Goodbye Vegas

It's safe to say that our Vegas trip didn't exactly go as planned...
It kind of almost feels like I never went, but hey life aint fair & sometimes vacations turn to crap.

The last night we decided to see a Cirque Du Soleil show and I was SO pumped!



So, I hate to disappoint but I actually have no clue where this outfit is from...
However I've found some similar items for y'all!

Necklace: Etsy
Sandals: [similar] [similar]




It was a great way to end our trip!
Our flight was at 12:59 so we made sure to get some fun in
 before we headed off to the dreaded airport...

Hopefully our next Vegas experience will go a little more smoothly...
Until next time!

Vegas Pool Day

Saturday was finally a day where we would all be able to hang out together,
it was also Kyle and I's last day because our flight was at midnight.

All of the boys went to the casino first thing in the morning and I knew I couldn't leave
Vegas without exploring at least a little bit with Kyle!
So...I dragged him out of the hotel and we walked around!



See that roller coaster?
After a little exploring Kyle and I decided to hop right on!
Definitely not mad about it, it was so much fun!

After a little walking around we were ready to hit up the pool,
Vegas is HOT and we were both drenched in sweat.

We headed back to the hotel and got the rest of the guys and headed to the pool!









It was definitely a great way to spend the last day of our trip.
I had been craving the pool the WHOLE time I was there and was so happy to finally go to one!

I definitely didn't mind being the only girl on the trip,
It was a little refreshing to be honest.

Ohhhh Vacations....why do they always have to end?

First Official Evening in Vegas

Looking back on this outfit I totally should've worn my nude sandals...
I can barely look at these pictures without cringing...Oh well, Ya live and ya learn.









So, it was our first OFFICIAL night in Vegas...I was so pumped.
I had been by myself all day and I was SO ready to get dressed up and just do something!!


The lighting in these bathrooms was seriously amazing y'all!
Like someone please install this lighting in every room in my house, it's THE best.

I made sure to take a good amount of mirror selfies before we went out,
being the only girl you really never know when you'll be able to sucker one of the boys into taking a cute photo of you and your husband, 
and even once you do sucker them into it you really never know what the outcome will be..

Will they know to get my whole outfit? 
Will they tap the screen so it's focused?
Do they know to take 100 and not just 1?
Will they get a few candids for instagram?
The struggle was real, but we ended up getting a decent one ;)


#couplegoals ;)


After a few photos and games of black jack we headed off to a fancy dinner.


And by fancy I mean Food Court chicken tenders...


I fully intended on having a crazy, eventful and LONG night.
Patric FINALLY arrived after what seems like 10 cancelled flights.
and we were SO excited!
Except he was definitely on the jet lag struggle bus.

During the day I scored all of us some free tickets to a night club that usually cost about $40 a person.
I was so proud of myself and couldn't wait to go after some drinks and some gambling!

I was 2 long islands in and boy was I feeling good.
We had been hanging out in the casino for a while and I was READY to get the party started.



The boys were in the gambling zone so Patric and I decided to walk around a little bit.



After walking around Patric and I decided we would go get the boys and tell them
to take a break from gambling so we could go to the nightclub that I scored us tickets too!

We went to go tell them, and Patric and I headed back to mine and Kyles room to get the tickets.
We finally get up there and I take my heels off for a second to let my feet breathe....
and Patric decides he needs to charge his phone for a little while.
We agreed we would chill for 5 minutes then head back down....

Wellp, an hour later Kyle came up to the room to find me fully clothed under the covers passed out,
and Patric fully clothed on the other side of the bed outside of the covers, face down, passed out.
HAHA
Goodness talk about a mess!

Needless to say we didn't make it out to the night club...
But hey, it was still a fun night..

Stay tuned for tomorrows post on our pool day adventure!

xoxo, Monica

Vegas Day 2...

Day 2 in Vegas...

My friend Patric was supposed to arrive the night before and him and I were supposed to spend the day together exploring Vegas and hanging by the pool while the other boys golfed....

Well, his flight got cancelled and therefore I was left all alone...
His new flight was supposed to arrive around 2:30 so I had planned on enjoying the morning and doing a little shopping and then once he arrived we would go to the pool together!

 I spent most of the morning lounging around and enjoying getting to stay in bed.
Then decided to order a little room service...


After breakfast I continued lounging...

And maybe took a selfie every now and then...

an hour or 2 went by and I decided it was time to do a little exploring!

I'm not gonna lie I was a little nervous to explore this city all by myself.
As soon as I got into the hotel lobby a drunk guy grabbed my arm, spun me around,
and pulled me into him....
our faces were literally 1/2 an inch apart and for half a second I was terrified that he was going to go in for the kill.

