What to Wear, What to Wear…

Yep, it’s New Year’s Eve morning and nope I’m still not sure what I’m wearing tonight.

I have an excuse.  Sort of.

We aren’t going anywhere fancy.  Just to a kid-friendly party at my sister Heather’s house (sorry Heather, no offense).

I want to be comfy, that’s fo sho.  Which means flat shoes, stretchy pants and a cozy sweater.  Nothing says NYE like THAT combo, right?  No, not really.  I do want it to feel a little more special than the frocks I normally gallivant about in.  Gallivant, I like that word.

So I took to Pinterest this weekend for some inspiration.  I know one thing, I WILL be wearing my new Spanx knock-off leggings, which you will soon hear a lot about (forget weight loss resolutions, I have these bad boys to suck in the holiday gain!)  I also want to wear my new boots HERE that I got for Christmas, like every day.  So this much is decided, it’s going to be a black and brown NYE.

I found this black and brown look for inspiration…


And this is the look I *hope* to create using items I already have in my closet.

    I love the fur vests, but when I try them on in the stores, I feel like I look like a grizzly bear. lol I can’t wait to see your outfit Wednesday.

    • PrettyOn

      LOL! I sort of feel that way too. It will be interesting to see how the outfit comes together. Sometimes they look great in sets but not in real life. Have a happy NYE!

  • Your outfit is going to look great. Black and brown always looks so pulled together and polished. Can’t wait to see you sporting your new boots. Happy New Years! We are staying in and doing karaoke, lol 🙂 Heather

      Heather – that sounds like fun! Hope you have a great NYE!

  • I *love* black and brown together – great outfit from DailyLook! We are going out for early cocktails, then home for a movie/book/final toast to 2012. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday and Happy New Year!

      Sounds like a nice evening, Patti! Low key is always great. Happy New Year!

  • Sounds so cute! Wish I had bought that fur vest online at Express a couple weeks ago. I just didn’t think I would wear it much. We are also going to a kid friendly NYE party and I’m trying to figure out something cute. Have fun!

  • Loving the sweater and faux fur! We are hosting a kid-friendly party..woo-hoo!
    Happy New Years!

  • Cute outfit inspiration! I’m a big fan of fur vest…and Michael Kors watches. 🙂

    Happy New Year!


  • Can’t wait to see your outfit!
    I’m away with hubby for a New Years Eve celebration. Wearing a black (what else?) dress tonight. Congrats on your success….not a surprise. Your sparkling personality shows in every post! 🙂
    Wishing you and yours a Happy & Healthy 2013!

    • PrettyOn

      Aww, thanks Jeannie. You’re so sweet and I’m sure will look gorgeous tonight, as always.

  • Loving this casual look for New Years Eve! I am still undecided about what to do!! Eeek. We have reservations for dinner and then party plans afterwards, and I have a sparkly gold/cream sequin dress from White House Black Market, but yesterday I started having second thoughts – how nice would it be to go out to dinner and just come home, and stay more casual, with leggings, cute boots, and a top with just a hint of sparkle? I think I’m going more that route now!

    Happy New Year!!!

    • PrettyOn

      You could have the best of both worlds, a nice dinner out and a casual night after. That sounds perfect!

  • i want to own everything in this look!!!

  • Kind of nice that I don’t have to plan anything to wear, haha…I have a date with my two lil ones and hubby for a snuggly night on our couch. Pajamas is about as festive as this girl is getting tonight. And secretly I am very much looking forward to it!

    Happy New Year pretty girl:) Best in 2013.

    So cute! I assume you found a fur vest?! 😉
    I will be staying in and keeping warm and comfy in my jammies! 😉

  • I love black and brown together
    I just think it looks so sophisticated
    Hope you have a great time at your sisters
    Wish I didn’t live 10 hours away from mine!
    Happy New Year

  • Black and brown is probably my favorite color combo!! I think it is quite chic! I hope you have a joyous New year….I enjoyed your post!

  • I have always loved black and brown together, even before it was “okay” to wear it. I love MK’s watches too, but since I already have too many watches I cannot justify one right now. They do make a fab statement.
    Happy New Year to you!

  • I look forward to seeing how this comes out in real life! It’s all about real life, in the end.

  • New Follower!! Found you though the link up! Love your Year in Review!!Hope to get to know you better! Love your blog… and if you have time check me out at Happy New Year! K Jaggers

  • Love this comfy look! I wore something similar only in black and blue!

  • I kept a casual NYE as well. Jeans, boots, black long sleeved tee and my gray/lurex vest. Comfy with just the right amount of sparkle.

  • J’adore this look! And it looks ridiculously comfy!
