Evening Apropos: “Going Out” This Weekend?

Even if you’re not, here’s what I wore when I went out

I KNOW WHAT I SAID.

That I wasn’t going to go out ever again because of my social menopause. Fun is tiring. Why does no one have fun sitting down anymore? What would Fran Lebowitz say about having fun?

But the truth is, even though my pace is slowing down and my desire to “party” is gone, I still go out. As you may or may not know, when you go out, you must wear clothes — no shoes, no shirt, no service, zzz — and so, here you go: a two-night, non-office “going out” edition of Office Apropos, minus the office, because it is so hard to get dressed on Friday and Saturday evening.

Friday

Also out of my routine is this much color all at once, but when I seriously can't get dressed (which is magnified by a billion after work on a Friday, especiallyyy if I had to style a shoot or do anything useful) I tend to get more adventurous with my outfits. I think it's because I'm like, "Fuck it, let's get weird and go for it."

I have a really hard time going out on Fridays because I’m dead from the week and sometimes a tiny bit hungover from Thursday if I had drinks with a friend or a date or something. (I’m at that stage where I get hangovers after two glasses of alcohol; it’s very fun.) So, going out on a Friday was a little bit out of my routine as of late, sure, BUT, I had a friend’s birthday party, and who am I to deny someone the annual commemoration of her womb escape?

Saturday

Saturday night: I have a weird story to tell you about my going-out-top-with-jeans outfit. I had to do two things on Thursday night with two different demographics. The top was for one group (disco fiends, apparently) and it was meant to go with a different pair of pants. I was going to change. The jeans were part of my after-work-drinks day-to-night transitional outfit. I spilled red wine alllll over these jeans at my AWD (after-work-drinks), which made me tired, so I skipped the disco event and I went home... ...By the time I got home the jeans were not only dry, I swear on my life: no red stain. It was very weird. So to celebrate I wore them Saturday with this sequin top, and what I really mean here is: these two things were mostly clean and on top of the chair where I put the clothes that I don't feel like hanging back up.   Wearing: Anine Bing top and jeans, Maje jacket and Tory Burch shoes

  • Natty

    love your Friday night lewk and the idea of “going out” outfit ideas.

    this weekend I am hibernating, but NEXT WEEKEND I have an epic outfit in store for a cool friend’s wedding. outfit involves a floor length slip dress with a massive Angelina Jolie slit, which I plan to pair with lucite-heeled, ultra shiny sock booties. There may or may not be a leather jacket and a clear handbag involved; TBD. i am pumped.

    • Amelia Diamond

      PLEASE add a photo here!

    • libs

      THIS OUTFIT SOUNDS INCREDIBLE

    • Pics!!! We wait patiently 🙂

  • Kelsey Moody

    weeee! slide 8, lookatchu!

    • Amelia Diamond

      does it remind you of that scene in men in black where they are teaching will smith who is and isn’t a bad alien and there’s that one working out from scaffolding?

      • Kelsey Moody

        Yes! I tend to view your life chronicles through the lens of obscure scenes from will smiths greatest works. Can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for Bad Boys!

  • I would love more going out ideas! I’m always at a loss of what to wear to change things up. 👍🏼💯

  • Natalalaa

    This post just came at the right time, as this saturday I am going to break my social menopause for the first time for weeks! But I guees I am going to wear a ankle length green, left half silk, right half wool dress with black sprakling socks, blue vans and a blue utility-style belt or my beloved bordeaux coloured, original from the 90s, corduroy minidress with a vintage missoni knit underneath and some black glitter overknee socks…or something completely different? Since I haven’t been in any bars or anything alike for what feels like ages there are sooo many possible outfits in my head that want to be worn outside!

