traveling in style

I’m taking a trip in a few days to a little place in Nevada; I’m very much looking forward to spending some time with a few cool ladies and enjoying some warmer weather. While it may not be warm enough to camp out poolside, being able to leave my snow boots at home in Pennsylvania will be a refreshing change.

There are a few outings planned and I want to look and feel stylish; considering I spent the majority of the month of February working from home in my pajamas, this will actually be quite a departure for me. I started planning my outfits in my head a few weeks ago, and I had a little fashion show for myself last week to see what would work and what I still needed to buy. Yes, this is very serious business.

In the past week I have picked up a few new things to supplement my current wardrobe so I’m stylin’ on the strip:

printed Kelsey ruffle top from J.Crew (mine is the same print, but in purple), on sale for $43.55

tunnel belt shirtdress from The Limited, on sale for $47.70
(it looks extremely shiny in these photos, but it is really not shiny at all)

Blooms print dress from Ann Taylor Loft, on sale for $41.99

Hush Puppies Rosemore heels in Silver Metallic leather from DSW, on clearance for $27.96,
paid $17.96 because I had a $10 rewards coupon

(I didn’t even know that Hush Puppies made heels, but these are cute, comfortable, and versatile enough that hopefully I will get a lot of wear out of them in the future)

long black trench coat from Target, $39.99

I’ll also be breaking out my favorite LBD (little black dress) from my girl Betsey. I have worn this to my mom’s 2008 wedding, my bridal shower (with a twist), and a wedding since I bought it. It truly is the perfect LBD!

What are your wardrobe staples when traveling?


  1. Converse laceless All Stars. Best way to get through security.

  2. OMG those shoes are TOO cute! Actually, all of it is cute! You have great style.

    I don't really have travelling staples. I bring jeans, a dress and tshirts usually, but I'm just so random that I really lack style. Oops…

  3. 1) Love the Hush Puppy shoes! I am super excited to see they make heels!
    2) Love the LBD! You look smashing in it!

    Have fun in Vegas with the Bees!

  4. Wow, that dress is FABULOUS, you hottie! I have two shirt dresses from The Limited, and I love them. Gosh, I'm still stuck in winter mode. I've been buying clearance sweaters and stuff because I can't even wrap my mind around spring clothes yet! I did buy two cute pairs of heels on clearance at Nine West since I know it'll soon be time to put the boots away.

  5. Wow, I can't wait to see you sport all of those fab items! I think I need a pair of those shoes myself… I'm always looking for cute comfy shoes to spot on wedding days when I am on my feet for 10 hrs…

  6. I was trying to pick one thing that I really like, but I can't narrow it down because I love them all. Although I may have to go to Target and look for that jacket! Are they still in the store?

    You are going to look fabulous in Vegas. I wish I could go!

  7. I'm so sad I won't be there to see these outfits in person!

  8. Thanks, all!

    @Michelle, I just got the trench coat on Saturday, so it should still be in the store! Though, I did snag the last black one in our local store.

  9. Girl, you have such great style! I wish you could come and dress me! LOL
