Y’all…I need help.
Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve, which over the past few years has become one of my favorite holidays – in large part because of the sequins. This year will be my first NYE in Nashville, so I want to do it big!
The biggest party in Nashville is the downtown block party, which this year features Kings of Leon (honestly, I thought their last song was circa 2008, but whatever), Chris Stapleton, Kelsea Ballerini, and others. The whole street is blocked off, they drop a giant music note (of course), and it’s basically Nashville’s version of the Times Square celebration. So, it’ll likely be wonderful mass chaos.
I’m excited about it, but, predictably, after two weeks of unseasonably warm weather, tomorrow night will be in the mid 20s. Even crammed together with 1000s of your closest friends, that’s still cold. Plus, I’ll be standing for hours.
So, what do I wear? Of course I still want to look cute, and if we go inside anywhere afterwards, I need to have something that looks good under my coat. But, I feel like I need to be more practical than the sequin skirt, stilettos, and sleeveless top I wanted to wear…
What do you suggest? Has anyone ever gone to an outdoor/cold NYE block party before? Suggestions? I’m thinking one of those cute knit headband/ear warmer things (I have one with sequins, so that’s perfect), but beyond that, I’m stumped.
Hurry – we’ve got 24 hours to decide!
