New Years with Express

Happy Tuesday! I’m so excited to be teaming up with Express today to share three looks: 2 for NYE and one for New Year’s Day. At the end of this post, I’ll also be sharing the best places to have a New Year’s Day brunch in Miami or in NYC. Express has all of my favorite items from chunky knits to fun skirts and gorgeous dresses. For New Years, I wanted to share 3 fun looks that appeal to every style. Also, everything is currently 50% off so might as well take advantage while you can!

Knits + metallics for a fun and edgy GNO New Year’s Eve: this bronze metallic skirt is hands down one of my favorite skirts I own. It’s so comfortable, can be dressed up or down and the color is amazing. I’m wearing a size small but probably could have gone down to an extra small. The pleats make it feminine while the metallic hue plays it a little less safe and makes it more edgy. I paired the skirt with this cozy black long sleeve pullover that comes in so many colors and is seriously the softest! I love how it continues to play on the edgy look, which is a perfect outfit for a New Year’s Eve out with the girls dancing the night away. I could see myself wearing this to dinner and then a lounge to bring in the New Year. Pair it with these lace heels to take it up a notch and make it that much more glamorous. 

Sweet Lace for the lovely lady on New Year’s Eve: now, you all should know by now how in love I am with this dress. I wore it to my graduation on Thursday and will be wearing it on New Year’s Eve, too. This is the kind of dress you wear on New Year’s Eve when you’re going to a nice dinner, a nightclub, or out on a romantic night with your significant other. Bring a small cross body so you can be hands free while enjoying sweet champagne and overlooking the city of Miami (or NYC, or wherever you may be!). This is the kind of dress that is a showstopper, no matter where you go. Best part? It’s 50% off, too! I’m wearing a size 6 and it’s perfect. The mock neck adds a unique touch to the already delicate lace and it also comes in other colors (including black and red!). 

Knit Sweater Dress for New Year’s Day Brunch: let’s be honest, on New Year’s Day we are almost always lying in bed contemplating whether or not we want to get up and go get brunch. Getting dressed is a mission and we just aren’t feeling it. Well, in this ultra cozy knit sweater dress, consider New Year’s Day brunch the best idea you’ve ever had. It’s comfortable, warm (great for cooler temps!) and flattering on all body types. I also absolutely love this one if you want to spice things up a bit. Wear comfy flats and head out the door because your friends (and mimosas) await you!This New Years, for me it’s all about New Year’s Day. 2017 is going to bring so many new exciting and slightly terrifying journeys, yet I can’t wait for it to start. I can’t wait to sit with my closest friends on New Year’s Day while sipping some mimosas, eating delicious food and laughing about 2016 while looking forward to all that is to come in 2017. Thanks to Express, I can celebrate in style. 

Thank you to Express for sponsoring this post!
