Photo Diaries | Highlights from Vegas

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset I had a great time in Vegas: good food, good weather, and good shops. Rather than divide my trip by day similar to the Austin City Limits photo diaries, I divided some of my favorite shots into categories:

  1. Fashion + Shopping
  2. Food
  3. Sightseeing
  4. Night Shots

Between my phone and my camera, I ended up taking 200+ pictures. To show a little glimpse into the relaxing trip, I’m sharing some of my favorite shots from each category. This probably goes without saying, but this post is picture heavy.

The Shops

Last time I was in Vegas, I hadn’t realized practically every hotel has a mall or decent sized shopping center. We toured nearly every hotel on the strip and were amazed at how the shops seemed to never end.

Fell in love with this Chloe bag at first sight. The sales associate told me all the style bloggers love it lol.

Something about this storefront caught my eye.

Seeing Quay Australia in stores was so convenient! You saw which pair I picked up in the latest Vegas haul.

As seen on Instagram – my aesthetic.

This store was styled so beautifully.

The Food

I didn’t take nearly enough pictures of all the food we ate, but I posted my fair share on Snapchat. Of all the restaurants we tried, Mon Ami Gabi was my favorite. It’s a cute little French breakfast place inside the Paris hotel that has outdoor seating along the strip. Sitting outside and people watching while eating waffles made me never want to eat indoors again.

I didn’t get to eat here, but this sign is beautiful.

I tried once again to love macaroons, and failed. They’re pretty, though.

I ordered a simple hot dog at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant and got this fancy feast.

The View

I stayed at the Signature at MGM in a beautiful condo with a corner view. Much like the food changing my standards with restaurants, this hotel changed my standards with rooms. Our room basically felt like I was in an apartment, equipped with a full kitchen and everything. It was hard to get a good shot of the room, but I was able to take a quick snapshot of a portion of our balcony view.

This sign was incredibly hard to shoot on my DSLR because of the sun.

The street view I had while eating at Mon Ami Gabi.

Because you can’t go to Vegas and not stop by the water show one or two times.

One of many shopping areas I visited.

Seeing mountains in the distance was a welcome change.

Inside the Grand Canale Shoppes was a little taste of Italy.

The Night Life

I am by no means a night photographer, but Vegas was too alive to walk away without a few shots of the strip.

Vegas is beautiful from sun up to sun down.

This was part of the beautiful balcony night view.

All in all, I loved Vegas just as much as I did the first time around.
