My Ideal Day in Las Vegas


Now, as you may or may not know, Las Vegas was actually my home for a short period of time. When I heard about Vegas.com and their #UltimateVegasOutfit challenge I knew it would be a piece of cake since I have experienced Las Vegas first hand.

I'd keep my look casual. This t-shirt dress is really easy to wear, and I've paired it with a flannel shirt for the aesthetic, but also because it might get chilly in some spots inside. Also, f you're going to be walking around a lot throughout the day, comfortable shoes are really important.

Personally, I love to roam around and find new things to see. One of my absolute favorite places on the strip is the Venetian. The architecture looks much older than it actually is, and you don't really feel like you're in the middle of the desert. Above the casino floor is where my interest really piques. There are tons of little shops to browse through, and a few free art galleries to walk through. The first time I did this, I stumbled upon a few Tim Burton pieces, and that's what really sold me. The atmosphere, or Streetmosphere if you will, continues to seal the deal. I've yet to walk through without seeing performers of some kind. Around Christmas 2013, there were performers walking around on stilts, covered head to (bottom of stilt) in flowers. That was a favorite. 

One thing I haven't tried is Casanova, but if you're hungry and you get the chance, pop in and let me know what you think. Of course, you can always go for a gondola ride as well. I haven't done that yet either, but it looks fun. Why not? Seriously guys, go hang out at the Venetian, pop into a Coffee Bean, and wander.

You don't have to walk too far for what I'd recommend. Like I mentioned before, I'm really not one for partying, but there are so many other things to do for fun. I'd recommend heading over to the Bellagio to spend the evening. I wouldn't wear anything too dressy for this, although you definitely can, because only you make the rules. I'd keep the boots pretty low, and though it's not ever that cold in the valley, it can get chilly when the sun goes down, so a loose knit sweater is helpful. The skirt is tight, so that's pretty Vegas appropriate. I'd wear my hair up for the "evening" effect, but also because it would probably be a mess at this point, let's be real.

I would actually recommend heading over while the sun is still up. I always like to walk through the conservatory while it's lit by the sun. If you're a real plant lover like myself, it's pretty enjoyable. It's also free, so that's a plus. It is always open, but like I said, I'd recommend sunlight. It's just a nice atmosphere. Also, depending on how early you're there, I'd consider checking out the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art. It's a really lovely space, and though it may not be free, I'd really think about it if the current collection appeals to you. When I was last there, I saw an exhibit called Painting Women, and I went on about it for ages. I loved it.

My favorite time to see the Fountains of Bellagio is after the sun goes down. To be fair, I've seen it from practically every angle, and even from the Eiffel Tower across the street, and it's pretty cool anyway, but everything is magic at night. Trust me. The shows are pretty frequent, so it's hard to miss. Something I have actually yet to experience here is O by Cirque du Soleil, though I've heard nothing but rave reviews. I'd definitely check that out.



I want to mention that though I was contacted about writing this post, I haven't been paid, and all opinions are my own. I may have willingly left Las Vegas, but it's still a pretty fun place to be, and I do miss it sometimes. I'd really like to go back for a visit soon.

Have any of you ever been to Vegas? If so, what's your favorite thing to do?

  4. Amber you've done SUCH a good job of this! You've transformed a bog standard outfit post into a really knowledgeable, in-depth and enticing 'review & what do in Vegas', and so I really, really enjoyed this! :D

    If i'm honest, Vegas has never really appealed to me because I had the impression it was all just really 'new' and commercial, but your experience of it has changed my opinion already. It's actually somewhere I can now envisage in a better light, and is somewhere that seems exciting but still kind of slow-paced enough if you want to do it a particular way. How clever you are!

    Also - I really like your flannel shirt in the first outfit suggestion...I need to get me one of those...!

    Thank you for all your wonderful comments on our blog, too, by the way. It honestly makes me smile to see your name pop up and for you to keep coming back and reading our stuff! You're lovely for making such a big effort, and just wanted to let you know it hadn't gone unnoticed. It makes me root for you & your blog!

    Hope you have a lovely day. :)
