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 »

FashionMia lace bodycon dress

Woah, would you look at that. Two posts featuring bodycon dresses in one week! Craziness, haha. These are certainly dresses that are out of the ordinary for this blog! But, the lovely folks over at FashionMia had sent me this fun bodycon dress right after I posted Monday’s post. So, here we are, two bodycons in one week! I even went ahead and shot a video of this dress (at the end of the post), so you could see it… Read more »

modcloth map skirt

Click to shop: While I do my best to wear all the items in my wardrobe, there are few pieces I always find myself reaching for in the morning. This fun skirt and lovely top are two of those items. They’re both incredibly easy to mix and match. I also love wearing them in hot weather (but it’s easy enough to pair them with a cardigan for chillier weather). As you might have noticed too, these photos weren’t taken in… Read more »

pink lace dress

This week took a rather unexpected turn, and I am actually back in the United States right now visiting family! My husband and I were approved by his company last minute to come home for our nephew’s baptism this past Sunday. So, this last week and a half was a little crazy as we prepared to fly from Argentina back to the US. (Sorry for not being as responsive to comments & social media right now!) I do have new… 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 »

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 »

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 »

Shop the look: I may be a bit early to this party, but I’m showing off my best patriotic look for this post! Why wait until the Fourth of July? This dress had been the result of a maxi skirt/dress buying binge I went on before I left for India. We weren’t able to wear anything that went above our knees, and wearing pants in 90+ degree weather seemed like an awful idea. Maxi dresses and skirts were the most… Read more »

Shop the look: “Matchy-matchy” is usually used as a negative term, but I don’t think there is any such thing as “too color coordinated.” I am all for seeing just how “matchy-matchy” I can make an outfit. This particular one was a bit of a happy accident..I had no idea I had so many accessories that were the same shade of red – even my nail polish and lipstick were the same shade! This outfit all started with my red… Read more »
