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 »
