Substitute blonde hair and that's me.
"I take my catsuit very seriously, meow."
and think maybe the one-piece by any name is is trend to pass on... Then, my sister thrifted me a $5 jumpsuit and I felt compelled to give it a "I'm a 40-year-old-mother-of-three" go. In fact, I thought it was the perfect piece for a special post for the My Vegas Style blog challenge.
I have never been to Vegas, not for lack of desire. Instead, I didn't realize how much time, money and freedom I had till it was too late. I love my kids. I will go one day and when I do I will check out the Aria Resort & Casino, one of Las Vegas’ premier hotel properties. The challenge was to find a look that could transition from lunch to dinner to night club, and whaddya know, a jumpsuit is just the piece for the job!

Necklace from my closet.
So, this particular jumpsuit is... A LOT of print, and chambray is just the thing to tone it down for day. I wore these sandals the other day from 8am till 11pm, first wear, and they were totally comfortable so they ought to be suitable for some walking and sight-seeing.
Leather belt $4.20 adds to a daytime casual vibe.
Did I mention this jumpsuit is strapless?! I got my strapless bra at VV too, why not?
If it gets hot, might as well go full-on Canadian tourist.
Maybe it's a bit boring, but I'm guessing women like their cardis even in Vegas.
A scarf never hurts to prevent accidental-flashing.

The pumps, metallic accessories and white blazer hopefully say "night club" vs. "trying too hard" but I don't know because I haven't been out to anywhere past 8pm besides Ikea since 2005.
Every Vegas night needs a sweet ride!
Mine happens to be a 2001 Honda Odyssey with almost 300 000km.
Not too shabby for my imaginary vacation.
IRL, I wore this jumpsuit to my Splurge Sorority last Friday night. I came down the stairs to leave and my kids asked me why I was wearing pajamas out... They got one thing right: jumpsuits are COMFORTABLE and for that reason alone, they would make a great piece to pack for a Vegas vacation. Now for the important question for all of you who have actually been to Vegas: did I pass or fail for Vegas style?
Would YOU wear a jumpsuit?!
