As of today, I am going to say I officially suck at packing (even though I did a packing post here). I think my problem is packing for a trip for Vegas in January is different from packing for a trip in the summer. Summer dresses, swimsuits and going out clothes, simple! I know what I’m bringing to wear out, but I’m struggling with what I’ll want to wear during the day shopping, maybe a little gambling and of course, daytime drinking! Anyway, the above photo shows my carry-on essentials. My Intel tablet and magazines for entertainment, a scarf to stay warm on the flight, hand lotion and lip/cheek stain and a pair of aviators!
I always want to look cute, but be comfy on flights. We will also be meeting up with friends in Vegas almost immediately after checking into our hotel room, so I want to only have to add an accessory or touch up my makeup a little bit when we get there. So I decided on an outfit like this, cute booties, leggings, a long t-shirt and this cute cardigan from OASAP. I might wear my black jeans and another comfy sweater I have, but either way, I will be wearing something comfy!
My whole weekend is going to be centered around wearing gold when I go out (and during the day on Sunday when it is my golden birthday). YAY THEMES! I am such a theme-y person. So for my first night out I am going to wear a little black dress (seen here) with some new sparkly gold heels from JustFab.
I’ve had these gold wedge PUMA sneakers for a long time, but I can’t wait to bust them out on my birthday (SO COMFY). We will have a fun day exploring and then I’ll get all dressed up for my birthday that night. I’m sure I will be posting tons of Instagram photos, so no need to bore you with “the dress” twice here!
Monday we have another whole day and night, so I will probably wear a skirt + blouse combination for during the day (it is supposed to be 70 the whole time and to a Minnesotan this time of year, that means shorts/skirts) and a more colorful dress for night.
On the way back home, gotta be comfy AND WARM. Don’t want to think about this part yet… I’m just too excited to get there!