    • libs

      These clothing descriptions are making me drool

  • libs

    I went out on Wednesday night in a striped dress leopard coat & dangly earrings with messy pixie and messy makeup that looked, I realise, desperately like an Edie Sedgwick costume. Halloween is here early! If I go out tomorrow night I want to exactly replicate the first outfit too. I love the skirt especially!!! But just in general the thought of wearing COLOUR out is so exciting. (Or I’ll wear fishnets and culottes w a crop top which I know is an outdated Look on MR but in my town its still a confusing garment choice)

    • Amelia Diamond

      ooo that edie look still sounds great! pics pics i love when you guys post outfit pics!

  • Super cute outfits! Also, you continue to give me major hair envy – it’s gorg!

    It’s my bday this weekend, which I will be celebrating by going to a farm upstate where I will pick pumpkins, eat apple cider donuts, and drink lots of hard cider and beer as well as spend time with my fam. I will follow that up with my favorite Mexican joint +too many margs. And I feel ya on the hangover after 2 drinks, Amelia, so I will certainly be hurting on Sunday.

    • It’s my birthday too! But I haven’t planned anything :/ I’m torn between staying in but wearing my fanciest dress anyway and ordering some fancy takeout, followed by wine and guitar hero, or going to some bar, or going to an amusement park, or going on a hike. Maybe I can do it all.

      • Amelia Diamond

        HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU TOO!!

      • rachel

        Hike in your fanciest dress BAM you’re welcome 😉

    • Amelia Diamond

      HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

  • Anna Ferrante

    LOVE! These outfits are always the most paralyzing to choose…

  • meme

    I’m going out a lot lately, before the hibbernation definetely kicks in, and I need inspiration for WARM outfits. Please, Amelia! I get irritated when I’m cold and I start having fantasies about my pjs.

    • Amelia Diamond

      warm going out outfits are so hard because of dying from being too hot indoors BUT OK THINKING STRATEGICALLY

      • A good warm going out look: short sleeved ribbed polo (mine’s grey), long slipdress/summer halter (mine’s black), leather jacket, boots, coat if necessary. Scale toward or away from ‘dressy’ using accessories. Yes? You can take the jacket off indoors and not roast, assuming you picked a light knit for the polo.

        • meme

          I like it!

  • samhallie

    Omg the back jacket shot – love!

    • Amelia Diamond

      hiii

  • Sarahtonin

    I adore Apropos features 😍Can y’all do an Apropos for rainy day fashion?As for these looks: Friday, I’m in love!

  • We love outfit posts! Does going to the cinema counts as going out?
    I’ll probably wear this outfit with a warm coat on top. It is cold at the moment in Germany! Have a great Friday you all:)
    Cheers,
    T.

    • Amelia Diamond

      🙁

  • As a near socially-inept hobbit, I am definitely here for more ‘going out’ #content! Tell me what to wear, help me get over party anxiety, do a quiz on finding your nightlife identity – teach me oh obi wan(s)!

    Weekend plans? Volunteering at my church for this amazing conference. I’m on the worship team so my wardrobe’s decided for me – Friday night was red dresses, Sunday morning is black dresses with pan-African printed headwraps and colorful shoes 🙂

    • Amelia Diamond

      Your weekend plans sound so lovely

  • Sindiso Tshuma

    That skirt & yellow cardigan outfit Amelia 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

  • Mallory

    I love your Saturday night look!

  • Rebecca Lake

    I tirelessly wear the EXACT SAME TWO OUTFITS EVERY DAMN TIME I GO OUT. this is of course excluding last weekend when I wore a two sizes too big turtle neck on a night out with my shoulder exposing, very single, very hot friends.

  • Luving the sequin top and jeans and that hair!!! I dont end up going out a lot anymore..but, I tried something different at my best friend’s wedding party (does that count?). I was going for a indo-western vibe and ended up with a gold metallic pleated skirt, a black kurta (tunic) with mirror work embroidery from Gujarat as a top – tucked in, glitter peep toes, chandelier earrings and a gold chained bracelet..
    On another note, I signed up for the newsletter, but never got one..did I do something wrong? Do you not like me? Is the world coming to an end? Pls tell
