shein floral button maxi dress

Click to shop: My trip back to my home state of Wisconsin was just what I needed. The balmy summer days and time with family and friends does the soul good….as does a little wildflower picking. Actually, technically, I believe these are weeds, haha. But nonetheless, I’ve always thought “Queen Anne’s lace” was pretty, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Right? And for such occasions, one needs the perfect dress! My little venture into bodycon dresses was… Read more »

Shein floral cropped jacket

Click to shop: If you’ve been following along on my social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.) you may have noticed I was really excited to order another pair of glasses! I had featured a pair from GlassesShop.com in this post here. And while I still love wearing them, they fit a little wonky now thanks to falling asleep with them on during a flight…and smashing my face into the window next to me. (Whoops!) But I now have another pair… Read more »

Shein ruffle sleeves white top

The only kind of drama I like – dramatic sleeves! And this my first outfit post from Rosario! I do still have travel posts left from New Zealand, but I wanted to break this week up a bit and not go too travel crazy. So, here’s a little outfit post to spice things up. I’m always a bit late to join the party when it comes to trends, but I do LOVE the dramatic sleeves trend that has been going… Read more »

shein black and white high waisted shorts

Shop the look: Ok, admittedly, in today’s day and age, these shorts aren’t all that short. They feel short to me….and for some reason, I can’t get that song “Short Shorts” by The Royal Teens out of my head this week, haha. But hey! At least my butt cheeks are covered, haha. And oh my goodness gracious! These are the most comfortable pair of shorts I now own – hands down. They are baggy in all the right places and… 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 Maxi dress

Shop the look: The first day I wore this dress, my husband loved it. Not only did he think it looked cool, but he also couldn’t stop laughing because I had a woman sneakily trying to photograph this dress while we were walking to dinner. She was pretty sneaky, as I didn’t notice until my husband pointed it out. I should’ve turned around and just told her where it was from. Alas, introversion got the best of me, though. (I… Read more »

shein blazer

Shop the look: Just as we were about to leave for the day, my husband looked at me and said, “You look too expensive to be standing next to me! Should I change?” As he was wearing jeans and a t-shirt. I laughed and told him he looked great…and we went about our day. But that made me think about this outfit a little harder. If you took the accessories out of the equation, this outfit cost just under $70…. Read more »

Shein Polka dot dress

Shop the look: As you’re reading this post, I will be flying somewhere over the Pacific Ocean on my way to our new home Sydney, Australia! That is crazy to think. Especially since we’ve been trying to move to Australia for the past 4 years…it really doesn’t feel like it’s happening now. So, this will be my last outfit post from Japan. I do have a few travel posts from Tokyo that I will publish next week (including a post… Read more »

Crop top and maxi skirt

Shop the look: Would you looks at that…two crop tops in one summer! Haha. Boy oh boy, I’m coming around to this trend! Not because I actually want to be showing my midsection off, I just really like the way this style of top looks with my high-waisted bottoms. (I mean can you even tell this is a crop top with the skirt I’m wearing?) And on warm days, it’s comfier than tucking a shirt into my bottoms. This is… 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 »

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 »

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 »

shein pleated maxi skirt

I watch entirely too much TV. This is mainly because I am married to someone who has very similar taste in television…so, there’s no fighting over the remote, we can binge watch an entire season of a show on a Sunday and not get mad at each other… but actually be rather pleased with how we spent our day of rest. (That’s true love, right? Haha.) So, when we were in New Orleans you better believe we made our way… 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 dragon dress

Let me start out by saying, dragons are awesome. And if you can have dragons on your dress, by all means, do it. My love of dragons probably stems from my obsession with Game of Thrones…which has some pretty incredible dragons in it. However, I had actually bought this dress because I had seen its designer inspiration at The Met this summer. I fell in love with the detail of this Laurence Xu dragon robe dress immediately. (This was part… Read more »

SHEIN SKIRT

Shop the look: The little garden where I took these photos is hidden just off a main walkway through Princeton’s campus. I had wandered past it several times and never noticed it was there, until this weekend. It was perfect timing too, because this is the kind of outfit that deserves a garden to be photographed in. I mean, my skirt has a whole garden on it practically…ranging from butterflies to roses. This skirt is another Shein find and is… 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 »

Shop the look: I can’t believe how fast summer is going! I feel as though I blinked and June was over…and it’s now the weekend of the 4th! Which of course means you need to be decked out in your best red, white and blue attire. I did an outfit post a few weeks ago on one of my favorite red, white and blue outfits. However, I had one more occasion to be patriotic for. This outfit was for Golfing… Read more »
