Packing Hacks for Your Vegas Vaca + Wednesday Link-Up

A New York Love Affair :: Trina Turk for Vegas

Packing is always a chore for me, one I usually leave for the last minute. Packing for Vegas is the worst. You know you’re going to take a million photos instagrams and snapchats. Plus, no one just “lives” there — everyone is there to have fun, go out, see and be seen.

If the streets of New York are like a fashion runway, the streets of Vegas are basically just extended entrances to the clubs. They’re every bit the scene outside, only without the flashing lights and pulsating techno beats.

And in Manhattan, you can get away with a “Tuesday” look. It’s chic but nothing special. In Vegas, there is no room for that. You have to be on point every minute. That means all your best pieces have to wind up in your suitcase, and probably means you have to go buy a couple things ahead of your trip. You’re on vacation and you want to feel like it.

There are big and small ways to do this. The big ways are obvious: drop some serious dollars on designer fashion. Even if it’s just one piece, pull the trigger, bite the bullet — pick a metaphor, and go for it. I picked a floral Trina Turk romper. The print is perfect for spring and Vegas, plus the exquisite cut is what you’d expect from designer fashion.

But there are also some little ways to give yourself a little extra sparkle on your Vegas vacay. I picked up a couple little pieces of pretty for my trip, upping my jewelry game from my normal day-to-day with some gold midi rings.

So next time you’re headed to Vegas, make every inch of that suitcase count. And if you’re like me, bring your biggest suitcase.

    Packing is always so hard. I always overpack. I never know what I may feel like wearing.

    Packing is so hard for me, too!! I try to pack for casual time by the pool and more chic outfits for out and about… then I’m faced with the fact that I’ve already taken up 1/2 of my husband’s suitcase as well!! Ooops! Haha <3

    OMG this is gorgeous on you! I love that it’s structured in material and cut, but playful with that floral print. You are perfection!

    I think next time I go to Vegas (probably to get married) I will get kicked out. I am going to be all flippy-floppies, destroyed shorts and tank! (LOL)
