I started writing a blog post about my year and the things I had planned to work on in 2017, but then I had a thought. Who would care? People follow me because of my interest in fashion, and for outfit inspiration, so I abandoned that post (although not a pointless exercise, I highly recommend jotting it all down, it means you really focus on it) and decided to put together a few different outfit ideas for New Year’s Eve instead. Probably a bit late considering most of you will have planned your outfits weeks ago, but it has a dual purpose. I have shopped the sales and each outfit features a sale item.
Look 1 – Boyfriend Jeans, an oversized knit and sparkly shoes
I am actually wearing my husband’s cashmere jumper here. It’s a little too oversized, but I realised that all the jumpers I own are a bit too fitted and I needed something really slouchy.
But the shoes! They are the business. And now in the Topshop Sale for a bargain £18.
Look 2 – A Black suit and strappy heels
This tuxedo jacket is from &Otherstories (buy here) and it has been so useful. I love to wear it with a hoody or a jumper underneath, it just adds a bit of edge to an outfit. The trousers are old from Zara and not my favourite but you get the idea. And the shoes, which are currently in the Very Exclusive Sale, are Alexander Wang and a great price for such a classic shoe. Buy here
Look 3 – A sparkly top and skinnies
The sparkly top is in the Topshop sale. Buy here
I have paired it with step hem skinnies and my New Look strappy heels. (Which I wear a lot and cost me less than £20. They are so comfy and a really great height. Buy here)
And finally, the look I will probably go for later, as we are heading to the pub late afternoon with friends, then heading home for a quietish evening in front of the telly with a very nice bottle of Burgundy (of course!)
The jacket is another sale purchase (Buy here from Topshop) and I think will be a useful addition to my wardrobe. It makes a nice change from a long coat. I am wearing it with skinnies, my Chloe boots and my Bella Freud jumper, which happen to be my two favourite purchases of the year. It looks great worn up with the funnel neck done up and is really soft. I’d be quick though, as it is currently ‘trending’ so selling out quickly!
Wishing you all a really fun evening whatever you are up to, and here’s to a healthy and happy 2017 for all.
