The New Year Outfit For Whatever You're Doing


Call me a party pooper (maybe that should be my new blog name?!), but New Year always seems like a bit of an anticlimax to me. There's so much pressure on what to do, everywhere is super busy and once the countdown is over and nothing incredible has happened I lose all enthusiasm. New Year's Eve is actually my mum's birthday and I realised that although I usually spend the day with her I haven't actually spent the evening and seen the New Year in with her for at least ten years. So this year I'm seeing the New Year in with my parents at home watching the fireworks on the TV. I can see that becoming a habit.

I took these snaps old school style on self timer in my office against a plain wall and although I love nothing more than a blurry background shot, I also quite liked stripping my outfit pictures back to their basics and just focusing on the outfit instead of the location and which way the sun was facing. However the light wasn't really my friend so the quality isn't great, but you can still see the outfit and that's the whole point. 

Anyway, I digress from the point of this post. The point is the outfit and the fact that you could wear this if you're going out clubbing (seriously just using the phrase 'going out clubbing' makes me feel like a completely out of touch granny) or staying in with family like me.




Because the outfit is velvet it makes it a touch more glam, but essentially it's a casual all black ensemble and I love that. I also love that because both the top and shorts are velvet it gives the illusion of a playsuit (if you squint a bit anyway). My boots are also suedette even though they're not pictured so I win in the textile stakes.

What are your plans for New Year's Eve?

  2. I love the velvet and leather together! I hope you have a lovely New Year's Eve and happy birthday to your mum. I think I'm going to a house party which is better than out clubbing, but my top choice would be staying home haha!

  4. I love velvet and I think you are doing well - if only I could do it... to spend the holidays with my parents! So I think it's so nice that you are spending the new year's eve with your parents, since it's your mum's birthday! I think you two will have very nice memories! I'd like to wish you a great new year, a beautiful end of the year's party (it will be!) and may you get all you want in the new year! Happy 2017 and thank you for all your support!

  7. Absolutely gorgeous outfit, you look super stunning Amy! & I'm completely the same. New Year is nothing special to me - I find the whole thing a bit depressing to be honest!

  12. You look absolutely gorgeous!! Love the velvet and all black is perfect as you can accessorise it with so many different options! I feel the same about New Years lovely it always feels a little bit of an anti climax but I am actually going out for this year so hopefully will be a little more exciting! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and have an amazing New Year :) xxx

  14. Firstly, 100% yes to spending new years in, I actually don't think I've ever been out for NYE (that's probably shockingly old of me)! Secondly, all about black velvet outfits, it just makes everything look that bit sassier and dressier. Gorgeous!

    1. It's great that it makes everything look sassier with zero effort isn't it? Happy new year lovely lady! xx

  15. Yes, yes, yes to this outfit, you look so great and fab in it! I'm not a huge fan of NYE either, mostly because of that idiotic pressure to have a blast when it's insanely cold outside...I just can't do that anymore. This year I'll be staying in as well, I'll have drinks with my friends during the day and afternoon and I plan on having a nice, relaxing and quiet night (probably) alone 'cause my boyfriend is away filming for two days. Plus I have a ton of packing to do because on 2nd of January we're heading to Zagreb for work and we'll be there for almost two months so I have loads of preparations to do :) But I'm super excited for everything!! xx
