Hello, party people!
How is your week-before-Christmas going? Are you as distracted as I am?
For some reason, every year, New Years Eve sneaks up on me, so I wanted to get a head start on outfit prep. I personally am in the camp that thinks NYE is a slightly overrated holiday—you feel like you have to have plans, when in reality, you want to be at home in your $12 pajamas drinking Relax Riesling watching Ryan Seacrest. Instead, you’re at a $140-ticket event and you still have to fight your way to the front of the open bar. This year though, I’m switching it up and heading to North Carolina to ring in 2017 with family. We’re throwing my cousin a bridal shower on the 31st and having a big party that evening. It should be a lot of fun, and it was a goal of mine to take advantage of the 10 days I have off to travel some.
Now, let’s talk about what you’re really here for—these Express Sequin Leggings.
I fell in love with them last year a few days after Black Friday, only to discover they were sold out online and at every store within a 50-mile radius of my apartment. I know the latter because I called every Express store and begged them to check the shelves for me. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, right?
Luckily, they restocked these back in October and sold out long before Black Friday, but have restocked them several times since. So, if you’re like me and get obsessive about tracking down the clothing item you just have to have, definitely keep checking the Express website. Despite being covered in sequins, they are surprisingly comfortable. I also found they ran a little large, so I sized down and love pairing them with black accessories so they really pop.
While I usually opt for a dress for NYE, this year, you can bet I’ll be wearing these sequin leggings. Cheers to 2017! x
