Since this is the first outfit I am showing you, it is automatically the BEST of 2016! Did you party last night, or did you stay at home? Joe and I were invited to a New Year’s Eve party, and this what I picked out to wear. This is one of those outfits I just feel pretty in. When that happens, you know it is a keeper.I was actually kind of dreading going to the party. I knew everybody that was going to be there, but I am not close friends with any of them. You know the kind I am talking about; when you meet them at the Post Office you greet each other and have small talk for about 3 – 4 minutes, then you leave. But, they are not the one that you call up and invite to go shopping. I do not do well in these kind of social situations. I am shy by nature, and I feel like I am intruding if I go up to people talking.If you are going to feel uncomfortable, you need to at least feel like you looked good. The party was not going to be “fancy”, but I did not want to show up being under dressed. So I decided on this lurex chevron sweater from Cato’s that I picked up early this fall. I originally passed on this sweater when I saw it in the store. However, I got to thinking about wearing it with winter white pants, and went back and bought it. I tried to show the silver threading that runs all through the top, but the photo just wouldn’t pick it up. This is one of those sweaters you just need to see in person. I have on a bauble bracelet in dark gray and several pearl bracelets.I don’t get a lot of chances to carry this metal and lucite purse, so I take every opportunity I can. I like the shininess of the purse, it mimics the lurex threads. The pants are old, I bought them years ago at Stein-Mart, another one of my favorite stores. Here is a pair of similar pants, but these look more for summer.
I hope you liked my best outfit of 2016. BTW, in case you were wondering how the party went, we didn’t go. LOL! We decided to just stay home, sit on the couch and watch football. Sweatshirt and sweatpants ended up being the ball dropping outfit. Did you really want to see that???
