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!


  1. Awww, your outfit is SO sweet! I love it :)

    Congrats for going to your first trade show, that's awesome! I always plan my outfits ahead too when I travel for work, I a do list by never thought of drawing the items... such a good idea!
