Happy New Year from Hong Kong!

Hong Kong Times Square

Happy New Years Eve! I’m finishing up my trip to Japan, Hong Kong, and Korea, which could not have been a better way to end 2016. I’ve been reenergized by spending time with family and exploring some of my favorite countries, and I’m ready to head into 2017! Here is my NYE’s outfit shot in Hong Kong:

Chloé gold ankle strap flats (similar)

I’m a big believer in glitter, gold, and red for all the holiday festivities! If not now, then when?! (See the other holiday outfit I’ve been wearing over and over again.) So, of course, for my New Year’s Eve attire, I combined all my favorite elements with this fun sparkly top, gold flats, and starry earrings…and topped it all off with the Smashbox red liquid lipstick that stays on all night (through endless glasses of champagne). Now I’m ready to ring in 2017!

For Christmas this year, I treated myself to this gorgeous Saint Laurent velvet beaded bag. The embellishments are next level, and I love that I’ve rarely seen a bag like this! Saint Laurent has just been doing the mostest with jazzing up their bags lately, and I’m totally into it. While I usually invest in classic bags, this piece was too special to pass — it’s like wearing a piece of art! I’ve linked some more embellished Saint Laurent bags below.

Thank you for reading and following along! 2016 has been quite a year with many triumphs and heartbreaks. I wish you a happy New Year filled with love, growth, and health. Onwards and upwards — always.

Love, Carolyn

    Love how glam you are, even when you're traveling!! I find myself packing infinite amounts of sweatpants when on the road, so it's refreshing to see how well put together you always are. #goals

    Happy new year!!
