A Winter Night Out

Happy Friday everyone! Friday is basically my favorite day of the week. It’s the last day of the work week and that means it’s time to celebrate with a fabulous night out!

Since it has been averaging at 30 degree weather week after week, I’ve been having my night out celebrations on the couch. When it was warmer, my fiance and I would consistently go visit the city or explore new places in our hometown, but for the past few months, I can’t stand to go anywhere because I can’t even think of anything to wear that would look good and still keep me warm.

But that has changed. Now it’s time for a night out even in the winter. Since I can’t stand to be cooped up for so many months, I made it a point to find outfits that would be fit for Friday night out and be appropriate for the weather.

The first item that is a must for a Friday night cold weather look is the right pair of boots. I love my OTK boots because they are so chic and keep the majority of my leg warm. Over the knee boots also do a phenomenal job of making me look taller than I actually am. Triple perk!

Next is just making sure that I have the right bottoms. I am a very big jeans girl, but I have been wearing maxi skirts and sometimes even shorter skirts depending on how cold it actually is.

The final piece is having the right top. I’ve been so in love with the bell-sleeve trend this season. My collection of bell-sleeved tops grows by the day. So for this outfit, I took that trend and matched it with a luxurious looking lace material to get my night out look.

Now, some of you may be thinking: “We can see your skin, how are you not freezing?” But hear me out. I change up this look consistently.

Depending on how cold it really is (because we’ve had random days where it is over 50 degrees in the winter) dictates what top I will wear under the lace top.

Under this top, I could go cami, sleeveless, or full sleeved and this top will still look amazing. One other time that I wore this top, I put on a long-sleeved black turtleneck that actually blended with the top so well, the lace looked like a simple overlay.
