What I Wore Wednesday: The Girl's Night Out Edition

Let me give you a little back story here. My best friend and I have known each other since we were 5. We met across the crowded and bustling kindergarten room and it was love at first sight. Magical, no? Now we haven't always been the closest in the almost 20 years that we've known each other now. We go months without talking sometimes, but we can always pick up the phone and pick right back up like there was no lapse. That's my favorite thing about our friendship. It doesn't matter how long we haven't talked, I know I can just call her up and we'll get drinks.

That's what happened last weekend. We actually haven't seen each other in several months, but I desperately needed a gals night out! So we poured the whiskey and teased our hair and went dancing! What. A. Night. I'm still recovering. Anyway, this outfit is what I decided to wear dancing through the streets of Chicago. Thankfully is was about 80 degrees that entire weekend so I didn't have to worry about bringing a jacket or anything. And since we were going to be in crowded and hot bars, I though skimpier was better.  Oh, I also recently dyed my hair! It was dyed in the last outfit post, but you couldn't really tell. The red ombre really pops in this post. I'll share my tutorial on how I did it tomorrow.

I wanted to keep the outfit fun, flirty, and simple since I knew it was going to be a long night and we were going to be prancing around the city. I didn't want to have to deal with a lot of bulk or heels that were just going to make me fall over at the end of the night, in case we were waiting for a bus.

Floral cotton bodycon mini skirt (similar)
Silver gladiator sandals (similar)

You can really see what I attempted to accomplish with my hair in this picture. The ends are a brighter red than the rest of it. I was really hoping it would turn out more ombre red, but I learned from doing. Next time I'll know how to get a more seamless ombre hair effect. Also, the necklace is the same from this tutorial and from this outfit post

So who's your best gal pal?
