OOTD: Ringing it in Blue + Giveaway

Happy New Year my loves!

How has 2012 been treating you so far? I hope great! And I hope you had a safe and happy New Year’s Eve. The hubby and I rang in the new year with our family. We went over to my mother-in-law’s house and ate, watched the ball drop in New York City, and ate our 12 grapes (for good luck). My friend even came over to hang out, which was awesome!

I knew it was going to be a comfy night, so I decided to wear this sweater dress my mom bought me a couple of Christmases ago, leggings, Lane Bryant jewelry and my new favorite Steve Madden platforms. I swear you’re going to see these shoes a lot!

I know 2012 is going to be “the” year! Here’s to you and yours on the first day of the year! And to start it off right, I have a spontaneous giveaway for you. I just thought of this while I was writing this post. I’m going to make this really easy too!

Leave a comment below and tell me what you wore on New Year’s Eve and what you hope to accomplish in 2012. Must answer both questions! The winner will get a $25 Lane Bryant gift card!

  • Angela

    I wore Lane Bryant Simply Straight Jeans, Gap tank top and Eloquii sequin shirt!

  • I wore my favorite jeans, black top, black and purple scarf and boots. New clothes desperately needed!

  • You look beautiful—love the blue! I also had a casual NYE at home with family. I wore a white blouse and my @eloquii red, skinny jeans. I added some sparkle with my jewelry! The biggest thing that I plan to accomplish in 2012 is getting my new blog up and running–it’s under construction right now:). Happy 2012!

  • I wore a black & gold strapless dress with a black jacket, stockings, and black high heel wedges (wedges weren’t as fashionable as heels, but much kinder to my feet!) As for 2012; keep building my photography business, and my social media skills.

  • I took a risk and went for denim on denim. I wore Old Navy skinny jeans, over sized Mossimo tank, a denim/hoodie jacket, and suede purple DV for Dolce Vita pumps.

  • I hope to cross off lots of career and education goals off my to do list this year and as far as personal accomplishments just continue to be a good friend, sister, daughter and overall human being.

  • I was wearing pajamas… naturally, lol. I hope to be a blogging superstar like you! Seriously. I may even try to write a book. 🙂

    I hope to live a healthier lifestyle this year. We also seem to be so strapped for time, and junk food and lack of exercise seems to go hand in hand with lack of time. I need to make more time to exercise, and cook healthy meals! Not because I am unhappy with my body, I love myself, and my husband loves me just the way I am, but I need to be able to be more active for my 2yr olds sake! I can barely keep up! And… For new years eve I wore a purple and embellished neckline shirt with dark blue jeans, and silver heels. Love the shirt, I actually bought it at Lane Bryant!

  • What am I not going to accomplish? The main thing I hope to accomplish starting a new business for myself.

  • I wore my dark blue skinny jeans, a black v-neck sweater and my black military jacket that is sooo cute! What I plan on accomplishing this year is happiness. Sounds stupid to some but, I have been dragged through hell in 11 and I plan to make 12 so much more better.

  • Charline Williams

    I wore a nice dress and I hope to be more focused in 2012.

  • Laura

    I worse black skinnies and a neon blouse. In 2012 I hope to move into a new apartment, get a promotion, and get in better shape.

  • I wore a yours clothing lace top with a sleeveless LBD from Ross and Lane Bryant lace peep toe booties. I hope to graduate with my 2 bachelors degrees and find a job that I love and will pay the bills.

  • Patricia

    I wore a cardi vest, with a white long sleeve top and my favortie jeans. We had a very very causual family get together. I hope to enjoy life more and stress less. There are some things that are beyond my control and I need to realize that!

  • atiya m

    i wore a colorful wrap dress from ashley stewart with black knee high boots from torrid and i hope to finally finish my grant for my non profit and find scholarships for school

  • Hope Varnedoe

    I wore a pair of gray leggings, knee high black boots, a black sweater with a grey belt and lots of silver bangles and jewelry and a black/silver/gold scarf. I am finally beginning to dress fashionable for the size I AM rather than waiting “till I lose weight.” I hope in the new year to embrace who I am just as I am more, yet still pursue health and strength, to have a body that does what I want it to when I want it to.

  • Rhian

    I wore my new dark wash bootcut jeans with my silver tank top (good thing I live in AZ)! And this year I hope to accomplish passing my comprehensive exams!

  • I wore my pjs since I didn’t go out on New Years Eve, I’ve been unemployed for a long time and on a tight budget. This year I’m praying a job will happen real soon, but until then I am continuing to work hard at getting my photography business successful. I’m dreaming of a day when I don’t have to rely on working for someone else and can make a living by making people happy one photograph at a time.

  • Mike

    I wore jeans and a t-shirt for a comfy evening at home. I hope to win more stuff in contests and sweepstakes! 😉

  • kellyann

    My husband had to work at a his bar so I went because the entire night they had 80’s music playing on one floor and dance on the other.
    Ok so I wore probably the cheapest ensemble ever. All old navy and payless. $15 grey cardigan, $8 long purple tank, $4 black leggings, $12 grey flats, $6 necklace and a free gold purse handed down to me from a friend…oh and of cpurse…SPANX 😉
    What I want out of 2012 is to accept my size, my weight, my age, myself. I’m wasting and have wasted so much time being hard on myself and being my worst enemy. It’s such an uneccesary stress in my life.

  • My New Year’s Eve was rather casual as I stayed home. I work gray yoga pants and my favorite Lane Bryant white cable sweater. For 2012 I hope to accomplish saving money to move to NYC or SF. We shall see which city I pick.

    In 2012 I hope to expand and build my mark business as well as finish my design program at school do I can start my own line or open up a store:)

  • I think I wore a sweatshirt and some jeans. We had my sister and her family over for chili. It was really nice, the kids played and we hung out.
