Cheers to the New Year!

I hope everyone had a fabulous time ringing in the New Year last night and you are all enjoying the first day of 2016. As many of you might know, because I write about it each year, I'm usually a homebody when it comes to New Year's Eve. This year that meant spending time on the sofa with my husband and dog, watching movies and eating fondue. Not a bad way to usher in the New Year, in my opinion. If I had gone out, I might have worn something similar to this ensemble below, complete with lucky gold elephants and charming sequin bows. Between these details and the gold and silver, how could you go wrong for the big night?

So just like these elephants marching their way through my skirt, it's time to march into the New Year ahead. Who knows what it will have in store? On that note, I wish all of my readers a Happy New Year and best wishes for the upcoming year ahead. May it be filled with cheer, joy, and new memories!

  1. With each new outfit you post, I cannot decide which one is the best. This is another stunning outfit! I just love your eye and sense of forward and daring, feminine, chic, and classic all at the same time. You never disappoint, Katie!

    1. You're too kind and sweet Regina! I hope you have a wonderful week ahead of you!

  2. Happy New year to you too, Katie and may it also be filled with new, wonderful memories.
    I have to say I completely endorse Regina's comments above! Couldn't have said it better. I would never have thought to have paired the grey cardigan with that skirt but the way you've styled it, it just so works! You really do have a fantastic eye for detail.
    I'm definitely going to find a way to wear more skirts this year!

    1. Thank you and Happy New Year! You should definitely wear more skirts as I think they would be lovely on you. What a great style resolution! I hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. I agree, this outfit is superb to usher in the new year. The skirt is a stunner and I love the bow cardigan and bow belt with it. I have been a homebody the last 4 years (since I was pregnant) and not gone out for New Year. Happy 2016 beautiful Katie. I know it will be filled with fun and colorful fashions for you!

  4. I love this Katie! The sweater is so pretty, I would wear in a heartbeat. Love the gold elephants on your skirt, You have some great skirts, love the colors. We ate sushi had champagne and watched the ball drop on tv as my pup is afraid of fireworks. I enjoy it at home.

    Thank you for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday!
