10 Things To Do In Vegas

This post is sponsored by The Venetian Resort Las Vegas and ShopStyle. I just got home from a whirlwind 48-hour trip to Vegas and wanted to share everything I did! I hadn’t been to Vegas in years prior to this trip so it was a lot of fun to be back. The Venetian Resort Las Vegas was kind enough to host me for this trip, and they really pulled out all of the stops. There is SO much more to Vegas than you’d think, and I’m excited to share what some of my favorite activities were! 10 Things To Do In Vegas1. Book a room at The Venetian Resort The property is gorgeous, has SO many amazing restaurants to choose from, and excellent service from start to finish. We stayed in The Palazzo section of the resort which was so nice. 2. Take a gondola ride around the propertyThere’s an indoor and outdoor gondola area, but if weather permits, I recommend doing the short 12 minute outdoor ride. 3. Head to Bouchon for breakfastI was blown away by the food quality at this restaurant. You feel as though you’ve been transported to a French cafe – and they have every pastry you could ever dream of on the menu. Don’t leave without ordering the beignets! 4. Spend the afternoon by the poolEven in November, Thomas and I were able to throw on our suits and lay out by the pool! It was MUCH needed Vitamin D and I love that they have so many different pools and chairs for you to relax at. 5. Get dim sum at Mott 32This restaurant is so gorgeous – it’s dark and sophisticated. The food is unreal – you can’t leave without ordering the duck! 6. Shop ’til you dropVegas is one of my favorite places to shop. No really it is! I actually bought my very first Chanel in Vegas. There’s truly a store for everyone – so take your time strolling through the beautiful Venetian square and pop into all of the shops along the way. 7. Indulge in pizza at Sixth+MillIf you’re in the mood for lunch or dinner in between activities, head to the square where you can indulge in delicious pizza, pasta, and Italian cuisine while people watching and getting serenaded by opera singers and musicians. 8. Go to the Atomic Saloon ShowThis is the #2 show in Vegas right now for a reason…it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. SO entertaining, absolutely hilarious, and a MUST if you’re visiting Vegas. 9. Get cocktails at ElectraThis swanky cocktail bar makes a delicious martini- and is such a great spot for a pre or post dinner drink. 10. Dance the night away at TAO and/or LavoBoth venues are some of my favorites (they’re also in NYC!) and have not only great food, but a great ambiance. You’re destined to have a fabulous time at either one! If you’re craving a warm weather, fun getaway – I highly recommend booking a trip to Vegas and staying at The Venetian Resort! It really is the ideal trip any time of year – because there’s ALWAYS something going on. Thomas and I are already scheming our next trip back there!!! I linked everything I wore on our trip + a few other items that would be PERFECT below!

Shearling Coat in Soho

Happy Friday!!!! I cannot believe Thanksgiving is almost here… like where did November go?! This happens every single year – the holidays fly by, and before you know it, it’s Christmas! It seems like everyone I know has already started their Christmas shopping, and I have yet to even start AHHH! I’m on a mission this weekend and next week to get at least halfway through my list ;) Best Winter CoatsIf you are looking for no-fail, quality, unique gifts – be sure to check out the Nordstrom Made section. It’s FULL of exclusive brands you won’t find anywhere else. This coat is from my friend Rachel Parcell’s collection with Nordstrom and let me tell you, it is so beautifully made. It’s made of a soft faux shearling material that you would never know was faux because it feels so luxurious and plush. It runs true to size, although if you are on the shorter side/petite I would size down. I’m actually thinking of getting this coat for my sister for Christmas because she’s been looking for a pretty winter white/cream jacket for over a year now!!! What I love about this coat is that you can dress it up or down – I can easily wear it with a black velvet jumpsuit, sparkly dress for date night, or jeans and a cozy sweater like I did here for running errands and weekend outings. Also love this lighter version if you live in warmer temps! Cozy SweatersI am obsessed with all of the sweaters from Chelsea28 which are also exclusive to Nordstrom. They’re all SO reasonably priced, come in the best colors, and ideal to buy for yourself or loved ones. Who doesn’t need another classic sweater for winter?! In addition to the sweater I’m wearing, I also ordered this DREAMY cashmere cream sweater, and this turtleneck. Stretchy Skinny JeansThese faded black wash jeans are super stretchy and come with this chic gold button. Stretchy denim is honestly key for me at this point. I cannot bother with tight, stiff jeans anymore!!! I like to be able to move and eat in ’em you know? FYI I found these jeans to run a size big, so I would size down because they do have a lot of stretch in them. Fun Holiday OutfitsIf you’re looking for fun holiday outfit ideas – I just bought these red pants from the Halogen x Atlantic Pacific collection and can’t recommend them enough! They’re such a vibrant shade and look great with a red sweater and camel coat draped over the shoulders, or even just a cream silky blouse. I also love this velvet cami and this sequin pencil skirt. Gift IdeasAnd for gift ideas – I love this faux croc bag (looks so much more expensive than it is), this chic black clutch, this wallet on a chain, these leather touch screen gloves, this marble + wood cutting board (this always sells out every year so get it before it does!), this cozy blanket, and this pretty wine stopper.

