dressed up – new year’s eve.

The struggle of a holiday hangover is real.  And I’m not referring to the amount of wine consumed over the last four days.  There is so much anticipation for Christmas Day – all the planning, buying, baking, wrapping – and after all the gatherings are over, returning to the grind can feel impossible.  Even if we only have a few short days until another long weekend to ring in the New Year.

Regardless of how you’re spending this week, New Year’s Eve never fails to arrive quickly and if you’re like me, decisions on an outfit are always last minute.   Whether we’re attending a swanky party or having a late dinner with friends, I always struggle with what to wear.   Here in the Midwest, you can almost always count on it being frigid cold and right after Christmas, the last thing I want to do is spend another couple hours at the mall.  So, my solution?  Let Zappos save the day!

When I’m in a pinch for last minute outfits or shoes, Zappos is always my first stop.  Great brands, wide range of prices and free shipping both ways.  Hassle free and the 2-day delivery policy still allows time to get an order placed this week for the big night.  Here are my picks for ringing in 2017.


Night Shimmer Mini Dress – Free People
Don’t Wait Mini Dress – Keepsake The Label
Willow Bell Sleeve Dress – For Love And Lemons

A little sparkle is always fun, but contrary to popular belief,  not necessary on New Year’s Eve.  Other great trends that can be equally as fun are lace, bell sleeves or velvet.  Plus, anything can be dressed up with sparkly accessories, heels or a faux fur jacket.
