Can you believe 2016 is almost over? I guess having 2 kids, a full-time job, and running a blog really do that to you, huh?! And with 2016 ending signifies that we’ll get to celebrate the beginning of 2017; and that means New Year’s Eve Party!!!
I know! I know! We’re not going to some bar on New Year’s Eve and party ’til we drop like we used to; I’ll be ringing in the New Year at the comfort of our home instead – playing with my 2 beautiful kids and probably have a few bottles of beers with my husband and parents after the kids go to bed.
But for those of you who are planning to go out, I decided to create a look I’d wear if we were going out to give you a little inspiration for when you ring in 2017. I’ve always associated New Year with anything that sparkles so I decided to take my sequined tank top out of my closet and wore it with my gray jogger pants; then threw on my black jacket for that classic look. Wearing my green ankle boots with this outfit added a good pop of color; and made this classy look fun which is just perfect for ringing in the New Year.
Just like in Sparkling With Plaid – A Holiday Outfit Inspiration + Giveaway, all of these are pieces that I already got to enjoy for a few years. It’s really fun to mix and match old pieces of clothing because it saves you some money and you get more use out of your clothes.

New Year Reflection
As fun as going out and partying on New Year’s Eve may sound, I don’t really miss that part of my life since I was able to fully enjoy it before having kids. Just like most parents, I do have a different definition of what is fun now. Fun for me, nowadays, is whatever brings a smile to my kids’ faces or makes them laugh. Seeing them having fun is all that matters to me.
Here’s to saying goodbye to 2016 with a big smile on our faces for all the blessings it, along with God, brought our way. Let’s welcome 2017 with the same enthusiasm even though we know there’ll be humps along the way. Let’s embrace the New Year with all the blessings and challenges it will bring us; because no matter how tough it may get, in the end of it all, we’ll come out wiser and stronger than before; and if we’re lucky, beside the most important people in our lives.
