Who is ready for New Year’s Eve?  While I’m not sure I’m completely ready for this year to come to a close, I know that I have my #NYE #ootd ready to go.  I’ve been waiting to wear this amazing midi skirt for a while now.  This pattern has caught my attention time after time while holiday shopping.  I now own a comfy sweater and a shirt with the same pattern.  So, you can imagine that when I saw this midi skirt with a built-in jeweled belt, it was love at first sight.  All ready to get dressed up, and not a clue where we are going.  I have to laugh because I was so excited to put together a look for the last day of 2014, but we don’t have definitive plans yet.  Maybe we’ll just dress up for each other and stay in.  Nothing like a romantic evening at home to finish off the year.

XOXO, Maria
