It’s that time of year again- the Academy of Country Music Awards. This basically means that all of Nashville’s music industry relocates onto the strip of Vegas for a few days. I’m not a gambler, but I am a shopper, so if there is any down time on this trip you will find me at the mall or at the pool–can’t wait for some sunshine and warm weather. Although I am sure much fun will be had, this is a working trip, so we gotta take care of business. This year I will be working with Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and wife, Kip Moore and J.T. Hodges- so watch for them on the red carpet. Since half of my suitcase will be filled with hair and makeup tools and products, here is what I will be squeezing into the rest of it. My goal is cool, yet super comfortable since I will be moving and on my feet all day. Here’s what’s in my bag!
Goldsign Lure Skinny Jeans
I’m just got these jeans and I’m obsessed with them. Look for them in the next How We Wore It….coming soon!
Stray Heart Rolled Tee
I’m always a sucker for a good white tee. I recently visited Nashville’s new boutique, Emerson Grace, and found this one. I love the rolled sleeves and the bottom roll which helps perfectly achieve the half tuck look. Shirts like this are perfect for working days for me because they have enough detail to make them cool, but are super soft and ultimately just a comfortable tee. Click the link to find it online.
Nasty Gal Dylan Top and Topshop Chunky Eagle Necklace
Is it just me or is the name “Nasty Gal” the WORST name ever for an online boutique? There is nothing worse than getting a package on your doorstep with “NASTY GAL” spelled out on top of it. I’m sure my UPS guy thinks I’m into some freaky stuff. Either way…I love this top and think it will be perfect for a dinner or drinks one night in Vegas with my new Goldsign jeans and favorite Topshop necklace that I just can’t seem to get enough of.
Frame Skinny Jeans
I go through phases where I only want to wear basic, really good fitting jeans. No muss, no fuss, no rips, no nothing….just a good fit on my butt and legs. That’s all. Oddly enough, that can be extremely difficult to find, but recently I stubbled across Frame Denim, an L.A. based company with awesome jeans. This specific pair is exactly that simple, perfect skinny jean fit and wash. Kind of obsessed to be honest. I’ve worn them pretty much every day since I bought them.
Nasty Gal Split Tee
Nasty Gal strikes again. Sorry UPS guy. Man. Love the high slits on this shirt….fun twist to an otherwise basic oversized tee.
Jeffrey Campbell Minimal Lace Up Heel
These shoes are my version of a summertime bootie. They come in multiple colors, the heel height is not too high to wear all day and the open-toed lace up is perfect for warm weather. I think they are the perfect addition to my Frame Denim and oversized tee.
Painted Threads Oversized Knit Cardigan
Found this gem in the Juniors Department one night. It was cheap, which is always nice, and is the perfect weight for warm days that get a little chilly after sunset. I have it in black.
And of course you always have to bring a swim suit to Vegas! In my opinion, the pools are the best part. Is it bad that I went and got a spray tan today so that I could lay out at the pool on Saturday and not offend people with my paleness?? Thanks Tanastacia! Check out VE Favorite Swimwear-2014 for tons of swimwear options. I went with this cute one from L Space and Vitamin A cover up.
