Vegas fashion essentials // The coral cardigan and Chanel purse.

     Do any of you have a fashion item that you wear all of the time? I have a few key pieces in my wardrobe, and I brought one of my newer favorites on our Vegas trip, my coral cardigan from LOFT that was apart of my Easter outfit this year. I was able to wear it six out of the seven days on our trip (and the 7th was spent completely in the airport) and I made it look totally different every time! That is the great thing about packing key pieces when you're travelling, you know you'll have something that will look good with the other clothes that you've packed, and it takes less space to have something that you know you'll wear a lot! Here's a few of the ways that I wore my cardigan:

After just arriving in Vegas! I'm wearing the same dress that I wore on Easter as well. Both are super comfy and great for a chic travelling look!

Seeing the Beatles LOVE Cirque du Soleil show at the Mirage Hotel!

Out to dinner at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Walking on the south side of the Strip with the Excalibur hotel in the background!

Checking out Barney's New York with mom (a store that was wayyyy out of our price range!).

     In many of these pictures you might have also spied a gorgeous little Chanel purse. That was my second fashion essential for this trip! My usual purse is quite large and heavy, and I knew with all the walking that we were doing that I didn't want to bother with that. Then I remembered that my grandma had given my mom a genuine Chanel bag years ago, and that my mom had given it to me! I don't really ever use it around home or school, but if Vegas isn't the best place to use a fancy purse then I don't know where is!

     I thought that the purse matched even more than the cardigan, and I'm so happy that I brought it! I was even able to take this fun picture:

     Vegas was so much fun, and I can't wait to share even more pictures with y'all this week!
