Girls Night Out at The Hampton Social

Hallie and I were recently joking about how it’s the time of year where there’s a special occasion just about every single weekend for the next few months. While my calendar feels jam packed, it’s such an exciting time! Engagement parties, weddings, weekend getaways, graduations, bridal showers, birthdays, vacations, charity events, bachelorette parties, baby showers… You name the event, it’s on the calendar! Even in the mix of all of the fun festivities this spring and summer, I still love to plan a few more special nights with my girlfriends. You can never go wrong with a girls’ night out!

Getting ready for a GNO is usually half the fun! I love having my girlfriends over for a drink while we finish getting ready, and it’s always more fun to all show up to where we are headed together.

One of my favorite spots in Chicago is The Hampton Social! It’s our go-to spot for rosé or a fun cocktail and a bite to eat before a night out. Plus, all of the décor and details are basically begging for an Instagram. Highly recommend grabbing a seat by the bar for drinks or making a reservation for dinner this summer! (Check out more of my Chitown recommendations in the Travel Guide!)

When it comes to your GNO outfit, you can’t go wrong with a romper! They’re dressy, but still playful and fun. And since you may need some help unzipping in the bathroom (you actually don’t with this one I’m wearing!), you’ve got all of your girls with you! 😉 For something more colorful, I love this striped number. And I absolutely love this long-sleeved option for cooler nights, too!

Express is always one of my go-to spots for GNO attire! There’s a wide variety of fun, flirty dresses, rompers, jumpsuits, tops, and skirts that work for wherever the night takes you. I actually found a lot of great dresses that work for all of those special occasions this summer, too! How perfect is this dress for all of the brides-to-be?! And this little number has bachelorette weekend written all over it. This chiffon maxi is so fun for a flirty, more formal look. And you can never go wrong with a black fit & flare dress!
