2012 in Technicolor

Happy New Year! 

I hope you’re as excited about the new year as I am. And I hope you’re feeling good this morning and not overly hungover. I spent that last night of 2011 gorging myself on Chinese food, making loads of noise, and laughing. A lot. I even got a midnight smooch (thanks to my dear friend Hayley), so the year is off to a good start. The one thing I didn’t do last night is bring out my Nikon, so I’m stuck with one fuzzy outfit photo and 2 instagram shots of my accessories.


Getting dressed for a night out always involves some level of judgement. The only full-length mirror in the house is in my parents bedroom, so I usually have an audience when trying to decide what to wear. Like last night. My first 5 outfits were vetoed, and when I decided on this one, the following conversation ensued:

Me: Is this skirt too short?
Mom: Well… for a 28-year old it is. But you don’t look 28 yet, so I guess it’s okay.
Me: Oooookay. Thanks…I think. (Internal dialogue: Did my mom call my skirt slutty??)


On an unrelated note, anyone have space for a blogger and her two cats? I promise not to make too much noise! In the end, my mom was right. The skirt was really, really short. But I used girl logic (opaque black tights make anything short look acceptable) and went about my night. Now, when I said technicolor, I meant it. Dig it, man.

shirt- Old Navy
skirt- Swapped
boots- Jeffrey Campbell
necklace- H&M


Ikat nail stickers (from here), DIY neon rhinestone bracelet, gorgjana wrap bracelet, and random beaded bracelets.


My fortune for 2012. I am downright giddy about it as it seems like an excuse to be ridiculous on multiple occasions.


How was your New Years Eve?

    Happy New Year Najeema! That skirt if definitely NOT too short. But when in doubt, add some matte black tights. You know I am a huge fan of this technicolor look, the perfect way to ring in the new year, and can you believe the freaking weather? How can we be wearing skirts in January?! I love it.

    As I said on Instagram, those nails are funky; love them! Happy New Year!  I don’t think the skirt is too short, but I like that you use girl logic.

    The skirt doesn’t look too short in the picture, but maybe that’s because you have tights on. Regardless, you look great. Love the color-blocked outfit and funky nails & bracelets!

    It doesn’t look too short. And I firmly believe that black opaque tights make even the summer-iest of dresses pre-fall and the shortest of dresses decent.

       You look awesome! I love the proportions and the colors. And those nail stickers are so cool! Happy 2012!

    I LOVE this outfit!  Who makes the skirt that you have?  I want to find something like that- the pink and orange combo too!

      I got the skirt at a clothing swap and the name on the tag is completely rubbed off. I bet you could find a great bright red mini at Zara or J.Crew though!
