SHOP SPLASH

“He’s making a list, and checking it twice…gonna find out who’s naughty and nice. Santa Claus is coming to town!” And hopefully, I’m on the nice list, because I went a little overboard with my wishlist here. Haha. I seriously can’t believe Christmas is just over a month away…especially since it just keeps getting hotter and hotter here! But when Shop Splash reached out to me about putting together a wishlist, I knew I wanted to start thinking about what… Read more »

IXIAH

Yippee! Another week, another Links à la Mode feature! This week’s post selected to be featured by Independent Fashion Bloggers was my “Fashion Weekend Sydney” post. I’m excited they enjoyed getting a glimpse at Sydney’s fashion scene as much as I did. In other news, today was a bit busy (in a fun way)… I finished up booking our trip to Uluru a.k.a. Ayers Rock a.k.a the big rock in the middle of the desert in Australia. I’m pretty excited… Read more »

Japanese beer girl

This week’s Links à la Mode is giving me a chance to bring up Japan one more time! Did I mention I really loved my time in Japan? Well, I REALLY loved Japan. And I was very excited my blog post “My Top 10 Favorite Things I Did in Japan” was selected by Independent Fashion Bloggers for this week’s Links à la Mode! Also, if you have time check out the actual link to IFB’s post here…I love that my… Read more »

grey trench coat

It’s funny that this week’s outfit post selected to be featured on Links à la Mode is actually the same outfit as what I had worn in yesterday’s “Skywalk” post. Yep, my “Seasonally Confused” outfit is what I had on to do the “Skywalk.” As you can see, I was not even a little prepared for what that all entailed! Haha. (Click here to see yesterday’s Skywalk post if you missed it.) And if you’re wondering, I’m still seasonally confused,… Read more »

ATM COLLECTION

Wishlist posts are something I love and hate putting together all at once. They are incredibly fun and exciting to make…but they also get my brain into fantasy shopping mode, which can be a bit dangerous. Taking a look back at my previous wishlist posts…I’ve actually ended up acquiring more from them than was probably necessary. Whoops! However, when ATM Collection reached out to me about this wishlist post, I thought this would be more of a therapeutic exercise. This… Read more »

WE ARE KINDRED

My first Fashion Weekend Sydney is in the books! It’s an event filled with runway shows, designer sample sales, the latest makeup/hair trends and champagne. It’s pretty hard not to have a good time! Fashion Weekend Sydney is different than Sydney’s Fashion Week, though. Fashion Weekend is a fun shopping event that has runway shows…but the runway shows include ready-to-wear pieces…so, if you saw a dress you liked on the runway, you can walk out to the sales floor and… Read more »

Sydney outfit

My days are completely messed up. I went all day thinking today was Monday…whoops! I then had a bit of panic attack, as I realized I had not yet posted this week’s Independent Fashion Bloggers Links à la Mode feature, and it’s already Tuesday night! But I’ll blame that mix up on yesterday day being Labor Day here in Australia…so, it was a nice long weekend here! It was also apparently Day Light Savings Time, which I was completely unaware… Read more »

Striped dress

Ok, so today did not quite go according to plan. I had planned to spend some time putting together an outfit post from this weekend that I am very excited to share with you guys…but while I was editing photos, my washing machine became possessed by an evil force and spewed water all over my apartment floor, until I managed to turn the valves off. It all happened so fast! Haha. And while I was trying to call maintenance, the… Read more »

Summer outfit - ice cream purse

Alrighty, our regularly scheduled programming is going to get a bit shaken up here at Have Clothes, Will Travel. I’m getting ready to move (once again), and things are going to be a little crazy around here. Sadly, my time in Tokyo is coming to an end. I really don’t want it to be over…Japan has been such an incredible country to live in these past few months. I’m honestly a bit depressed about it, which the gloomy, rainy weather… Read more »

Japanese Kimono

What? Today is not Sunday, is it? I know I normally do this post on Sunday, but with my blogiversary, and with my days in Japan being numbered…I didn’t have enough time this weekend to get this post out on its usual day. Sorry! This week’s blog post winner for me was my “Wearing a Kimono” post! And a quick refresher on what Links à la Mode is… The site, Independent Fashion Bloggers, selects 20 of the best blog posts… Read more »

blooper photos

The day is finally here! I’m sharing some of my best blooper photos for my blogiversary – which is coming up on Monday! I’m not going to lie, this was one of the hardest posts I’ve ever put together. Not because I’m so embarrassed to show these to you guys…I just had so many of them to choose from that narrowing it down to a decent amount was really difficult, haha. The majority of the photos taken of me look… Read more »

I don’t normally do these kinds of posts, but I thought this would be a fun one to take part in…especially because of my upcoming blog anniversary! It’s always great to reflect at this time of the year. The lovely Lee of “Lee Thrifts” tagged me in the “Get to know me – 4 things” tag. (Thank you, Lee!) And I loved reading through her answers! (Click here to see Lee’s answers.) So, here are my answers! Enjoy! Four Places… 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 »

Shein Crop Top

Wow! Two weeks in a row, now, I’ve had a blog post selected by the Independent Fashion Bloggers for Links à la Mode! I’m pretty darn excited about that.

