Simply Classic

Zara kitten heels, check stores
Forever 21 necklace, similar here and here by t+j designs
Banana Republic clutch, dreamy option here

 Beauty: Lips - Mac cosmetics in Hot Gossip
Nails - Essie Topless & Barefoot (best nude ever)

Purchasing a chambray shirt was the best possible wardrobe addition I could have made. It's so gratifying to have basics that you can reach for when you have a "I don't know what to wear" moment. I've been having those a lot lately! It's warming up here, but it still gets very chilly at night and in the early morning hours so the transitional period is difficult for me. Another smart buy? Definitely this beautifully made lace skirt. I can pair it with just about anything. I decided to wear both of my classics together for ladylike polish.

Spring Break

I don't know about you girls, but I am in serious need of a vacation! As I get older, I realize how much I took for granted those two weeks during college where I did absolutely nothing but go to the beach, spend time with friends, and blog as often as I wanted. I miss those days.

Hubby and I are grateful to be going away for a few days during the first week of May. Vegas is the destination of choice for our first real trip since Maui. It holds a special place in my heart now, as silly as that may sound. Aside from lounging by the pool, walking the strip, and retail therapy (Topshop is a must this time!), we are staying in the same hotel where he proposed to me over three years ago. That was the last time we were in Las Vegas, and it was such a whirlwind experience that I cannot wait to do it all over again. Just a four hour drive from where we live, we are looking forward to a roadtrip across the desert.

In thinking about my previous Vegas hurrah, I started looking through some old blog posts from way back when. Lord. Some are actually cringe-worthy. Check this one out! I still have the same pieces, just a better camera and photographer. Anyway, back to Vegas though.

Once again, we are staying at Vdara

I love the modern feel of it, and the fact that it doesn't have a casino. It's very different for Vegas.

One thing I won't be bringing this time around is my Chanel. Last time, Nate joked that he felt like my bag was the third wheel. It was my first time showing her off.

Here are some of the things I am packing:

Loft tee & skirt, Target hat, Stella&Dot necklace

 Bikini from Target

Kate Spade bag, although bringing a clutch and a crossbody as well.

 So maybe this looks more New England than Las Vegas but oh well...I'll throw in my gold sequin Zara skirt for good measure. 

Now can it be May 1st already?
