how to: pack for a quick trip.

Happy Tuesday, glitter girls!

We’re headed back to Las Vegas this afternoon for a quick trip to the MAGIC tradeshow. We’ll land tonight, work all day Wednesday, and head home to Atlanta on the red-eye late Wednesday night. We’re packing light this time. Our plan:

Tuesday: Meetings + Flight

We both have meetings Tuesday morning (including a vanity necessary stop at DryBar) before our flight leaves, so we can’t just schlub it. Skinny jeans and vests will do us right and take us all the way to LV.

Tuesday Night: Drinks

Once we get to Vegas, I’ll keep the fur vest but swap the skinnies for leather shorts, the lace tee for a flowy top, and the boots for heels. Once key to packing light is to wear your bulkiest items on the plane. For me, that’s the fur vest and boots.

Fur Vest + Leather Shorts + Heels

Wednesday: Tradeshow + Industry Happy Hour + Dinner + Flight

We always fight the urge to dress like twins when we’re together–our brains work the same way, so it’s tough! We’ll both be wearing versions of this cute, layered outfit for the tradeshow, happy hour at BCBG, one of our fave vendors, dinner and flight home late Wednesday night.

The Packing List:

skinnys // lace tee // fur vest // scarf // pashmina (for the plane) // black leather shorts // peachy flowy top // nude heels // black leggings // oversize tunic // gray suede boots // leather jacket // striped tee and extra sweater (you never know!) // curling iron //dry shampoo // notebooks and office supplies // phone charger

The Luggage:

We both have a version of the same Coach duffle, which is no longer available. This is probably the swan song for L’s duffle, though–ten years of weekly trips have taken their toll. Any suggestions for a replacement purchase?

The Manicure:

We’re both wearing Essie Sand Tropez, a perfectly neutral shade that won’t show chips during our whirlwind trip.

We’ll post pics of our trip (and our outfits!) on Friday. Until then, be sure to follow our twitter feed @glitter_blog_xo for behind-the-scenes pics of MAGIC.

friday five.

HAPPY FRIDAY! We’re *super* excited this work-week is coming to an end. Here’s what’s on our weekend agenda:

1. Bloomingdale’s Friends & Family: We love a sale. Now through Monday, October 1, take 20% off almost all regular and sale price purchases at Bloomingdales. Use code FRIENDS12 online (they’re also offering free shipping!). We’re feeling:

2. Nude Nails: As you know, we are ALL about glitzing up our nails. But, sometimes you have to tone it down:

and my personal fave… jazz by essie!

3. DIY: It’s no secret that we’re *huge* fans of Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere. Is it because she shares our love for glitter and beverage trays? Most likely. Weekends are for DIY projects. We love the rustic/sparkly look of this glitter tray. See tutorial here.

TRAY
perfect for a drinks presentation.

a little string goes a long way…

4. Ankle Boots: Ditch your heels tonight and slide on a pair of ankle boots. Less punishing than stilettos but just as fun (maybe even more so?).

Blazer + Shorts + Lace Top + Ankle Boots
black blazer + grey shorts + cream lace top + chestnut ankle boots
Ankle Boot Close Up
pescara boot available at Dish (912.871.3989). $49

5. Brunch: L and I have been frequenting Treehouse in Atlanta for years. It’s a hidden gem in Buckhead with the cutest patio and amazing food. My sweet friend Anny is moving to Chicago on Sunday so we will be sending her off with an AMAZING brunch.

TREEHOUSE
there’s always a line to get in. for good reason.

grab a drink before you wait for a table on the patio.

cheers to Chi-Town!

YAY for the weekend! What are y’all up to?
