Another year...

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had an enjoyable New Year's! I spent my New Year's hosting a sleepover with my daughter and her friend.  I didn't think they'd be up as late as they were but I guess 3 year-olds like to get down like everyone else!  Watching them made me realize how much older I am getting.  You know you're getting old if 1) sitting "indian style" hurts your knees and 2) you feel like you've been beaten by a gladiator after sleeping on the floor for 30 minutes. This morning I was so not in the mood to dress up in anything but all black. What changed my mind was my skinny jeans I got from Eloquii a few weeks ago.  Now I know I did a review on the jean and it wasn't a glowing review.  But something about them being 50% off was enough to change my mind.  Also, the red jean is so vibrant in person that I instantly fell in love with them the moment I put them on.  I decided to buy the 14W so I could achieve a more fitted look.  If you recall, the size 16's in my video review were very ripply in the thigh area.  These fit perfectly and because they are a size smaller, the inseam is the perfect length.  So what does one wear with a bright red jean? A tuxedo jacket! There is something about the black, white and red color combo that I can't get enough of.  If you look back at my previous posts, you'll see a similar pattern in this regard.  I feel that the jeans give the outfit the perfect pop while not detracting from the style of the jacket.  What do you think?

Tuxedo blazer: F21
Silky chemise: Old Navy
Jean: Eloquii
Shoes: Old Navy
Earrings: ASOS
Necklace:  The strap from an old clutch

Can we take a second to talk about resolutions for 2012?  Do you make them?  I've resolved to shop less, volunteer more, and be more active.  I'll be happy if I can achieve at least 2 of the 3!
