While most holiday looks are full of lots of bling, sometimes I think looks with just a touch of sparkle are best. The above look is what I wore for Christmas day, but I think this look could also work for a last minute New Years Eve outfit idea! The stitching in the sweater has sparkles in it, which provides just the right amount of shine. I kept my accessories pretty neutral, but add a statement necklace and you're good to go for your New Years Eve party! I cannot find this exact sweater online anymore, but if you look in store you should be able to find it as I just recently bought it.  I still haven't decided what I want to wear on New Year's Eve as it is going to be only like 18 degrees that night! I'm opting for sweatpants and a blanket right now haha. Do you have fun New Years Eve plans?!

I hope you all had great holidays! I enjoyed all the time I had celebrating with my family. If you follow me on Instagram, then you saw we got 6 inches of snow on Christmas Eve! We had a White Christmas and I loved it. They are claiming we are going to get hit with another 10 inches today! Guess Winter is officially here.

  10. I'm so incredibly jealous of your white Christmas! I was wearing jeans, but I probably would have been more comfortable in shorts this Christmas because it was 80 degrees outside! I love how you added just a little bit of glimmer to your NYE outfit! This would be the perfect outfit to wear from the office to a NYE party!

  25. Enjoy the snow!! I am ok with it as long as I don't have to get out in it. We are just getting so much rain here in St. Louis. It is supposed to stop tonight. I love a hint of sparkle, too and I wore a grey top with sparkly elbow patches for Christmas Eve! You look great!

  29. I definitely prefer a more understated sparkly rather than straight up sequins so I love the subtlety of that sweater.

    Such a perfect piece for the holiday season.

    Jealous you got a white Christmas! I wanted one soooo badly, but we did just get a few inches today so that's exciting!

  38. Kind of jealous of your white Christmas! It was rainy and entirely too warm for December here. We're going on a fancy dinner date (at 5pm!) for NYE, then we'll be spending the rest of the evening in our sweats with some Netflix :) This is kind of our last fancy date before baby arrives!

  39. Loving grey and black combos for winter - this is perfect! My NYE style will likely consist of sweatpants...not exciting but comfy at least!! :)

  45. Gorgeous outfit! Also looks warm for those colder nights (where we live it's still warmish). So I could just wear a dress and be okay.

  49. I was so sad we didn't have a white Christmas last week ... and then it snowed last night, which I'm even more annoyed by. Can't we have snow just for Christmas week? ;-)

    Your sweater is so pretty and perfect for casual holidays.

  57. I missed some of your posts from the holidays so I am catching up with them now. I love love this look. Great skirt and sweater. Outfits like these is what I love and wear over the holidays (check yesterday's post). I love the look of a mini skirt or short trumpet skirt like yours with dark tights or black opaque tights. It is instant chic.
