ModCloth Yellow Dress

Click to shop: I took full advantage of the warm weather last week in Wisconsin! (Is that an oxymoron “warm weather & Wisconsin?” Haha.) I’m kind of enjoying switching between my summer and winter wardrobe all within a week. There are so many fun options for clothing, then! And it’s certainly feeling like winter in Rosario today…I was wearing boots and a warm coat! (All within a week of taking these photos.) Anyways, back to this outfit I wore last… Read more »

Grey flapper dress

Click to shop: I’m going to be perfectly honest, these photos are a bit old. Sometimes I’ll take photos before I wear an outfit out and about to get a better idea of what it looks like. Photos tend to be more honest than my mirror, I’ve found. And this dress was actually supposed to be my New Year’s Eve dress. There was a 1920s themed party on the Sydney Harbour my hubby and I were thinking about attending. However,… Read more »

jd williams lace dress

I have really come to enjoy wishlist posts lately. It’s a fun way of window shopping for me…since I like to do all my shopping from the comfort of my couch, haha. And we’re currently getting one of the worst thunderstorms I’ve experienced since moving to Sydney, so I won’t be doing any actual window shopping today anyways. (Jeez! The building next to me was just struck by lightning – complete with a poof of smoke!) Yep, I’m staying in… Read more »

eshakti butterfly midi dress

The butterfly is a flying flower, The flower a tethered butterfly. ~Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun For reasons I can’t exactly articulate, I really like that quote. And while flowers and butterflies are both equally unique & beautiful in real life, I also think they are equally as fun as prints. However, I’m always drawn to florals when selecting a dress. I think this is because finding butterfly print clothing just isn’t as common. It can be a rather unique find…. Read more »

Makemechic wrap dress

Shop the look: It is starting to feel more and more like summer here in Sydney! This outfit was worn last weekend on a balmy Sunday afternoon…even the water was warm as it splashed my toes. But now, I’m currently in Wisconsin, where it’s well below freezing and very snowy! To say that I am cold would be an understatement, haha. I have definitely turned into “a baby” about the cold weather. (How did I ever do outfit posts in… Read more »

Vipme dress

Shop the look: Woah, is that some knee showing in this post? Craziness! I’ve hardly worn anything that showed a little leg since I came to Sydney (thanks to its windy conditions). It’s also been awhile since I’ve worn a dress that is this fitted. However, this dress being fitted is the reason I can get away with wearing something a little shorter in the breezy weather here…I won’t have to worry about this dress flying up over my head… 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 »

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 »

My courthouse wedding dress

Shop the look:   A few outfit posts ago I mentioned that I didn’t wear a traditional white wedding dress when I was married. In fact, my wedding dress is so far from traditional that I can still actually wear it for events! I had a couple readers ask to see it… so, here it is! Not what you expected, I bet? Haha. My husband and I were married on super short notice (in a courthouse) and my friend, Shannon,… Read more »

Jean Jacket

Shop the look: Putting this post together made me feel pretty old, not going to lie. I know I don’t have white hair or anything, but I did realize I had forgotten how old I was. (So, I’m already to that point in life.) I had myself convinced I was a full year younger than I actually am. Haha. But when I stopped to think about just how long I had this jean jacket, and did some math, I came… Read more »

Shop the look: I love Star Wars. Let’s be clear, though. When I say I love Star Wars, I’m referring to the originals… not those darn prequels with Jar Jar Binks in them. I also would like the world to be aware of my love of the original trilogy. What better way to showcase this, than with a one-of-a-kind Star Wars dress? I bought this dress off Etsy from a lady who makes them out of old Star Wars t-shirts…. Read more »
