We are at the end of yet another year and I just can not believe it! New Year's Day is a big deal in my family, not only are we starting a new year but it's also my Mom's bday (my pockets also suffer)! This year instead of staying in NYC I decided to come down and spend her birthday with her so I'm enjoying my last week in NC before heading back to the jungle.

We still have no concrete plans except for dinner and the Dillard's New Year's sale, lol! I usually wait until the last minute to plan and also decide on an outfit (dont judge me). This year, I'm ready, whether it's a chill night with mom and friends or a night out on the town, I packed options! If you're a last minute shopper here's a little inspiration.

Are your friends having a kick back? This look is cute, comfy, festive, and makes a bold statement.

This  sequin skirt will be the talk of the house!

Tops: H&M (Sold out) /H&M | Bottom: H&M (options) | Shoes: H&M (sim) | Sunnies: Rayban |

Who's ready to party? I'm so thankful for great coworkers who know my style. My work boo Erika snagged this skirt for me from a sample sale, does she know me or what?! It goes perfectly with my sequin top and makes for a great NYE outfit.

This coat completes the look! I found it on sale at H&M randomly 50% off. Make sure you check sales after holidays or the end of a season.

A sequin outfit is more fun when you break the pieces up and make two outfits instead! I'm ready for New Year's Eve, are you?!
