Tokyo SkyTree

Shop the look: Boho chic is not my go-to style of choice. Not because I don’t like it, I just don’t happen to own too many pieces that would fall into this category. But gosh, it is a comfy style that I really need to start incorporating into my daily wardrobe more often! My shawl I’m wearing was surprisingly comfortable for an incredibly warm day of walking around Asakusa (a fun district in Tokyo). It was a good way to… Read more »

Retro polka dot midi dress

Shop the look (similar items): There is just no such thing as too many polka dot dresses! I’ll always have a soft spot for floral prints, but there’s nothing like a polka dot print to really make me swoon. And if the polka dot dress happens to be midi length…I just can’t resist! (And unfortunately, this exact dress isn’t available anymore, but I’ve linked to several similar dresses above…that I also wouldn’t mind having in my closet!) This is a… Read more »

Makemechic The Starry Night midi skirt

Shop the look: Holy smokes did this upcoming blogiversary sneak up on me! I can’t believe it’s been almost two full years since the start of Have Clothes, Will Travel. It doesn’t feel too long ago since I celebrated my one year anniversary…but my oh my, it feels like eons since I first started this little blog! And my blogiversary is August 15th… I’ll be doing a few fun posts leading up to it, including one dedicated to the best… Read more »

Closet London Dress

Shop the look: Pockets, floral print, comfortable, fit & flare, versatile…these are the words I would use to describe the perfect dress (for me, at least). So, it’s no wonder this little number from Closet London gets more use than any other dress in my wardrobe! (Sorry, the streak of experimenting with new styles was just broken…but don’t worry! I have more new styles coming up!) Closet London‘s skater dresses (a.k.a. ModCloth’s Luck be a Lady dresses) are my absolute… Read more »

Chic lover boho lace dress

Look at that! Two outfit posts in a row where I am wearing a dress outside the norm for me! This lacy, boho dress from ChicLover is unlike anything I’ve worn before. I feel as though I am not doing it justice in this urban setting, though. It deserves a pretty field or woods to be worn and photographed in. (Wisconsin would’ve been the perfect backdrop!) I also wish I would’ve had this dress for my trip to New Orleans… Read more »

Devil plus dress

“Curve-hugging” and “mini dress” are usually two descriptions that send me running for safety when I’m clothes shopping! I am just not comfortable wearing that type of dress…and I am not really a fan of having every, ah, “curve” on my body displayed. I’m not hating on my body here (or this type of dress), but fit and flare dresses are my go-to…and generally what I feel to be the most “me.” However, every once in a while, I just… Read more »

Summer outfit - ice cream purse

Shop the look: Fit and flare dress, sandals, sunglasses, novelty purse, umbrella…this is what I generally have had on every single day this summer. This “uniform” walks a fine line between casual and dressy…but above all, I feel comfortable wearing this type of outfit. Which is really important when it’s hotter than the depths of hell, and I have a lot of exploring to do! I’ve already been over my love of fit and flare dresses and Salt Water Sandals… Read more »

Kimono

I’ve always wanted to try wearing a kimono and was very excited to have the opportunity to wear one when we were in Kyoto. I felt like a real-life princess wearing it! I’m not going to lie, though, I don’t think wearing a kimono on a regular basis is something I would want to do. It wasn’t the most comfortable garment in the world (mainly because the obi was pretty tight around my midsection, I’ll blame that on all the… Read more »

Shein black dress

Baseball is America’s favorite pastime…but I think it just might be Japan’s favorite pastime too! I went to my first Japanese baseball game yesterday, and it was unlike anything I had experienced at home. The level of excitement and fan participation was incredible! The only sporting event I’ve experienced that has even come close to this was a Badger Game on Halloween. (A reference for my fellow Wisconsinites, sorry everyone else!). However, I’ll talk about the cheering and my deep… Read more »

ModCloth Stylish Surprise Dress

Shop the look: One day I’m planning what to wear to hang out with Geisha, and the next it’s what to wear to monkey around with monkeys on the side of a mountain. Haha. Needless to say, we had quite the jampacked weekend in Kyoto! The first couple photos of me are on Bamboo Forest Street, and the rest are at Monkey Park Iwatayama. The monkey park was so fun! All the monkeys are wild, and one of the monkeys… Read more »

makemechic midi skirt

Planning an outfit for a night out with a geisha is something I never thought in a million years I would have to think about. The only way you can even spend an evening with a geisha is if you know someone who knows the geisha and they introduce you. (And I know a total of zero people who are friends with a geisha.) However, I did a little digging and found a way to get around that this weekend… Read more »

ueno zoo panda entrance

Shop the look:   Going to see incredibly adorable pandas calls for wearing panda-themed clothing! Haha. We visited the Ueno Zoo here in Tokyo, which is home to two cute pandas named Shin Shin and Ri Ri. I just couldn’t be living this close to pandas without seeing them at least once! But I’m going to make you guys wait until tomorrow’s post to see the actual pandas. (Plus a whole bunch of other incredible animals). For today, we’ll just… Read more »

Shein crop top

Shop the look: I have been working up the courage to wear a crop top for years now…and I’ve finally taken the plunge! But thanks to my lovely high-waisted shorts and midi skirt collection that I’ve been adding to over the years… I don’t actually have to show skin unless I want to. As you can see with this outfit, I’m not really showing my midriff, unless I’m reaching for something. (I did have a little skin showing when I… Read more »

