New Years Eve Look: Day-To-Night...

SWEATER: Stage / BOOTS: Stage /

Happy New Years EVE!! I'm taking part in Stage's virtual holiday party this year and sharing my Day-To-Night New Years look to help celebrate and #SetYourHolidayStage!! Stage offers a variety of products for entertaining, styling, glomming and gifting during all holiday seasons!

Since it is so cold in Utah during the holidays and especially around New Years (it is currently 27 degrees!!), I love wearing something comfy and warm during the day on New Years Eve, then I usually change into my party attire for our New Years festivities that evening! I don't know about you, but I love having a fancy outfit planned for New Years Eve! 

I am so excited to share my "day" look, my "night" look, and how I get ready for the evening in record time!! I am using the same holiday makeup look in my last Stage post

This year I settled on this warm textured knit sweater with the best folded neck line! And you'll never believe...this sweater is under $25!! I also wanted a touch of glam, so I snagged these gold button olive booties! They give me serious heart eyes and are under $30! Literally a steal! I would also recommend sizing up at least half a size. I am usually an 8, but could have used an 8 1/2 or 9.


During the day on New Years Eve we are usually running around doing all the last minute errands. Grabbing snacks and games! Tonight I made my favorite Avocado dip (which I will DEFINITELY be sharing at a later date, because I feel like everyone needs the recipe), and we will also be playing a ton of minute to win it games with friends! 

I love having a New Years Eve "glam" outfit ready at all times! This year since I wanted to extend Christmas and the holiday season a little more, I wanted to get a red dress! I absolutely love this lace detail from Stage. It is honestly the perfect red dress and under $50! I love getting a great deal!

Can we talk about these perfect pearl heels for a minute?? I laid eyes on these and instantly thought of a million outfits that could be topped off with these shoes! They are also under $50 and come in red and nude!

Here are my tips for getting ready for New Years Eve in record time:
1. Have your outfit planned out and take it with you! You never know what is going to happen throughout the day, or if you will have time to run home to change and get ready before your parties! (unless you are hosting!)
2. Dress up your outfit with the best details! For me, these heels were the ultimate form of "perfect details"! It adds a few pop to my outfit you wouldn't expect!
3. Apply your favorite shade of lipstick or throw on some gloss! Make sure it is fun and bold! You know I love a good red lip and I think the bolder the better! 

I hope you have such a fun New Years Eve ringing in 2019! I hope you enjoyed this Day-To-Night look and get to spend your New Years feeling glam with Stage as well!




The Top Christmas Pajamas You Can't Say "No" To...

PAJAMAS: Target / MUG: Anthropologie

Christmas is my favorite time of year! I have been a little busy cooking up a few fun things that I can't wait to share about in January and February! So stay tuned. One of my favorite Christmas traditions, that many families have, is exchanging pajamas on Christmas Eve! Colin and I always buy each other pajamas and surprise each other with them. I love wearing them to bed and while we celebrate Christmas morning!

I caved and bought a pair for myself early this year so I could stay comfy in them all season long! I found these darling red pajamas at Target for $30 and they were worth every penny! They are so soft, comfy, stretchy and feel like heaven. PLUS, they come in a bunch of other colors! I mean, is it really Christmas without Christmas pajamas??

I have rounded up all of my favorite Christmas pajamas, robes, and accessories to make your Christmas PJ shopping easier! I am always looking for fun Christmas traditions, so if you have any traditions you love doing every year please let me know!
