New Year, New TraditionPosted: January 2, 2012
I was inspired by BeautyRiot Diva for this post. I liked her idea of having her significant other pick out her clothes for a week. Unfortunately, I don’t have a week’s worth of outfits to wear to work, so I asked Chris to pick out one outfit on one day of the weekend.
Chris picked out the jacket and asked me to wear it with a pair of jeans. The jacket is fairly worn and nubby, but it was actually warm enough for me to wear with a light jacket over top. I prettied it up with my red shoes and some gold jewelry.
So, this is what I wore on the last day of 2011. Nothing fancy or splashy; just a casual look to ring in the new year. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a swanky party to attend, so there wasn’t a need for a party dress. We ended up hanging out at my parents’ house to celebrate the new year. My party outfit ended up being a pair of pajamas with cats in Santa hats and polka dots (sorry, no pictures). My dad suggested I wear polka dots for good luck. Apparently, my dad has started a new tradition. Hopefully, this translates to good fortune in the future.
All in all, I didn’t have to think hard about my attire this weekend. That’s the way to ease into the new year: with a laid-back attitude (and surrounded by your loved ones). Here’s to a happy and healthy new year!
