Well hello.

SO I went to Vegas for a night this weekend. If you follow me on Snapchat ( I swear Snapchat is not like my sponsor, I just love it because it’s raw, real, & pretty much the shit ), then you know I had quite the excursion actually getting there.

I, eer, missed my flight.

Boy did I feel like an asshole because I’m constantly making fun of Michael’s INTENSE promptness. IN MY DEFENSE THOUGH, the TSA line was a mile long ( …I may or may not have arrived 30 minutes before my flight though ). In typical Lauryn fashion, I ended up taking the 6 PM flight instead of the originally scheduled 11 AM.

Michael was working in Vegas for a convention for a few days so I flew out for the night to meet him & our friends…AKA I just went out for a little fun.

But wait. Can we talk about Vegas style? Is it just me or is it very difficult to pick an outfit in Vegas— IS ANYONE WITH ME?

Let’s face it…it’s hard to look effortless in a tighter than tight bandage dress, like…clearly, you tried.

I hate when outfits look like I tried too hard. Especially when we’re eating full-on pasta & dessert before going out.

Highly annoying, no?

Anyway, I opted for something simpler, but also sexy: a superrrr low cut V jumpsuit. Some added touches: a very long, thin ‘boob’ necklace, stick straight hair, & extremely high pumps…because it’s Vegas, so shit, I had to add a little showgirl pizzazz to my outfit.

We ended up going to a club, which is not really my favorite thing on the planet. It’s nothing personal to anyone who likes clubs but I like to have conversations ( GRANDMA ) & you cannot hear a word with techno music blaring in your ears. I’m also not going to lie, I’m that person fully wearing tiny orange ear plugs ( carry them in your clutch, trust me ).

Maybe I’m getting too old for Las Vegas?

{ today, working off blueberry pancakes }

But a little gambling, vodka sodas with extra lemons, & the best pancakes in the world for breakfast are 100% worth the trip.

Really though, The Wynn’s pancakes ARE WORTH THE ENTIRE TRIP ACTUALLY, if we’re being honest. They’re these blueberry pancakes there that my girlfriend, Elena introduced me to at Tableau & they’re literally sex x a million. Nothing better. Especially when you’re recovering from a vodka soda/club music hangover.

What’s your Vegas experience been like? I know you guys allllll have Vegas stories. Come on, make me laugh. Ok, go ; ).

{ Michael, panicked about the airport— so amusing }

  1. I totally agree on the club thing, I much prefer talking 😉 The last time I was on my way to Vegas, we missed our flight twice and ended up only being there for a few hours…so I can’t wait to go back and experience it in full!

  2. WHY is Toronto so far from Vegas! I would kill to go for a casual weekend. I haven’t been as an adult, and I NEEEEED to go….even though I’ll only complain about the clubs and the heat. Dying for the experience! PS that jumpsuit is suuuper hot, I’m in love.

  3. Here’s a laugh! The last time I went to Vegas I was 10. 😀 My husband and I have all intentions of going back someday, but we are definitely in it more for the food and the scenery than the clubs and casinos. I feel ya on the actually wanting to talk thing! 😀

  4. Love your travel recaps! Bookmarking this one for the restaurant suggestions too.

    My guy & I are sooooo not the Vegas-type but we went together this summer for the first time and LOVED IT. Lots of pool time, long delicious dinners, a few shows, Wet Republic pool party lol had a blast! We want to make it an annual thing now.

    Also, definitely could relate to your missing your flight story….I may or may not have missed a 5:30am flight one time because I fell asleep on a chair in the airport right next to the gate. HAHAH shoot. I never heard the end of that one 🙂

  5. Look into the TSA PreCheck/SENTRI/NEXUS/Global Entry program… you skip the TSA line and there are other perks too. My whole family has it (including myself). It’s good for 5 years I think and then you just renew.

  6. Love vegas, but totally feel you on the club thing. I like Vegas because it’s like being able to go everywhere in one city, especially dining-wise. The restaurants and shopping and amazing, the spas and pools are much-needed bliss time in a crazy city, and it’s surprisingly affordable for what you get.

    1. They’re Saint Laurent. There’s no online link (or I would have linked them). I bought them in the store : ) xo
