New Years Eve 1 (Home with Friends)

New Year's Eve for the 50, 60 & 70 year old women.

New Year’s Eve for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Home Version

Quote of the day: “Be the person you needed when you were younger.” Ayesha A. Siddiqi

I know, for me, New Year’s Eve is not the all exciting holiday anymore. I have a hard time staying awake until midnight and I don’t love being out in all the bustle and commotion. Therefore, I thought I’d start this series with the all realistic version of what we do and where we go for the night! We stay home or close to home. But even though we take it easy, it’s still nice to add a little umph to your outfit especially if you will be around others. In this instance, I put on my fur ribbed turtleneck, Nancy has on a glittery tank top and mom added shiny flats!

Here are some fun sweaters you could wear for hanging out: (with another set shown on Facebook on Wednesday!)

  • Kathleen McDermott

    All charming. The touches of fur, sparkle and shine are just right. (Love the word “snood”. It tickles me like the word “bodkin”.)

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I have to admit my ignorance on the word bodkin. Of course I googled it, but I’d never heard it before!! Like my mom always say–you learn something new every day!! Thanks for my lesson today, Kathleen!!

  • I’m sure I commented on this the other day but it doesn’t seem to have kept my comment. I love your jumper, Jodie, with that fun neckline and cuffs. And the colour is so unusual too. It looks alot of fun!

    And so too are Nancy’s red jeans and your Mum’s owl necklace – that’s lovely.

  • Ha! I love the name of the shop!

    That sweater is SO 1950’s! And the colour is wonderful!

    We often used to stay home for New Years but last year went out and really enjoyed it. We found a place that has a big band and great food. I think we are going to go to it again this year. Very old fashioned but high class fun.

    • I do love staying home, but every once in a while I get the itch to do something different…if only for the reason to dress up!!! Maybe next year!

  • Great outfits and the accessories are super. Thanks for sharing at the Senior Salon.

  • Cute cute CUTE!!! Love the accessories too. 🙂

    • Thanks…because what is an outfit without accessories, right?

  • Jodie, your jumper is adorable! It almost has a 50s feel about it and the colour is great. I agree with you about New Year. I find it all abit overblown to be honest. Venues hike their prices, taxis even higher! I’d much rather stay home with friends and neighbours and have an open house with lots of good food and bubbles!

    • Thanks Jacqueline!! I’m loving the light blue lately —and who doesn’t love a little faux fur? And another advantage to staying home is not having to worry about how much of the bubbly we drink!!!
