What I wore to ring in the new year. We declined the party invites to spend a quiet night at home just us and the dogs. We had a lovely dinner out and then went home to watch the various countdown shows on TV. We made sure to go to the store and load up on delicious cheeses, honeycrisp apples and wines. We usually celebrate with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot (my favorite champagne) but for some reason, I was more in the mood for a red wine than anything else.

Even though we weren't partying it up, I still wanted to get dressed up so I put on a colorful dress and sparkly headband and felt quite festive for the occasion!

The dress is from Sway and Cake, the most fabulous boutique in downtown Seattle. I love shopping here as it is such a fun girly shop with always such pretty dresses and accessories. You can shop online and this dress is available and on sale here.

The headband was a Christmas present from my sister. I absolutely love it! I've been wearing it with everything, it's like the perfect accent to my hair. Not the best picture but here's a close up of it. It's pretty much just a sliver applique attached to a gray headband which makes me think I could probably do a DIY version too!

  12. First Reaction: I don't like that neckline. You have such a pretty face, the high neck seems like it's doing you a disservice.

    Second Reaction: OK, then how must I look in higher necklines? Eeek!!

    Will investigate further...

    (OMG it took me so long to write this. I didn't want it coming off as too negative!)
