A Day in Vegas

Las Vegas - the epitome of indulgence in a city that never sleeps. There is no better place on the planet to see the world in literally just one day, visiting the gondoliers at the Venetian before lunch and dining on French pastries in Paris for dessert. Las Vegas is iconic, the real life representation of our glamorous dreams and a city that boasts world renowned shows, lavish accommodations and Michelin-rated restaurants at your doorstep. 

It is for these reasons, and many more, that I was more than excited to be able to plan out a day of outfits for my perfect day in Las Vegas. To find inspiration for these outfits, I chose a Las Vegas resort and let the glamorous restaurants, nightclubs and venues shape my outfit choices. Below, I've put together three looks that would take me from shopping at Via Bellagio to dinner at the chef's table of Jöel Robuchon. These looks seamlessly transition from night to day and would keep me looking chic and fab throughout every moment in between!

#MyCalgary | ReggaeFest

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending my first ever ReggaeFest here in Calgary. As a past resident of Toronto, Ontario and avid Caribana attendee, I was more than thrilled to find a festival in my new city that celebrated the Caribbean culture. I came into the event with pretty high expectations of Caribana-like atmospheres and I was not at all disappointed! Even on a slightly chilly, overcast afternoon, it was still impossible to overlook the genuine energy and vibrancy that came along with the festival. 

Like proud, age old Calgarians, all the attendees simply pulled out their umbrellas and extra coats that we all carry around in the back seat of our cars (due to the fact that Calgary weather can sometimes walk the thin line between temperamental and puzzling) and enjoyed the festivities nonetheless. I was transported straight to the islands, greeted warmly be all around me and felt a sense of community as we all jived together to the sweet performances that were part of the festival’s line up.

I know it is only the middle of August, but it's time we start talking about the F word - fall. Summer has been so good to us, but the days are getting a little shorter and the wind is just a little bit too cool. It's time to say hello to trench coats, scarves and touches of leather and brace for falling leaves and pumpkin pie.
