Say Goodbye To Say Hello

Hi kiddies,

I lied. It wasn’t intentional but I’m willing to admit it happened. If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (if not here’s you’re chance) you may already know about my dirty little secret. Days ago I posted a sneak peek of the next blog post but that’s not the post before you. Being New Year’s Eve this outfit was shouting to be shown but I promise the other one will not be lost to posterity heh. My apologies but hopefully you’ll find this equally festive. So with that out of the way…  What are you doing New Years Eve?

IMG 0917 960x640  Say Goodbye To Say HelloWhat you wear NYE all depends on your plans of course. Over the years my NYE nights have run the gamut from GRAND, EXTRAVAGANT, OVER THE TOP productions to working into the wee small hours of hours of the morning or even falling asleep without acknowledgment of times ticking hands. No offense to Mr. T but my favorite memories of December 31st are from childhood. Spending the night with my grandparents and cousins staying up late, eating treats, setting off firecrackers and watching the ball drop on TV. Dick Clark anyone? There was an innocence during those years and no matter the problem I felt like all was right in the world.

I took these pictures while I was home in SC for Christmas but I love this look for a NYE outfit. For smaller gatherings I think it has a perfect amount of sparkle but is a nice change from the principal dress. I thought about wearing a different shirt underneath but denim adds a relaxed, casual element. I adore these shorts! They have a wonderful sheen while the color is unexpected and versatile. You may remember seeing them here and also herenye 960x960  Say Goodbye To Say HelloThis outfit would be fine without the necklace but I love the extra punch it adds. It’s one of my favorite purchases along with my adored Elvin booties! What do you think? Is this something you’d be happy wearing? The comfort factor on this is a bonus when it comes to dancing. Just give me room to move and I’m ready to go. Plus with shorts and opaque tights there are no worries about getting caught in pictures unawares. Yhatzee!

After all, we did survive the end of the world, right? I’m not perfect and never will be but if steps are taken then growth is possible. Self expression is a gift and your companionship on that journey makes this experience extraordinary for me. Thank you for all your support and bearing with me as I explore the world that is Manners and Moxie.
