Vegas Packing List | Baulbes and Cocktails

I am leaving for Vegas this Friday. While I am super excited the first thing that crossed my mind was...


I was assuming my Mom tunics and J Crew ensembles were not going to cut it. 

Immediately, I wrote my friend Kate and Kelley from Baubles and Cocktails. They are my "go to" for fashion advice and happen to be  obsessed with Sin City.


Kate and Kelley here from Baubles and Cocktails. We are so excited to be guest blogging for Jessie- she’s one of our favorite bloggers. When she asked us to create a packing list for Las Vegas, we were excited and jealous all at once. Las Vegas is one of our favorite places so we apologize if we go overboard! If you have ever seen our blog before you probably know two things about us- we are usually overdressed and we are horrible packers.

We tend to get all decked out when we are in Vegas, but anything goes. Here are some important things to keep in mind...

Las Vegas can be VERY hot... so if you plan to be walking around or hanging outside your best bet is something light and airy or a bathing suit and cover-up. You should also keep in mind that a lot of Vegas pools are fancy- so don’t think twice about piling on all of your baubles- you will look fabulous.

If you are on the strip....It really just makes sense to walk everywhere. So wear comfortable (but cute) shoes and go light with your purse. (Obvi make it big enough for all of your winnings) Inside the casinos it is definitely cool- so maybe throw a scarf in your bag or even a fancy party cardi.

If you are going to the clubs, which you should because it is an experience, just remember go big or go home. Unless you are on a list you are more than likely going to wait in line (depending on the time of year) so you need to werk it. We are talking sequins, LBD, high heels, attitude, you name it.

Last but definitely not least, don’t forget to gamble. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to gamble- pick a low dollar table and play a game like craps- you can play a while without losing that much money. (Plus you get free drinks while gambling) Most of the people working the tables are willing to teach you how to play! Our favorites: craps, roulette, blackjack and SLOT MACHINES (this is where we always win big).

NIGHT: Top, Leather Leggings, Studded Pumps, Clutch, Black and Green Earrings, Sass & Bide Dress, Strappy Sandals, Sequin Dress, Tassel Earrings, Bracelet

Hope we didn’t bore y’all too much, but once we get started on Vegas we can’t stop. We’re glad we got to connect with all of you lovely readers and we would love for you to check out our blog!
