FASHION/ Old Town Vegas Feels 

Freemont Street aka Old Vegas is somewhere I felt really comfortable – it’s a street filled with music, laughter, entertainment, bright lights and plenty of what I’ll call ‘only in Vegas’ moments! The light show on the ceiling also adds another really cool element, and it just feels like another little resort within the city. 

I just thought I’d share an outfit I wore during one of my trips there (I made 2) which was a late afternoon into evening outing, so funky-casual felt like the order of the day. 

  

You may have seen a few celebs pictured wearing this pinafore in khaki which I also really like, but I purposely avoided that colour because I’d seen a few people wearing it and wanted to be a little different. 

I adore this rust colour for going into autum too so I’ll be wearing this with tights or long boots then. My only teeny issue with it came when I sat down as it revealed a bit more of my wibbly thighs than I’m comfor table with. But this is a piece I really like and have styled in a couple of different ways for day and night since I got it.

Thanks for checking out my look, there may be more on the way soon.

TRAVEL/ Things People Don’t Tell You About Las Vegas

Night shirt Boohoo 

My #LasVegas experience is almost over…so I thought I’d share some things that may be helpful for those of you travelling here in the future. 

1- The Vegas Sign   This awesome sign that everyone wants a pic with is pretty much next to the airport runway, so if you go during your trip it can be a loooooong walk from where you’re staying (or a semi-expensive taxi fare)

2- Taxis/Cabs   You can’t hail a cab in Vegas…I know right! Apparently it’s not legal for them to stop so going to a taxi rank or calling the company are the only ways and sometimes they take a little while so you need to allow for that…also, most of them aren’t yellow like this pic (I only mention this because I kind of expected them to be a bit like New York cabs) another little tip I learnt- if you’re taking a taxi from the airport to your hotel on the strip, make sure you ask the drive to avoid the tunnel as that can add on an extra $10 (legally the drivers have to take you the shortest route anyway but it’s worth knowing in case)

3- Buses are Good!   There’s a great local bus network that’s pretty cheap and travels right down the strip and to Freemont Street (aka ‘Old Vegas’). Better than the monorails and taxis easily! The SDX is much quicker but doesn’t stop everywhere, The Deuce takes forever but stops at every point on the strip

4- Sunday Pedestrians   Everyone in Vegas is slow, like, snail learning to crawl sloooooooow. Also, they have no comprehension of the fact that there are other people around them and think nothing of randomly stopping in the street, zig zagging a cross the sidewalk or chatting right in front of street crossings. Mucho annoying.

5- Street Drinking    Unsurprisingly, there are bars literally on the street! You can buy these massive yard high frozen cocktails and just walk around the strip…it doesn’t get much more Vegas than that!

6- Food    If you’re from a part of the UK that’s ridiculously cheap like me, all Vegas food seems very expensive…well on the strip it really is! Weirdly breakfast was one of the priciest meals for me, but as you can see by this pic, it was often well worth it! 

7-Things Close   Here’s me thinking that pretty much everything would be open all hours, but no. Restaurants and bars actually close, and some of them even close before midnight…wassup with that?!?!

8-Strip Club Promoters    Put it is way – if this is reflexion of how hot the girls would be in the club, people would be paying them to put it all back ‘ooooooon baby!

9- People Aren’t as Dressed up/Stylish as You Think    top Missy Empire

 this disappointed me as I thought everyone would be walking round in super high wedges and fabulous resort wear but nope, everyone dresses in shorts etc just like a regular holiday. Even in the evenings some people didn’t bother to change and stayed in the casinos in what they were wearing. However if you’re in Vegas on Friday/Saturday nights then people do glam up more.

10- It’s Not as Hot as You Think   Swimsuit Boohoo/ Sunglasses Cherry Diva

 we’ll obviously it is (in fact we were on a severe weather alert because temperatures spiked so high during our stay) but it’s not particularly humid. Most of the heat is dry in comparison to say Turkey, so when you’re walking between places it’s not as terrible as you’d imagine at all (unless you’re by the pool you’re mostly inside) obviously sun protection is still a must regardless!

Hope these tips help some of you a little bit, Begas is definitely worth a visit!

FASHION/ Vegas Wishlist

So I’m going on holiday to Las Vegas soon, fairly sure I may have mentioned that…about 20 times in every post for the few weeks…sorry for the overkill but I’m ridiculously excited that I finally get to go after many years of wanting to! I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect wardrobe for what feels like FOREVER and I’m almost there, but these are some extra little bits that I feel would finish my suitcase to perfection…

  

I’ve opted for a fairly small palette of colours to make it super easy to put everything together (I also have some pinks, camels and greys packed too) I haven’t picked up the card clutch bag yet because I wasn’t sure if it was too cheesy? I’m relying on your comments to tell me! I also thought it was a good ide to take an all white look, just in case I FINALLY convince Mr Alice that it would cute to renew our vows whilst we’re in the wedding capital of the World (part of the reason we’re going is to celebrate 5yrs of marriage) feel free to leave comments for him in support of my plea!

Black Floral Coord AX Paris/ House of Cards Box Clutch LA Sula/ Rinestone Headband Cherry Diva/ White Bardot Top Boohoo/ Backless White Jumpsuit Miss Foxy/ Nude V Front Shift Dress Missy Empire/ Cut Out Swimsuit Missguided/ Beige Cage Lace Ups Ego

What else would you pack? Feel free to also leave me any ideas about what else we should be doing in Vegas, we have lots of ideas but the more the merrier.
