fashion friday: fab tops to ring in the new year

normally NYE means donning my sparkliest dress, tights, and a leather jacket - but this year, I'm doing something different. I scooped up a black and gold metallic peplum top at galeries lafayette in paris this january and have been dying to wear it for oh you know 11 months now. it's a little too much for my usual friday or saturday, and it's with great willpower, that I have yet to wear this fabulous top. 

not to mention, NYE is usually a cold night. my beloved parisian top got me thinking about the modern top + pants combo. elegant, understated, effortless, and warm. I loved wearing my new sparkly dress to my work holiday party - but come NYE, you'll find me as comfortable and shiny as ever in my little gold top (LGT) and little black pants (LBP). 

now that my outfit is planned, I should probably figure out where exactly we'll be going, before I find myself all dressed up with nowhere to go.
