Alpaca sweater - Cusco Peru travel outfit

Click to shop: If you visit Cusco, Peru the first thing you will notice is nearly every shop and street vendor is selling “baby alpaca” sweaters. The second thing you will likely notice is that nearly none of these vendors are actually selling “baby alpaca” sweaters. (As the locals say its “maybe alpaca.” Ha!) How to Shop for Genuine Baby Alpaca Wool Sweaters Baby alpaca wool is the wool used when a baby alpaca gets its very first haircut. It… Read more »

nordstrom plaid cotton shirt

Shop the look: Now, this is an outfit I would never have thought I’d wear, much less feature on my blog! However, when it comes to my exploring/traveling outfits, I’ve been trying to broaden my horizons…especially since many of these journeys have been very long! (And comfort is key!) There is absolutely nothing wrong with this outfit, I just would have thought it was far too casual to feature on here until recently. I also always had a weird dislike… Read more »

So, here is my list of 10 wardrobe essentials for traveling. With them, you will always be ready to make up a casual or… 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 »

ModCloth map skirt

Shop the look: Over the years, I have really gotten quite good at purging things I don’t wear…and keeping a rather small wardrobe (I swear! 2 suitcases right now – that’s all), and literally only owning clothes and a few small mementos. Physical things just aren’t as important as travel right now. However, with that being said, I REALLY wish I could collect maps, globes…and on a random note, coffee mugs. These are things that every time I see them,… 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 »

Casual maxi skirt outfit

Shop the look:   Happy Friday! We made it through the week! And in honor of this lovely day, I’m sharing a casual and comfy Friday look. Ok, technically I think I had worn this outfit on a Wednesday…it was the last day of our trip in New Orleans, and I wanted a comfy look for wandering around in the morning and then flying home that afternoon/night. And this outfit was SO comfy for our plane ride. However, this top… Read more »

ModCloth marine bio skirt

Click to shop the look:   My self-control, that I was bragging about in my previous wishlist post, has completely gone to heck. Does this skirt look familiar? Haha, yeah, it’s the ModCloth one from my spring wishlist that I wanted but swore to myself I wasn’t going to buy. (Because I certainly have quite the collection of skirts already.) After I ordered it (in a moment of weakness), I even told myself I was going to just try it… Read more »

Modcloth skirt

Shop the look: The title of this outfit post makes it sound as though I went hiking through the African Safari or bungee jumping off a cliff. Which is a bit misleading, I will admit. In reality, I just went and had a beer and some pizza and then finally went to see Jurassic World (and absolutely loved it!). But this outfit does, for some reason, make me feel as though I could go hiking through the desert or rock… Read more »

Retro travel clothes

When it comes to traveling there is nothing more important than being comfortable – especially in the warm summer months. However, you don’t have to sacrifice style in the name of comfort. There are several things I like to keep in mind when dressing for summer travel: 1.) Comfortable shoes – I’m going to be walking all day! 2.) Make sure my arm pits are exposed – nothing is worse than having a clingy shirt around my sweaty pits! 3.)… Read more »

Shop the look: After doing a little traveling over the past couple weeks, I realized I have never done an actual “travel” outfit post. I guess this is usually because my travel outfits aren’t what you would call exciting, and I usually look rather windblown in travel pictures. Haha. I’m just not someone who can wear heels all day or have my hair curled perfectly… and be exploring a new city (but if you can, more power to you!). It’s… Read more »
