Travel: No Passport Required Edition

I have two trips coming up in the next few weeks, and neither requires my passport.  I've been doing more international than domestic travel for the past few years, and I'll miss the free checked bag.   It's a good thing I've been practicing lightening my packing.

First Stephen and I are headed to Las Vegas where we will see Trans Siberian Orchestra.  Stephen arranged that trip as an anniversary present in September.  He's the best.  Just a few days after we return from Vegas my mom and I will head to Portland, Oregon to celebrate Christmas with my sister and her husband.  Stephen is going to have to take care of our dogs and my mom's dog while we're gone.  He really, really is the best.

Jumpsuit for joy!
I want my Vegas wardrobe to be a little over the top because it's Las Vegas!  I haven't found the perfect sequined dress, but I have a sparkly red one in case I can't find sequins.   I'll also be wearing my awesome leopard print jumpsuit while I'm there.  (The Kirna Zabete for Target jumpsuit is now on clearance at for just $17.48.  That's a lot of leopard print goodness for a small price.)

I like the animal and polka dot
My sister already called to warn me that I need to dress for cold in Portland right now.  She needn't worry.  I don't mess around with cold.  I'm planning on bringing lots of tights, a scarf, a hat, gloves, and my eShakti trench coat.  I'm toying with the idea of packing an all-spotted wardrobe for Portland with a mix of polka dots and leopard (take that, Kelly Osborne).  We'll see how that develops.

Of course both wardrobes will include some workout wear and my beloved running shoes.  I had a dream last night that I ordered five more pairs of those shoes because I love them so much.  Seriously.  When I woke up this morning I was a little disappointed that I only have one pair.

Have you been to Las Vegas?  Have you been to Portland?  What do you recommend I pack for the trips?

  1. I have been to Vegas and you should wear a lot of sequins and animal print. Sequined animal print is also approved.

    Yay! Portland! Bring an umbrella and yes, that gorgeous trench. And boots. Basically, just be prepared for rain.


Be nice.
