Some days I get dressed and I think, gee whiz this outfit really needs to go out somewhere. Do something. Be shown off a little. Usually I don’t have anywhere to go. Such is life in a small town. But hey, most days I wouldn’t change it for the world. This outfit though, it’s just a little bit special and a lot comfortable. The studs around the neckline just make it party worthy. Too bad I wasn’t going to a party. I wore this outfit with my blue loafers to grab some take out with Hubby. We had just arrived home and I spotted my blue heels in the car as I unloaded some last-minute groceries from the boot. Can we just grab a pic, I said. But not here, can we go to the blue wall?

And Hubby, well he said yes, because he’s lovely. So I pulled out a bit of lippie and off we went. The eye make-up is just left over from the day and was a little smudged from the gym. I tried to fix it up but made it worse, I think. Meh. It works. It’s pretty cool, if you ask me. But it needs something {other than appropriate underwear}. It needs… Hmmm.

This outfit, what it really needs is a girls night!

It makes me want to rally the ladies, eat canapés and party.

It reminds me of this one time, not last winter, the winter before, when my sister-in-law arrange just such a night. A new restaurant had opened in town, we were desperate to try out the new menu, so we went for a few drinks and a large order of the tasting menu. 4 hours later, we were closing the place. Finalising the bill for the evening a few things were realised. I’d started a tab for the table at some point and we’d ordered LOADS of wine. We’d also managed to eat 7 serves of fried Camembert between the 10 of us. Our simple, couple of cocktails and some nibbles ended with me running my eftpos card for over $300 AND I wasn’t the only one paying the bill. Whoops.

An important secondary story to this is that my sister had skinny dipped in the neighbouring motel pool for $80 collected in coins from our wallets and was now drying herself in front of the air con in my car.You know what, we could tell we had eaten well and ended up quite festive in the process because there were a few of us determined to head out. As in, to the club {yes, singular} to round out the night before heading home.  A risky prospect for those of us heading to work the following morning… But there we were on our way out on the town. Sober driver at the wheel, of course.

Girls nights are THE BEST.
