Inspiration - Blake Lively
As I get older I find that one of the harder areas of dressing to keep up with is going out for a night on the town type clothes. I think I struggle to stay in tune with 'current' both because the style of this kind of clothing is much more trend driven then office or day to day wear so it changes frequently and secondly because I no longer want to dress in the same half-naked clothes my 18 year old self thought were a fantastic idea.
Way back in my college days (1999 era) we wore bootcut black pants and a bust showcasing spaghetti strapped tank. Now I see girls (I live in a predominantly college-aged town) in daisy duke high waisted shorts and blousey button up shirts or skin tight body conscious dresses.
This outfit is my current go-to going out outfit. I feel like it's on-trend and body flattering without being too young or too naked. And best of all it can pull double duty - I swap the crazy heels for riding boots - and this outfit works for day as well.
