, my dress is perfect for New Year's. Cheers to a Bright and Beautiful Two Thousand Nineteen!!"
ROXANNE Glass of Glam "I love any chance to wear sequins, so for this outfit I went all out with a long-sleeved sequin mini dress from Rent The Runway. I've had so many positive changes in my life this year that there is much cause to celebrate! To a successful 2018 and an even more successful 2019!"
BOJANA Bo's Bodacious Blog "It's Bojana from Bosbodaciousblog.  Even though we aren't going anywhere fancy for NYE, I am still planning on ringing in the New Year in style with this gorgeous, light pink, shimmery, pleated skirt and a crimson red velvet top.  Hop over to see the outfit details and read about our plans."
SHELBEE Shelbee on the Edge "I love the classic combination of black and white for special occasions and what is better than velvet, faux fur, and sequins for New Year’s Eve? I chose this black velvet burnout top from Foxcroft to pair with wide cuff cropped white denim for a comfortable but chic holiday outfit. My new black faux fur coat was a Christmas gift from my husband this year. I fell in love with this coat the moment it came into the consignment shop. And of course, sequined booties are perfect for ringing in the new year! Wishing you all a happy and blessed 2019!"

    1. Oh my goodness, thank you sooooooo much. I really appreciate your kind words. It usually is freezing here but on this particular day it was warm (by our standards). Yes, I wore stocking though, because it's still not that warm. Hhahaha. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  2. I mentioned on my blog post today that your outfit was hands down my most favorite. You killed it in that beautiful metallic pink skirt and that stunning magenta sweater. This is an outfit I'd wear in a heartbeat complete with those stunning shoes too. I loved reading about your plans and traditions too, Bo. As another Eastern European our biggest holiday in Albania was New Year's Eve too and that is when Santa came. Sounds like time spent with your sister will be perfect. Oh and happy belated 9th birthday to your daughter who is just as stylish as her mama!

    You can read my Holiday New Year's Eve post on the blog now with a brand-new Thursday Moda linkup and meanwhile I'd love for you to join the last "Skirting the Rules" linkup I have going (link below). Thank you for everything sweet and stylish friend. Happy New Year 2019 and many many blessings and good health into the new year!
