Style Log: Casual NYE

Are you rushed for a NYE outfit?  I know I was.  In my defense, the original plan was to drink champagne at home.  But, some last-minute plans changed all that and now I’ll be going out.  Yay!!  But, oh turd-slips!!!  I need an outfit NOW!  In my attempt to not spend money on a dress I would probably only wear for one night, I decided to put together an alternative.  Plus, it’s supposed to be really cold tonight so I’d prefer wearing pants.

I put together this sweet, subtle look with a touch of sparkle.  Perfect for the laid-back gal that’s ready to bring in the new year without sacrificing comfort for chic or chic for comfort 😉

www.lizlauers.comThe only piece I bought specifically for this last-minute NYE outfit was this gold and white cardigan – it can be easily dressed up or dressed down.  The gold is festive enough, but mixed with the white makes it wearable for other things besides a party. Win!!  I found this at Marshall’s on sale for just $16!  So make sure to check them out 🙂www.lizlauers.comI couldn’t ring in the new year without my favorite color!  This perfectly pink top has been hanging in my closet waiting to be worn again.  And NYE will be its day!  I like it when things mesh well, so adding this pink and gold necklace was a no-brainer.  Add MAC’s relentlessly red lipstick and you’ve got a pink paradise ❤www.lizlauers.comBecause it will be a cold night, wearing pants is a priority!  I found these navy skinnies for under $10 and I’ve worn them so much!  I hadn’t paired it with pink, which is one of my favorite color combos…so pink and navy it is!  It was kind of meant to be because my go-to blue and gold purse really helps bring it all together.I was soooo tempted to wear these amazing navy OTK boots I recently found (did I mention it will be cold tonight??), but decided that gold pumps were just way more fitting for festivities.www.lizlauers.comOf course, in regular NYE tradition, you need a cute NYE headband.  BUT to not be like everyone else, I’ll wear this super cute headband I found at Old Navy last year.www.lizlauers.com

Finding a glitzy, sparkly dress is ALWAYS fun, but if you want to be casual and comfy, a sequin cardigan may be the way to go.  There are so many out there right now, too.  Perfect for all of us last-minute NYE planners.

For a completely different look, consider this blue and gold look featured here.

Add some sparkle to your casual outfit with any of these cardigans you can get now:GTL
