OOTD | NEW YEAR'S EVE


Boohoo dress* (also available in black) / Zara heels (old but similar) / ASOS earrings

I'm not really the clubbing type of gal and the past NYE's I've had the pleasure of spending in London, I've celebrated by going to a park to watch the fireworks and they've been nothing short of perfect. That said, I still love a good excuse to get dolled up and if I do decide to go out to dinner or a party, you'll most likely find me ditching anything sequinned or bodycon for a vintage-style skater dress because that's just my jam. I'd never shopped on Boohoo.com before but was pleasantly surprised to find this gorgeous lace dress that seemed right up my alley. I reckon the fit and quality of the dress is quite amazing for the £30 price tag and I adore the super detailed lace pattern, reminds me of something For Love & Lemons would do. I paired it with my rose gold Zara heels that I've had for years and never fail to whip out for a special occasion, the heel height is perfect for a klutz like me and I can walk around in them all night without any pain. I've also been practicing more braid styles. I've mastered dutch braids if they're on the side of my head but I'm still struggling to do one on the back of my head because I can't see what I'm doing with my fingers. Lo and behold, the stunning Rebecca of A Clothes Horse (one of my favourite blogs to read) did a tutorial on this pull-through braid that almost exactly resembles a Dutch braid but requires no actual braiding at all (whaaa?) It's seriously a match made in heaven for a hairstyle noob like me and I'm still working on making it neater for next time. Don't think it looks too bad for my first go though!

Have you got your NYE outfit sorted? Regardless of whether you're going out or not, I hope you have a fantastic time ringing in the new year!
