Dear twIN STYLE: What do I wear for girls' night out?

My mom called me the other day to ask me what to wear for a night out with her girlfriends. In a bit of a role reversal, my mom is much more of a night owl and social butterfly than either Sam or I are. Like a worried mom bugging her teenager, I've even called my mom late on a Saturday night wondering where she is and demanding that she come home! Here is what I came up with:

Night Owl

T shirt
$30 -

Miss Selfridge black jacket
£115 -

Nine West leopard booties
$109 -

Banana Republic metal necklace
$70 -

Kendra scott earrings
$60 -

Crystal bangle bracelet
$29 -

Wrap bracelet
$15 -

Illamasqua Lipstick
$27 -

Ann Taylor
$158 -

My mom tends to like clothes that are fun and flashy, so I knew I wanted to find an outfit with some sparkle. I went with a nighttime-inspired, all-black color palette, broken up with pops of violet from the jewelry and nail polish. The paillette mini is a showstopper, so I tried to keep the rest of the look fairly simple.

I think that this outfit could work for a variety of ages. While it's sparkly and a little sexy, it's also completely covered up. I would definitely rock this look if I owned it. Hope you like it Mom!
