Little Red Romper
The Style Sauce// Genevieve Liebscher urban outfitters red romper street style Venice Beach

It's officially Summer in Venice Beach, which means it's hot and everyone is hitting the beaches. While I love Summer the most, it's sometimes hard to find things that are comfortable in the warm weather but still pulled together. What I've noticed is that I usually reach for a romper like the one I'm wearing here. I must have at least 20 rompers. They're flattering in that they accentuate the waist. They're easy because you only need to pull on the one piece and you're done- no fussing with separates! They're comfortable and will keep you cool in even the warmest of weather, especially when they're strappy and open-backed like this one is. Lastly, you can almost always dress them up or down! On the weekends, I live in a romper like this one. During the day I'll pair with a cute sandal, and by night I'll wear a heeled bootie for dinner and drinks with friends. Needless to say, rompers and Summer go together like peas and carrots. (Yes- that was Forrest Gump reference)

This particular little red number happens to also be on sale at Urban Outfitters, and an absolute steal at just $40! Pair with a pair of round sunnies and a little brown bootie and you'll be set for any Sunday Funday during warmer months.

Check this one out, and shop some of my other favorite onesies below for all of your Summer-ing by the beach.

Vegas, Baby
The Style Sauce Fashion Blog Las Vegas Caeser's Palace

OH Vegas. To be totally honest, before this trip I wasn't really the biggest fan. Maybe it's the fact I'm not a cigarette smoker, super into gambling (although I will throw a $20 on smoke just cause), or one of those people that loves club life.  Anyways, I haven't made a point to go back to the City of Sin in quite awhile.  This trip certainly changed my mind. Thanks to Yelp LA I was treated to an utterly amazing time at Caesar's Palace to celebrate their 50th Anniversary. It was hard to find moments to even Instagram and take photos given how much eating and drinking we were doing- but I'm certainly not complaining! When I say I was treated like an absolutely Queen I am not even exaggerating- Vegas rolled out the red carpet for us and really made the weekend one I will never forget. I've never actually been sad to leave Vegas until this trip. Sunday as we were departing I was like, "I wish I had one more night!" (shocking for me, seriously).

Our newly renovated room at Caesar's was clean and comfortable. Loved the pops of color.

Our first night we were treated to dinner at Carmine's which was awesome. There was so much food I had to start refusing things for fear I wouldn't be able to get up from my chair and dance later on.

 After dinner, we went to see Matt Goss perform who's an awesome Rat Pack era singer- and I LOVE that kind of music.

After Matt's long performance we went to an open bar at a cigar bar where I successfully puffed on a cigar without choking (#winning !).  After dinner AND the show AND the cigar bar we headed to see Big Sean perform at Drai's. He was awesome! Big Sean had all the jams and just so happened to be in town for the Billboard Music Awards. Dancing to the wee hours of the morning was certainly not difficult with the caliber of entertainment our first night in Vegas.

The next day was spent by the pool relaxing until it was time to get ready for dinner. Chanel at The Forum Shops hooked me up with a complimentary make-up application prior to our evening out, and made me look like an absolute goddess. I left my appointment an even bigger fan of Chanel cosmetics than I already was- my new favorite eyebrow pencil is now courtesy of them, and they may have even changed this devout Voluminous mascara user into a Le Volume De Chanel fan -their blackest, most voluminizing mascara. My color is 10. Ask the Chanel counter for a sample if you're skeptical- this stuff is the SHIT.

After our make overs we headed to Mr. Chow for dinner where we noshed on Peking Duck and sipped lychee martinis...

After dinner we were off to another show called Absinthe- (I'm telling you, we were seriously spoiled!) which was a comedic boundary-pushing burlesque show with lots of tricks. Think Howard Stern meets Cirque Du Soleil, if you can. After that everyone was pretty drunk and tired so we ended up turning in around 1 am instead of venturing to the club again.

Our last day's agenda was mellow with brunch at Serendipity and trying to spend our room credit at a bar- let's just say a few too many Macallan 18's were drunk at noon on a Sunday, which made our ride back to L.A. verrrrryyy interesting, but at least it cured the hangover ;)

For any of you thinking of planning a trip to Vegas, I highly recommend making the trip even just for a weekend of debauchery and gluttony. It was great to see a different side of Vegas and really enjoy the quality of entertainment that is to be had there- I certainly think it's the best the world has to offer. With everything imaginable at your fingertips, it's easy to be seduced by this sexy city. Huge thanks to Caesar's Palace and Yelp LA for the wonderful hospitality. Till next time Sin City, luck be a lady.

Happy Memorial Day from the East Coast! How are you spending the day? I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend with family and eating tons of ribs and macaroni salad. I just love the East Coast. Everything is so pretty and lush and green this time of year. I wore this look yesterday for a wedding in New Jersey and it was absolutely perfect for a summer wedding. The bell sleeves and length were just perfectly classy but still cute. I added a heeled sandal since it's much too hot here right now for anything closed toe. (92 degrees!) These pink sunglasses are my absolute favorite and only 11 dollars (WHATTTT!?) You can find them on Zero UV. I've been wearing them literally every day because they're fabulous. Best yet, this dress is on sale until the end of today ONLY- French Connection is having an epic Memorial Day sale on their site--- literally everything is 30% off if you use the code FC30MR.

Happy Shopping, and enjoy the rest of your holiday! I'll have the rest of my photos from this weekend up next on my travel column.
