Today’s post was inspired by Vegas.com and their #UltimateVegasOutfit challenge to put together some outfits we would wear if we were going to one of the Las Vegas Hotels.

First off, it’s not if, it’s when.

Second, we could totally do this with our eyes closed.

And third?  We really, really want to go to Vegas right now.

So let’s talk outfits – we decided to keep it simple and choose just one place to get all the outfits from: J. Crew.

J. Crew’s got the whole gamut from casual to going out at night.

Here’s what we would wear on the plane coming in from Los Angeles

Something chill, casual and makes it easy to breeze through TSA.  We also want to look good in case we meet a “special someone” on the plane.

Once we checked in to our suite at The Cosmopolitan Hotel, this would be our outfit at the pool.

(Since this is the United States, Speedo-esque trunks are frowned upon, so we decided to go with something with some vintage California flare.)

And after a day partying at the pool?  Go back to the room for a nap.

And once we wake up? Have dinner at our favorite steakhouse on the Strip, STK and go out to Omnia wearing the outfit below:
