Packing for Vegas!

It’s finally here!! I’m one week away from my girls trip to celebrate my 40th birthday in Vegas. I’m one of those people that really love Vegas, I’m not a hard core gambler (although I like to gamble) or a big foodie (although we are going to some great restaurants) I just love the lights, sounds, shopping, walking, people watching ALL OF IT.

This trip will be from Friday to Monday so I need travel outfits, day outfits and night outfits. The kicker is my friend who goes to Vegas every year challenged me to fit it all in carry-on luggage! WHAT?! So I thought ok I can do this!! I will be using my Calpak 22″ rolling carry-on and Calpak under the seat rolling bag to fit it all in.

Looking at the weather for late January Vegas is showing highs in the mid 60s and lows in the 40s so definitely needing a light jacket each day. I will also be bringing my packable puffer jacket just in case it feels REALLY cold but most of the time we will be in casinos.

I have been to Vegas enough times that comfortable walking shoes are a MUST HAVE! I don’t mess around anymore with “cute” shoes during the day I want stuff I can walk miles in.

Travel Day #1: Graphic Tee (size up, L) // Denim Jacket (tts, M) // Amazon Joggers (size down if in-between in L but a little big) // stretch sneakers size up 1/2

Day #2: White tank (size up, L) // Blue Jeans (size down if in-between) // Similar Wedge Sneakers (tts) // Surplus Jacket (tts, M)

Now the nighttime events on this trip are going to be EPIC!! The first night we are headed to see Thunder From Down Under and I was told by my girlfriends to wear something a little sassy so I grabbed my tried and true Vince Camuto jumpsuit because it’s also really comfy!

The second night we are headed to Hakkasan night club in the MGM grand where I will be ringing in my birthday at midnight. I will most likely wear my gold sequin dress for that night but wanted to have an “extra” outfit just in case the weather turns crazy cold. When I tried on this black moto jacket with my dress I’m honestly not loving it so I have this BlankNYC and this black with gold detailing so I’ll figure that out next week. Many of the sequin dresses right now are low stock so if you can’t grab mine check out this LOFT one.

The final night we will be headed to CATCH at Aria for my birthday night dinner so I wanted some nice (but comfy) leggings. The animal print tank is pretty much sold out so I have linked a few other options in the scroll bar above.

Night #1: Vince Camuto jumpsuit (tts, 10) // glitter pumps (tts) // similar clutch // Kendra Scott Statement Earrings // Stacked Bracelets // Sequin Wrap Bracelet // Link Bracelet

Alternative Night Look: Suede Jacket (size up if in-between, L) // Sequin tank (tts, M) // Glitter jeans (tts 12P) // Animal Print pumps (the ones I’m wearing I am not bringing mine were with a friend) // Gold Hoops

Night #2: Sequin Dress (size down if in-between in L could use M too) // Moto Jacket wearing (jacket on the way) // pink glitter heels // similar pink earrings

Night #3: Suede Jacket // Animal Print tank (tts, M) // Seamed Leggings (size down if in-between, 10 these are hemmed for length) // Animal Print pumps

Now I know my girls trip is pretty specific but this can be a great list for Nashville or Austin just any place that you get a chance to get away with friends, laugh, dance and enjoy celebrating LIFE! Y’all this is 40 it’s going to be a GREAT YEAR!

    Great outfits! I ordered the Loft sequin dress and I love it. Thanks for the recommendation. I think I’ll have my seamstress take it up at the shouder just to make it a bit better under the arms and to make shorter. It’s going on a cruise!
