I love weekends (I mean, who doesn’t!)! But I love having plans where I get to pick whatever outfit I want to wear and pair it with any accessory I have. When I get ready, I think about 3 things – Activity, Location, and Look. I’m going to break down how I pulled this together for a night out with friends.
- Activity. For this night out, we had dinner plans with friends so here’s what I think about – there won’t be a lot of walking, so heels is an accessory I could wear. I also think, we’re going to be sitting inside in AC, so a light sweater might be necessary.
- Location. The second thing I think about is the location. In this case, we were going to Purple Cafe, which isn’t casual but not too dressy. But let’s be real, anytime I’m going to a restaurant that isn’t casual is by default, dressy 🙂
- Look. After you think through the activity and aspects of the location, you’ll be able to simply put your look together. For this evening, I decided to pair a skirt with a simple black camisole and dressed it up with accessories – heels, fun handbag, and jewelry. Since it was hot that day, I simply brought a sweater to wear in the restaurant if I got cold. But otherwise, this look fit perfect for that evening.
It can be hard to determine the right outfit for an evening out – so breaking down your thoughts into these 3 areas can help you pull your look together. Try it and let me know how it works for you.
