Girls’ nights — staying in or going out — are one of my favorite things in the world. With the right mix, a comfortable atmosphere, some great drinks and good conversation, there are far few better things. Just don’t make the group too big. I recently read the most hysterical article about large group dinner birthday parties, which nearly everyone hates, right? So many people, a crazy bill, lots of logistics. I’m a much bigger fan of smaller groups, or pay-your-own-tab wine bars where every can mingle, and it’s super low maintenance for everyone.
I had the most freaking fun last week during a GNO to Melting Pot, which I hadn’t been to in years. I mean, how can you have a bad time with cheese and chocolate fondues, half-price glasses of wine and fab girlfriends?! Fool proof. The timing was perfect, as I went the night I posted the most recent Vent Sesh (loving your comments so much; we’re clearly all in this together)… the night boosted my mood in such a major way.
For an easy summer night, I went for this adorable new Topshop tank that I purchased on a whim after a few of you mentioned how much you love it. Thank you! At under $30 and available in a dozen colors, it’s the perfect, flattering tank with all the right details. To transition to fall, simply top it with a blazer or cozy cardigan. I can see myself wearing this camisole with a pencil skirt or slacks, too.
By the way, when it comes to GNO’s I typically come from work so I’ve become pretty adept at packing my things in a roomy tote in the early a.m., including my outfit (blouse usually stays on the hanger), jewelry options and make-up (as long as it fits in my little travel case, I usually bring extra options so I don’t freak over a bangle I just neeeeeeeeeded). #firstworldproblems