Cozy Teddy Coat

I love a teddy coat for fall and the holidays. They’re plush, cozy, and completely make a simple outfit come to life. I’m VERY picky about teddy coats though…I’ve tried on several over the years, and two things that I’ve consistently found are that they’re too bulky and too stiff! A teddy coat is obviously already going to be a bit oversized given the material, but you still want to look cute, am I right?! And further more you want to be able to move comfortably in it! Well, lucky for you, I have found the perfect cozy teddy coat – and it’s under $50!!! Cozy Teddy CoatThis teddy coat is from the new Scoop collection at Walmart, which I’ve been professing my love for a few months now. I was an avid Scoop shopper when they had a boutique in Soho years ago, and always loved the chic styles they carried. It’s so cool that they’ve reinvented themselves and made their sophisticated styles attainable for everyone now. The quality is beautiful – it really, really is – and I was so impressed with this coat. I bought everything else from the line including these faux leather pants, faux snakeskin booties, and great v-neck sweater. FYI this coat runs true to size, but you could absolutely size up especially if you’re tall (it was a bit short on me and I’m 5’7′.) If you’re looking for a great heeled black bootie – these ones from Walmart’s Fashion section look WAY more expensive than they are (you may have seen me post a video of them on Stories), and are ridiculously easy to walk in/stand in for hours since they have a chunky heel. I usually wear an 8.5/9 and the size 9 fit me perfectly with a thick sock. If you’re in between sizes I would actually say to size down if you want to wear thin socks and have narrow feet. These boots are going to be an ideal date night heel in the rain/snow since I won’t have to worry about beating them up!!! Walmart Holiday FashionBe sure to check out the entire Scoop collection at Walmart and all of the cute Walmart Fashion holiday pieces. I am telling you, you will be impressed. I currently have my eye on this sequin midi skirt, this black blazer with gold buttons, and this classic cable knit sweater as well.

November in Nolita

Happy November! I had a much needed low key weekend at home after a busy social week. I’m reading a book called Quiet which celebrates introverts and talks about how our society deeply undervalues them. As an introvert myself, this book is really helping me better understand myself and why I like/dislike certain things. I highly recommend it if you know or have an inkling that you are an introvert as well! Mercury is in retrograde right now which means things are always a little bit more difficult with communication, relationships, and more. Call me “woo woo” but I really believe in this, and amp up my self care routines during this period. It always last a few weeks, and so I just make an effort to meditate, go to therapy, take a yoga class, and relax at home with baths + face masks + movies. Now let’s talk about my outfit ;) This gorgeous black fall coat is from my friend Julia’s line; Gal Meets Glam. Julia is one of the sweetest, most hardworking bloggers in the business and I love what she has done with her brand. Her coat collection is a new addition to GMG and they are all beautiful. The quality is excellent, and I’ve been wearing this coat nonstop since she sent it to me. It’s warm, classic, and so easy to toss on. I recommend sizing down if you’re in between sizes since it runs big. I’m wearing an XS here. I paired this coat with my new Schutz heels (so affordable!), and fun houndstooth trousers. I love a trouser – especially a houndstooth print. Also, I linked 7+ options below of all price ranges. As a fun accessory, I brought out my Steamline Luggage hat box which is not only functional, but chic as a home decor/closet accessory! I linked another option here which comes in several colors and would make a great gift for the fashionista in your life!
