When we were first married, we really wanted to go out somewhere fun together to ring in the new year. But, our finances were incredibly tight at the time & we knew it wasn't wise to splurge on an expensive evening out. So, we did the next best thing & chose to get all dressed up in our fanciest clothes, make a candlelight dinner at home and watch the ball drop. I still have such fond memories of that night, sitting in that tiny apartment in our formal clothes, laughing together & realizing that we didn't even miss the gourmet meal or the crowded dance floor...because what we had at home was all we really needed.
Not everyone has the budget to afford a fancy NYE meal, but that doesn't mean you can't get dressed up & enjoy the evening, even if you're just staying at home! Though it may seem a little early, I'm sharing this post now for those of you who are shopping for a NYE look, so you can order to ensure it arrives in time for your big night out (or night in!). I've put together 8 head-to-toe looks below using budget-friendly pieces in different styles, colors & silhouettes. If you're looking for something specific that you don't see here, feel free to email me & I'll be happy to help you track it down!
