Best Friend's 20th Birthday Dinner

Heyy lovelies
I'm finally back and posting an actual post worth reading and hope you're as excited to read it, as I am writing about it.
Yesterday, it was one of my best friends 20th birthday dinner who I have known for 12 years, which is insane to think about. I don't get to see her as often as I would like to but when we do catch up it's just how it was where we last left off. I am forever grateful for her and I would feel like a piece is missing from me if I had never met her. Alright enough of the sappiness as some of you may be cringing but that's truly how I feel :)
 On this particular occasion I decided to wear a casual, cosy yet warm outfit since it's currently Autumn in Australia, which means it's starting to get a bit chilly at night. The top that I wore was from a shop called Valleygirl which was around $20 I believe. It has a black and white stripy pattern on the back which comes down from the sleeves, to give off a sliming effect. The front is quite sheer with a zip to add a little style and is longer in the back. 

I also paired it with a black knitted cardigan which I am completely obsessed with since it's so warm and cosy. I also opted for a larger size since it makes the comfort factor go way up in my opinion. This cardigan was also from Valleygirl on sale for $20 which is always a bonus. It also undoubtedly goes with any outfit and I personally consider it a staple for every wardrobe.

I also decided to wear some black ankle boots which I bought from Target for $50. This might be pricey for some but I have always bought expensive shoes since they don't hurt my feet as much. I have learnt the hard way buying cheap shoes and my feet aching by the end of the night which is never pleasant. I don't know if it's just me but I see a running theme of black throughout my outfit, but I do wear other colours I'll have you know. For my bottoms I just went for grey tights which I bought from a store called SES for $15, I would have taken a photo but they are unfortunately in the wash whoops!

For my makeup I decided to just go with my everyday look except for the eyeshadow, which I only wear on nights out or parties obviously. All these products except for a few I have already done a blog post on, so feel free to check those out if you're interested on what shades and brands I use often.

I also made sure to spray myself with some Girlfriend perfume my dad bought for my birthday a while ago and it smells amazing!

The dinner party was held in the city called Holy Basil in the Shark Hotel. At first I was certain it was an Italian restaurant going off the name, but was mistaken since it was a Thai restaurant. It was quite spacious and had a chill vibe which I loved and it also had a few pool tables, a bar and some comfy chairs complimenting the light brown interiors. Overall, I was content since I discovered another restaurant in the city worth a second visit or two.

( Some interior lights I clearly fancied)

Once we were all settled into our seats and chatted away, it was time to order. I decided to go with the  chicken pad see ew, I know strange name but delicious nonetheless haha. However when you're starving and everyone around you has got their meals and yours is still yet to arrive, I got a little impatient not going to lie! Nonetheless, when it eventually arrived I couldn't have been happier as it was exactly how I expected it to be.

Nearing the end of the night we played some pool which I stayed well away from since I'm not the best and we had to take some good old bathroom selfies to remember the night of course haha.

I hope you enjoyed this long post and has inspired you on some cosy outfit ideas on chill nights out.
