Today I bring you fashion from my recent road trip to Vegas for my birthday! The road trip from LA is a good 4 hour drive, if you don’t stop at all…but being cramped into a car for 4 hours can sometimes be unbearable, so we had to stop a little more than half way in the middle of the desert, in Baker, CA. At this pitstop we got some snacks and drinks at the local gas station, and there was some interesting scenery. I busted out my camera and had my friend snap some photos of my outfit.
We took a lot of cool photos in front of this “Do Not Enter” sign, and in front of the “Bun Boy Motel,” but my camera was in full on manual mode and we didn’t realize there was too much light hitting the camera sensor… SO…we got some washed out photos. They came out cool, but I really wish they weren’t so over exposed! Here are just two of the photos I took that were over exposed. what do you think?
Well anyway, back to my outfit. Here are some close ups of my jewelry, top, and shoes!
Dress: Maxi, Charlotte Russe | Top: Hollister | Booties: Express | Necklace: Botswana Necklace, Minu Jewels | Bag: Forever 21
For the road trip I wanted to be comfortable, especially since I would be in the car for 4 hours (it actually took us 5-6 hours with traffic and stops). I wore a black maxi dress I bought from Charlotte Russe last year. I wanted to be more casual, so I put this floral embroidered/lace like top from Hollister. It made the outfit so much more casual than wearing the Maxi Dress by itself! I topped it off with another one of my favorite necklaces, a new piece I received from Minu Jewels, the Botswana Necklace! I am in love with the stones and the gold chain pieces that hang!
My hair was just casual and straight, half up with a clip, and minimal makeup. I just put some liquid liner on the top of my eyes, mainly because I wanted to keep my eyes ready to apply my makeup fresh for when we arrived in Vegas! We ended up going out to dinner at BurGR in Planet Hollywood, Gordon Ramsay’s burger restaurant (AMAZING!), and I wore this outfit, after touching up my makeup and redoing my hair!
What do you think about this outfit? Would you wear it for a road trip or is it more suitable for something else?
