I was contemplating posting New Years Eve content since I figured I’d just be home in sweat pants. However, since there haven’t been many other reasons to put a nice outfit on this year.. I’ve decided to use the holiday as an excuse to dress up even if I’m not going anywhere. I’ve always love dressing up any chance I get so I can’t believe I even thought twice about it this year! Although New Years Eve probably will be pretty anti-climatic, I think dressing up can help the night feel festive and a bit more “normal”.
I thought I was over the velvet trend till this beauty showed up at my doorstep! This stunning purple velvet mini dress is from French Connection and I think it’s the perfect amount of festive and fancy without going over the top. Being petite, it can be hard to find dresses that don’t swallow me, but this one fits like a glove! If I were actually leaving the apartment this New Years Eve, I’d pair it with some fun heels like any of the below!
Last New Year’s Eve we were bopping around New York City which I’d kill to be doing again. But this New Year’s Eve my boyfriend and I plan to have a cozy night with the pup enjoying some picking food, champagne, and probably facetiming with family as they celebrate the New Year earlier than us! His family will be celebrating 9 hours ahead in the Netherlands and the rest of our friends and family will be celebrating 3 hours ahead of us on the East Coast.
Wishing everyone an extra happy and healthy new year this year!
Let’s ring in 2021 in style 🙂
