CSS Question

Jquery Menu slide in on click

I have a little problem with my menu.

This is the situation:

$(document).ready(function (){
$('.btn').click(function (){

<button class="btn">Menu</button>
<div class="div1">some content</div>

This is what I have for now. So, I have that on button click, div fades in. But, I just can't do the next step. I want now that this 'div1' fades out on click anywhere else on the page, just not on that div and button.

I click on 'btn', 'div1' shows up on the screen, then I move a mouse outside that 'div1' area and click anywhere else on the page, then 'div1' fades out (hide).

Can someone helps me with that please?

Make the div focusable with tabindex="-1", then add an .on('blur', function() {}) event to the div (and remove the focus outline with css):

$('.btn').on('click', function() {

$('.div1').on('blur', function() {
.div1 {
  background-color: #eee;
  padding: 1em;
  display: none;
  outline: none;
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<button class="btn">Menu</button>
<div class="div1" tabindex="-1">some content</div>
