I'm going to Las Vegas next week! It's for work; we're going to a trade show - my first one ever! I've been to Las Vegas once, but I was about 12, so this is my first time going as an adult. It's going to be so nice to escape these frigid Minnesota temperatures for a few days, too. I don't even care if it's not "nice" according to Las Vegas peeps; it's still going to feel amazing to us!

There's a bit of a challenge to taking a vacation to a completely different climate than what you've planned your 30 for 30 around! But I think I can make it work. Instead of wearing 2 pairs of leggings, I'll just wear one :)

Here is my sketch planning out my outfits for the days I'll be in Vegas:


I've found that planning outfits for a stretch of time (vacation, weekend getaway, holiday at the parents' house) really helps me. Some people make spreadsheets (check out this 30 for 30 plan: Work With What You've Got) but I'm more of a visual thinker.

Thanksgiving plans (during the last 30 for 30):


Christmas weekend plans (not during a 30x30 challenge, but I still wanted to bring as few clothes as possible):


Not sure if I'll be able to get good shots of my outfits while I'm in Las Vegas, but I'm sure I'll be snapping lots of other photos!