Marvel outfit

Shop the look:   Harajuku is one spot in Tokyo that was pretty much a requirement to check out, as everyone who has been to Tokyo had told me to go. Even the person who cut my hair last week in Tokyo told me to go see it (more on that adventure a different day)! I knew Harajuku is all about nonconventional fashion and fun street style. So, I figured this would be a good time for me to break… Read more »

ModCloth Marine Bio Skirt

Shop the look:   I do confess, I wear this skirt entirely too much. It was one that I should never have bought because I really don’t need any more skirts. (I talked about that at length in this post.) But fortunately, I have been getting an absolute ton of use out of it. It’s become my new favorite exploring skirt…because it’s just dressy enough to make me feel cute, but it’s casual enough I can get away with wearing… Read more »

bridesmaid dress

Shop the look: I had the honor of standing up in my lovely cousin, Mandie’s wedding just before we left for Japan! It was such a beautiful ceremony. And it’s funny, the local weather had predicted a 90 percent chance of rain for her big day…but as you can see from the photos, they couldn’t have asked for better weather! Mandie is a lover of tulle and sparkly shoes…it’s like we’re related or something. Haha. So, our bridesmaid dresses were… Read more »

Tokyo outfit post

Shop the look:   You probably can’t tell by these photos, but I swear I’m in Tokyo. Haha. This little alley is right next to my apartment and was the first quiet place I had noticed when looking for spots to take photos. I have since found a whole bunch of out-of-this-world beautiful locations to take photos. So, I swear, from here on out…my backgrounds will do Tokyo some justice. I had also promised to talk a little about what… Read more »

Map of the world skirt ModCloth

Shop the look:   I have been waiting to wear this outfit for around 4 months. I had bought this map skirt thinking it would be fun to wear once our visas for Australia were approved. I even paid a few dollars extra for shipping on the skirt…just in case our visas were approved quickly. As we now know, that was not the case…but last week, I was finally able to break this outfit out! (You can click here to… Read more »

GlassesShop Eyeglasses

I’m wearing glasses for the first time in my outfit post history! Haha. And yes, they are prescription…I’m actually very nearsighted. I usually wear contacts and only wear glasses when I first wake up and just before I go to bed. This is mainly because the glasses that I had were from when I first found out I needed them way back in 7th grade! So, they are tiny frames and no longer the right prescription (my eyesight continues to… Read more »

Shein blue polka dot dress

I have been on quite the polka dot kick lately. (Ok, I am always on a polka dot kick!) I think I’ve worn polka dots in every outfit post I’ve done for the past three weeks. Haha. I broke this polka dot dress from Shein out this weekend when I visited our local zoo! The NEW Zoo in Suamico is awesome for so many reasons. I’ll do a separate post featuring it tomorrow, so, I don’t have too many things… Read more »

Yuna Yang polka dot see-through coat

The older I get, the more I find myself in search of pieces that will set me apart from the rest of the pack. My earlier years were a struggle of wanting to blend in, but also express myself through my style. Now, I feel I have finally found my confidence to rock whatever clothing item I fancy. It wasn’t something that happened overnight. I wouldn’t even say it was something that happened when I started this blog. It took… Read more »

I’m trying something a little different today, instead of a whole new outfit post… I’m taking a look at how I styled one of my favorite skirts, 4 different ways. I actually re-use my dresses and skirts pretty frequently on my blog, but I’ve always tried to not call too much attention to it. For some reason, it made me feel like a “bad blogger” to not have a brand-spanking new outfit each time I post. But it’s just crazy… Read more »

Yuna Yang Floral Print Button-up dress

Polka dots, lace and floral prints…these are a few of my favorite things. And this dress, from designer Yuna Yang, embodies all of these things without being too over-the-top. It is beautiful, feminine and oh so perfect for this time of year! Needless to say, I was incredibly excited when I was asked to collaborate with Yuna Yang… as her designs have been rocking the NYFW runways for 11 years. They are timeless and classy and (my personal favorite) they… Read more »

Lilee Fashion dress

Shop the look:   The first words that come to my mind when describing this dress are always “fun & flirty.” If this dress was a person, it would be the kind that has mastered the hair flip and eyelash batting, haha. It is one of my favorites to wear for a date night (which I did in this post in January), but it’s also versatile enough to wear to Mother’s Day brunch (which I did just wear it for)… Read more »

Casual maxi skirt outfit

Shop the look:   Happy Friday! We made it through the week! And in honor of this lovely day, I’m sharing a casual and comfy Friday look. Ok, technically I think I had worn this outfit on a Wednesday…it was the last day of our trip in New Orleans, and I wanted a comfy look for wandering around in the morning and then flying home that afternoon/night. And this outfit was SO comfy for our plane ride. However, this top… Read more »

Lilee Fashion dress

Don’t worry – this dress is not actually see-through, haha. It’s honestly one of the least sheer, light-colored dresses that I own. There’s a nude slip under it (and even a tank-top as well)! I know some of these photos made that a bit hard to tell, though. (And my husband said it’s quite the optical illusion in-person too, haha.) With that being said, however, I am really coming around to the whole white, sundress thing! And I couldn’t have… Read more »

Team Bucky Civil War Outfit

Shop the look:   If you’re new to my blog you probably haven’t had the opportunity to hear about my love of Marvel or The Winter Soldier. I won’t get into too much right now (feel free to click here for more on that), but let’s just say I’m a fan. So, last night I wasn’t going to miss going to “Captain America: Civil War,” and of course, dressing in something that portrayed my love of Bucky Barnes. Haha. I… Read more »
