Sydney shopping spree outfit

A couple of outfit posts ago I mentioned a shopping spree I went on the night before I left Sydney, Australia. I had been pretty “good” until that night about my shopping while I was in Sydney, despite temptation lurking around every corner. I mean, I even lived within walking distance of the Pitt Street Mall, which is home to some very yummy restaurants and, most importantly, 600 different stores…including Kate Spade, Review Australia and Nine West (a.k.a. a few… 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 »

team instinct outfit

Shop the look:   I know what you’re probably thinking…”Come on! Wasn’t the Pokémon Go craze going on months ago? Why are you bringing it up again?” And that, my friends, is because this weekend Niantic released the “Gen 2” Pokémon. So, there’s a whole bunch of adorable new Pokémon to catch! And Pokémon fans are quite excited! I never really stopped playing the game. My husband and I both enjoy it. But, recently, we weren’t playing as much as… Read more »

shein metallic skirt

Shop the look: Look at me go! I am on a roll with these trends! Haha. Although, again, I’m a bit behind with this one. Metallic skirts were all the rage for the holidays, and while this is a trend that does appear to still be going strong…I do see why they were so popular around the holidays. I mean, sparkly and shimmery is perfect for that time of year! But it can still work for the rest of the… Read more »

shein floral maxi skirt

Shop the look: I think I am officially at the age where it’s becoming acceptable to forget how old I am. Not that I’m implying I’m super old…I just kind of feel after the age of 21 (for us folks in the United States at least), age is just a number and doesn’t really matter all that much anymore. I honestly had to think about it for a moment when everyone asked how old I was turning this year, haha…. Read more »

Shein eyelet white midi skirt

Shop the look:   Happy 2 Year Blogiversary to me! Yippee! This deserves a fun skirt, a bouquet of flowers and a good twirl! Haha. But wow! Where did the time go? It feels like it was just yesterday I was taking photos with nothing but my iPhone in a park in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and trying to figure out how to upload them to WordPress, haha. Thankfully, the photography department has improved a bit since then…and WordPress is a… Read more »

Makemechic midi skirt

So, not to brag, but Links à la Mode is becoming a Sunday morning staple on my blog! Of course, it’s nice to have my work recognised, but it has also been a wonderful way to find new blogs to read. And I’m also very excited to see a couple new faces on Links à la Mode! Two of my favorite bloggers, Mona & Jen, both have posts featured this week! Yippee! (And if you’re a Pokémon GO fan, you’ll… 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 »

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 »

Romwe black midi skirt

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We laid low for most of it because I had a cold and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” came out on Amazon, so I had to watch it three more times, of course. (It makes my heart so happy!) However, we did get out of the house for one special occasion this weekend. It was my husband’s grandparent’s 52nd anniversary! How awesome is that? My grandparents have also been married for more than… Read more »

Shein swan skirt

Shop the look:   As you may have noticed, I have a bit of an addiction. I can’t stop wearing midi skirts…especially midi skirts from Shein. Seriously, if I had to pick one outfit to wear for the rest of my life, it would involve a formfitting top and this black swan midi skirt. I would choose this one above the rest, just because it is the most unique out of all my skirts…and it’s also one of the most… Read more »

Shein Floral Midi skirt

Shop the look: Inspiration can come from the most unlikely places. And such was the case with this outfit. I had spent the majority of last week sick and in bed with the plague (at least that’s what I think it was)…and because of this, I managed to watch the entire season of American Horror Story: Coven. I expected to enjoy the series, but I didn’t expect to find so much style inspiration! Every single lady (or should I say… Read more »

Black Swan skirt

There are some outfits that are worth waiting for – and I waited months before I finally broke out this one. I fell in love with this black swan skirt from Shein and have been waiting until the stars aligned before I wore it out. That happened when I received this gorgeous, silk scarf from Demon TZ. The two pieces matched perfectly, and it was just what I was looking for to complete this outfit. This is actually my first… Read more »

sheinside skirt

Shop the look: This outfit had indeed caught the eye of many of the people I encountered while wearing it. Some folks were sneaky about their glances, while others were openly gaping…trying to figure out what kind of event I was dressed for (at least that’s what I think they were thinking). The looks could have something to do with my enormous sun hat or brightly colored midi skirt… or maybe it’s because I walk like a newborn calf in… Read more »
