Esther Williams swimsuit

Shop the look: I can’t get enough of retro inspired swimwear this summer. I don’t know if I’ll ever wear a traditional bikini again after discovering these Esther Willliams swimsuits…that’ll take you back in time! This is the first one piece I’ve owned, probably since I was a little kid. It’s not that I’ve never wanted one, it’s just I could never find one that fit me, was comfortable and was flattering. But then it was Esther Williams swimwear to… Read more »

ModCloth Clothing Line

Shop the look: I am incredibly excited to announce that ModCloth launched their first ever clothing line, and I was one of the first to see it! I almost fell out of my chair when ModCloth contacted me about their new line and said that I was one of the ModCloth community members who helped inspire it! “I’m thrilled to say that you’re one of the community members who helped inspire this collection! We love that you’re so engaged, and… Read more »

Elephant shorts

Shop the look: Guess what? There are elephants on my shorts! How fun is that? I know I’ve said I hate wearing shorts, multiple times, but I’m starting to change my mind after living in these comfy elephant shorts for the weekend. Cloth shorts are seriously the answer to all my shorts problems! I went camping with my family last weekend, and comfort was the name of the game. (If you missed the photo gallery I put together on that,… 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 »

Tatyana Boutique fan skirt

By the time I was done taking photos for this post I could hardly stand up straight because I was so dizzy. Haha. But my husband was determined to get at least one photo of me twirling in this skirt where I didn’t look like I had just escaped from a mental institute. This skirt is a blast to twirl in, so I didn’t mind spinning around hundreds of times…even if I had an audience. I was in Central Park… Read more »

Hot Kiss dress

If asked what my favorite color is, I will always say pink. However, I don’t actually own all that much for pink clothing…or pink anything, really. I tend to gravitate more toward black clothing. Doesn’t exactly make sense, does it? So, when Hot Kiss Clothing was so kind as to send me this cute, pink (and incredibly soft) sundress… I realized this was something that needed to change – immediately. I started with picking up this hot pink shade of… Read more »

Floral skirt

Now, before I talk about why this outfit is particularly special to me and where you can find it… I have some exciting news to share about Have Clothes, Will Travel! I am coming up on my one year blogging anniversary! I can’t believe how far this site has come in just one year. And to say thank you to everyone who has followed along as I figured out my way in this crazy blogging world, and to maybe gain… Read more »

ModCloth Octopus top

Shop the look: As children (even as adults) when asked what our favorite sea creature is, the answer is almost always “dolphins” or “sharks” or “turtles.” I have yet to encounter someone who shares my obsession with octopuses. However, they must be out there…because there is now a wide variety of octopus clothing, accessories and home decor to choose from – much to my delight. For me, the octopus is quite majestic and mystical. Maybe it’s the tentacles, the black… 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: 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 »

This is an outfit I can’t take credit for putting together. My husband and friends all had a hand in this one. My husband had bought me this awesome Jump From Paper purse for my birthday, and then went shopping for this skirt and top, so, I would have an outfit to match my new little purse. (He’s a keeper!) My cousin, Mandie, and friend, Ashlee, both sent me links to these awesome heels I am wearing…they had immediately thought… Read more »

FTC Disclosure: Thank you to eShakti for sending me this dress to feature on my blog. All opinions are my own, and I am not being compensated for a positive review. Some links may be affiliate links. Shop the look: Unassuming, dainty and cheerful, the daisy is not as ostentatious as a lily or fragrant as a rose. They subtlety brighten a room without commanding attention. If there was ever a flower I would want to emulate – it would be… Read more »

Shop the look: It has been years since I was last on an actual oceanside beach. I’m pretty sure the last time was in Goa – which is already two years ago! Thankfully, that dry spell came to an end this weekend. My husband and I ventured out to Manasquan Beach and had a wonderfully relaxing time. (If you’re looking for a gorgeous, quiet beach on the Jersey Shore – I highly recommend this one.) And what better time to… Read more »

