It’s that time of year again, y’all. You know, the one where we finance our babysitter’s college education overcommit to every holiday event we can find. And then proceed to lose our ever-loving minds.

And all of our ever-loving money too.

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR, DANG IT.

So since we are all stressed, tired, and poor, I’m going to help y’all out and tell you the ONE thing you need to up your party #ootn game. And I don’t know if you’ve heard, but a little holiday called New Year’s Eve is coming up. NBD or anything.

Let me back up and tell y’all a long and unnecessary story. (#itswhatido) When I was a super trendy 12 year old (*laughs so hard she pulls a muscle), I decided to wear my first bodysuit to school. We didn’t have a uniform policy, so I just wore said bodysuit with some jeans. And then proceeded to feel SO UNCOMFORTABLE, because um hi, 12-year old Sherri, how ya planning to pee in that thing? Plus, Seventh Grade Sherri hadn’t yet heard of thongs, or any LESS THAN COMFORTABLE underwear situation. A-HEM. I spent most of the morning begging my friend to switch outfits with me. And then I spent the rest of the morning in the principle’s office, because, when she said no, there may or may not have been hair pulling involved.

Seventh grade Sherri was a real treat. She also definitely couldn’t pull off a bodysuit, although I give her major points for trying.

Adult Sherri is a little more fashion-confident, but more importantly she’s figured out the “bodysuit pee situation.” #adultingishard

I guess you could say, adult Sherri’s come a long way, and y’all? SO HAVE BODYSUITS. Layering a bodysuit under your favorite jumpsuit, jacket, or cardigan, is one of my favorite new fashion moves. Prepare to see a lot of it. *spends rest of day trying to style a bodysuit with her sweatpants.

Guys, when I partnered with JCPenney for InStyle’s Holiday Tagged Sweepstakes, (there’s still time to enter!) they sent me this FABULOUS velvet jumpsuit. And let me just say, it is killer all by itself. And also, velvet jumpsuits for president.

But, then, I thought to myself, “Self, how can we style this in a way so unique, it may actually be a little bit insane?” Enter this lace bodysuit, which is SO GOOD, that if you don’t click over and buy it immediately, then what are you really doing with your life?

(OTHER than not making rash fashion choices?)

Friends, I can’t stress this enough. Get this bodysuit. Wear it under everything. Or make it your shirt, which means YOU WILL NEED A BRA. Ain’t nobody wanna get arrested for indecent exposure. It’s universally flattering, which in Sherri-speak means “buy it in every color.”

I’m linking a few of my other current favorite bodysuit options for ya below. And I promise not to pull your hair if you won’t switch outfits with me.

Maybe.

Until next time,
