Who What Wear "Girls Night Out" Chapter from What to Wear, Where
Any time I have a big occasion where sartorial attention must be paid, I do a little consulting with my two favorite authors- Hilary Kerr and Katherine Power. Today I head down South to celebrate one of my oldest and dearest friend's last days as a single woman. Her NYE nuptials only weeks away, it is our duty as her bff's to give her the most fun and unexpected weekend before she becomes a missus. And we must look our most festive while doing so!
For the car ride down with two of my besties, I'll be cozy and comfy in boyfriend jeans and pullover knit. Uggs- yes, I'm still wearing them- will keep my tootsies warm and pampered. Tonight will supposedly be a low-key evening, but I brought the black silk pants as a way to ditch the denim come nightfall. However, should tonight turn into a big night out, alternative tops are packed...Kerr and Power suggest that an evening out with the girls call for risk taking and staying away from anything too corporate. Should we venture out, the black silk pants will be swapped for black skinny jeans, spiky stilettos and a leather jacket.

The alternatives: Alexander Wang graffiti print tank top, Anthropologie necklace, Velvet silk top
Tomorrow, I'm guessing we'll be doing a good bit of lounging with maybe a few runs out to the outlets. For that, I've packed my cozy cords, a thin long-sleeve tee and a soft cardi.

Saturday night, we'll be riding a party bus ALL over town! There will be eating, toasting, roasting, dancing and laughing...and lots of it! For the multitude of places we'll pop in and out of, I nabbed a metallic cropped jacket, a silky white tank and waxed black jeans to look like leather.
Zara tweed jacket, Madison Marcus white tank, Banana Republic necklace, J Brand waxed jeans
By Sunday, it will be hard to put on anything more than pajamas. However, I'll manage to swap my Lululemon pants for these James Jeans plus a crisp button down and long cardigan.

And, of course, we can't forget to give a nod to the bags! Rebecca Minkoff's blue shoulder bag and Lauren Merkin's silver clutch will hold all of my essentials for day and night.
