Christmas is next week, but I'm also looking forward to New Year's Eve. Do I have plans? Nope. I don't really feel like traveling and I think a lot of my friends from the city will be out of town. (Frankly, I'd totally be fine relaxing with movies and takeout!)
One of the biggest things I've learned to embrace is to know thyself. Crowded, loud parties with lots of alcohol will never be my thing... even I think they sound kind of fun (from a distance). In the past, I've tried to convince myself that it is for me, until I get there and remember exactly who I am and exactly who I am not. Will I ever be the life of the party? No. But that's just fine with me!
Some of my favorite NYE memories though have been hanging out in hotel rooms with friends during training trips (#coxswainproblems) or intimate, cozy dinners followed by a trip to the movie theatre. My kind of fun. And dinners are still a good excuse to get dressed up!
While sequined dresses are definitely the standard for New Year's Eve, you can also make a statement in a little black dress you already own. Just add accessories.
Feeling in the mood for sequins? Okay, okay... Here are some of my favorite options:
What are you wearing for New Year's Eve? Any super fun plans?
