Review Jumper - Judy Blue Jeans

Casual and comfortable was the name of the style game this past weekend. After our long, whirlwind weekend in Buenos Aires, the hubby and I needed a little R&R. We spent most of the weekend just meandering around Rosario and enjoying the incredible spring weather. This outfit was perfect for such a weekend. I’ve been meaning to feature this pink jumper in a more casual outfit for awhile, now. (See the dressy outfit, here.) But I didn’t get around to… Read more »

ModCloth's Stylish Surprise

You may have noticed me mentioning ModCloth‘s Stylish Surprise every 6 months or so on my social media accounts. This is because I absolutely LOVE participating in this sale. However, I realize it’s been awhile since I’ve actually explained what this sale is, as it isn’t your typical sale event. I also thought it would be fun to show off the items I’ve gotten via this sale over the years. There have been a lot of hits, but there have… Read more »

Shein top and ModCloth cat bag

Click to shop: It’s really been fun trying to dress for all the seasons this week, haha. My last outfit post was all about spring, and then the temps dipped back down to make it perfect to break out my fall/winter wardrobe again…all in the same weekend. And while I’m generally a fan of wearing vintage inspired dresses or skirts on the weekend, this past weekend I was all about jeans and silky tops. The top featured in this post… 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 »

ModCloth Yellow Dress

Click to shop: I took full advantage of the warm weather last week in Wisconsin! (Is that an oxymoron “warm weather & Wisconsin?” Haha.) I’m kind of enjoying switching between my summer and winter wardrobe all within a week. There are so many fun options for clothing, then! And it’s certainly feeling like winter in Rosario today…I was wearing boots and a warm coat! (All within a week of taking these photos.) Anyways, back to this outfit I wore last… Read more »

Review Australia cardigan & Evan Picone dress

Click to shop: While I do adore this dress and cardigan, I realized when putting this post together that the real stars were actually these heels! I know I’ve featured them before, but I’ve now had some time to really test them out. I’ve had them for about 6 months now and have put some serious miles on them. And, remarkably, they are VERY comfortable to walk in and cute to boot! Since moving to Rosario, these are actually the… Read more »

ModCloth Octopus Midi Skirt

Click to shop:   Believe it or not, this outfit post was taken just 2 days before my previous outfit post (the one where I was all bundled up and the temps were below freezing). It was nearly 80 degrees Fahrenheit the day these photos were taken! I honestly didn’t need this pink cardigan, I just liked the way it looked. Haha. Argentina is certainly giving Wisconsin a run for its money for the title of wackiest weather! But anyways,… Read more »

ModCloth Stylish Surprise

Click to shop: I have been patiently waiting for a blustery, frigid day to break out this darling midi skirt. Doesn’t that sound ridiculous? Actually looking forward to cold weather to test out a skirt? Ah well, what can I say, I do like the seasons. (Despite my complaints.) This skirt was one I had received in ModCloth’s last Stylish Surprise event. I’ve personally had some amazing luck in the apparel department for the Stylish Surprise. If you haven’t heard… Read more »

high waisted shorts

It’s been awhile since I’ve done an outfit remix post! And typically when I do an outfit remix it’s centered around a slightly more unusual clothing piece than a pair of shorts. However, the purpose of this post is to show that a single pair of high-waisted jean shorts can get a ton of use! They can also have a lot of different looks…even with using similar accessories. (I tend to wear the same shoes, use the same bags &… Read more »

ModCloth blouse

Oofta! This past month has certainly been an interesting one. Our move to Argentina has proved to be our most challenging one yet. Not that that is a bad thing. It just means there are new things to learn and adapt to. We’ve also traveled to a total of 3 continents in less than a month, haha. And, unfortunately, while I’m learning and adapting and traveling, creating brand spanking new blog material in Argentina has not been happening as quickly… Read more »

Star Wars Cat Wars shirt

Sorry! I know I’m late to the party on this post… but happy belated Star Wars Day! This is the outfit I broke out for the occasion. As you can see, I was not in Argentina, but instead at my parent’s house. It was really nice to pop home and see everyone for a bit. (However, I do apologize for getting behind on my posts and such this last week!) This isn’t the most exciting Star Wars-themed outfit I’ve ever… Read more »

Queenstown, NZ

Holy moly, I know this is an outfit post, but would you look at that background! These photos were taken in Queenstown, New Zealand on our trip a couple weeks ago (this is the same area as my bungy jump post on Monday). I don’t know if I have seen a place quite as beautiful as Queenstown. It literally looked like a postcard every place you turned! But anyways, I’ll be sharing some proper beauty shots of Queenstown on Friday…let’s… Read more »

tatyana boutique fan skirt

As I’m writing this post, I’m also crossing my fingers and toes hoping I get to wear this outfit again in the near future. All but one lonely suitcase was packed up when we left Sydney and shipped via a moving company…with the disclaimer that it could be up to 6 months before I see any of it again because customs in Argentina inspects each thing by hand that comes in….among several issues with importing goods and our visas. (Eeek.)… Read more »

