The Master Plan

29 Apr

I love planning things.

Weddings, parties, and even especially vacations.

“Well, of course,” you say. “Everyone plans their own vacations.”

Um, yeah. Not as much as I do.

See, for the last week, I have been kind of freaking out because I haven’t completely planned my entire wardrobe for next week’s trip to Vegas. But don’t get me wrong, I’ve planned plenty…

I know I'm crazy...

That’s right. That’s my Excel spreadsheet of the clothes I am planning to wear on vacation.

Just so you know how super crazy I am, the spreadsheet not only includes a general packing list, which luggage I’ll be taking with me and each day’s outfits, it outlines exactly what we’re doing each day and the three, oh yeah, THREE outfits I need each day. Not including pajamas.

Over-thinking things just a bit? Yeah, I’d say so.

But because I’m totally obsessed with it, I’ve decided to use the blog to chronicle what I plan on wearing each day (or at least the super cute outfits I’ll be wearing, because who really cares about the stupid pool outfits).

So the first day I’ve themed as a “Legally Blonde goes to Vegas” travel day. For some reason, I really like dressing up to go on a short plane trip. Somehow, it just makes me feel more special to walk through the airport sporting a super fab outfit.

Like, fer shur.

The second night we’re in town, we’ll be hitting the clubs. We’re having a special night in honor of the Bachelorette where each girl wears a little animal print. This is the outfit that has been giving me a special kind of ulcer. I originally got a zebra print tank top, but realized that it was just too plain and I am an Epic Fail when it comes to accessorizing. Needless to say, if anyone here in the Hive has any suggestions, I am more than open to them!


My Bad Kitty Accessories

Despite the hours (seriously, people, HOURS) of searching for something to wear, I’ve finally decided on this:

Rawr, baby. Rawr.

I know I still need some accessories…maybe a big chunky black necklace? Or big gold hoops and a long, hoopie gold necklace? And then do I wear the black accessories or these?

Black or Gold? That is the question, Shakespeare. Geesh.

The final evening will be the cutest with the help of Sissy’s personal styling (well, the cute plaid dress is hers, too!). I borrowed this dress from her and then ended up finding it (on sale, SCORE!) and buying one for myself, too! Isn’t it so cute?

This dress makes me drool.

There you have it. My way over-thought wardrobe for Vegas. Factoring in the casual outfits for mid-day, pool outfits, purses to match each outfit and the normal day-to-day supplies, I’m pretty sure I’ll need some help getting through the airport…

Did I mention that I’ll only be there for 4 days?

PS: This post was WAY too much fun to create. Sigh. I need help.

    You’re like Victoria Beckham, only you smile. I love the stuff and I want to reach right through the computer screen and steal that red top.

    My daughter wears animals prints (she has zebra and leopard print outfits and accessories), but I have no experience with them on adults, so I can’t offer much advice. The only thing I would say is don’t overdo it. Glamour Magazine show people in the “Don’t” section all the time that have over-animalized.

    Um, you totally forgot to mention the entire white/black dress outfit is mine, plaid dress, gold purse…. Man alive, give a girl some credit :)

    You are so my people. I love when I find others with OCD like myself ;)

    Oh, and those black heels in the last photo are to DIE for!
