Do any of you ever plan an outfit before you even have a place to go? That's exactly what happened to me this NYE! When you think of New Year's, usually sequined, glamourous dresses come to mind. Weeks before NYE, I came across this beautiful number from Molly Suzanne and my sequin-loving heart fell head-over-heels! My mind envisioned me all dressed up for the evening, clinking champagne glasses with my beau and friends, and ringing in 2014 in style!

Alas, I spent all day on the 31st driving 7 hours from my family's home, back to my apartment at school. When I arrived, I was exhausted and had TONS of bags to unpack. Adam graciously helped me haul my baggage to my second floor apartment, and with the final load, we both agreed that staying in for the evening was the best option! We invited his brother and sister-in-law over, cooked a huge steak dinner, and played board games. And popped some bubbly. Ok, a generous amount of bubbly ;). As sad as I was to see this stunner hang on the hanger all evening, I was so happy with my reality: a night in, snuggled up with some of my favorite people!

It's funny how the non-plan plans end up being some of the best nights. And don't worry, my sequined love and I will make our debut together when the time is right... :)

Thanks for reading, and have a great Tuesday! Be sure to follow along via Bloglovin'FacebookTwitter, and Instagram

  2. The SAME thing happened to me! I have this adorable LC Lauren Conrad sequin skirt that I wanted to wear but freezing cold temperatures and no major plans kept my guy and I from doing something small and just relaxing in! Hopefully I can wear my skirt soon too! PS Your nail color is one of my faves too :)

  3. Similar situation - fancy dinner and a night out with my guy turned into going to my cousins' house, ordering sushi and endless bottles of champagne. IT WAS THE BEST!
