My NYE plans changed abruptly – my poor sister was going to host a bash and came down with a horrible stomach bug that has been traveling around our extended family and neighborhood.  We're not sure exactly what we plan to do this evening, we have a babysitter and two bottles of bubbly in the fridge and I plan on picking up sushi on the way back from dropping Emerson off at my mom's house.  There's a few activities going on in town, but we're not against just rining in the new year snuggling together on the couch!

So instead of what I was going to wear to the party, I decided to do something more comfortable and low key, but still with plenty of sparkle and shine! I saw this sequined sweater on eBay many years ago and they sold it as a dress; even when I was a size 10 this baby was NOT long enough to be a dress. I wore it once before with a flippy skirt and tights, but it made my body look a lot like a barrel. With jeggings and heels, my midsection is better balanced, and I don't feel as much like a goth disco ball!

Happy New Year everyone!
