striped sequin skirt

The last day of 2018 – can you believe it!? And what a year it has been.  If I could sum up the past year in one word, I’d choose: patience.  And I’m not a patient person, so it’s been a… challenging one for me. Ha! But we’ll get more into that top in tomorrow’s post.

When it comes to dressing for NYE, I like to stay festive and warm.  I’ve shared some holiday outfit inspiration here and last year here, but this look is the vibe I’m going for this year.  A cashmere turtleneck and coat to stay warm, paired with stretchy sequins to ring in the new year in style!

This coat actually belonged to my grandmother.  When she passed away, the ladies in the family went through her jewelry and clothing, picking different pieces to hold onto. I knew I wanted this lightweight yet incredibly soft and warm coat, and I had it altered by my favorite seamstress in Orange County before we moved. We essentially made it two sizes smaller and now the fit is absolutely perfect. It will always remind me of her, and I love that San Francisco weather actually allows me to wear it!

It’s classic yet chic, just like her.

  1. My grandmother died in 1993, and I was grateful to be given her long black coat. In fact, it looks a lot like yours! Twenty five years later, I still think of her every time I wear it. I have a few pieces of her jewelry, but nothing makes me channel a fiery little Irish-American powerhouse more than putting on that coat. I’ve had to have the pockets replaced twice, and I had it re-lined last year; it’s been worth every penny. Hold onto yours- it’s magic!

    1. PEGGY. I love this story – this is so sweet and I can only hope I wear this black coat as much as you’ve loved yours! That is so special!