Thank God I had the strength to pull away and give him the death stare.
He still had a hold of my arm and was mumbling some random questions,
and I just politely smiled and shook my head....
I knew he meant no harm and was just being drunk and annoying.
He asked for a kiss on the cheek and I respectfully declined {in front of all his friends} 
and went on my way...

I made it out of the hotel alive and started heading towards the strip...


Let me tell ya, I had a pretty good time even though I was by myself.
I was SO tempted to whip out my selfie stick, but I didn't have the courage to go that far haha

I walked about 15 minutes over to Planet Hollywood and did a little shopping!

Bought myself some adorable floral shoes and floral shorts at H&M,
I'm sure you'll see them soon ;)

After walking around for a while I headed back to the hotel in hope that Patric would arrive soon!


I get back to the hotel only to hear some bad news...
Patrics plane was still on the ground and maintenance was working on it. 
*fml*
I really wasn't surprised since we had already been have such crappy luck.

This meant I had a few more hours to kill a llllllll by myself....
The good news is the selfie lighting in our room was superb.
Ha! 

It was a very lonely but pretty good day in Vegas for me!
I was SO excited when the boys finally got back from golfing!

The Travel Struggle is SO real.






Top: BrandyMelville

Booties: Zara

Last Thursday Kyle and I woke up bright and early at 3AM to jump on a plane and head to Vegas!
Only, things didn't exactly go as planned....
We get to the airport, wait in a 30 minute line, only to find out we had gone to the wrong airport.
Yes, you read that right. We had 20 minutes until we were supposed to board,
and the airport we were supposed to be at was 40 minutes away. 

{Back Story}
We were heading to Vegas because the boys qualified to play in a golf tournament there.
A few of us girls all decided to tag along with them and enjoy/explore Vegas
on the days that the boys golfed.
Well, last minute all of the girls bailed on me and I was left being the ONLY one.

Kyle and I were supposed to arrive in Vegas around 6am,
We figured this would be great and give us time to explore and see the sights
before the other boys arrived and they all left to head to the golf course.

Well, needless to say we missed our first flight since going to the wrong airport.
Of course we were both super frustrated and disappointed,
the next flight we could catch didn't arrive in Vegas until around 2:30 
and the boys had a tee time at 3. So there went mine and Kyle's first day together.

I tried to shrug it off, and remember that my friend Patric would be there around the same time
and him and I could head to the pool and relax while the other boys went to the golf course....

Kyle and I are about to board the new plane and they announce that the AC isn't working and will have to wait and find a new air craft...30 minutes go by...new aircraft arrives and about 20 minutes later we finally board and are ready to lift off and head to vegas....something is wrong with the plane and maintenance comes out...40 minutes sitting on the plane....we're FINALLY ready for lift off.
By this time, I'm SO frustrated and just ready to be there.

A couple hours later and the Pilot announces we will be landing in around 15 minutes.
I was THRILLED and so ready to be off the plane.
5 minutes later...the pilot announces we've come up to some bad weather and will be circling around for the next 20 minutes until it's safe to land...
**insert dramatic hysterical angry face here**
30 minutes go by and we're still circling, at this point i'm trying not to cry...

and then the worst thing happens...
"The weather isn't clearing up so we're going to be flying to an airport in Phoenix and waiting there until it's clear..."
**NNNOOOOOOOOO**

I think y'all pretty much get the gist of how are trip there went...
We stayed in phoenix for over an hour and didnt land in vegas until around 8pm,
then we weren't allowed to get off the plane because of lightning...
we finally get off and wait for our luggage...
then find out we can't get our luggage because the people unloading it aren't allowed to do so because of lightning....

Our ENTIRE first day of vacation flew right before our eyes...
Oh, and it was the ONLY day Kyle and I would've had time together just us 2...

One of the other guys had a flight 12 hours after ours and we arrived at the airport the exact same time....

Talk about one hell of a day.


We didn't get to our hotel until about 10pm and were SO ready for bed.

Check back tomorrow to see if our trip got better...or worse...

High Neckline Obsession

Lately I've been drooling over high necklines...


and what girl doesn't love a dress that twirls?!

Necklace [similar]



This dress is seriously so casual and comfy...but also fancy in a way.
That's what i'm loving about high necklines, I feel like they instantly make your outfit a tad fancier.

And I mean, fancy is always a good thing.

I can't even begin to explain how crazy my life has been lately...
BUT it's a good kind of crazy!!!

We all decided it would be fun if we all wore white one night,
You know, like you always see in those good ol' awkward family photos.


My favorite sis n law

for those of you that were curious ;)





This trip was definitely one to remember.
So happy we were all able to go and make such awesome memories together.
Until next time Cabo....
