You can never go wrong with a little black dress. I love having a few little black dresses on hand for those occasions when I just do not know what to wear! They also come in handy when I want my outfit to be all about one or more of my accessories!

I wore this casual little black dress out to dinner with my family. It seemed warm outside when I put the dress on and took a few photos, but as soon as the sun went down, I kept my coat on! In the future, I will plan to wear this little black dress on warmer days, during the day, or on occasions when I will be inside. At dinner we sat outside on the patio because my daughter didn’t like the noise level inside the restaurant. Brrr!

Since I consider myself an accessories girl, I chose to wear this little black dress in order to accentuate both my Dualitas ring, and my favorite blue handbag! I love blue and green together, so highlighting both pieces at the same time just worked for my personal taste.

This Dualitas ring is really comfortable, and it looks amazing with casual denim outfits, through to cocktail attire. I love versatile jewelry, it is what I reach for the most in my jewelry box! If you are not familiar with Dualitas, the collection is designed right here in the San Francisco Bay Area; in Palo Alto! To read my Dualitas feature and learn more, please click here.

I would also like to give a shout out to these boots! I have been wearing my Tory Burch boots several times per week. The heel is high enough to look fabulous, yet just below that 4″ point which can be uncomfortable. As a result, these boots are VERY comfortable! I love wearing them with jeans, skirts, and dresses! They are currently on sale, so if you are looking for a pair of fabulous black boots with some stretch (or give) in the shaft (the part which covers your calf), then these boots are for you! They fit perfectly, keep my calves warm,  and I can walk for miles. Love that!

What makes you reach for a little black dress?

Girl’s night out outfit

I recently went out for happy hour with my friend Laura of Have Need Want. This was the perfect opportunity to wear a girl’s night out outfit, since I don’t have a chance to go out with my friends very often.

We went to Steamer’s in Los Gatos for some yummy appetizers, and fabulous conversation. It is always fun to meet up with Laura and talk. It was mid week, so we both chose to wear cute girl’s night out outfits which were on the casual glam side.

I was excited to have the chance to wear this ruana, which I purchased back in August for the fall season. It was nice to have cool weather, and to be able to wrap myself up in it! Ruana’s are a step above a blanket scarf; so they are are a casual glam way of keeping cozy. Love that!

If you have seen my last few blog posts, you may have noticed that I have recently worn a pair of skinny jeans, and side-zip flare jeans, from Gap’s Resolution denim collection. The pair of black flare jeans I am wearing in the photos above are also from that collection. I have fallen in love with Gap’s resolution denim collection, and find myself wearing these three pairs of jeans often.

Gap’s Resolution denim line has a bit of stretch in them; giving them a comfortable feel, and ideal fit! They make the perfect jeans for girl’s night out out outfit combinations. I love that they are all priced well below $90! If you have not had a chance to check out this denim collection, take a look online here.

What are some of your favorite pieces for putting together a girl’s night out outfit?