Review Australia

Ok, let me start off by saying I’m not here to start a war or tell you not to shop at ModCloth. However, after the news broke that ModCloth was bought out by Jet.com and Walmart, I’ve been getting this question pretty frequently, “What other online stores are out there like ModCloth?” So, I figured putting together a list of some websites that are similar to ModCloth might be useful! Though I still like ModCloth, I’ve personally started looking at… Read more »

bondi dragonfly mural

Shop the look:   Guilty as a charged, folks! I know it’s been less than a month since you last saw this skirt…and I do try to do a slightly better job of not being a repeat offender when it comes to my outfit posts. Not to say that I don’t feature the same clothing items on here again and again. I just generally try to space out statement pieces a few months at a time. However, I couldn’t stop… Read more »

blanket scarf and modcloth dress

Shop the post: Alright, so I am a bit late to this trend…I think about two years late, actually. Are blanket scarves even trendy anymore? Probably not. Haha. But I’ve always been hesitant to invest in anything trendy and am usually the last blogger to jump on board. But this is one trend I was really missing out on! (And will continue to wear whether it’s “cool” or not!) While I was home for the holidays in Wisconsin, my mom… Read more »

Wilsons Leather Jacket

Shop the look: I know, the first thing that comes to mind for most people when getting dressed for a special occasion, like a wedding anniversary, is NOT a quirky Star Wars shirt, red leather jacket and a super fun Betsey Johnson camera purse. But, I’m not most people. Haha. My husband and I celebrated our 4th year of marriage on January 4th (last week). And, we originally didn’t have any big plans for it. However, we tried a couple… Read more »

modcloth striped skirt

Shop the look: Look! There’s snow! And I’m wearing an honest-to-goodness winter outfit – the first one in many moons! Haha. Don’t worry this isn’t Sydney. This was actually my Christmas Eve outfit for when I was back home by my family. I passed up the traditional red and green outfit for a couple of reasons this year. First being I really wanted to wear this outfit but it’s been too warm in Sydney, haha. The top and the skirt… Read more »

shein floral maxi skirt

Shop the look: I think I am officially at the age where it’s becoming acceptable to forget how old I am. Not that I’m implying I’m super old…I just kind of feel after the age of 21 (for us folks in the United States at least), age is just a number and doesn’t really matter all that much anymore. I honestly had to think about it for a moment when everyone asked how old I was turning this year, haha…. Read more »

map skirt modcloth

Shop the look: These are the only photos from my trip to the Australian Outback where you won’t see me sweating profusely in crummy, old workout clothes. Haha. Most of my time in Uluru was spent being active, but for this night, I had a special candlelit dinner in the desert to go to (there’ll be a separate post on that), and wearing my map skirt, once again, felt like the perfect occasion. (I love wearing this skirt when I’m… Read more »

Stylewe skirt

Click to shop the look, below: My oh my, it is nice to take a little break from having the city as my backdrop! Look, there are trees and grass in this post! Haha. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy living in all the hustle and bustle and excitement of the city, but when it comes to taking photos for the blog – I much prefer being in a quite wooded area by myself. I get incredibly anxious posing… Read more »

JORD watches outfit

Shop the look: There are so many pieces in this outfit that I’m excited about I hardly know where to start! And you can even win my favorite part of the outfit! I think I’ll save that part for last, though. This outfit started with going on a ModCloth binge and ordering enough to get my free international shipping, haha. I finally invested in an Ooh La La Lady top and LOVE it. Bonus for it fitting perfectly with my… Read more »

featuredfashionistabrittneyg

Meet Brittney! She’s this month’s Featured Fashionista and a creative force to be reckoned with! Many of you ModCloth-lovers may recognize Brittney from ModCloth’s “#fashiontruth” campaign. And she’s also the incredibly talented Art Director for Jonesboro-based magazine, “Occasions!” The ModCloth campaign (that we’ll talk more about shortly) is where I had originally been introduced to Brittney and how amazing and creative she is. And through the magic of social media, I felt I came to know Brittney even better. I’ve… Read more »

MODCLOTH DRESS - KATE SPADE BAG

Shop the look: This past week has been interesting…to say the least. And more than enough random things have been getting mixed up or broken. You know the washing machine incident from my last post…and now my trusty cream colored, leather purse, I’ve had for ages, finally broke (to name a couple of this week’s random mishaps). One of the straps disconnected itself…and went to purse heaven. I had been hoping it would make it until Christmas because my Christmas/birthday… Read more »

pleated skirt outfit remix

I had a sneaking suspicion that this skirt was going to be versatile when I bought it years ago…but I didn’t expect to get quite this much use out of it! I knew that it’s been on the blog a lot, but I didn’t realize I was already up to 7 times! This was one good investment piece (and the stretchy waistband is super comfy). However, it’s never been the center of an outfit post. It’s always been more of… Read more »

grey trench coat

Shop the look: Right now, I have boots, trench coats and scarves on my mind. However, it’s spring here! So, I am really struggling at the moment, haha. It feels so strange to be going through the motions of spring again! But I was able to compromise with myself. I needed a new lightweight coat, as I hadn’t really packed much for coats or jackets, other than a jean jacket. In Wisconsin, it felt like I always went from short… Read more »

Esther Williams swimsuit

Click to shop: This isn’t the first time any of these vintage inspired items have been featured on my blog…but it’s the first time I ever put them all together for one great, big vintage inspired/retro look! Haha. And if this setting looks familiar, it’s the same beach where my beach look from last week was featured…they were both worn on the same day, actually. I wore the dress for traveling and the suit to jump in the ocean with…. Read more »

Striped Maxi Dress

Shop the look: This past weekend was my first time going to the beach here in Japan! It was nearly 100 degrees Fahrenheit all weekend, so it was either air conditioning or the beach for activities. The trip to the Kamakura Beach from our apartment in Tokyo took a little over an hour by train…so, comfort was the name of the game. I wore this light, floaty maxi dress for the trip to stay nice and cool. (The walk from… Read more »
