How to Dress Conservatively Yet Stylishly for Traveling in Jordan

As a foreign woman (or man) traveling in Jordan, it’s important to give some thought to how you dress. As was the case in Egypt, Jordan is also a mostly Muslim country where dressing conservatively is important. Now, nothing terrible will happen if you don’t follow these clothing “rules.” However, as a tourist, I think it’s important to respect the culture and customs of the country you are visiting. So, offending the people of the country I am in is… Read more »

Amman, Jordan is a great home base for taking day trips. The obvious day trips are, of course, Petra and the Dead Sea. However, northern Jordan is filled with rich history and beautiful landscapes too! If you have enough time in your Jordan itinerary, I highly suggest visiting northern Jordan as well. This post will break down what to see in the northern part of Jordan at a relatively relaxed pace and some suggestions for how you can do this… Read more »

Styling Minnetonka Moccasins from a Travel Outfit to Daily Wear

Minnetonka Moccasins is a shoe company I’ve been a fan of ever since I was a little girl. I’ll never forget when my mom bought me my first pair of Minnetonka Moccasins…I was around 7 or 8 years old. She had taken me to a family-owned shoe store in Minocqua, Wisconsin just before school started, so I could pick out a pair for the new school year. I was so excited! I wore those moccasins everywhere! And when I wore… Read more »

Pattern & Print Mixing – How to Wear Polka Dots & Florals Together

Another round of pattern and print mixing here on Have Clothes, Will Travel featuring my favorite floral midi skirt! This time I’m sharing how to mix polka dots and florals. This is an outfit I put together for a date night with my husband at a restaurant we literally live on top of, haha. It’s always busy and rather pricey.

Trying Trends - My Thoughts on Faux Leather Leggings & Athleisure

I am not the first to try a new trend, I usually sit back for a couple years and see what happens before I add any of the current trending pieces to my wardrobe. Faux leather leggings and athleisure are two looks that have been going strong for a while now. However, if it wasn’t for my friends over at Femme Luxe sending me these pieces, I don’t think I ever would have given them a shot! So, without further… Read more »

pyramids tips

Marriott Mena House Review

Have you ever dreamed of being able to see the Pyramids from your bedroom window? Well, you’re in luck. Marriott Mena House Hotel offers rooms with exactly those views + it’s located in a very secure (almost to a fault) and luxurious compound. The Marriott Mena House happened to be the only hotel we stayed at the entire time we were in Egypt. (The rest of the time we were on our Nile River Cruise.) It’s in a fantastic location… Read more »

Behind the Scenes of My Pyramids of Giza Photos

Egypt is a destination that is at the top of many adventurer’s bucket lists. However, it’s also a destination that many people are wary of visiting, given the political turmoil and terrorist attacks it has, unfortunately, experienced over the years. Every destination I travel to, though, comes with the same barrage of questions… “Is it safe there?! I saw this and that on the news…” “Should Americans even travel there?!” “Why would you want to go there?” etc. etc. I… Read more »

Nile River Cruise Revew The Amwaj Living stone Nile Cruise

Taking this Nile River Cruise in Egypt marked my first cruise experience. I had always vehemently protested being trapped on a boat with a bunch of people and unable to explore a foreign land at my own pace. However, cruising the Nile River had piqued my interest. It held a novelty factor, being the highway of the Ancient Egyptians and all…and everything I had read about it was quite positive. It seemed this wasn’t “a normal cruise experience.” So, after… Read more »

How to Pack for a Backpacking Trip

Guest post by Stuart Cooke It’s a wonderful sense of liberation to know that everything you have is packed in one bag, and that’s it for the next however many weeks or months… and you may not know exactly where you’re going or what you’ll be doing. However, packing for a backpacking trip can be as much about mental preparation as it is about packing absolutely the right stuff. I once knew an eccentric who set off on a long-distance… Read more »

Hieroglyphics necklace

Egypt is one of the first countries I’ve visited that I was REALLY interested in purchasing souvenirs from. This has a bit to do with the fact that it’s been at the top of my bucket list for decades, but mostly because I actually have a home to put souvenirs in, now. (Yay, for no longer being homeless!) The vast majority of these souvenirs are easy to pack, though! That being said, I didn’t purchase all 10 of these while… Read more »

Aviator Slim Skinny Fit Travel Jeans Review (Dark Indigo)

When it comes to traveling, comfort is the name of the game. Jeans do not normally fall into comfortable travel attire for me. They’re too restricting and don’t breathe well enough for my preference. So, when Aviator reached out to me with a pair of jeans that are designed specifically for traveling – I was very intrigued, but also a little skeptical. Jeans are just not my go-to travel bottoms. But, they certainly look nicer than my old hiking pants!… Read more »

The Timex Variety Watch for Women plays into this requirement perfectly for me. It is not only comfortable to wear, but it also looks great for a variety of events! And, as its name… Read more »

More Pyramids Near Cairo - Saqqara (Djoser’s Step Pyramid) + Ancient City of Memphis

The Great Pyramids of Giza are always what comes to mind when we think of pyramids near Cairo, Egypt. However, these aren’t the only pyramids near Cairo. In fact, the world’s oldest pyramid is located not far from Cairo! (And no, it isn’t the Great Pyramid of Giza.) This post will explain, plus I’ll share a little bit about the Ancient City of Memphis and how you can tour all of these places in less than a day! More Pyramids… Read more »

Visiting the Pyramids of Giza – 10 Tips to Know Before You Go

Living in a world of expertly cropped photos and Instagram filters can sometimes make a place look a little more glamorous and perfect than it actually is. And after the feedback I received on my “behind the scenes” post from Cappadocia, I thought it would be a good idea to continue doing posts like this for each place I visit. Now, don’t get me wrong, seeing the Pyramids of Giza is absolutely amazing and a dream come true to me,… Read more »

What I Wore to the Pyramids of Giza

I debated for a long time about what to wear to the Pyramids of Giza. I wanted to be both comfortable and stylish for this adventure, as well as modest (Egypt is a predominately Muslim country). I also knew there was a chance I’d be riding a camel before the day was over… Now, this outfit was by no means perfect for this day! However, I am happy enough with how it worked out. The Dress I ended up liking… Read more »

Memphis Tours Review

Visiting the Pyramids of Giza has been at the top of my bucket list since I was old enough to read. Needless to say, this experience had some pretty high expectations for me! Of course, with something you have been dreaming about for 20ish years, it’s hard to not be a bit disappointed when it finally happens. (These were some pretty impossible standards to live up to!) The day of my pyramids adventure started off disastrously and never fully recovered…. Read more »

3 Tips for Embracing Sustainable Shopping Abroad

Written by Pauline Davis Affordable fashion and cheaper clothing is something of a marvel in the modern age, and there are so many ways to make clothes even cheaper that it’s no wonder we are often spoiled for choice. However, in its present form (globally speaking) the fashion industry isn’t sustainable, and unless we start thinking about it now, we won’t be able to keep living this way. The numbers speak for themselves. Cotton, the backbone of the fabric world,… Read more »
