3 Ways to Look Fab *and* Feel Cozy on New Year’s Eve
It’s almost time to usher out the old and welcome in the new — year, that is! And we couldn’t be more thrilled to ring in 2018 in a comfortable, showstopping style. That’s why we’ve put together our top three outfits that will keep you looking fabulous and feeling warm, all night long. Scroll on to see how a touch of cozy can make SUCH a difference when it comes to NYE outfits.
1. Denim Delight: If you’re not sure about rocking those mom jeans straight into the new year, then think again. Not only is light wash denim absolutely everything right now, but it instantly doubles as a dressy option when you pair it with a sparkly gold bodysuit, some crimson, embellished flats, and *the* wristlet to end all wristlets. Consider the party started!
2. Silver Faux: Let’s face it; the holidays are ALL about finding that killer dress, and this metallic beauty is one for the books. But why freeze your buns off when you can have the best of both worlds? Over-the-knee boots look fly AF and keep you warmer than other footwear options. Then add a super cozy pom-pom beanie into the mix with a gold clutch (obvi), and you’re ready to rage the night away!
3. Fur Sure: Rock the metallic cascading ruffle like the party kween you are without inviting the goosebumps too. Just add fuzzy and faux fur-tastic warmth to the mix and you’re good to go until next year! Strap on those gorg gold pumps and pack your floral clutch will all the night-out essentials.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
