I couldn’t be more excited today because today is the day I leave cold Chicago and head to the West Coast! I will be in Vegas for two days and LA for three. I can’t wait.
I’ve actually never been to Vegas with friends so I’m curious to see what it’ll be like. I’m not a gambler but I know there will be plenty of other cool things to see and do – shows, restaurants, lounges, shopping, etc. I’ve been LA a few times and I LOVE it there. The weather is perfect, the city is beautiful, people are surprisingly nice, there are tons of cool places to eat, shop and play. I would move there but there’s really no way to get around driving everywhere if you live in LA (I hate driving – urbanite to the core.) LA is also very far from so many people I love. It’s all the way across the country from my parents, who are my life. I hate the idea of having to fly for hours every time I want to see them.
Regardless, this trip couldn’t come at a better time. I have a lot of clothes I haven’t been able to wear in cold, snowy Chicago that went right into my suitcase. I’m so excited to finally take them for a spin. A little taste of what I’ll be taking with me:
This Madewell Maxi dress. I just bought it and am so excited to wear it. It’s so flattering!
These Edun leather shorts. Love the perforated details on these. They’re perfect for spring/summer weather that falls in March because they feel breezy but look more transitional.
This one-piece suit. I love a good one-piece…and not just because my stomach is my least favorite feature on myself.
This Free People embellished leather dress. My mom gave it to me and it’s a bit short/tight/embellished for my taste. I guess Vegas is probably the best place for it!
Another Free People item. This top is gorgeous.
These cage sandals, which I got from my mom’s shoe closet (my favorite place to shop.) These will be my everyday shoes.
My brand-new Louboutin Biancas. I’m in love!
…And lots more! Stay tuned for updates from my trip. I hope to post something for every day that I’m there!