(A big thank you to Devinne of Mox and Socks for introducing me to Links à la Mode.) So, what is Links à la Mode? It is a weekly roundup of 20 of the best blog posts selected by the… Read more »

You may have noticed when you clicked on this link the fancy, new Have Clothes, Will Travel header at the top of the page! How awesome is that? The lovely Kathy from Lace & Whimsy is the artist behind it. I absolutely love it! Take a look below at the difference between my old blog header and my new one. The one above is the blog header I originally started with, and the one below is what Kathy created for… Read more »

longest lasting lipstick

While makeup is not the primary focus of my blog posts, I do wear lipstick for almost all my posts. And my previous try at a beauty post is actually what sparked the idea to do this one! I had many questions and comments about the lipstick I was wearing in my eyelash extension post. I also had a friend reach out to suggest I try a lipstick called LipSense. So, this post will be taking a look at all… Read more »

Swans

For one week every spring, my tiny hometown becomes a pitstop for flocks and flocks of majestic swans. Entire fields will be filled with these beautiful creatures for just a few fleeting days. I was beyond excited to see while I was driving today, that they are beginning to make their return. I had not been home at the same time as the swans for..oooh.. about 10 years. And at that time, I did not have a camera, or even… Read more »

Novalash eyelash extension

I don’t usually dab into the beauty world at all on my blog, but I really wanted to talk about my experience with eyelash extensions today! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed I was in Minneapolis last weekend. This was because my friend Trina, the owner of Beyond Beautiful Salon, had invited me along while she taught a Novalash Eyelash Extension class in the city. Trina both applies the eyelash extensions at her salon and is one… Read more »

Living in a state with interesting weather, like Wisconsin, and hating treadmills means you have to be prepared for a variety of weather conditions if you’re a runner. One day it can be 50 degrees Fahrenheit and the next it’s below freezing. This post is going to take a look at running outfits I’ve worn in a wide range of elements. I’ve been wanting to do a post like this ever since I ran the Frostbite in Stevens Point, Wisconsin,… Read more »

I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions or spend too much time dwelling on the past. And frankly, my favorite New Year Eve’s have been spent in my pjs with friends and family, watching TV. Last year, we spent it at a ski lodge in Michigan…which is about as fancy as my New Year has ever been (but I still was in my pjs before midnight, watching TV). Haha. The year before I watched an entire season of American… Read more »

Alterre shoes

Who wants a free pair of shoes, just in time for the holidays? Silly question, I know. Haha. I am really excited to tell you about Alterre’s giveaway, and how you can enter to win a pair of their shoes in this post! And these shoes by Alterre are actually really unique. You can change the look of your shoe by simply detaching the strap and adding a new one. How cool of an idea is that? And the shoe… Read more »

how to make a terrarium

Brace yourselves – I’m getting crafty for a moment! Today, I’m going to talk about how you can make your own terrarium in 10 minutes flat, with several easy steps. That’s all it took for me to make the one in the photo above. Also, if you’re on a budget this holiday season, these make fantastic budget friendly gifts. And no two ever turn out quite the same. I know I’m not usually posting any how-to posts or getting too… Read more »

painting class

I have to tell you all about an awesome experience I had over the past couple weeks! I had the opportunity to model for a painting class held by the Willingboro Art Alliance. It was so cool to be a part of and such a unique experience. A friend, who knows the teacher of the class, had passed my name along, and that’s how this all happened. This is also why I mentioned I had been wearing my colorful fall… Read more »

Liebster Award

I am so honored and excited! I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award by three incredibly talented ladies..Devinne from “Mox and Socks,” Mona from “Curls & Cakes” and Kathy from “Lace & Whimsy” (I know your nomination was awhile ago, but I didn’t forget!). If you aren’t already following these lovely ladies, definitely check them out! And thank you so much for the nominations! So, what is the Liebster Award exactly? It’s an award presented to bloggers by bloggers as… Read more »
