Road Trip To Las Vegas … What I Wore


My recent extreme penchant for 
Road Trips
had us hitting the road once again
this time  for 
Las Vegas
to meet one of my favorite bloggers

For me a great 
Road Trip 
always calls for
a great  well coordinated
Wardrobe!

Being as Vegas was the destination
I knew sequins had to be in my mix
so 
my grey sequin top
had me pulling an 
all grey palette for the trip!

  1. After the color pallet for the
  2. Road Trip Wardrobe
  3. was chosen
  4. I knew my vintage grey  cape had to make the trip as well!

Up until now 
I have used this fabulous cape 
my mother made in the 70's 
for dressier looks.


But for this road trip I decided to mix it with sportswear
and 
white jeans 
for a much more casual vibe!


 I then  gathered some other grey separates ...

like this Free People tunic slip
my Lack of Color wide brimmed felt fedora fromAustralia
a new 3/4 long zip sweatshirt from LA's Oak
some of my favorite  over sized baubles
and
a grey wool shawl
that could work with anything
or
even play on it's own!


A pair of silver slip on platforms
made for a perfect on and off  pair in the car
as well as making for a comfortable pair to
 visit the 
Las Vegas Strip!



Layering the grey shawl over the extended sweatshirt
not only added another aesthetic dimension to the look
but more importantly
added another warm layer on a brisk 
Road Trip morning!




Sans hat
the exaggerated hood made for an entirely new look
paired with my bold accessory collections!


One of my favorite and most versatile 
Road Trip 
pieces is  always a 
 Wrap!

It can be layered up or down
casual or dressy
or 
even the perfect way to protect from a chill in the car!





One of my favorite things to find traveling
is always a new hat!

We found  this one in Pioneer Town
about 30 minutes outside of Vegas.
This new
 Cowboy Hat
already has me dreaming of 
our next 
Road Trip!


Pioneer Town
was one of those finds
that make
Road Trips absolutely magical!

With lore and history
that included the saloon
Clark Gable waited in
while they recovered Carol Lombard's body
after her plane crashed tragically into a nearby mountain peak.

These days on a much lighter note
the town is a mecca for so many TV shows and films
that are continued to be shot!


And how is this for the most charming
primitive serving of a mimosa!
My favorite mimosas are always the ones I can decide the proportions!

The saloon is a must
for any Road Trip to or from Las Vegas!
It's these hidden  treasures off the beaten  road
that always have me
so excited to venture out on the road once again!




Come back and visit my blog this week
when I will be sharing 
where else we went in  Las Vegas
and 
even more exciting
I will be sharing about meeting
and 
her gorgeous daughter Jodi!


As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  3. I'm so happy to see how you and Jeff are embracing the 'empty nest' part of life. These quick weekend road trips are so much fun to see. You are definitely the Queen of traveling in style and organization. This grey color palette was a winner for this trip, that's for sure! I'm still over the top in love with your vintage, momma-made cape. Oh, and great hat purchase!

    1. Thank you my friend! I am definitely trying to embrace this "empty nest" part of life! We both know some days and weeks are easier than others … but road trips for me … are definitely balms for my soul! They remind me not only is there so much more out there in life … but also the beauty in the huge expanses of nature … that there is so much more to life … than I can see!

      Thank you for your visit my dear … and your lovely comment! Love to you! xo

  5. Love the gray and white combinations, especially with your silver shoes and beautiful beads. The scenery is fantastic too - like something in a Western movie: of course, your new hat works perfectly in that setting. Wonderful post Tamera. xx

  6. I love all your outfits for this trip! I totally fell in love with the cowboy hat. I grew up wearing them and it just struck a cord. I love your artistic photos! We will be heading to Arizona for a couple of months this winter and we go straight through Vegas so I will be taking notes from you on where to stop and smell the roses along the way! Peace! Cheryl

    1. Thank you for visiting Cheryl! How fabulous to spend a few months in Arizona! I can't wait to see your pictures … Sounds like a fabulous drive to me! I have one more little find on Route 66 that I will be sharing. It's a historic little downtown that was a gem of a find! I so agree with you about "taking the time to smell the roses along the way!". xo

    1. Thank you darling for visiting!! Vegas is about 5 hours from our house. I can understand your view of the city … but meeting Dorrie from Senior Style Bible and her daughter Jodi … made the trip there a very worthwhile adventure!

      I think I have a lead on the pearls finally! xox

  8. Stunning cape - I can't believe your mother made it. I can't wait to see photos of you and Dorrie of Senior Style Bible. She is a new favorite of mine. Also I just wanted to let you know that for some reason, I cannot access your blog directly. I keep getting a red flag message from McAfee Security that it a dangerous site to visit. That is why I will use bloglovin to view your posts.
