Happy New Year, gal pals! Whoohoo! I'm happy to be back and blogging. I'm starting this new year off by sharing my sparkly New Year's Eve look. Although, I have to apologize for not posting this sooner since I've been very sick this past week. I'm beginning to feel much better and couldn't wait to go through and edit all these photos to share with you. I hope your first week of 2017 has been a great one to begin with! I know I am oh-so excited for this fresh new start. 2017 is looking pretty bright ahead, isn't it? I feel like a lot of my same goals are coming with me from 2016, but what better way to begin a shiny new year than with lots of sparkle. Am I right?

You can never go wrong with a little sparkle and shine. There's actually a funny little story behind this pretty skirt. I searched high and low for a cute sequin or tulle skirt for my birthday, last October, because I wanted to share a birthday look here on For All Things Pretty. Sadly, I didn't find anything that fit what I was looking for back then. A week later, I went on my weekly trip to Target (anyone else obsessed with Target? 🙋🏻 ) and saw this cute little gold sequin skirt hanging there, just waiting for me to pick it up. Since it was a bit too late for a birthday look, I decided it would be perfect for the holidays. And perfect it was! New Year's Eve is never complete without some sparkle and shine! I paired it with my favorite 3/4 sleeved cream colored sweater and a pair of taupe fringe heels that I also scored at Target last season. I'm telling you, the Target obsession is real! A few accessories, like this perfect pair of Karen Walker sunnies from Shop Ditto, my favorite monthly sunglass service that delivers designer eyewear to your doorstep (use code FORALLTHINGSPRETTYXO to get your first pair for free), a blush mani and matching tassel clutch, plus a few confetti poppers completed this sparkly look. 

I'm so excited for the beginning of a shiny new year. I have so many plans and goals for this year and can't wait to share them with you in a whole new post. For now, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support. Thank you for visiting and reading my posts and for all the hearts and comments on Instagram. I hope you enjoyed this gold look as much as I did. I sure do enjoy a little sparkle! As always, thank you so much for taking a moment of your day to stop by. See you back here on Monday morning for a brand new post!

Happy weekend!
