I'm the type of person that, if I don't plan an outfit in advance, I'm guaranteed to show up 45 minutes late, my bedroom will look like a bomb went off, and I will most likely end up in the very first outfit I had on........and I will be unhappy about it all! (My old roomates, who may be reading this, can attest to this fact as they repeatedly saw it happen in our 5 years of living together.)
That is NOT the way I want to start the evening.
So, I did a little planning today:
(Lest you be fooled this is of course NOT me on the red carpet but the look I'm after with items from my closet.) I love that the jacket, tee, and leggings can easily be mixed and matched with so many other items in my closet. The scarf and accessories is what will make the outfit in this case.
Anyway, I came across this shirt/dress on pinterest and LOVE it but can't find the source anywhere:
...and in all honestly, whatever the price is I'm not sure I want to spend much money on a dress that I could realistically only wear a few times; because, let's face it, I'm not going to wear this while I drop my son off at preschool or run to the grocery store.
I'd rather spend my money on basic shirts that can easily be mixed and matched or dressed up or down based on my mood. Here, two of my newer shirts that would be dressed up with a scarf that has the same feel as the dress pictured above:
Do you have big plans for New Years Eve? Do you take it as a chance to get decked out, or do you dress for comfort?
