     One type of outfit inspiration that I really enjoy sharing on my blog are budget friendly yet trendy and fun looking for nights out. As I've said in past posts, nightlife attire is a very certain look, but you don't have to spend a lot to look great! Nor should you- anything can happen during nights out (from drinks being spilled to God forbid more serious situations!), so the way to go is by finding the best bargain pieces that still fit your style. My personal style for going-out also tends to be a little bit more conservative... if I do decide to highlight a feature such as my legs or chest, I tend to be covered up in other areas! I personally think that showing less skin, or being tasteful about what you do show, is always the classiest way to go. :-) For example, since this romper is a little bit shorter, I chose to pair it with jeweled flat sandals instead of heels or wedges! 

     Summer nightlife attire is a bit more flexible and you can often put together a whole outfit around a cute dress or romper! I am just obsessed with the romper that I'm wearing in today's post. It is bright and fun, comfortable and lightweight to wear (so perfect for those hot summer nights), and it is under $15!! What what! 

     Unfortunately the print that I'm wearing here was an in-store exclusive only, but it is available online in some other fun options. How gorgeous is this print

     I haven't been going-out too much in post grad life, but I do have a dear friend (from blogging! Can you guess who?) coming to visit me in August, so I'm looking forward to showing her some of my favorite Charlotte nightlife spots then. 

    I hope that everyone is having a great start to your weekend! Thanks as always for reading!

  1. That is a really cute romper, I think you are so right about covering up a little big just adds class to the look!

  2. This is such a cute outfit and for such a steal! I'm with you about always covering up one area if I'm showing off another-it keeps a little mystery which I think is cool :)

  5. I definitely agree that spending a lot of money on a going out outfit is a waste...I feel SO frustrated when someone spills a drink or food on something nice, which always seems to happen at bars or clubs. You look completely chic and cute. Legs for days girl!

  6. I love this cute little romper! The colors and pattern are so pretty!
