Oh man, no matter how good my pictures look on my camera, sadly, I can guarantee that if I took them indoors, they are going to look terrible once they're online. So, sorry about that, the weather seriously sucks at the moment. It's a shame because I do adore this outfit and I wanted to do it justice! It's what I wore on New Year's Eve just in case the title of this post didn't give that away. I've had this Missguided skirt for months and months and months but had never worn it while I've had the Primark jumper weeks and worn it nearly to death already. Partly because I only packed two tops for some stupid reason when I went away for a week, partly because it's gorgeous and I'm obsessed with it's pink fluffy loveliness. On a whim, I whipped this Missguided skirt out of my drawers and the pink colour on it made me think of my Primark jumper. I laid the two out on my bed and a new favourite outfit was born!
New Year's Eve was of course spent with my boyfriend, just as it has been the past two NYE's we have been together. This year we were completely*~ wild and oh my god, went to the cinema, had a meal, and went to a house party. Yeah, shocking I know. Except it's not, cinema and meal are soooo standard for us. The house party was admittedly a little different but considering it's the house party I went to every year before I met him and it's the party of a family friend, I wouldn't say we were out of control or anything like that! Cinema was fabulous. We went to see the second Hobbit film which I absolutely adored. They have taken a lot of liberty with the original narrative but since a certain module I did at university that the name of which is escaping me right now, I'm quite good at seeing the film and the book as entirely different entities and I tell you, it sure does make these films a lot more enjoyable because I don't sit and compare the two constantly and get angry when they don't match. We went to Frankie and Benny's for a our meal which was a weird deja vu experience because it's what we did last year funnily enough.
Bringing in the New Year itself was my favourite though. After completely ignoring the person I wanted to see at the party in the first place (Emily why are you such a freak?!) and being rather taken aback when a woman I have never met in my life asked me how I was feeling about my move down South then began to take photographs of my shoes, we all moved into the living room to watch the countdown on the Jools Holland show. As the clock struck midnight, everyone failed to let off party poppers as it appeared to be a faulty batch (we pulled them apart instead and I ended up covered in streamers - see Instagram), and we all broke into a rendition of Auld Lang Syne - COMPLETELY on kazoos that seemingly appeared out of nowhere. It was strange and beautiful and I cuddled my boyfriend for the first time this year I knew that this year was really going to be a perfect as I promised myself it would be.
What were your plans for New Year? What did you wear?
