Every so often a chance arises to hang up your ‘Mom’ coat for the day and have a night out on the town with the girls. After all, you deserve the chance to let your hair down, feel great and catch up with other moms occasionally! If you feel you’re out of the loop and don’t know where to start, read below for some inspiration for having the perfect mom’s night out.
What to wear
You’ll want to look your best when you’re out on the town. Take this night out as the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to something new, put yourself first and feel great. Some points to remember:
- Bear comfort and practicality in mind with your footwear. Skyscraper heels might seem a great idea, but those blisters won’t!
- You can’t go wrong with a little black dress, or perhaps a stylish top and your favorite jeans are your calling.
- Beauty starts from within, and you should feel confident in everything you wear, right down to your underwear, so look around for the best plus size bras and make sure your night of feeling fabulous starts the right way.
Stylish and comfy clothing will have you brimming with confidence and ready for a night to remember.
Where to go
It’s important for your group to figure out where you are heading long before the night arrives. If you all are in the mood for some fancy cocktails, perhaps contact a local bar and make a table reservation. Look up student nights out so you can avoid the rowdy spots, and do your research into the best venues with music that you will all enjoy. Planning ahead can avoid any upset or drama involving booked up locations and unenjoyable music!
Top Tip: Get creative with your night out and maybe try something you’ve never done before. This will make the night out one to remember, and you may discover a hidden talent!
Sometimes, the hardest part of hitting the town is feeling guilty for leaving your children. The critical thing is not to worry or stress. Regardless of whether you have organized a babysitter, partner, family member or friend to watch the children, it’s important to let them take the reins so you can enjoy your night! It will most likely be rare that you have a night to yourself with your girlfriends, so enjoy every minute, and don’t stress. You’ll be reunited with your little ones before too long.
Don’t overdo it
A mom’s night should be an occasion for you to let your hair down and have a night for yourself, but remember not to overdo it. There’s no need to drink in excess to a point where you are not enjoying yourself. If anything, the hangover should be enough to put you off overdoing it. Battling a headache from hell along with screaming children is not the best combination. Enjoy your night, but don’t drink to excess. Instead, catch up with your friends, relax, and have fun. You’ll like yourself much more in the morning for taking it easy and finding the perfect balance.
Don’t forget to take photos!
You likely spend a lot of your days taking adorable photos of your children’s key moments in life. A mom’s night out is an excellent opportunity to capture some fun personal memories to look back on with your friends, where you look and feel great. Add them to your fridge so you can reminisce everytime you see them.
