what to wear to girls’ night out

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 opens in a new windowbook club with Style. this month we’re reading opens in a new windowThe 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! opens in a new windowDaisy 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.

girls night out

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 opens in a new windowacrylic on hand to save on breakage. a bar cart (old, opens in a new windowsimilar here) comes in handy for a mini soiree. this year i added a opens in a new windowwicker beverage cooler that has an insulated basin to keep drinks cool on a hot summer day. but i love opens in a new windowgalvanized buckets too.

  1. Well, for sure, this post put a smile on my face. I loved Daisy Jones and the Six–one of my favorites of 2021 so far. Your book club sounds so fun and your backyard is so pretty. I know you will enjoy it.

    I loved that top and tried it on (medium). I so disappointed in how it fit…bulky and boxy. What did you do to them hem to make it look more fitted at the bottom? Tucks?

    Posted 5.12.21
    • yes, tucks are the answer to boxy shirts, sweaters or tees. mine is tucked in the back which allows the front to fold nicely down.

  5. Your outfit is cute and casual. Love your backyard! All the renovation and flowers. Beautiful! I bought flowers a 9 days ago and planted the pansies in hanging baskets and other flowers are waiting to either go in pots or the ground. I bring out of the garage every day and my husband takes them back into the garage every night. We have had really chilly evenings. Last night was 30. It is to warm up starting tonight, so anxious to get everything planted. Rah! Enjoy your book club. I am attending a Women’s Bible study group every other Thursday.

    OMG I *loved* Daisy Jones and the Six! Reese Witherspoon is producing an adaptation with Amazon TV, I cannot wait.

    If you didn’t already read them, you might also like ‘The Unravelling of Cassidy Jones’ (more of a 90’s Spice Girls/girl band vibe than Daisy’s 70’s sex, drugs, rock-n-roll feel), and ‘The Final Revival of Opal and Nev’, which is also transcript style and more 80’s punk inspired.
