if you're not really having a good time, it's not worth it.


I don't get the chance to go out much. I mean, sure I go to dinner and movies and stuff like that...but I don't often have the opportunity to go to bars and clubs with my friends. (It doesn't help that so many of my friends live far away!) It seems that plans always fall through. Especially this summer.

Many, many times, I've found myself planning the perfect outfit....only to find I have no reason to wear it! So, I thought I would get a little creative and put together my ideal night out look.


I chose a neon orange rouched skirt from H&M that I have been dying to wear, along with a simple black one-shoulder top from Joe Fresh. The shoes were gold glittery heels from the iconic Betsey Johnson, along with a pendant necklace, sparkly earrings, and a ring with a floral design.

For makeup, I opted for neutral shades on the eyes (nothing is better than Urban Decay's Naked Palette...nothing!), an orangey-bronze blush from NARS in Liberte, NARS the Multiple in South Beach, and to top it all off a bold, bright lip. (The deep orange gloss pictured is from Real Colors in Turn The Other Chic.)

So there you have it - my perfect night outfit. Now, if only I had somewhere to go!

What do you think of this look? When is the last time you went out?

  8. Hi Shannon, I so much understand you, to me it's the same, actually I dream to go out more often and have loads of social events but I am so tired that in the end when I have to go to, I regret not staying home, LOL or the plans don't go thru as I expected ! I like your night out look, anyway...shame we don't live near to each other, otherwise we could arrange a night out, haha ! Kisses
