nye-sparkle- friendsGahhh, I am still going through post-Christmas withdrawal! It actually does not feel real to me that Christmas is over and that I am preparing for a new year! Does anyone else feel like that flew by way to fast!? I am actually a little sad! LOL. Anyways, Happy Wednesday friends! Last year Katie and I did a NYE post together and we wanted to do another collaboration with our most inspiring looks for this year again! You can check out last year’s post here.   As I am writing this, I am literally thinking…. wow, I blinked and a year passed by ALREADY also t-minus 3 days and we are talking 2017! Eeeeek!!

Side note: These photos were taken in the craziest weather! Not really, but really, the wind was insaneee! You will notice us looking like we were falling over or being blown away in some photos…. that is because that is exactly what was happening!!! On to our looks! There is never, ever too much sparkle or shine when it comes to a NYE look! I love a stand out approach when it comes to dressing up.  “Too much” never comes to mind for me! Katie and I chose looks this year, that catch the eye and make you stand out at any party.  We tried to go for looks that could not be found at your average store! I actually ordered my dress through the Luv.it app that I have been chatting about lately! Sometimes less is more, but with any NYE or holiday look, accessories add just the extra amount of pizzazz that a look needs.  We chose those accessories that everyone is CRAZY about right now…. velvet, pom poms, fur…you know, all the good stuff!! Dressing up is crazy fun and even more enjoyable when you get to add fun textures and elements of design to it!  So tell me what will you be wearing this NYE!? Be sure to check out Katie’s amazing blog here.
