it’s been a moment since my book club convened, but we’re back. yes! today’s post is all about what to wear to a girls’ night out. many of you know i host an online Facebook group book club with Style. this month we’re reading The Bohemians by New York Times bestseller Jasmine Darznik. Jasmine will join us for an in-person video chat on May 25th that you don’t want to miss! but i also meet with a lovely and lively local book club every month. love my book club gal pals! Covid disrupted the club this past year along with so many things that add joy to our lives. but hey, we’re back in action after a long hiatus. this month yours truly hosted the club in my backyard, so come join in on the fun!
what was our book selection this month? it’s a fun read i suggest you listen to on an audiobook instead of reading. the cast was a-ma-zing and quite entertaining! Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. my book club loved it as it’s an easy read that transported us back to our youth. the book is loosely based on popular 70s band Fleetwood Mac. anyone remember Rumors? that album was on repeat for months and months in my home. if i remember correctly my parents were driven to distraction as i hogged the best stereo in the house located in our living room. Dreams is still one of my all-time favorite songs to this day.
time to dust off the patio furniture and get the wine and soft drinks out. nothing fancy, but i do like to have a little something available for my guests. as far as glasses go, i like to have acrylic on hand to save on breakage. a bar cart (old, similar here) comes in handy for a mini soiree. this year i added a wicker beverage cooler that has an insulated basin to keep drinks cool on a hot summer day. but i love galvanized buckets too.
what to wear to girls’ night out? an embroidered top from Talbots, of course! white straight-leg jeans from Frame (i sized up one size to a 30) fit like a dream and feel light and airy. metallic slingbacks are back in action as they’re as cute as they are comfy. for a pop of color, coral bracelets will do the trick.
the wicker beverage cooler comes with a handy dandy cap opener.
it’s Wednesday, gang, time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
