Inspirational Fridays: Night Out!

TGIF! While it's going back to being cold, rainy and gloomy here in New York, hope it's sunny and nice for the rest of you! My cousin, who lives in Austin, Texas, tells me she's enjoying mid-80s weather. I envy those of you with weather higher than 75 degrees!

Since it's Friday and people yearn all week for their weekend to start, here are some ideas on what to wear for the night (whether you're going out tonight or this weekend)

Clothing - I've recently came across this cute black lace dress by Sequin Hearts at Macy's -- it's perfect for this season! It's a combo dress that is quite innocent with the flowy sleeves, yet sexy with the black lace. Add a skinny, brown belt like the one show in the picture and you're good! I love this leather trim belt from Forever 21 that costs only $5.80!

Shoes - The next thing I'm gonna talk about is what people are always concerned about -- the shoes. You can wear flats, pumps or even boots. If you're going for pumps, the Townsend Gloria Pump from Lula at DSW for $39.95 is quite perfect with the dress with its lace embroidery. These Mossimo Wanda Wedges at Target ($22 online, $25 in stores) are alternatives for those who want to be comfortable yet look sexy!

Accessories - This is where the outfit all comes down to: the accessories! I'm talking about necklaces, bracelets, earrings and most importantly, what bag you're matching with the outfit. Personally, I'm not an accessories person but I only carry a purse or clutch because I have things to carry (don't we all?!). I think that anything silver or gold would look great with this outfit; these are the 2 perfect colors for almost any outfit. Long necklaces would look give the outfit a more defining look - but make sure to not wear dark-colored necklaces because you want to show your outfit off, too! This leaf pendant necklace from Lori's comes in the 2 best colors for the price of $20! Other options include this pretty coin-like necklace from Charlotte Russe and Kermes necklace from Aldo.

When it comes down to the bag, I personally like cross body bags. But this two-way Jayden clutch from Chico for $19.99 is seemingly perfect for this outfit! You can either hold it or wear it around.


  1. Hi! I found your blog on Soompi, so I'm hoping you recognize my username. :)

    I really like the first pair of shoes - I pretty much love anything with lace in it.

    You should update more, it's fun reading your blog. :)

  2. Thanks you so much! I try to update as much as I can, but I'm very appreciative on how much you like reading my blog :)
