Showing off your stylish look is just as important when staying in as it is when going out. The days are getting shorter and as daylight savings approaches hanging out with my bff’s, while consuming all things pumpkin, is definitely at the top of the “to do” list. The tree’s will soon be turning shades of orange and I know I won’t be the only one at Starbucks ordering a pumpkin spice latte. All this fall tradition inspired me to look up some good ole’ home remedies to try out on a “girl’s night in.” Here is your one stop guide to having a successful night in with your besties.
WHAT TO WEAR
I’m loving printed detailed leggings this season! Not only are leggings comfortable, but they are a super cute piece when showing off your creative side. Whether you choose a solid pair or leggings with a colorful pattern your friends will definitely be asking where to get a pair.
Deciding on what to wear on top is important and keeping it simple is key when wearing detailed bottoms. A solid knit sweater or pullover sweatshirt makes for the perfect combination with your lovely leggings.
