Escape from Chiberia – The Preview

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 11.05.55 PM

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!

Edun Black Perforated Leather Shorts

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.

14963532_201402041235The only thing I bought from the Peter Pilloto and Target collab. The colors on this are so fun. I’ll wear it as a coverup at the pool or with some cage sandals to go out during the day.


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!
