How to Tie a Scarf

Thank you to Demon TZ for sponsoring this video. This is my first video tutorial for my blog! I’m not going to lie, it’s far more nerve-racking to upload a video of myself talking, than it is to post my outfit photos. I have been taking my sweet time uploading this little tutorial. But one of my goals for my next year of blogging is to start making videos to feature on my blog – to spice things up a… Read more »

AMI Clubwear Maxi Dress

Shop the look: Vacation was incredible! My husband and I spent last week exploring parts of Cape Cod and then a couple days in Boston – I can’t believe it’s already over. We had so many incredible adventures, from shark cage diving and whale watching, to meeting one of my favorite bloggers in person, to going to my first Red Sox game! There’ll be blog posts on all of those experiences soon, but many of them include video. (Shark cage… Read more »

I am going to try something a little different for this post, instead of telling you about what I’m wearing, I’m going to talk about what I wish I was wearing. I’ve always loved reading other blogger’s wishlists, but have never gotten around to putting one together of my own. This is mainly because I was worried this practice could become dangerous. I mean, taking time to reflect on beautiful items that are not currently in my closet but I… Read more »

Sriracha shirt

Shop the look: Let me start off by clarifying this title – I do not think I am “too hot to handle” by any means. Haha. It is in reference to my shirt (and a funny comment made about it), and my odd obsession with putting Sriracha on everything I eat. I wear this shirt a lot. This shirt is the warm weather equivalent of my Great Gatsby sweatshirt. It’s comfortable, it’s soft, it’s quirky and people are always making… Read more »

Jen from Dressing With Class

Meet Jen! She’s this month’s Featured Fashionista and the lovely lady who created the blog, “Dressing With Class.” I was hooked on Jen’s fun sense of style when I saw a photo of her in ModCloth’s Style Gallery where she was wearing a Marvel Comics skirt! (I’m a huge Marvel fan.) That’s when I knew this was a blogger I was going to really like. And Jen and I do have very similar taste in Marvel comics heroes/villains, but I’ll… Read more »

Blog Anniversary Dress

Today is the day! It’s my one year blogging anniversary! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone and how much this little blog has grown in just one year. I’ll never forget how intimidating and scary it was when I “invited” everyone I knew to “like” Have Clothes, Will Travel on Facebook. (A big thank you to all my friends and family who accepted that invite – it was big confidence booster!) I’m still in disbelief that this… Read more »

#ifchic24

I promised to tell you today how you can get designer clothing for free…so, I’m about to let you in on the secret! The clothing site, ifchic, holds an event each month on the 24th where you can spend your “ifchic coins” toward their fabulous designer clothing! Ifchic features trends on their site from both established and emerging designers. And how do you get ifchic coins? It’s really easy. You go to their site and look on different pages for… Read more »

eShakti dress

Shop the look: Sometimes there’s no room for grey. It’s either black or it’s white…or in the case of this outfit, it’s both. Pops of color had tried to make their way into this look, but it just wasn’t as striking as the simplicity of black and white. My dress is the result of my new found obsession with eShakti. (Click here to see my last post featuring a dress from them.) I love the idea of being able to… Read more »

The amount of things to see and do (and eat!) in Rome seems to be never ending. My husband and I spent two weeks wandering the streets of Rome last spring, and I feel as though we only saw a fraction of what Rome had to offer. I’ve covered the more famous tours and sights in previous posts. In this post I will take a final look at some of the smaller, quirkier tours we took and some of my… Read more »

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 »

The North Woods

This weekend I ventured to a place where I had no access to social media, no cell phone reception and no traffic – it was heavenly. It was just my family, the puppies and my husband and I all spending a lovely weekend in The North Woods. I’m now back in Jersey where we have lots of traffic, cell phone reception and access to social media. So, to relive my little getaway from civilization I decided to share my photos… 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 »

China: Through the Looking Glass

To break up our usual Sunday ritual of going to the gym and then binge watching Netflix, my husband and I decided to head into the city and explore The Met for the day. I’ve been dying to see their collection of Egyptian Art and their exhibit “China: Through the Looking Glass.” I will be breaking this post into 3 parts, based on the exhibits we toured, starting with “China: Through the Looking Glass” and ending with “Arms & Armor.”… 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 »

She’s the vintage-clad star who created the blog “Prefer to be Demure,” and she’s this month’s Featured Fashionista! Lauren is always dressed to the nines in the best vintage skirts and dresses.

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 »

Drum roll, please! Golfing for Veterans, partnered with Have Clothes, Will Travel, has raised $7,000 for Operation Homefront this year! A big thank you to everyone who came out this weekend and participated! And especially thank you to all the amazing volunteers, everyone who donated items or money for raffles and hole sponsorships, the wonderful employees at Shamrock Heights Golf Course and Chris Jacke for coming out. However, most importantly, thank you to A.J. and Megan Griesbach who put this… 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 »

Amanda of “Enchanting Elegance” is this month’s Featured Fashionista! Enchanting Elegance is a delightful blog that showcases Amanda’s impeccable fashion sense and beautiful photography. Enchanting Elegance is one of my favorite blog to follow, not only to see Amanda’s inspiring styles, but because I always feel as though I am being transported into a real life fairytale when I look at Amanda’s photos. (You’ll see what I mean as you go through this feature!) Q&A With Amanda Tell me a… 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 »
