My boyfriend turned 25 this past weekend, so we decided to celebrate big by going to Las Vegas! And of course one of my first thoughts (sorry, babe) was yes, an epic style post. I tried to wear what was already in my closet since I wanted to have some extra cash in hand, incase I wanted to hit the slots as soon as I woke up (when in Vegas, right?). Although, I HAD to spoil myself with these new glasses from Warby Parker before my trip. To avoid overpacking and being committed to specific outfits, my main packing tip is to stick to one color story and one metal for accessories. This way you can mix and match from everything in your suitcase!

Laying out by the pool!
I'm wearing a pocket tee by GUESS by Marciano, bracelet by Sequin, and sunnies from Warby Parker.

Our first night, we had dinner at the buffet at Encore, our hotel. (You have to do a Vegas buffet at least once!) I wore a shift dress from Zara, bracelets from GUESS and Sequin, single wrist wrap from Kristin Hassan, and chronograph watch from GUESS.

The following day we did some sightseeing and explored many of the different hotels and casinos on the Strip. We stopped at the Venetian and did some shopping and people watching as they rode the gondolas through the shops. I wore a Jason Wu for Target dress, an H&M denim jacket, purse from China given to me as a gift, bracelets from GUESS and Nordstromsingle wrist wrap from Kristin Hassan, and chronograph watch and wedge sandals from GUESS.

For our show of the trip, we decided to see Cirque Du Soleil's KA. I am an avid fan of these acrobatic-filled shows, and couldn't pass the chance to see another. I've seen six now! For this evening, I wore a dress from H&M, my new favorite clutch from GUESS by Marciano, hammered earrings from Nordstrom, pyramid bracelet from J.Crewchronograph watch from GUESS, and wedges from Aldo.

Our last full day in Vegas was spent finishing where we left off from the day before. We were getting exhausted (the heat and non-stop moving gets to ya!), so I paired a casual shirt dress from Gap, red sandals from Steve Maddensingle wrist wraps from Kristin Hassan, bracelet from Nordstrom, red chain necklace from J.Crew and chronograph watch from GUESS.

My favorite night of the trip was my boyfriend's birthday dinner! We went to Tao and had one of the best meals of our lives. Seriously. For the big night I wore my ah-mazing Rory Beca Jones Gown from Rad + Refined, with a bracelet and chronograph watch from GUESS, GUESS by Marciano pendant necklace, wedges from Aldo, Kate Spade Sailor's Knot ring, and a Forever 21 clutch.

I also made a million appointments before this trip, so if any of you are in need of some specialists in Downtown Chicago, I've got those recommendations! My hairdresser is Luisa at Spa Di La Fronza (312.239.4456), who taught me how to properly curl my hair and I owe her my life for it, gel mani and pedi by Joanna at Spa Di La Fronza, and my eyebrows waxed by Carolyn at Spa Nordstrom (312.239.4456, 520 N. Michigan Ave.).

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time in Las Vegas and can't wait to go again! Who else has been to Vegas? What was your favorite thing to do, show to see, and most importantly, outfit you wore?!
