ueno zoo panda entrance

Shop the look:   Going to see incredibly adorable pandas calls for wearing panda-themed clothing! Haha. We visited the Ueno Zoo here in Tokyo, which is home to two cute pandas named Shin Shin and Ri Ri. I just couldn’t be living this close to pandas without seeing them at least once! But I’m going to make you guys wait until tomorrow’s post to see the actual pandas. (Plus a whole bunch of other incredible animals). For today, we’ll just… Read more »

Shein crop top

Shop the look: I have been working up the courage to wear a crop top for years now…and I’ve finally taken the plunge! But thanks to my lovely high-waisted shorts and midi skirt collection that I’ve been adding to over the years… I don’t actually have to show skin unless I want to. As you can see with this outfit, I’m not really showing my midriff, unless I’m reaching for something. (I did have a little skin showing when I… Read more »

ModCloth Marine Bio Skirt

Shop the look:   I do confess, I wear this skirt entirely too much. It was one that I should never have bought because I really don’t need any more skirts. (I talked about that at length in this post.) But fortunately, I have been getting an absolute ton of use out of it. It’s become my new favorite exploring skirt…because it’s just dressy enough to make me feel cute, but it’s casual enough I can get away with wearing… Read more »

Map of the world skirt ModCloth

Shop the look:   I have been waiting to wear this outfit for around 4 months. I had bought this map skirt thinking it would be fun to wear once our visas for Australia were approved. I even paid a few dollars extra for shipping on the skirt…just in case our visas were approved quickly. As we now know, that was not the case…but last week, I was finally able to break this outfit out! (You can click here to… 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 »

Stylish Surprise dress

Shop the look:   New Orleans is fabulous, guys! I’m having a blast! And don’t worry these photos are not from The Big Easy…it’s much greener there, haha. I took these in Wisconsin just before I left. (And a reminder, you can see photos from my trip on Instagram.) And I’m sorry, I know this dress has been featured on my blog a ton already. However, I love, love, love it! And can you ever have too much of a… Read more »

PSA: ModCloth’s Stylish Surprise is happening right NOW (3/29/2016) click here for dresses, click here for shoes and click here for apparel. If you need more info on the stylish surprise event, just click here. The days are getting longer, the air is slightly warmer and visions of pastels and floral prints are dancing in my head. Spring is here, and there are so many fun things I wish I had in my closet. I haven’t been doing wishlists posts… Read more »

thredUP Spring Capsule Wardrobe

Welcome to Day 2 of my Spring Capsule Wardrobe week! Out of this whole week of outfits, I think this one is my favorite. It has everything in it that makes my heart happy. It includes a very comfortable floral print dress that doesn’t wrinkle…and I have novelty flats & a novelty bag. How can you not be happy when you have panda shoes and an ice cream cone bag? Haha. If you missed yesterday’s post, just a quick reminder… Read more »

ModCloth skirt & shoes

Shop the look: Guess what? There was another snowstorm in Wisconsin this week. Shocking, I know. Haha. It sure makes for some pretty photos, though. And in case you couldn’t tell. I really love using these pine trees as a backdrop. The way the snow sticks to them makes it look like I’m living in a winter wonderland! And when you’re living in a winter wonderland, you have to bundle up a bit. I’m really loving hats at the moment…. Read more »

Kitty Sweatshirt ModCloth

Shop the look: We had a little snowstorm here in Northeast Wisconsin. It was nothing comparable to Winter Storm Jonas…but we did get about 5 inches of snow on top of however many inches we already had. It was enough to make driving a pain…but also make the world look beauuuutiful. I decided to take full advantage of this winter wonderland yesterday.. and had a little fun playing out in the snow for this outfit post. I know I won’t… Read more »

stylish surprise cardigan

Remember last week when I said that I was getting back in the habit of dressing up and such? I take it back! That’s because that was before the temperature dipped into the single/negative digits. I’m right back to wearing cozy cardigans and boots – sorry! But this particular cardigan I’ve been meaning to show you all for quite a while, now. This fun, asymmetrical, cardigan was my “apparel” mystery item in ModCloth’s Stylish Surprise this last fall. Again, this… Read more »

