Sequins on the Strip

Last week my husband and I took a short vacation to Las Vegas before winter break ended. One of the perks of going to Las Vegas during this time is that the crowds are relatively small in comparison to other times of the year, especially New Years. Whenever I go to Vegas, I always debate what to wear. On the one hand, I want to look stylish so that I can go out to a nice dinner in the evening but, on the other hand, we usually do a lot of walking during the day, so I want to be comfy. This look, I think, combines the best of both worlds!

So as you can see, I am wearing my rainbow striped sweater from Talbots, yet again! I truly love this sweater and it's gotten a lot of wear in the last month or so. I paired it with a sequin skirt from J. Crew that's been sitting in my closet for quite some time. The unexpected casual twist to this ensemble are the sneakers! I saw a few people on Instagram wear this exact skirt with sneakers and it looked really fun and made a traditionally dressy fabric more daytime appropriate. Also, as I mentioned before, we did a lot of walking on this particular day, so the sneakers really helped. (My feet were still, however, a bit achy and sore at the end of the day.) Luckily, I was able to sit down at the Bellagio and have a much deserved cocktail and then a lovely dinner at Picasso that evening!

  3. That is such a fun sequin skirt! Sequins are perfect for Vegas but you dressed them down beautifully to work for daytime with the casual shoes :)
