Parque de la Independencia

Last week I had shared a photo gallery of my home state of Wisconsin. So, it’s only fair that I share my current home of Rosario, Argentina in photos too! I’ve done 2 other posts featuring photo galleries of Rosario, so for this one, I tried to find different spots in the city that were not shown in those posts. Most of these photos are mainly in the area of Parque de la Independencia. I had shown this area in… Read more »

Rosario

Hola, amigos! Hoy estoy hablando de Rosario! Hopefully, I wrote that grammatically correct in Spanish, haha. I know quite a lot of words in Spanish, now, but I have some work to do in the grammar department. But anyways, as promised, today I’ll be talking about/showing photos of Rosario. I had many requests for photos of architecture, which I was more than happy to oblige. I also thought it would be fun to share some of the things I’ve learned… Read more »

Rosario, Argentina at sunset

We made it! It was one heck of a journey from Sydney to Queenstown, NZ to Rotorua, NZ to Auckland, NZ and then Buenos Aires, but we’re finally moved into our new place in Rosario. I just wanted to give a little update on how everything went, as I’ve been getting some questions that I haven’t had a chance to respond to. (It’s been a bit crazy + we JUST got the internet in our place.) And I’ll start posting… Read more »

Mate gourd and bombilla

Seeing someone drinking mate for the first time can be particularly confusing for someone not from Argentina or the surrounding area. To get the obvious out of the way, it can bear a striking resemblance to a far less legal substance. But, mate is a tea-like beverage (not drug-related beyond caffeine)! However, it’s not something you simply prepare by heating up some water and dropping a tea bag into a cup. Oh, no, there’s a whole process and social code… Read more »

VIPMEshop cardigan & Judy Blue Jeans

Click to shop: Floral prints work great no matter what time of year it is, in my opinion. However, we always tend to gravitate toward them a bit more during spring. (Insert Devil Wears Prada quote: “Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking.”) But, hey…Why not match our surroundings? Spring has sprung in Argentina, and much to my allergies dismay, everything is blooming! It is really beautiful, though. (Flower pics at the end of the post!) So, I decided to break out my… Read more »

30 + hours of travel outfit

Yes, you read that right… a travel outfit for 30+ hours of travel! My current journey between Rosario, Argentina (where I live), and Appleton, Wisconsin (where my family lives) takes roughly 30 hours. Some days it’s a little less and some days it can be even more. I’ll spare you the gory details of it all, but let’s just say there is not a direct path between those two locations and there’s lots of driving and flying and several layovers,… Read more »

FashionMia lace bodycon dress

Woah, would you look at that. Two posts featuring bodycon dresses in one week! Craziness, haha. These are certainly dresses that are out of the ordinary for this blog! But, the lovely folks over at FashionMia had sent me this fun bodycon dress right after I posted Monday’s post. So, here we are, two bodycons in one week! I even went ahead and shot a video of this dress (at the end of the post), so you could see it… Read more »

modcloth map skirt

Click to shop: While I do my best to wear all the items in my wardrobe, there are few pieces I always find myself reaching for in the morning. This fun skirt and lovely top are two of those items. They’re both incredibly easy to mix and match. I also love wearing them in hot weather (but it’s easy enough to pair them with a cardigan for chillier weather). As you might have noticed too, these photos weren’t taken in… Read more »

VIPme dress

I did it… I finally shot an outfit post out and about in Rosario, Argentina! And I even put together a tiny little video too, showing off the twirl-ability of this VIPme dress, at the end of the post. This weekend had been wonderfully lazy and relaxing, which was exactly what my hubby and I needed after all the traveling and moving. We took these photos yesterday on a little stroll to get coffee (I really love getting coffee in… Read more »

We're moving!

Yep, you read that title right. We are moving all the way across the world yet again! Don’t worry, we’re just as surprised as you. We really thought we were going to be calling Australia home for much longer than 6 months. But hey, no complaints here! We’re all for new adventures. We actually just squared away the last of the details yesterday, so now I can say with certainty we are moving to Rosario, Argentina on April 8th! It’s… Read more »

Hello! I’m Lindsey, a 28-year-old blogger/personal stylist with a love for travel, quirky clothes, bulldogs, black coffee, Jane Austen, running, Star Wars (the original trilogy, not those darn prequels!) and Game of Thrones. A few years ago my husband and I gave up everything we owned in the pursuit of travel (except some clothes, of course). We have been moving all over the country and world, experiencing as much as we possibly can. We’re currently living in Rosario, Argentina and are… Read more »

Shein floral maxi dress for fall

Click to shop: Styling a floral maxi dress for fall is much easier than it sounds. Actually, styling any dress for cooler weather is possible. The key is adding layers. Whether it be a cardigan and tights or jean jacket and scarf, it all comes down to layers! And I know, I know, it’s not fall in Argentina, but just let me pretend. Haha. It kills me that there aren’t any changing leaves or pumpkins in October! But we did… Read more »

Floral dress & pink cardigan

Click to shop: I officially no longer know what season it is here. The calendar tells me it’s winter, and I was wearing boots, scarves, mittens and a winter coat last weekend…but this weekend we had weather that hit 80 degrees Fahrenheit! This left me scratching my head over how I should dress, as I had only unpacked my warm clothes since we arrived in Argentina. However, sifting through my summer wardrobe I was excited to pull out this dress!… Read more »

Tatyana Fan Skirt

Click to shop: A few months ago I had lamented my pain at being separated from this fan skirt while it made its way from our apartment in Australia to our new apartment in Argentina. It took quite awhile, but it did make it! And I was very excited to have the chance to style it again so soon. I usually wait a little longer before featuring the same skirts and dresses, but I had a really fun reason to… Read more »

ModCloth Stylish Surprise

Click to shop: I have been patiently waiting for a blustery, frigid day to break out this darling midi skirt. Doesn’t that sound ridiculous? Actually looking forward to cold weather to test out a skirt? Ah well, what can I say, I do like the seasons. (Despite my complaints.) This skirt was one I had received in ModCloth’s last Stylish Surprise event. I’ve personally had some amazing luck in the apparel department for the Stylish Surprise. If you haven’t heard… Read more »

Jump From Paper Cheese Bag

  Quirky handbags are a great way to add interest to any outfit, and they’re certainly wonderful conversation starters! It’s no secret I’m a big fan of quirky handbags, the majority of my outfit posts feature some weird bag or another. So, I thought it would be fun to share some of the ones I’m drooling over right now! Admittedly, this title might be a bit too bold of a statement. I’m sure there might be some even more quirky… Read more »

Navy Blue Bird Print Spaghetti Strap Midi Dress

Similar dress available here: I know, I know, everyone is excited for summer and breaking out their best sundresses and prettiest pastels and planning what to take to the beach. However, all my complaining about missing out on fall 7 months ago has finally caught up with me. Fall has arrived here in Argentina (or at least it did this past weekend)! And I must say, this cold weather is for the birds! It was a chilly, blustery afternoon when… Read more »

ModCloth blouse

Oofta! This past month has certainly been an interesting one. Our move to Argentina has proved to be our most challenging one yet. Not that that is a bad thing. It just means there are new things to learn and adapt to. We’ve also traveled to a total of 3 continents in less than a month, haha. And, unfortunately, while I’m learning and adapting and traveling, creating brand spanking new blog material in Argentina has not been happening as quickly… Read more »
