Second time at this place and I already feel like I’m a regular. The Standard hotel in downtown LA is my new favorite after work spot! There are so many nooks and crannies in this place, it never gets boring. There are ping pong tables, pool tables, countless bars, water bed cabanas, plenty of seating areas, heating lamps, a rooftop pool, and of course the amazing views of downtown LA’s financial district. It’s about as close to that New York flavor as I can get in this city.

The #MyVegasStyle Challenge

Tootsie Pop Challenge. Check. Cinnamon Challenge. Check. It’s time to try the #MyVegasStyle challenge, posed by Vegas.com. Honestly, this is not much a challenge. I love going to Vegas and I love showing off my style. I hope to go this summer and do just that! Here’s what I would wear for:

a day at aria

the roasted bean

 Breakfast at The Roasted Bean.

After a long night, all I would want to do is throw on some comfy palazzo pants and a tank (jumpsuits and bathrooms don’t mix). In Vegas, morning is a time where casual luxe reigns. Opt for a light breakfast and a quick stroll around the property before you start getting ready for the pool. Oh, and don’t talk to me before my morning chai latte.Breakfast in Vegas

liquid pool lounge

Lounge at Liquid Pool.

The pool parties in Vegas are not like ordinary pool parties. A little less floaties, a little more vodka. Add some out of town hotties and you got yourself a p-a-r-t-y. Jewelry and self-tanners are a must. Flip flops are for tacky tourists. You want to arrive in a pair of wedge stunners. Plus those new IT bathing suits all over Instagram? Triangl Swimwear is hot hot hot! I think I might just have to bite the bullet and pay the $20 shipping from Australia.

The nightclubs in Vegas are like nothing else in America. The hottest and biggest artists and DJs all migrate to this small town on what seems like a weekly basis. Haze is known for its big hip hop scene. Three words: dress to impress. I always love to wear my favorite color. Yes, black is a color. #allblackeveryday  Add an understated body chain, ankle strap platforms, a hands-free purse (I cannot even tell you how a ‘must’ this is), and a few pieces of jewelry and you’re ready for a night out!

*Insider Tip* Bring a pair of Fast Flats to fold up in your purse. Your feet will be thanking you. Classy girls don’t walk barefoot!
