Queen of the Night by Kathrine Eldridge, Wardrobe Stylist

I couldn’t think of how to title this post but I felt like the Queen of the Night when I put this look together for a night out with my hubby for our 5th wedding anniversary. This outfit has that typical night out feel with the animal printed top and skinny jeans but the longline vest added a dramatic touch. Queen of the Night it is!

Change Up Your Night Out Uniform

It’s easy to add a cute/sexy top to jeans for heading out on the weekend. That’s so predictable. I say go to another level. Add an accessory or layering piece that is unexpected and brings a wow factor to the outfit. This longline vest and chain statement necklace is what I chose to change up this night out uniform. This vest is a favorite of mine and I can’t wait to wear long sleeved blouses underneath it in the fall and winter.

If you don’t want to add a layer to your going out top and jeans, consider adding accessories like a statement necklace or earrings.  Have them pop against whatever you are wearing so go for bold colors or metals and think about going big in size as opposed to small, delicate jewelry.  If you really want to make a statement, wear pieces with big stones that sparkle and shine. Any kind of bling is a win in my book.

Taking a Small Break

Happy Labor Day Weekend! I will be heading out for small trip to a cabin on a lake with my family so I will be away from my computer on Monday. I have made the executive decision to give myself that day off. A little breather before fall begins. I will be back on Wednesday so see you until then and enjoy your holiday!
