New Years Eve Style + Beauty

IMG_4344.JPG

New Years Eve is one of my favorite days of the year.  There is something so special about the reflection that day brings, followed by toasting a new beginning.  I have so many distinct memories from past New Years Eves.  My favorite being the NYE that my husband proposed to me!  

Last NYE, was marked with a little sadness, as it was our 10 month of trying for a baby.  My husband remained hopeful, but I was definitely disappointed to leave 2016 behind without any sign of the baby that I wanted so badly.  Some years, I have a word or a theme for the upcoming years. For 2017, I knew for certain that my word was 'hope.'  We received the news that we were pregnant in early 2017 and my word took on a new meaning.  I had to learn to have hope in so many things that were new territory for me and I trusted God in the things that were so clearly out of my control.

Because I love NYE so much, I always get a new outfit to celebrate!  I like to ring in the new year with a little sparkle!  We never 'go out' for NYE.  For the past 5 years, we have spent it at our family's farm - Sugarboo Farms.  We spend a few days there with friends and for NYE, we have a catered dinner and dancing.  Last year, I wore a rosegold sparkle dress from Zara and I found an excellent dupe this year!  Here's a few other sparkly options (click on the photos to shop!):

This year will be a little more lowkey, so I am going to opt for a sparkly top (rosegold again, I can't help myself!!).  I will pair it with this denim and these shoes.  Here are sparkly options that I love that would be a great alternative to a dress (click photos to shop!):

I just ordered this faux fur stole to keep warm at 50% OFF!!  Here's some other accessories I'm loving (click on photo to shop!):

I can't leave you without a little beauty inspo!  For a festive glow, I love this, this or this.  These lashes are a MUST.  And for a bright lip, I love this in Blooming.  For a nude lip, I love this in Pink Canyon!

I hope your NYE sparkles and shines!