*This is a post I did last September that I am digging back up. And just a warning, this is not my usual outfit or travel post, so, prepare yourself. (I am just too excited not to share this with you all!) I have never been considered athletic or coordinated in my entire life. However, this past weekend I proved to everyone, and mainly myself, that with enough determination and hard-work I could be an athlete. I successfully ran my… 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 »

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 »

ModCloth’s Stylish Surprise is happening right NOW (10/2/2017) Click here to shop it! If you need more info on the stylish surprise event, just keep scrolling. 🙂 Shop the look: Surprises can evoke a myriad of emotions in a person. Some love surprises, while others get a bit twitchy at the thought of the unknown. If you are the kind of person where thoughts of the unexpected make you feel like a kid on Christmas morning, just bursting with anticipation…this post… Read more »

Shop the look: There’s a first time for everything! And this is the first time I’ve ever worn a sun hat. I was planning on waiting until I was at the beach this summer to break it out, but the weather has been sunny and in the 80s (and is supposed to get up to 90 today!)…so, it seemed silly to wait any longer, when it appears summer has already arrived. This sun hat I bought at Target…when I was grocery… Read more »

Shop the look: Happy May the 4th, everyone! Star Wars Day is coming just days after the release of “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” So, I am really getting to show off my inner geek these past few days. Haha. My Star Wars dress has been on the blog before. However, given the significance of today, it deserved another feature! This dress was made by a very talented lady I found on Etsy. It is actually an old (very large) t-shirt… Read more »

Shop the look:   The Last Scene in The Avengers Maria Hill: Sir, how does it work now? They’ve gone their separate ways, some pretty extremely far. We get into a situation like this again, what happens then? Nick Fury: They’ll come back. Maria Hill: You really sure about that? Nick Fury: I am. Maria Hill: Why? Nick Fury: Because we’ll need them to. And come back the Avengers have! I am so excited to finally see “Avengers: Age of… Read more »

Shop the look: Can you see me? I’m over here! This may not be the kind of “camouflage” clothing most folks are used to seeing, but I do blend into my surroundings quite well! (Well, except for my Jump From Paper purse. Haha.) I just can’t get enough of all the blooming trees…or flowered clothing items, for that matter. This top is pretty old..I’ve had it for quite a few years, but I still love breaking it out in the… Read more »

Shop the look: Have you ever had a pair of panda shoes, and just couldn’t decide what to pair them with? Ok, that may just be a problem that I have…but I do really like the way all of my panda attire came together with this little ladybug purse. My panda shoes were a Christmas gift from my mom that I absolutely adore. I’ve been wearing them all winter long with black pants or black leggings and various sweaters. However,… Read more »

Have you ever had a piece of clothing you liked so much that you never wore it? I know that may sound a little crazy, but I’ll explain myself. This dress was something I knew I wanted the second I saw it on ModCloth’s “New Arrivals” section. However, I tried to not be an impulse buyer, and instead put it on my Wishlist and thought about it for a few days. By the time I decided I needed this dress… Read more »

Shop the look: I spent almost an entire weekend admiring a plethora of flowering tress. My husband and I went to visit the cherry blossoms (and magnolia blossoms) in Washington, D.C. So, this seemed to be an appropriate time for me to wear a dress with flowers on it. I’ve had this dress for a really, really long time. It’s actually from Hollister, which means it had to have been bought circa high school. Ha. I haven’t worn it in… Read more »

  “When you play a game of thrones, you win or you die.” George R.R. Martin George R.R. Martin’s ability to build characters and tear them down, is absolutely unparalleled. When reading/watching the Game of Thrones series, your favorite character is never safe, and absolutely anything can happen in the blink of eye (literally anything, from direwolves to white walkers…there’s all kinds of crazy stuff). This series is also unique because the book series and the television series are both… Read more »
