Disclosure: Thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for partnering on today’s post. All products were selected, purchased, and loved by yours truly.
Viva Las Vegas! We recently ventured out to the City of Lights to celebrate a friend’s 40th birthday. It was my first time visiting Vegas since I’ve been of legal drinking age (I’ll let you do the math on that one 😉 ) and it’s safe to say I had no clue what to pack. Cue the panic online over-ordering. And that’s where Nordstrom came in.
It’s no secret my love for Nordstrom runs deep. If you’re new to shopping Nordstrom, you should know it’s a one stop shop for dressing head to toe for every occasion- including Vegas. They offer free shipping and returns (perfect for those of us who panic over-order), options to buy online & pick up in-store, and have some of the BEST customer service I’ve ever experienced. Cheers to that! Today I’m walking you through a handful of outfits worth packing – all from Nordstrom. Bring on all the sparkles and sequins, friends!
If you’re a fan of bright, bold colors, a trip to Vegas is your time to shine! This little red romper is fun, flirty, and oh-so flattering. But the real star of the show is my colorful clutch. It’s the perfect size for all your essentials and covered in sequins – what all my Vegas dreams are made of. Don’t be afraid to get your shine on, babe!
A Sparkly Sequin Romper
If there were ever a perfect time and place for a romper covered in sequins, Vegas is that place. When they say anything goes, they mean it. There are no rules, but I like to think sparkles and sequins are a requirement. I opted for the same clutch with this look! The great thing about a rainbow accessory? It matches every single outfit.
A Cocktail Dress
If you’re heading out for dinner, drinks, and a night out on the town, a cocktail dress is a must-have. This one is a tried and true favorite that I’ve had in my closet for YEARS! I own it in several colors and reach for it for every elevated occasion. I love that it doesn’t scream “Vegas” and can work for other vacations and events year-round, meaning you’ll get more than a few wears out of this one! Shop smarter, not harder, am I right?
A Leather Miniskirt
Ooh la la! A night out on the town calls for a LBM (little black miniskirt, that is). From concerts to the club, Vegas is the perfect excuse to slip into this sexy little number. There’s just something about leather that makes a girl feel like a million bucks! Bonus: it’s husband approved. 😉
Cute & Casual
Don’t get me wrong. Getting all dolled up for an evening out is fun, but don’t forget about shopping and sightseeing throughout the day! Word of advice: you are going to do a TON of walking (we averaged several miles a day!), so be sure to pack a comfortable pair of shoes. I love that these shorts can be dressed down for a day out and about, or dressed up at dinner time!
Comfortable & Confident
At the end of the day, anything goes in Vegas. Don’t be scared to opt for fun colors and materials. I like to think of it as an opportunity to express yourself and wear something you typically wouldn’t reach for! I find that as long as I’m comfortable and confident, I feel like I hit the jackpot. And (I cannot express this enough), don’t. forget. comfortable. footwear. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas… except for sore feet, those will follow you home. 😉 Have fun, friends!
