Day Into Night Vegas Outfits

This Day Into Night Vegas Outfits post has been in development for several weeks, way too long to indefinitely put it in a draft folder so proceed it is.

Hotel Grand openings, especially those on the Vegas strip, create buzz and inspire travel plans and all the fun details that go with the process.

When the date of the grand opening of Resorts World was announced, our let’s go to Vegas interest was piqued.

Should we trip to light fantastic?

Resorts-World--Las-Vegas

Resorts World Las Vegas

Crowded Vegas is not a personal favorite, and the grand reveal of a new property tends to bring out the crowds.

We slowed our dice roll on booking, electing to let the lookie-loos come, see, and depart before hitting the select button.

Boy, am I glad we waited.

COVID-19 Delta variant concerns, restrictions, mandates, and all the issues that go with cropped up, being all the reason needed for Dave the Builder and I, although fully vaccinated, to postpone any and all travel plans until we feel it safer and wiser to do so.

So here we find ourselves at present, stuck in the middle of flyover suburbia consumed in wanderlust with no trips booked for the foreseeable future.

Travel to Vegas vlogs, fashion blogs, shelter magazine features, and social media platform(s) of choice grant you a front row seat to the action, and serve the purpose as suitable alternative to keep me inspired and entertained.

West Coast Bound- 1966

As a person who has always loved to travel and coordinate trips to the adult version of Disneyland otherwise known as Las Vegas, I love the pre trip planning and packing day into night Vegas outfits process.

Well, well, well.  Who do we have here?

Why it’s a Vegas fashions through the decades pictorial show and tell.

Up first is a photo from February 1990 of Mr. & Mrs. Places In The Home at the newly opened Mirage.

I was decked out from head to toe in items from The Limited with the exception of the black faux mink coat that I absolutely loved.

Believe me when I tell you, it gets cold in the desert.

My Mom with Robert Urich aka Dan Tanna – Desert Inn Las Vegas 1978

This next photo of my mother and Mr. Dan Tanna himself, the late Robert Urich, is from 1978.

My parents were staying at the Desert Inn, and while my dad was golfing my mother enjoyed a full day of filming with the Vega$ stars and crew.

She established a friendship with Anne Francis who was guest starring in the episode being shot.

Ms. Francis invited my mother to join her for lunch and to play the role of her assistant by helping with her make-up and mic pack fitting.

Robert Urich aka Dan Tanna was as super cool and super nice off-screen as he was on-screen.

Great show, great memories, great photo.

Doris Day Cary Grant That Touch of MinkCall me old-fashioned, old school, or just plain old in my way of thinking, but I love dressing up for travel by airplane.

Here is my standard leaving on a jet plane outfit.

The multi-colored torsade is an oldie but goodie piece, and the COACH Horse and Carriage bag I actually bought in Vegas on our March 2009 trip after seeing a woman carrying the bag and falling in love with the gold horse and carriage emblem.

Jewelry Travel Tip:

Jewelry can present a pesky problem when going through airport security.

Traveling to Vegas calls for stack bracelets set with a fashion watch, rings, a graduated necklace trio, and a pair of the bigger the better CZ hoop earrings – all metal, all fabulous, all prime for setting off the metal detector.

When we arrive at our local airport I don’t have one piece of jewelry on, but what I do have is two clear zipper storage bags full of my Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas picks in my carry-on bag.

Simply pull the clear storage bags out, place in the bin, and meet up and adorn arms, wrists, ears, and neck with your jewelry on the other side of security.

An average Vegas trip for us is for at least eight nights.

By the time our last day rolls around, casual chic is about all the fashion statement I can muster up.

I like the Twizzlers chew on this commercial with the guy sitting on the beach pondering “why can’t I wear white after Labor Day?”

What color, pattern, texture, or fabric you wear after Labor Day or any other day mirrors my belief about personal design styles.

It’s your thing, style or wear what you wanna style or wear.

Let the jewelry, bag, shoes, and accessories do the talking.

Vegas is hot in many ways, including the day into night temperatures.

Locals offer the “it’s a dry heat” explanation to Vegas visitors, and there’s truth to it, but it’s also like a 2200 watt blow dryer set on high constantly blowing in your face type of heat.

My dad shared a ton of stories and advice over the many years of his travel to Vegas career.

Friends would inquire about the spring into winter heat and how my dad dealt with it.

His stock answer?

It’s always a cool 68-72 degrees inside the casinos.

By a show of virtual hands, how many of you hate digging in a purse, bag, or tote for anything?

When you’re walking the Strip, checking out the hotels, casinos, shops, and attractions, a traditional purse can be a cumbersome tagalong.

Options are good, and this chic little number hits the 3-in-1 accessory must have jackpot.

"Day Pool time rates high on the priority list of things to do with Vegas visitors.

I’m one of those people who enjoys the desert sun and heat in small and shaded doses, so I SPF up and dress pool chic on a couple of days of our trip(s) for a quick trip down to the pool area to check out the scene and enjoy a refreshing tropical infused beverage poolside.

One of the most appealing aspects of our Vegas trips is the costume change hour- the hour (or two) spent in the hotel room in the late afternoon having a cup of coffee or glass of wine and selecting our day into night Vegas outfits.

Different opinions weigh in on the Las Vegas at night jewelry situation with most agreeing the look to go for is chic.

Fabulous fakes give the look of real.

Walking is a part of the Vegas experience.

Hotels and attractions appear much closer than they actually are, and your feet will be the first to make you aware of the fact that you have greatly miscalculated the distance between properties, restaurants, shops, and attractions.

Dave and I usually rent a car for the entirety of our trip, however, we do plenty of walking in the form of shopping, gambling, restaurant hopping, etc…

I’ve gone the super cute new strappy sandal route and the super chic new espadrille route before to my regret.

Las Vegas is not the place to break in new shoes, friends.

Trust me on this one!

Balance between comfort and style is achievable.

Check those end-of-summer sales and clearance events for super stylish, super affordable options.

Heels in the evening for a show, dinner, or home base gaming is the preferred footwear choice.

Several weeks before one of our Vegas trips I took a less than graceful trip over a DDR pad.

It was almost a total footwear disaster until I found three pairs of sequined flip flops on Amazon in red, gold, and black.

You’d think this choice would be an epic style fail, but I received more compliments on the bedazzled flip flops much to my delight.

Dry desert air is not kind to the skin.

I complain about the humidity at home, but miss it in regards to my skin when in Vegas.

Foot cream, moisturizer, and lip balm come in as beauty essentials, and this is the trio of products I depend on.

Who knows when the coast will be clear (COVID-19 speaking) for comfortable and safe travel.

Until it is, I’ll remain inspired, live vicariously through travel posts and fashion sights and sites, and ready to go at a moment’s notice.
