Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a nice New Year's Eve. Mine was very casual and I enjoyed that a lot. We played a board game, had some beer, and watched various countdown shows until midnight. There were also sparklers, so that was exciting.
I thought about wearing a fully sequined dress but I was kind of tired and wanted to be able to lounge. That's not exactly easy when you're worried about sequins laying correctly. I was glad I had this black tulle skirt at home! It's festive but also comfortable - especially when paired with a soft vintage t-shirt like this Psychotic State one. This is probably my all-time favorite vintage shirt from Dad and that's saying something because they're all really cool. How can you beat this one though? I figured it made a nice statement about 2013 and the large amount of grad school that took up my life and brain.
Anyway, I tried to add as much sparkle to my outfit as possible with my silver beaded necklace and sparkly ball-shaped earrings. My boots had silver glitter on the back too. Plus my makeup was quite sparkly. Even my lipstick had sparkles! (Matt was not impressed at the amount of micro-glitter on his face at midnight.)

I'm pondering writing a 2013 life recap or goals or something to that extent. Truthfully, 2013 was a pretty crappy year so I'm looking forward to 2014 being marginally less crappy. I know, positivity is just seeping out of me right now!
I really am excited to go through all of my fellow bloggers' end-of-the-year posts today though! I hope 2014 is a better year for all of you! Have a great New Year's Day!
