What are You Doing New Years Eve? | Sequin Skirt and Trench Coat

Happy NYE lovelies!

I wore this skirt last year for New Years but I wanted to repurpose it this year for my NYE parties! This year, I'm hanging out with only a few friends, instead of a going to a big event, like I attended last year. I wanted my outfit to have some sparkle (it's New Years, after all), but still have a laid-back vibe to match my surroundings. I also got this necklace as a Christmas gift from my mom. Isn't it lovely??

I actually got the idea for this outfit from Pinterest (here's the original pin). I recently found out about some really old news in the blogging community regarding plagiarism. I want to be transparent here and work to be a part of the solution and not the problem. I have certainly been inspired by many other bloggers that I follow and comment on but as hard as I work on my blog, I know everyone else does too. I would never want to "steal" a look and benefit from someone else's creativity. If I really like an outfit and want to recreate it, I will always give credit. If you think that a look seems too familiar, please call me out on it! I encourage all constructive criticism (I work in politics, trust me, I can take it).

Happy New Years Eve!

  2. Such a pretty look! Sequins are fantastic any time, but obviously they are perfect for NYE. I love how your skirt isn't just sequins, but also has the subtle chevron pattern. Great necklace, too!
