Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup today! Today’s theme is sparkle and shine for New Year’s Eve.  Once again, I tried to do something a little out of the ordinary.  I’ve noticed since I’ve had a baby I am all about being comfortable.  That’s not to say I don’t like to dress up because I do, but being comfortable while being dressed up is so much more important to me now.  I like this look because I still feel dressed up, but I didn’t have to sacrifice comfort.  The metallic skirt adds some glamour, but then the oversized sweater tones the look down and makes it a little more casual (and hides all those desserts I had over the holidays.)  = )  To add a fun vibe to the outfit, I added in a leopard print clutch, and I had to add some gorgeous metallic pumps.  These Guess pumps are from Off Broadway Shoes, and they are exactly what my closet was missing.  I had a few pairs of metallic sandals, but no pumps that I could wear to help elongate the leg and dress up my look (without freezing my toes off.)  I think they make the whole outfit look classy but still fun for a New Year’s Eve night out.  If you haven’t heard of Off Broadway Shoes yet, you will definitely want to check them out!  They have some great brands – all at great prices.  Some of my favorites are definitely these and these.  Which pair is your favorite?  What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?
Come linkup your sparkly and shiny look, and make sure you check out the featured bloggers below.

Next Tuesday’s theme is scarves.  With the huge blanket scarf trend, I can’t wait to see your favorites!  I even received one of the neatest Christmas gifts – a scarf made into a wreath.  That goes to show how versatile they really are!
