Welcome to 2016, you guys!! Hope you all had a great night ringing in the new year with your family and friends! We did some fireworks and were back home by 10pm with the boys tucked in their beds by about 10:05. All that excitement and loudness wiped them out, I think. Me? What did I do? I stayed up until the last firework ended at about 1am working on this here blog post. Ha! How’s that for dedication?! I’m so excited to get this new year going! Hope you woke up with a renewed spirit and an eagerness to take on 2016 head first!
Coats. Here in the south we don’t really “do” coats all that often. Kinda sad, ’cause I love a cozy bundled up look. I have a grand total of a whopping three of them in the closet. A great ivory wool peacoat, a buffalo check wrap style and this classic red version that has a leopard lining which was what originally sold me on the coat about 5 years ago(it was the year of the leopard, what can I say?).
A nice warm coat is a great investment piece that will take you through many a winter seasons. And the first of the year is when lots of retailers mark them down, so this is a great time to shop for one if you’re in the market.
I kept this look easy with a plaid and my new favorite red strappy heels. I’m linking up these I’m wearing here and several other options as well for you. I just think there is something so chic about a sleek pair of red heels. The rest of the outfit could be mediocre, but with some ruby slippers on, you are good to go!
What’s on your New Year’s Day agenda? A day of resting? A day of reorganizing and getting the house and such back to normal? I’ll be doing a bit of all of it, I’m thinking. I’ve got plans to reorganize/redecorate my studio space a bit(SO excited about this!), take down the Christmas decorations(not so excited about this) and then plan out some things for next week.
Whatever you’ve got brewing today, I hope it’s a great one! Thanks so much for reading, you guys!
