Have you checked out my 16 Spring Fashion Must Haves yet?
Hey all! Welcome to my weekly style post! Every week, I take pictures of my outfits and join other bloggers around blog land who do the same. These posts are something that I really enjoy, because I have always had a passion for fashion. I love putting together new outfits, and shopping my own closet to wear things in different ways. I wear the clothes I own forever, but I usually don’t wear any item in the exact same way more than once or twice. As a middle school counselor, I am always looking for inspiration, and ways to be stylish, professional, and age appropriate, and I hope to provide that same inspiration to other women and mothers in similar professions or lifestyles.
I don’t have a normal fashion post for you today, because I have been traveling for most of the past week, both to a work meeting, and then to Las Vegas. So, I thought I would give you a little glimpse into what I wore in Vegas. All of these pictures were taken using an iPhone, and with complete disregard to any type of style post so take that into consideration. In the picture above, I was pretending to kiss a wax Bruce Willis. He begged, so I couldn’t resist. In the below picture, this is the outfit I wore to fly there, and then to walk around for most of the day. It was only in the 70’s. These sandals were the perfect walking sandal too. And I bought this new purse just for my trip. I had been wanting a fringe bag, and I needed a new cross body bag to use for travel, so I couldn’t resist. It is currently on sale for $55.99, and it is genuine leather, so if you like it you might want to scoop it up!
I was pointing at a certain object in this picture to be funny, but I cropped it out so as not to offend anyone. Can you guess what it is? I wore this outfit to dinner at Gordon Ramsey’s Bar and Grille in Caesar’s Palace. Delicious dinner- and Caesar’s Palace is to die for. I had on really cute high heel sandals with this outfit, but of course LC didn’t get those in the picture – men! And big huge mistake on the heels in Vegas, BTW. Don’t do it! Everything I am wearing in this shot is old, except for the new bag, and you can find a link to it underneath of the picture above.
We spent a few hours at the pool one day, and it was heavenly being out in the sun for the first time this year (with sun screen of course!) I bought this cover up and this bathing suit just for the trip. Not a great picture, but I love this black lace cover up that I bought at Marshall’s! It has three quarter length sleeves and slits on the sides, and it is just adorable.
This is the bathing suit I had on under the cover up. I absolutely love it! I had originally ordered it from Macy’s in red, and there was a mishap with my order, so I ended up ordering it from Amazon except I couldn’t get it in red, so this is the color I chose, it’s called orchid, and I am glad I did. I also got it for a way better price at Amazon, so win win.
And here is the bathing suit on me, I debated back and forth on showing this picture, because my body is far from perfect, but I love this bathing suit and feel like it is sexy in all the right places, but it hides the ugly, so I wanted you to see it on a real body. It is a perfect compromise for a mom who doesn’t want to wear a bikini, but it also makes the husband happy, and least it did mine.
I wore this to dinner and out to explore one night. I think I may be wearing this red and white tank too much. But it is my favorite! I love the fit and the colors, and I can’t stop myself.
I am also over at The Mummy Chronicles today as Victoria’s Co-host for Whatcha Wearing Wednesday, so be sure to click over and give her some love today. And if you are a blogger link up your outfit post! You can join the party and link up at the bottom of this post.
