Friday Favorites: New Years Eve Style.

Did you know that Jenn and I partner on blog posts from states away? (We're separated by Oregon). It's infrequent that we actually get to spend time together, instead of trading our usual texts and emails. The past couple of years we have reunited over the holidays - typically around New Year's. Therefore, we thought it only fitting that we should share a New Year's Eve-inspired post to get you "stylishly prepared" for your celebration, whatever that may include.  

And you can still order your Festive Attire in time for NYE without paying extra shipping costs.  So now that your Christmas to-do list is checked off, lets get started...

Sequin Pants (Jenn)

Trouvé sequin jogger Metallic clutch

Although these pants are a jogger (read: "sweatpant-like silhouette"), the sequins inherently elevate them to fancy attire. With the addition of a few special accessories, like the red shoes, metallic clutch, and oversized, gem-stone earrings, this look is entirely party-ready. However, don't reserve your sequins only for the holidays! I've worn these pants with a simple white tee and wedge sneakers for a downtown cool, yet casual look. I love sequins 365 days a year!

in case you need more reasons to check out sequin joggers, the black are an additional 30% off today and free shipping with code HOLIDAY30, and these gray ones are sort of incredible, but gold - oh my.

Lace Dress (Kirsty)

This might be cheating a little bit because I just posted about this dress and its party appropriateness; however, I love it so much I'm gonna talk about it again. Adding lace to your little party dress adds so much more personality and interest. It's vintage flare makes it special and lace is always more flattering, helping to camouflage flaws (say that 5 times fast - there's your NYE drinking game, if you are into that kind of stuff, of course).

Metallic Dress (Jenn)

Kenise Reflection Dress Madewell Car Coat
Lucia K Taylor Hematite Earrings

Nothing says that you're ready to ring in the New Year like a metallic dress. The style of this dress is so simple and chic, yet festive. I've added some color with the red lip and shoe (clearly a wardrobe favorite!). Meanwhile, I've kept my other accessories in the same grey and metallic tone; allowing the dress to take center stage. The tweed metallic texture of the dress is even reminiscent of the sparkle of champagne.

 Dress: Kensie | Coat: Madewell (similar) | Heels: Jessica Simpson (this year's version) | Clutch: Marc Jacobs for Target (similar) | Earrings: Lucia K Jewelry (Kirsty's jewelry line!) | Lips: NARS 'Cruella'

Jumpsuit (Kirsty)

DV Dolce Vita Jumpsuit

For some reason a jumpsuit seems to up your style ante, but in reality it takes much less effort in the fashion department to wear because it is simply one piece of clothing, instead of two. I am not sure why I am so devoted and utterly in love with the romper/jumpsuit, I just am. I will admit that using the bathroom is just a bit more effort, clearly not a deal breaker though. Simply add some amazing shoes and jewelry, and your done. It's like the benefit of a dress without having to think about tights or shaving your legs. Add some flash tattoos, and you might be the coolest girl in the city.
Although the colors of this romper are more summery, the style of this romper is spot on NYE fabulous. If this were black, your little black romper could replace your little black dress. Not kidding. The jumpsuit below is a jersey material (read: giant T-shirt), for those of you who prioritize comfort...no more excuses.

Temporary Tattoos: Flash Tattoos | Strappy Heels: Sam Edelman

Here are all my current favorite black rompers, I tried to narrow it down promise, and some are under 30$ dollars.

And a few in some winter colors and patterns, perfect for NYE or any day, just switch up your accessories.

Cheers to your special celebration! Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year! As always, thanks for reading! ~Kirsty & Jenn
