Happy New Year, everyone! Whether you kept it low key or went out with a bang, I hope your New Year’s Eve celebrations were a blast and that 2014 is off to a great start so far. We’re only a few hours in, and the New Year has already been a busy one for me. We had a little party with friends last night, and being surrounded by great people, delicious food and amazing drinks was such a fun, wonderful way to ring in the New Year.
And in case you didn’t notice, I’ve also been busy making some major changes to the blog! Most notably, it’s got a new name: Life in Classics. I think it’s pretty clear by looking at my posts over the last year that I have a true love for classic style, decor, entertaining and just a polished way of life. So I decided to make the blog a dedicated guide to creating a sophisticated life through clothing, accessories, food, decor, travel and more in a way that’s refined yet modern. I think “classic” fashion has a bad reputation for being stuffy, boring and uncreative, and I wanted to prove that it’s quite the opposite. In fact, for me, there are few things more beautiful than a clean line or a traditional cut that’s worn in a modern, fashionable way. Head over to the About page to learn a little more about the idea behind Life in Classics, and stay tuned to the blog for ideas and posts about living life in classics.
And now, back to the outfit. I was so excited to show off one of the Christmas presents Harrison got me last week: this gorgeous gold lamé tank that added the perfect amount of shimmer to my New Year’s Eve ensemble.
The way this slinky top flows over the body is flattering on so many different body types, and I’m crazy about the way the gold looks as if it’s almost melting (if that makes sense). I’ve been on a burgundy kick lately, even down to my lipstick, and I love how the hue threads its way through this paisley-printed top. I knew we would be out for a long time last night, so I wanted to keep it comfy but classy with a pair of black denim, simple black pumps and gilded jewelry.
What did you wear for your New Year’s Eve celebration?
