What to Wear Where - Girls' Night Out

Welcome back to What to Wear Where - my boo Amy is hosting this week, so please link up over there if you're so inclined!


***

FRAUDULENT: I'm clearly taking these photos not in an authentic GNO type situation, but in my wild and crazy . . . backyard. During the wee CEO's study hour (his daily "Curious George" dose). Sans nighttime hair & makeup, not to mention a cranberry vodka.

I'm also brazenly mixing metals here, as well as - gasp - wearing white jeans after Labor Day! I am indeed a rebel without a clue - at least the shoes are ok, right?

Ooh, shoes - we'll get to those in a sec. But first:


(Haven't the slightest idea why I'm beaming triumphantly into the middle distance . . . this is what happens when I'm left to my own devices with a tripod. Sigh) 

NOT FRAUDULENT: I do love a good GNO, and I did recently wear this outfit out to the creme de la GNO creme, a bachelorette night out during my recent San Diego adventure.

Once upon a twentysomething time, I had an entire "going out" wardrobe . . . naturally time, boring new spending priorities, and a certain Master P have changed that. My challenge now is finding a few pieces that work for the occasional GNO but can double for every day; I wear this shirt & these jeans in my Normal Mom Life, for example, and just swap in my Mom-o-Flage sandals and tote bag for these fancypants heels & clutch.

Speaking of - yes, I do have a wildly impractical shoe and clutch or three on hand. They don't come out often anymore, but oh, is it ever fun for me when they do:



outfit details: shirt (veronica m, from this san diego store) / jeans (old GAP, fall version here) / necklaces (fornash, here and here) / bamboo bracelet (old kenneth jay lane, similar here) / pearl bracelet (old j. crew, similar here) / clutch (old steve madden, I like this update) / watch (michael kors) / shoes (rhymes with "Shmalentino", absolutely not linking to them because the Anonymous Husband sometimes reads this, newly mature & responsible me likes these slightly-more-reasonable-but-still-a-splurge knockoffs)

Um, you don't need makeup! Love the outfit :)

Longhorn Fashions said...

I love the whole look, especially the Fornash necklaces! Fornash is definitely new favorite accessory brand. And I'm pro white jeans post labor day :-)

Amy @ Forever 29 said...

Hey boo :) Yes, going out outfits are hard to find in my closet! I could definitely use a few blouse-y tops like this lovely one you are sporting. What size shoe are you again? I would gladly be your shoe guardian should you need to add that section to your will...

Nat said...

Love this outfit it's a great GNO and every day look- theShmalentino shoes really do it for me ! I don't have kids yet but the older I get I find it harder and harder to find "going out" clothes, they just aren't practical anymore- my 21 yr self would be disappointed in me

Heather said...

Kate said...

Steel Magnolia said...

Those shoes are on my List. Love them on you. You deserve to have a few special things in the closet that just make you happy.

Jessica said...

Shoes. I knew exactly what they were without needing your clue because I've been drooling over the same pair!

Perfectly Imperfect said...
