Lucy's Cruelty-Free Beauty and Living: My #UltimateVegasOutfit for a Weekend Getaway!

My #UltimateVegasOutfit for a Weekend Getaway!

Monday, June 29, 2015

They say "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas," but not when your outfits are calling to be hastagged, Tweet'd & Instagram'd!  

A weekend getaway in Vegas to me consists of 3 things: lounging by an amazing pool, doing some afternoon shopping/sightseeing on the Las Vegas Strip, and then hitting a show and the casinos until the wee morning hours.  Last time I went to Vegas, it was for my cousin's wedding and time was limited, so we didn't have the chance to really paint the town red...so I put together what I call my Future Las Vegas Weekend Getaway!


I am a big fan of old school, vintage appeal and I think one of the Las Vegas hotels I am most attracted to is the Flamingo.  A boho chic look covers all the basics so I can swing by the Paradise Garden Buffet and then lounge poolside, by the pink flamingos.  I was ready when I heard build-your-own Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar!  Check out the view outside of the Buffet...it's like a tropical oasis~~*  The pool at the Flamingo is not too modern or too outdated, but it has that perfect balance of old world Vegas.

No bohochic look is complete without some cool sunglasses & a floppy hat!  I love that these shades are heart-shaped and the hat is not a typical neutral color.  It also ties right in to the colors on this adorable 2-piece high waisted retro bikini and sheer kimono.  Who doesn't love a sheer kimono? <3

I can't lounge by the pool ALLL day;)  I still have a few hours to kill so it's time to hit the Strip!  Sightseeing & shopping is inevitable on the Strip.  The deals are great (I did have the chance of squeezing in a little of both the last time I was there).  The strip is good to see on foot, as you run in to quite the interesting person as you hit the pavement.  You also get to see things like Bellagio's Fountain Show and sip on a Frrrozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity 3, just outside of Caesar's Palace.  My husband and I went there right after a show and the food was delicious!

An afternoon of shopping calls for cool comfort.  These over-sized black shades keep our eyes protected while keeping us looking totally mod.  The yellow maxi dress is bright and comfortable, and, the sheer headscarf keeps our hair under control and adds a pop of color to the whole look.  Fringe is in baby and this bag is a great statement piece, plus it goes great with the neutral sandals and turquoise earrings.

At night is when everything really comes to life in Vegas, and quite honestly, it can last way beyond what we would normally consider an evening out.  Hence back to the old saying, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!";)  Vegas is famous for it's shows and the Flamingo's X Burlesque is perfect for a couples getaway.  I'm thinking we may have to discreetly stop by our room to blow off some steam if you catch my drift;)   Once we've worked up an appetite, it's time for dinner and some gambling at my next pick, The Cosmopolitan!  I'm thinking Greek seafood for dinner and that is only at Estiatorio Milo's.  From there, we hit the game tables, and of course my outfit has to match the decor!  That's the best part about planning my entire wardrobe around my weekend!

I am sticking to pin up retro when it comes to my nighttime outfit!  I just love that it screams Vegas!  A red peplum top really pops against a black pin skirt.  The necklace and the bag also bring their own flair to the outfit, but don't take away too much from the real star of the show.  The heels are a total showstopper in fire engine red and studded skulls.  This outfit can only get better with a perfectly red pout, and a sleek black cateye.
