Hi everyone!  Long time no blog!  I know I seemed to have dropped off the face of the blogosphere but we underwent a few changes in our household that made blogging challenging.  More about that later!

It's winter in Edmonton and the weather has been all over the map with everything from 10 degrees and sunny to a snowstorm that dumped 30 cm of snow on us within 24 hours!  When the weather is like this I dream of vacationing to warmer locations and one of my favorites is Vegas! Just a short flight over a long weekend to good weather, good food, good entertainment, and good shopping!  The perfect mini vacation to recharge!

I've been looking for a way to get back into blogging and given the frigid temperatures at the time, thought that the #CosmopolitanChic challenge was a great way to start. Imagine a vacation at the Cosmopolitan Resort in Vegas.  Daydreaming about a sunny vacation isn't a bad way to spend a -30 degree day!

I have written before about my travel packing tips here.  Basics with pops of color and statement accessories are the way to go for me.  They allow me to mix and match multiple outfits with minimal pieces while still incorporating personal style and leaving room in my case to bring home my new purchases!  Pieces that can perform double duty and go from a casual daytime look to a dressy night out are a bonus! I thought that this romper was perfect for the job!

For Day... keep it simple.  Paired with casual flats (vacations mean walking) and a classic and chic Chanel Boy Bag (I love crossbody styles for travel).  Start with the short rib eggs benedict for brunch (if you wake up in time) at The Henry American.  Then head over to one of my absolute favorite stores, Allsaints, at the Shops at the Cosmopolitan for some retail therapy before visiting the hammam or Turkish steam bath at the Sahra Spa to rejuvenate and get you ready for a night on the town!

The one thing about Vegas is that there is always something going on!  You are out all day and night with minimal time to get ready in between so I love that you can completely turn the entire look around and dress this romper up!

Vegas is about glitz and glam and a little rock'n'roll for me.  So for night...amp it up with these gorgeous sky high beaded heels and add some color and edge with this to die for clutch! Some statement jewelry and you are good to go starting with a delicious dinner at Scarpetta followed by signature drinks from an award winning mixologist at Bond and then onto Marquee Nightclub to dance the night away!

Cosmopolitan Chic Night

Anyone who reads the blog will guess that blogging this fall was put aside due to the arrival of our little munchkin in early September!  Our world has been turned upside down but I hope to start blogging a little more regularly now that things are settling down somewhat!

As always thanks so much for reading!  All this daydreaming has made me want to go on a real vacation!  I wonder how the munchkin would do in Vegas?!
