This New Years, my husband and I are heading to Newport, RI for the long weekend with another couple. We're staying at The Chanler in the Louis XVI room, which we've heard great things about, and apart from the Cliff Walk and Breakers mansion tour, we plan on eating and drinking our way through the weekend. #champagnediet
Giving little thought to my New Year's Eve outfit, I decided on a comfortable black jumpsuit (this one) that I bought a few weeks ago right off the rack, because you never know when you might need a LBJ (little black jumpsuit?). As for footwear, I'll be wearing my new favorite Manolo Blahnik velvet bow mules (comfort is key if I'm going to make it past midnight in the Boom Boom Room), vintage crystal drop earrings and a mini Chanel quilted bag. Last but not least, it wouldn't be a NYE party if at some point throughout the night I'm not wearing kitschy Happy New Year headwear.