Lilee Fashionyamanto dress

Shop the look: Cozy outfits have been fun and all, but it’s time to get back to some fancier attire. And what better way to get back in the habit of dressing up, than with this vintage-inspired, fancy, frock? I’m a goner for a dress with polka dots and one that is fit and flare…and has some sleeves, too! So, basically this dress was made for me. Plus, it fits like a glove, and I’m also happy with how it’s… Read more »

H&M Dress

Shop the look: Battling the wind has not been something I have had to do in a long time..or battling any weather in general, I suppose. I’ve been rather spoiled. But there are some outfits I think work well when the weather isn’t exactly perfect. And this old H&M dress is just one of those such pieces. I love the way this dress moves. Believe it or not, I wasn’t even trying to twirl in any of these photos…the dress… Read more »

dog christmas sweater

Shop the look: I’m showing off my Christmas outfit a few days early, because when Christmas actually hits…there won’t be any time for photos. Haha. My husband and I both come from divorced/remarried families, so we have roughly 50 million Christmas events to attend in 2 days. And unfortunately it doesn’t look much like Christmas at the moment! These photos were taken at my parent’s house, which is a few hours south of my grandparents…and they have zero snow at… Read more »

Panda outfit

Shop the look: Could there be a better combination than panda prints and tulle? I think not! Haha. My panda print collection is really on a roll with my most recent purchase of panda tights. I mean, how could I resist?. These tights from ModCloth are adorable and go perfectly with my panda top and panda flats. However, they come in “one size fits all,” and I can hardly get them on they’re so small. I’m 5’5″ I don’t normally… Read more »

fall outfit

Shop the look: I am hanging on to the remnants of fall for dear life. I am not ready to accept that the holidays are just weeks from getting underway, and Christmas everything is already donning store shelves. I’m a bit of a Scrooge, for many reasons…but I’ll save that rant for another time. It is still weirdly warm and mild here on the East Coast. (Did you notice my short sleeves? Haha.) So, it’s even harder to accept that… Read more »

fall outfit 2

Shop the look: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”….sorry, not exactly what this post is about. However, this outfit was worn in two very different cities in one week! It’s actually been worn a total of three times in the last week! Once was in Dallas, and the rest were back in Princeton. (Get the title now? Gosh, I’m clever. Haha.) The reason I’ve been wearing this outfit so much in Jersey is because… Read more »

About a month ago I did my first wishlist post, and I am very happy to report, that I purchased absolutely none of the items off of it (yet)! So, I’m going to give this another go… seeing as my willpower is stronger than I thought, and you guys didn’t seem to mind reading the last one. Plus, I had a blast dreaming about all the pretty clothing I would like to own one day. So here, we go again!… Read more »

Demon TZ

Shop the look: Can you tell how much fun I was having while wearing this scarf? From the moment I put it on I felt the need to pretend I was a butterfly, and also make airplane sounds because it seemed appropriate. Haha. (And what sounds do butterflies make anyways?) The detail that is on this Demon TZ scarf is astonishing. The name of the scarf is “Husky in Mirror,” which is appropriately named considering the husky faces woven into… Read more »

Machi footwear

Shop the look: Deciding what to wear to my first New York Fashion Week stressed me out for a moment, to be honest. I worried I wouldn’t be “trendy” enough for the uber fashionable crowd, and that my dresses wouldn’t be the right style for such an event. It kind of felt like the first day at a new school, where you know no one… and chances are everyone will be sizing you up and judging you. So, I texted… Read more »

Meeting Jen

This is a particularly special post for me because I was able to meet one of my favorite bloggers in person when I was in Boston! Remember Featured Fashionista Jen? Yep, that’s her in these photos! She and her husband were kind enough to invite us out to lunch while we were in the city. We had met up at Pho Basil, which is a yummy Vietnamese/Thai restaurant on Massachusetts Ave. And then we had a little photo shoot after… 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 »

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 »
