NYE Style

 In Fashion, Inspiration, Lifestyle, Outfits
Wow– this year flew by! I cannot believe that it’s almost 2017.  In the coming year, I’ll be graduating from college and getting my first “real-person” job…. scary. This has been a year full of highs and exciting moments. Some of my favorite memories are:
  • My internship with ELLE in NYC
  • My 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend
  • My sister getting into her dream school for acting at USC
  • Going to Charleston with my mom
  • Our family vacation to Hilton Head Island

Even though this year was great, I always strive to make the coming year better than the last! Some of my goals for 2017 are:

  • Get a job in NYC
  • Find a cute (and affordable) apartment
  • Continue to grow my blog
  • Try to practice yoga and mediation more regularly
  • Be more spontaneous (I’m such a planner)

Now onto the celebrations!! Whether you decide to go out to a party or stay in snuggled up on the couch, you probably want some festive attire for the big NYE.  I picked outfits for both occasions below and they all have FREE TWO-DAY shipping (s/o to Revolve, you get me).

If you plan on going out:

New Year’s Eve is all about glitz and glamor for me. I adore gold and sparkles for this special night! I shared a lot of sequined options below, including a jumper for you ladies who don’t want to show your whole leg in freezing weather. *Click on the outfit to shop 🙂

If you plan on staying in:

Sometimes watching the ball drop from the comfort of your own home is much better than braving the crazies at the club. NYE means champagne in my opinion, so I picked out some cute tees and lounge items that are perfect for the night.

 

What are you plans for this NYE? Have any good resolutions for 2017?!

Xx,

Lauren

    That is so awesome that you had an internship at Elle! Looks like you actually had a pretty good year! I'm just trying to graduate, get an internship at the PGA, apply to grad school and get in, and also lose 15 pounds so it'll be a busy year!

    It was SO creative to do both a night out and night in round-up of outfits. As much as I'd love an excuse to wear this new lace/sequin/sheer dress I got recently, I have a feeling I'll be curling up in sweats to watch the ball drop on TV with some sort of vodka cocktail and my boyfriend by my side haha. So fun!

    I just finished my internship in NYC recently too! What were you doing at Elle? One of my 2017 goals is to get a job in NYC as well! And I'm also currently apartment hunting but in Jersey City so that I'm still close to the city but not city prices! HAHA 😉 Goodluck! -Erica (fellow IHC'er)

    I'm happy to read you've achieved (and are going to achieve) so many things this past year and the things you look forward to are equally delightful! 🙂 I'm one of those persons who go to too many parties, events and what not, so I'm actually gonna stay snuggled up on my couch on NYE and just have a cozy time 🙂
    Have a wonderful New Years!
    xoxo

    That's so exciting that you got to intern with Elle! That's a dream of mine to work for a magazine. What exactly did you do there? It seems like you had an amazing year and I wish you an amazing 2017! I might see you in NY some time!

    I love how you included night-in outfits because that will totally be me this year!! We are just returning from our never-ending holiday travel so my husband & I made the decision to relax at home for NYE. So many great goals and wonderful things in store for you in 2017!! Happy New Year love!
