Count Down

This year, I’ll be spending New Year’s Eve with some close friends at a house on Lake Michigan. It will be a quick trip as we’re heading up there today and coming back to Chicago tomorrow, but it should be a lot of fun! Since the high is only 19*F and there is a lot of snow on the ground, I’ve had to re-think my plans of wearing a dress. Instead, I’ll be wearing these fabulous Tommy Hilfiger leather pants (so warm!) and some shimmery separates on top. Hope you have a safe & fabulous NYE! :)

    Girl, I can totally relate – it got down below 0 here last night and I was crying myself to sleep! But, I love all the mixed textures you’re playing with here – great all black look! Have a happy new year! xo

    You look fabulous as always. It’s barely going to hit 20 degrees here in RI so I am re-thinking my outfit choice for this evening as well. Hope you have a wonderful celebration with friends. Happy New Year lovely! xx Jess

    I’m doing something a little low key this year as well. I’ll be inside, so I’m definitely busting out my glitter pumps & sequin top. Happy New Year’s!!

    I changed my plans once I saw the forecast too! Exactly zero where I live, and it’s only gotten worse. Hope you had a great New Years!
