The countdown to THE countdown is on! New Years Eve is just a few days away, do you have your outfit picked out?! If you’re anything like me you prefer to wait until the very last second (11am on NYE) and it becomes a very stressful shopping experience. I always end up spending way more when I shop last minute because I settle for the first thing that catches my eye. This year I decided to avoid said shopping trip and planned my outfit well in advance. I tried on a few dresses at other stores but this was the first one I found to hit all my marks (had to have sequins and couldn’t be too tight). Plus its very affordable too which is so important (because who actually ends up re-wearing their NYE outfit??). I paired it with very simple silver accessories because the dress really speaks for itself!
I also want to talk about my favorite new accessory for NYE this year, which is my gorgeous moonstone Ringly ring. Ringly is a smart ring that connects to an app on your phone via bluetooth. When you get a notification on your phone, your Ringly will vibrate on your finger and subtly flash different colors. In the app, you can customize flash colors and vibrations specific to certain notifications (i.e. pink for a text, green for a call, etc), or you can also assign a specific color to different people! The discreet cocktail ring design means only you can tell that it’s actually wearable tech. There are a variety of different metals and stones to choose from, so you can pick one that really suits your style (loving this one and this one). It’s absolutely perfect for NYE parties because in a loud, crowded bar it can be easy to miss an important text or call without being on your phone all night! With Ringly, you can keep your phone safely tucked away in your chic clutch while you enjoy the night with loved ones. If you do get a text or call that is urgent, Ringly will let you know! I’ve been wearing mine nonstop for about two weeks now and I can truthfully say that it is the coolest piece of wearable tech I own (I have an Apple Watch too!!). Ringly is super stylish and fits into my outfits seamlessly. I honestly cannot say enough great things about this ring! You can get 10% off your very own Ringly by using code ‘STYLISHSIDE10’!! Shop them all here.
Wishing you and yours a healthy and happy New Years! Cheers!!
