When I was a kid, we’d spend New Year’s Day celebration the holidays with my dad’s side of the family. And even back then, I remember being plagued by the same sartorial challenges I now find myself facing any time I get together with my husband’s family. I want to dress nice (because it’s a holiday) but I don’t want to be overdressed. This was especially true for our New Year’s Day family gatherings growing up, since they were at my aunt’s house, which was on top of a mountain. (Not exactly a place to get super dressed up.) Since then, I’ve at least developed a go-to look that makes me feel a little fancy without being ridiculously overdressed – jeans, heeled ankle boots, and a killer statement necklace. This is a perfect look if you’ve got to head out on New Year Day’s, but it’s also just a great everyday look during those cold winter months when you want to look fabulous without going too fancy.
PS. This one of a kind statement necklace is available now in my online store. And, don’t let the big size fool you. It’s totally comfortable and perfect for everyday wear!
