What to Wear: Vegas

Everybody loves a little weekend getaway to Vegas, right? I know I do. The one thing I don’t like about traveling is figure out what to wear. In Vegas you have to transition your outfits from day to night. Meaning you will probably be wearing multiple outfits in one day.
So I always try to plan out my outfits for a trip. A few months back my boyfriend and I took a weekend trip to Vegas to see Aerosmith play at the MGM Grand Garden Arena . We had an awesome time. Who doesn’t have an awesome in Vegas?  Below you will find how I planned and transitioned my outfits throughout the weekend. Check out some of the other great Las Vegas hotels and find inspiration on how you’d plan to transition your own outfits. Hope you enjoy!

Chicago O’Hara Airport First Class Lounge waiting to go to Vegas. I love to travel on planes in a maxi because it is comfortable. It is also easy to add and take away clothing due to temperature. 
What do you do after you check into the MGM Grand Hotel? Head over to Tap Bar and Sports Bar for a beer. 
A romper to check out the strip. The fit is comfortable and light to combat the desert heat.
Heading to Rehab for a day pool party. This outfit is light and works great as a swimsuit cover up. 
Aerosmith concert outfit +MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino Garden Arena. A dress is great and easy for a concert.
A skirt and leopard heels w/ a pop of color is a great option for dinner at Prime Steakhouse 

Straightened hair and about to check out the nightlife @LAX. A little black dress is always a good idea in Vegas.

Fun and Flirty

Morning Peeps! Have you ever had that outfit that you feel is perfect? That outfit that screams fun and flirty? Well the outfit below makes me feel like that. I love this outfit.

2015 Gallopalooza

It is that time of year again here in the Bluegrass state….Derby time!!! This means horse racing, bourbon and everything in between. In Louisville, the celebration starts 2 weeks before the actual Derby race which happens to be the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs (this year it is May 2, 2015). Check out all of the Kentucky Derby festivities here. One event that I went to last week was the 2015 Gallopalooza Collection Preview. If you drive through Louisville you will see brightly painted full sized fiberglass statues of horses in front of a local businesses or home. Since this is only the third time that kentuckians have been able to experience Gallopalooza, and we are not sure when it will happen again, I thought I should check it out.  Gallopalooza started as a way to beautify the streets, encourage local exploration, increase tourism, showcase local artists and generate civic pride. (www.gallopalooza.com). The project raises money to support Brightside, which is a volunteer driven and funded effort to beautify the city, and many other local charities. The past two time that this happen (2004 and 2009), the focus was mainly on horses. The artists added bourbon barrels and mint julep cups this year, as well as the horses. All the artist are very talented. Each has to apply and submit a design and see if sponsors would like to commission them for their work. There are also rewards and cash prizes that artist could win for their work. Check out my experience at Gallopalooza as well as my outfit details. Hope you enjoy!

This horse is my favorite because it is painted roses on one side and lilies (see other side in next pictures). These are both symbols of Derby and Oaks.

My Valentine’s Day Outfit

I hope everyone has their Valentine’s day/night plans already in the works. If not you need to get on it!! A couple days ago the weather was great and I decided to do an impromptu photo shoot with my Valentine’s date night outfit. I went simple this year. I paired a black tank and leggings, with a hot pink blazer. Then I added a touch of leopard with a skinny belt and heels. You can never go wrong with a little leopard. Check out the photo shoot and outfit details below.
