This dress immediately made me think of Amelia Earhart, despite most likely not being her style (ha!). It's covered in schematic drawings of prop planes, helicopters and fighter jets. I loved how "all American" it felt so I added a red belt and a white polka dot cardigan. The fit and cut of this dress is so incredibly flattering! I bought it one size up (XL) from my regular size, but it really does fit more like a L instead. Just a heads up incase you decide to buy it! It could be my growing midsection, who knows! But I'm hoping the waist sits high enough that I can continue to wear it throughout my pregnancy. It's the perfect length for Spring and Summer strolling. I'd highly recommend it to everyone. No joke. It's probably one of my favorite dresses of the moment.


The weather has been pretty amazing in Vegas so far! With highs in the mid-70s, I'm not sure I'm ready to go back to the gloom of Tennessee! I definitely miss my boys (and my Bump Nest pillow! haha) but it's been so fun to meet new people and enjoy a nice little trip away from home. I definitely promise to fill y'all in on all of the WWDMAGIC and Vegas happenings though! I figure it's better to do dedicated posts rather than litter each one of my outfit posts with anecdotes and happenings. Plus if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you're already getting a hefty dose of the goings on! (Sorry if it's overkilL! We have a set number of shares we have to do each day/hour, and it's definitely higher than my normal volume! Regular posting will resume after the trip! haha)

Some of you may already know this, but I'm obsessed with Cirque Du Soleil. I own the Anniversary collection on DVD but I've only had the pleasure of seeing one show in person (Saltimbanco in 2009!) I really wanted to see a show while I was in Vegas last August but my schedule simply didn't allow. Since I don't plan on spending as much time in the casinos or at Happy Hour this time around, I'm considering splurging on a show! I've always wanted to see "O," but I've heard great things about "Love" and "Zumanity." Each one is so unique and different, and I know they'd all impress! Have y'all seen any of their shows in Vegas before? Which one(s) do you recommend?! I keep talking myself out of it because the ticket prices are so high but then I remember just how magical it was to witness it in person. Everything about Cirque is totally insane and I love it!

Now I'm off to Day Two of MAGIC! I'll be sitting in on some panels today and hopefully seeing what the rest of the floor has to offer. Wish me luck! xo

  1. Cirque de Soleil did a movie FOREVER ago - called Alegria, I think. It used to play on the movie channel my parents had CONSTANTLY and I would always try to catch it. The story wasn't much but the story was never the point, obviously; the music was absolutely gorgeous and they showed SO MUCH of the act that the performers do. I've wanted to see Cirque de Soleil in person ever since, but... no luck :(

    Yeeeeah, I'm not sure you're excited enough about Vegas ;) I could definitely stand to see some more enthusiastic instagram posts, there just aren't enough yet! Come on! (I keed, I keed).

  2. The key to seeing any show in Vegas is going to the box office the day of the show, close to showtime. You can get the best deals that way! I got VIP for a popular Vegas Drag show for $35 (regularly $95) when I decided to go last minute.
    The first time I went to Vegas I begged to go see Love. We got discounted tickets to that show as well when we spoke to the box office the day of the show and asked them if they had any deals/affordable tickets for us to work with our budget. If you decide to see Love I also suggest sitting mid to upper sections! There's a portion of the show where the lower half of the audience is covered up and you miss a lot of the amazing aerialists! The show does not disappoint!! Have fun!!!

  3. I would love to see a Cirque Du Soleil show so bad. You have to go see one while you're there and recount it! I hope you're having fun in Vegas.

    I am so excited for you and your extending family. Theodore was totally unplanned and I kind of struggled to come to terms with it all (oh, all the things I haven't done! All the travel! Did I want kids so soon?). I'm sure Toby has you totally trained and I bet he's really excited. I hope you can find some fun, comfy maternity wears and that most of your dresses will be able to do double-duty. My biggest problem right now is finding nursing friendly dresses! Not fun!

  5. I've seen both "Mystere" and "LOVE" Cirque du Soleil in Vegas, and I've gotta admit that Mystere (the original Vegas Cirque) was my favorite. Just so impressive, and true to CDS's original kind of show. "O" is high on my list, I heard it's amazing, but I was able to snag good deals for Mystere and I'm so glad I did!

  8. That dress is amazing! The airplanes are too good! I also love that cardigan. I just did a post with my navy blue with white polka dot version. Glad to hear you're having fun in Vegas, but I'm sorry you missed Cirque du Soleil. I've never been myself, but I've heard nothing but amazing things!

  11. Love the dress! And the red, white, and blue combo :)

    I saw Zumanity a couple of years ago when I was in Vegas for my birthday. I had been hoping to see Love but we got a deal on Zumanity and I definitely wasn't disappointed. It's a little racier than the others but we all loved it. Definitely recommend!

  12. Really digging that dress! My boyf loooooves airplanes (well, he WAS in the air force, so I guess that's a good excuse to love planes), so I bet he would love this (.... on me, that is).

    Glad you're enjoying your time at MAGIC! I loved your round-up posts about them last year, so I'm really looking forward to them this year as well!

  15. A friend of mine went to The Beatles cirque de soleil (maybe that's Love?) and said it was phenomenal. She brought me back goodies and I still drink out of my Beatles tumbler to this day! It's actually right in front of me, ha.

    I'm a huge (that's an understatement) Beatles fanatic.

  17. "O" is SO worth the splurge!

  18. I was able to see Zumanity in Vegas twice and was so impressed both times, I would definitely recommend it, it is definitely a little more "adult" but has a wonderful mix of humor, burlesque, and cirque.

  20. Speaking of your dress, I bet Toby would love to watch Night at the Museum II. It's really good!

  21. I just went to Vegas this last month and saw Zarkana. I would definitely recommend it (Though I haven't seen any of the other Circe du Soleil shows).

    I will say this - a friend of mine told me to make sure you get seats close up - otherwise you won't be able to really catch any of the details. She unfortunately made that mistake when she went to see Ka. Thankfully, we were only 8 rows back during Zarkana so I could see every last detail (including the trembling limbs of the performers)!

    As for ticket prices - I would definitely hunt around before you go to Vegas. We got our Zarkana tickets for $110 and they were selling them at Tix4Tonite for $145, and they were regularly $175. You can get great deals if you're willing to put in the effort to hunt for them! We also found tickets for Mystere for around $60, but it wasn't for the days we were there so we had to pass.

  22. I went to Vegas last month as saw Zarkana - it was my first Circe du Soleil show so I can't really compare it to the others. However, I will say this - a friend of mine told me to get seats close up. She sat further away when she went to see Ka, and was really disappointed because she said it was difficult to see any details. When I saw Zarkana, we were only 8 rows back and I could see every single detail of the performance - including the performer's limbs trembling! It was amazing.

    As for prices - if you're willing to search you can find some great deals! We purchased our tickets before we went to Vegas and got our Zarkana tickets for $110. The day of the show, they were priced at Tix4Tonight at $145, and they were normally priced around $170. We also found Mystere tickets for $60, but it wasn't during our stay.
