packing for Vegas!

I'm a visual person.  I've already made a very detailed list of what I'll be wearing each day during my trip Vegas this weekend, even down to what accessories I'll be wearing to the pool!  But a list wasn't enough for me, I had to take it one step further.  So here is my visual packing list!  (Well, part of it anyways!  Still have to fine tune a few things.)


Dress / Necklace / Sandals / Bracelet 

Dress / Necklace / Bracelet / Shoes 

Dress / Necklace / Shoes / Bracelet 

Except that I'm not actually wearing pink heels on the colored dress night.  I had this great idea to paint an old pair of shoes I had bright pink, but it didn't work out the way I envisioned.  So I'll just be wearing black shoes!

Tony went to Vegas two weekends ago, and temps reached over 117 degrees!!  That is too hot to handle.  I just checked the forecast and am relieved that they've dropped a bit.  Looks like it will only be around 99 degrees this weekend.  I can handle that!  I am SO excited, I love Vegas!

P.S. Today's my birthday!! ;)

Xo,
Rachael

  1. First happy birthday!
    Second welcome to my world. 117 is the norm. It's ridiculous and I hate it. That's why I live in the pool and sit in my central ac all day haha. I can't wait til we move back home to OC where the weather is fabulous always.

    Third I love this idea of packing. I'm so this way too. I just lay everything out and then go from there matching accessories and shoes and all that. I do that on a daily basis haha I love fashion and dressing up. And it's even worse for James. I go crazy planning his outfits!


    Have a fun trip!

    1. Thanks!! :)

      OMG i would die if 117 was the norm! It's considered sweltering here if it gets above 80. You're from the OC? That was my favorite show! Haha.

      Yep I lay things out too. I would do it on a daily basis if I wasn't so lazy!! I wake up at 5am and just throw something on, luckily I'm able to dress casual at work. Happy Wednesday!!

  4. Happy HAPPY birthday, beautiful!!! I hope you and your sweet little family are able to enjoy the day.

    I am cracking up over your visual list. I usually just pack waaaaaay too much shit in my suitcase, you got it all planned out. And I envy you, I never dress up on a plane, and I always regret it cause there's always girls like you lookin all hip and stylish. That dress is kick ass.

    Have a blast!

    1. I realized over the years that maxi dresses are so much more comfy than jeans, so it was an easy transition. :) and i hardly ever dress up so its a good excuse. I still need a hat for the pool. I'm not a hat person so I'm having trouble finding one! Guess my head is weird. Lol.

    1. Thanks!! The last dress I actually wore in Vegas last year but I only got one picture in it so I figured it's worth another wear. :) It sure is short & tight though!!

    1. I chose the wrong color of pink, and also was lazy so didn't use a primer. They need a few more coats so I may work on it later, but not for vegas. :)
