It’s Friday or should I say Fri-yay! Regardless you’ve somehow managed to rally your girl gang together for a night out with the promise of cocktail shenanigans. To say you’ve been looking forward to this outing all week is an understatement, as you’ve impatiently been counting down the days, hours and minutes; much to the dismay of your co-workers. Because it has just been one of those weeks. Stressful, uneventful and a darn right nuance at best. So you’re overly eager to let your hair down, step out in those brand, spanking new Plexi heels and paint the town as red as your poppy hued lipstick.

Sadly, I can not remember the last time I revelled with my squad. So does that make me less qualified to give some advice on what to wear to a girls night out? No. Don’t be stupid. The thing is when you get to my age (did I really just type that?) you find that your squad shrinks in size. Because life takes you all towards different directions. You find relationships become uber serious. Some spend their days traveling, while most find themselves relocating, or announcing engagements and then (maybe) babies, though not in the order. And as years elapse you find yourself preferring nights curled up on a couch, accompanied by take-out and vino over Jägerbomb’s and strobe lights. Life becomes exceedingly scheduled, not just with others but for yourself also.

So when an opportunity for boisterousness presents itself you seize it and compromise, because it’s a true rarity these days. Planning such nights are thrilling, yet exhausting at the same time in attempting to accommodate every individuals needs and calendars. At least this has been my experience thus far. For me what to wear to a girls night out means either all things feminine and dainty or naughty and nice. One should be dressed to the nines, dolled up and standing on impractical heels. There are times when sweats and sneakers will be called for but not this night. What to wear to a girls night out means you want your Sunday best. Dressed to impress no one but yourself. And for me one can never go wrong in all black and with hints of gold. Seemingly a tulle tutu is optional but very much warranted for channeling ones inner Carrie Bradshaw.
