Outfit of the Day: Stayin' In or Slayin' on NYE

Boohoo Outfit of the day post
Where has the year gone, already? No matter what you're feelings are on 2016, the chances are you'll be either celebrating it's departure or it's successes this New Year's Eve. Whether you're stayin' in or slayin' (or both) - I thought I'd share my NYE outfit in collaboration with Boohoo.

I'm usually up for going out on New Years. I'm quite sentimental when it comes to reigning in a new year and, if it meant a night with my best friends, why not? Due to our scheduling and relocating, we haven't managed to meet up this time and Jack and I are contemplating the ultimate night-in and leaving it to the last minute to plan anything instead. I'm not sure whether it's just because we're getting 'old' but sometimes I really do look forward to enjoying a fine meal and cuddling up in front of a good movie in our cozy flat. Luckily, whether I decide to stay in or go out, Boohoo have got me covered with a snazzy Party Dress AND some comfy loungewear.

I opted for something that can be dressed up or down (whilst also containing my boobs). I opted for the Becca Velvet Shirt Dress which seemed to be fit the bill very nicely. Not only is it black to match the rest of my wardrobe, but at this time of year I can't pass up anything in velvet. I really love the cut out style of this dress and, being a baggier fit, it makes for a super comfortable yet flattering going-out dress which can also be worn with thicker tights and flats for a dressed up every day look. For my night in, however...

Who says I only wear black? I was immediately attracted to these jersey pyjamas in ombre rainbow print. You may not be able to tell from the photos but they're actually t-shirt material which means they're both breathable but also snug, a bit like a jumpsuit. I'm a bit of an odd, hour-glass shape so I can be fussy with pyjamas sometimes but these are baggy in all the right places - and fitted where I need them to be also. If you're planning on a festive night-in, I'd definitely recommend grabbing a pair of these babies, getting some good grub, enjoying some new Blu-rays and bringing in the New Year in style.

I know it's been a tough year for some but when I look back, this year was totally great for me on a personal level. Tonight, no matter what plans I decide, I'll be celebrating. When I look back at my goals from last year, I'm actually pretty proud of myself for achieving pretty much all of them. I got another job promotion, I got a beautiful flat with my boyfriend and we started putting away for some up and coming world travels. I've met some incredible people and lost no real friends - how can I complain? So what are your plans for this New Year's? Did you manage to tick off your goals for the year? Whether you're staying in or going out, I'd love to know and, as always, I love reading your comments so please do leave me lots of lovely ones down below.

Until 2017, Happy New Year everyone -

  1. Wow, you look so great and the coat looks so comfy :) I'm so glad that you have prospered because I'm sure you have worked hard for it. 2016 was kind of hard for me on a personal level and I am bracing for what changes 2017 will bring to the USA. For New Year's, I got a lot of Thai take out food and I watched a few documentaries and I've been reading a book on architectural styles. So my NYE was not bad. I hope you had a wonderful NYE, Sophie!

    1. Thank you Gil :) Thanks so much - the year seemed to have passed by really quickly. I know this has been a tough year for you - I really hope that 2017 brings much better things your way. Well done for staying strong though through it all. Thai takeout and films sounds great! We watched Zootropolis and some TV - wasn't anything fancy as Jack's not really in to NYs. Was still nice though :) Happy New Year Gil
