Snow Shine

Skirt? Milli in Hamilton, super clearance (another sweet sequin maxi here) Sweater? Thrifted 
Boots? Canadian Tire

This is what I wore for New Years when we were still up north. I figured I would start the new year with people I love, in a skirt I love. To be honest, the skirt never quite made it to midnight because after these pictures were taken, I was on dinner duty and with sweet potato poutine on the menu, I didn't want to have a gravy accident. 
Post dinner I dutifully put on my party skirt again, only to change into my snow pants to go tobogganing. And after that exertion, I was done/stick a fork in me, so the fact that I (barely) stayed awake to midnight was the accomplishment. I'm not even upset about this skirt getting trumped by snow pants either... I've worn this skirt more than I ever would have thought when I bought it; first to my brother's wedding, then to a holiday party and now that I've worn it in the Canadian wilderness (ok, the Canadian wilderness gets far more wilderness-y than what we experienced...), the next logical step is wearing it to get my oil changed. Nah... scratch that, I actually just got that done. The next logical step is clearly wearing it to the dentist, I'm overdue for a visit, I think I have a cavity and I'm a little scared... Sequins may just take the edge off.

You look like a snow mermaid! I don't think that's really a thing, but it should be.

Yen the skirt is an absolute BEAUTY (probably why it suits you so much)!!! I think you should wear it to the dentist, and everywhere else. Especially with the wellies ;))

This is the perfect Canadian balance for a New Years outfit! Stylish & sparkly with sweater included. It sounds like my NYE was similar to yours, the woods, dinner and outdoor adventuring. We even raced lobsters! The only thing missing was your sweet potato poutine.. clearly

Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way. And don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines. See the link below for more info.

Tara- Ha, just saw this now but it is a kind of purple lipstick. Which, in hindsight probably got even more intense in the cold...
