Barbie Pink on Acid

I'm not usually one to describe overly bright colours as something 'on acid' but when my co-worker Natasha used it to describe my hot pink blazer, I couldn't think of a more appropriate word.

As soon as I got out of work, Patrick (le bf) and I shot my outfit--we didn't want to miss out on the natural daylight which I find is best for when shooting outdoors. After looking at the shots, I noticed the cool sun glare spots (is that what you call them?) and got super excited. Rarely do our photos turn out so artsy! But the real question is: is that good/safe for the camera? Yikes.

I'm wearing: H&M jacket and blazer, The GAP chambray shirt (similar one here), J. Crew Matchstick jeans (my fave!) and Dolce Vita ankle booties (similar one here).

As I've mentioned on a previous post, I'm going to Las Vegas this coming August to celebrate by 25th birthday. I've heard that the weather in August hovers around 40°C or 104ºF which is insane. I'm trying to think of potential outfits but my Pinterest Vacation Board is still lacking some cool pieces.

I'm looking for breathable, light-coloured, monochromatic inspiration. Something chic and flowy, not too skin-revealing or trendy. Know of any brands I should look at? For now, here's what I have in mind:

Have you been to Vegas in August? Leave me outfit inspiration/brands in the comments! x
