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.

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.

Happy Thursday, glitter girls!

We don’t think of ourselves as particularly sporty, but we’re really feeling utility vests right now. This versatile piece can skew casual, dressy, dressy-casual…you name it. Here are our three favorite ways to rock a utility vest.

1. Weekday Casual. Obviously, a utility vest looks great with a cute, simple ensemble.

Casual Vest Look
Lauren at Stylized Existence paired her vest with an orange blouse, fur collar and boyfriend skinnies.

2. Sophisticated Casual. Add feminine accessories to create a more uptown look.

Sophisticated Casual Vest Look
add a belt, statement jewelry and lady-like wedges.

3. Cocktail Casual. You can also wear a utility vest in a more unexpected way. Here’s one of our favorite bloggers, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, pairing a vest with dressier pieces:

Dressy Vest Look
perfect for drinks with the girls.

L is going to pair this olive vest from Shop Social Dish with bright pink lace shorts, a chambray button-down, and ankle boots. How would you wear it?

DISH Vest Look
do it the Dish way: vest + chambray shirt + statement necklace + lace shorts + ankle boots
