What I Wore Wednesday: 30/60th Birthday Party

Fair Isle Skulls

This past Friday was my Mother-in-Law's 60th and Sister-in-Law's 30th Birthday Party--they share a birthday, the day after Blondie Boy's (party was earlier to catch people home for holidays), so they shared a party, too! Blondie Boy's Auntie Jefy was nice enough to watch him so NotBlondeHusband and I could both attend since BB wouldn't be allowed in the pub after 8pm.

NBH wore the Fair Isle Skull Cardigan I got him for Christmas with some jeans but I didn't have as easy of a time picking out what I was going to wear. It was absolutely blowing a gale outside so a dress or skirt was out of the question.


At first I'd planned to wear my gold sequinned sweatshirt that I got over a year ago and still haven't worn but I wasn't 100% comfortable in it and then NBH said he liked a second top I tried on so I went with that.  The whole outfit was based around my new studded heels I got in the New Look sale for just £10!


Sequins and Studs

Sequin Embellished Sweater-New Look
Skinny Jeans-Old Navy

Nude Stud Heels

Studded Nude Heels-New Look

Skull Gem Eyes Pendant

How cool is this silver skull necklace NBH got me for Christmas? It has Tanzanite eyes as well even though somehow they look really washed out in this photo they are a light blue shade of Tanzanite.

Metallic Spike Ring

I got this spiky ring in the New Look sale too for just £1. I wasn't sure about it but I figured for £1 I could take the risk and I LOVE it! It's a bit over the top and only fits on my pinky but it is one of my new favourites!

We had a great night celebrating both birthdays and I managed to make it through the whole night without taking off my shoes or stabbing anyone with my ring :) I'm sure lots of you will be linking up New Year's Eve outfits this week but NBH was working so while I did have a play around with chalking my hair no fancy outfit for me! What did you do for New Year's Eve? Do you prefer to go out or stay in?
