As if it isn’t bad enough that she is going to grad school in the fall and won’t be able to supply office chocolate, a listening ear, or … anything I request at a moment’s notice, my favourite Chantel is going away on vacation for most of July, leaving me to drink my late afternoon
cocktails lattes alone. SIGH. But, she redeemed herself a little by asking for my help to pack and agreeing to be on the blog again. Without further ado, let me reveal the first stop on Chantel’s vacation! (please say that with a French accent in mind, just to make it more glamorous for us)
The MASSES (3 people) have spoken and they agree with me, of course. Peggy gave a great suggestion to add a coloured cardi…
For the Cirque show, a little more colour and pattern is perfect, especially when it’s thrifted!
Shopping in Vegas heat requires cool comfort. We real women know that skirts can present some chaffing issues, so these cute shorts from Target are a better choice. We don’t want anything impeding the shopping.
Best of all, these pieces will be versatile for the next leg of the trip since Chantel won’t be able to come home first and repack. Next leg is…
We went with the first LBD because it had more versatility for rest of the trip.
I have knotted my chambray recently and have been seeing it everywhere. Tie a chambray over a dress or anything!
Go ahead and be knotty! Snicker snicker.
Showcasing the two bags and scarves she plans to pack that will mix, match and extend all the other pieces.
Skinny jeans styled with her Vegas tank. Swap the necklace, add a scarf and BOOM another outfit.
Basic black pants rolled with her Vegas red pumps look good with all her tops including a floral tank.
The sparkle & lace tee is so much more interesting than basic gray, and added mileage to her Cirque dress.
More shorts looks! Stripes and floral always makes us think of Franish.
The casual cotton floral tank will mix with everything else and her ModCloth skull tee reminds me again that she’s a young hip 25yo.
It’s an embroidered lacy skull and will add some tough chic to her other pieces.
