A New Year

                                                           Shirt- H&M
                                                           Skirt- Vintage
                                                           Tights- Target
                                                           Shoes- ASOS
                                                           Pom-Pon headband- made by me, in the shop!

This isn't really my New Year's Eve outfit, but I'd thought I post it because it's one of my favorites. I'm big fan of colors that look like they belong on a 1970s couch! Plus, the skirt is wool, so it's super warm! I would like to say that the shoes are comfy, but that would be a lie.  Actually, it's probably just the fact that I am horrible at walking in heels.  I'm sure no respectable blogger would admit that, but I have no pride or shame, so it's out there now! There's pretty much no high heel that I can wear that I will not look ridiculous walking in, but that doesn't stop me from attempting it anyway. I can't quit you!
 Annnyway, it's New Year's Eve day! I hope everyone has amazing plans and fancy attire! I'm going to be spending the afternoon taking pictures and play games with Sarah! What are all of your plans?
I don't really have any words of inspiration (that's not really my forte), but I do hope everyone has a safe holiday!

P.S. I'm going to tack on one other non-outfit picture to this post. I had a pair of oxfords that I never wore because they were kind of the same color as old lady Easy Spirits, and whenever I put them on, I couldn't help but be reminded of a nursing home. Instead of getting rid of them, I decided to spray paint them bright colors, and now I love them.  I think they might be my favorite thing I've DIYed, and I just thought I would share! The picture was taken on my crappy phone camera, so I apologize for that in advance!



  1. great inspiration! love the first pic!
    thanks for sharing!

  2. I love your necklace and shoes! Too bad they're not comfy... I totally feel you about this issue - I rarely find pretty shoes that are comfy too.
    Happy new year!

  3. I love the colors; so 70s.
    I also love the shoes you featured! Such a fun color.

    Happy New Year!

  4. I love the skirt! very cute! Hope you had a great NYE!

    love from San Francisco,

  5. Hehe, I'm notorious for say, "nahh, these shoes don't hurt," when they are actually killing, too! If it's any consolation at all, they look simply darling with this outfit...Hey, I don't see anything wrong with looking like a '70's couch.' I think it's adorable ❤

  6. i also love any 70's style and this looks amazing. lovely outfit! The shoes look great, i reckon walking in heals takes practice. when i was pregnant i was in flats the whole time, 9 months (and a bit) later i couldnt wear them for the life of me. but well and truly back in the heels now after a bit of practice! :D

  7. Oh my goodness! You are absolutely adorable! Thanks for leaving your link on my blog!
