Playgrounds & Lollipops - Early Bird Special

Here I sit at 10 o'clock in the morning all dressed up in sequins and silk lame.  We used to joke at the old company I worked at, known for their bedazzled jackets and tops decked out in sequins and paillettes, that a woman in Dallas would wear something like this out to lunch.  Well hello Dallas, here I come.  After this I'm taking the kids to the park and Target.  I think it's about time we turn things around here in casual Southern California.

But seriously, here's a little preview of what I'll be wearing tomorrow night for New Year's Eve.  We've never been much for going out on New Year's, too much pressure I think.  And since having kids we have the perfect excuse to stay in.  This year though we have reservations with some close friends at a favorite local restaurant at 6 pm, which gives us plenty of time to get home and ring in the New Year with the kids at 9 pm.  Does anyone else here on the West Coast watch the East Coast feed on New Year's?  The kids love staying up and blowing their horns.   I love being able to say I rung in the New Year, when really I was snug in my bed with my Kindle and pillow pet.
Outfit Details:
Top: Loft
Skirt: Loft
Belt: St. John
Tights: Donna Karan
Booties: Stuart Weitzman

Wishing all of you out there, even you way in the back, lurking around, a very Happy New Year!  Please be safe out there and enjoy, whatever you do!  I'll see you back here in 2011!

Much Love!

  3. Ah, bummer. Looks like I can't follow your blog. You're entirely too cute!

    New Year's is a total bust once you're a parent. And, yes, here in AZ I am alllll about ringing it in with the East Coasters!

  4. I love your outfit! Hope you have a happy New Years!

  5. pretty pretty! i'm one of those who gets the "why are you so dressed up?" comment a lot in the middle of a weekday. because i dont think i am! if you get asked, just say: "it's just how i roll."

  6. I love how your haloed in that picture with the kiddos.
    And I wish I could pull off booties. I think I'm too old.
    Looking good. Celebrate away. I'll be lucky to be out my yoga pants.

  9. HI Andrea Happy New Year...I agree with you, I like to ring in the new year East Coast time on the west coast!:) And I am very much against driving late(or early am on New Year Day) and I put strict orders that my teenagers were staying home! Don't want to start the year off being a nervous wreck with my kiddies on the roads....Happy New Year to you and your family and your outfit is very nice...timeless and classy just like you:)
