Viva Las Vegas!

After our 5 days in California we headed for the 2nd half of our vacation in Las Vegas, Nevada. My husband was officially there for an international real estate conference and I was there "unofficially" for some shopping and relaxing, as well as, spending some one on one time with the love of my life :)  Mission accomplished - for both of us!  Plus we fit in some really great sight seeing, incredible meals and some fun with friends that we met up with while in Vegas. 
It was a total of 10 days away from was the longest time we had left all 4 kids behind, but it was a recharge that was very appreciated. I love that after 20 years together Derek and I both still enjoy being together as much as we do :)  

I tried to make sure to document my OOTD each day for my blog (and my lovely readers!). I am also fitting in a few shots of some fun things we enjoyed while there. 
So here you go:

The top is new - just picked it up in Beverly Hills at Kyle Richard's store, "Kyle by Alene Too" along with a few other great pieces I was happy to make room for in my suitcase!  I was anxious to check out the store and it was really great. Loved many of the styles and brands she carries and the women/girls working there were super sweethearts!~
