My parents have made it a tradition that when I come home from the fall semester we go to see the Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker. This year we tied it into our New Years Eve plans.
We stayed at the Park Plaza (I’m a lucky girl!) and because of the weather we figured we would hang out in the lobby for the balloon drop at midnight.
We went to their last showing of the year and it was magical! There is something special about the final performance and I would definitely recommend going!
Next year I’ll be able to get a glass of champagne!
Earrings: mine are from Charming Charlie! I got them for $1.20 because my local store went out of business. My heart is sad but my wallet is doing the happy dance. Here is a really similar set!
Dress: from the Dressember collection at Elegantees. The Dressember collection is not on their website anymore but here is a gorgeous black dress! I don’t know how this dress fits but the one I got is a little short and I have to wear leggings underneath it instead of tights. I’m 5’8″ and I tried to size up to a small but it’s still short.
Vest: from Old Navy! Here is the link!

After dinner we went back to the hotel to figure out a dinner plan. We ended up going to P.F. Chang’s and from there we headed to Copley to see the ice sculptures and fireworks. As I mentioned earlier we were planning on staying at the hotel but there was definitely a reason we were meant to be at Copley.
The fireworks! Counting down to the New Year was so exciting! You could feel the energy and the fireworks were amazing! I even made it on NECN Boston! I was behind one of the news anchors while she was filming and I’ll post the video if I ever find it!
Look at my little BitMoji partying it up!
