Q&A- What Happens In Vegas

I received the following question-
Need some advice…
I am going to Vegas in a month. We are doing a short 3 day trip. I know I will be packing 1-2 swimsuits and a cover up for the days, but my big question is about my shoes. We are only taking 1 suitcase so I can’t pack every pair I own. We have no specific plans so I don’t know if we will be walking the strip at night, going to a show, staying around our hotel, etc. etc. I plan to wear sundresses at night and would love to pair them with a really fun heal, but I know my feet couldn’t handle miles of walking with heals. I refuse to wear dresses with tennis shoes. HAHAHA. So do you have an idea of a fun shoe that is a bit fun/sexy/not over the top/and comfortable to wear with a sundress?
Thanks,
Meghan

Thank you for your question!

Oh, I know your pain.  I love to overpack.  If I tend to overpack one item, it would be shoes.  Shoes make such a big difference in an outfit.  Don’t think so?  Pair a sneaker with a short skirt and you look like you should be going to play tennis.  Pair that same skirt with a heel, completely different look.
When we went to France a few summers ago, this was my concern.  I mean, there are a few times when you are in PARIS that you want to dress up and look nice.  So how do you justify packing a pair of heels when you know that you’ll do a ton of walking and be only wearing them a few times.
My suggestion is a pair of low heels or wedge espadrilles.  If you want to really be able to go somewhere formal, a pair of low sandal heels will help you both get there and still look nice with a pretty dress.
Below are some examples.  The wedges are a touch more casual but still not terrible to walk in.  Remember the platform under the toes will be more comfortable and don’t forget an ankle strap!

Have a great time!

Tree Trimming Party

If you’ve been invited to a tree trimming party, don’t take your outfit too seriously.  Wear something homey and comfortable that still hits the holiday high notes.
Start with some silk pants, not just for pajamas anymore.  Add on a cardigan with a fun and festive print.  Accessorize only with a scarf and either cute socks or flats, depending on how casual the party is.
Oh, and a fun ornament!
