This past weekend Jennifer and I drove to Las Vegas for the weekend to see the queen, Mariah Carey! My inner fourth grader two high schooler was screaming with excitement – this was the third time I’ve seen her perform, and the last time Jen was by my side too! I have a great post about it coming up this Friday.

I wore this lightweight lilac dress the next day for shopping and eating.


As the weather heats up and there are loose tank tops and strappy dresses, I bought this strappy back bralette in white and black to accommodate my summer wardrobe.

I love this lilac dress, it’s so airy and flowy, I can’t wait to wear it again. Swimoutlet.com has a lot of adorable swimsuits, coverups and pretty dresses offered at discount prices – take a peek if you’re looking for vacation pieces or summer wardrobe essentials in general.


The lobby of Delano Las Vegas is so pretty, there are two large rocks you walk between, with a dramatic stone wall and the most beautiful light passes through – I’d shoot here often if I could.

      Thanks Carissa! I like wearing purple (and shades of it), but you won’t see purple objects that I own, pretty funny :)

    Love it! It looks really pretty on you. I love the splits on the sides, very convenient! :) Talking about Mariah Carey, I’ve been listening to her oldies lately. I really loved her first album… it’s amazing how much she’s changed. On her first videos she looks so beautiful and pure and conservative… it’s pretty sad to see your favorite artists turn into something different. :-/

      I was introduced to her via cassette tape I think! Emotions was my first album I got of hers. I saw her 10 years ago and she had more flashy websites but for this show, she’s back to being covered and classy :) I think you’d like it, if you still like her! We just bought tickets for her February show, there’s a chance I might be able to touch her or at least be less than 5 feet away from her, eeeeeee!!!!
