Beautiful & Warm Coat for Winter Adventures in Wisconsin 

Last Updated on November 9, 2019 When traveling (or living) in the Midwest in winter, a warm coat is always a must – bonus points if it looks nice and not marshmallow-like!

I had originally pictured wearing this coat against a beautiful backdrop of fall foliage… however, this is Wisconsin, where Mother Nature does whatever she darn well… Read more »

Review of Aviator's Merino Wool Travel T-Shirt

Last Updated on October 16, 2019I’m testing out the Aviator Merino Wool Travel T-Shirt in today’s post. When it comes to travel clothing, I am always intrigued by any company that says their clothes are wrinkle-free and moisture-wicking. I hate ironing my clothes, even if I’m not traveling. Oh, and when I’m in an airport… I sweat profusely, even in the middle of winter (thanks to usually running to catch connecting flights in O’Hare and lugging around a heavy backpack… Read more »

What to wear in Azerbaijan

Last Updated on October 2, 2019 Ok, so what I am wearing in this post was NOT an ideal outfit for visiting the Gobustan National Park and Mud Volcanoes outside of Baku, Azerbaijan. In theory, this outfit should have been OK. It’s comfortable. My dress is 100% cotton and breathes very well. And I’ve worn these sandals on countless adventures because they’re so easy to walk in. However, in practice, this outfit just wasn’t the greatest! Here’s why… My Sandals… Read more »

What I Wore to Float in the Dead Sea (Jordan)

Last Updated on October 10, 2019 I took a risk with what I wore to float in the Dead Sea while we were in Jordan. If you remember my blog post about the Dead Sea from when we were in Israel, you’ll know that wearing such a light-colored or brightly colored swimsuit is risky business!

Last Updated on August 24, 2019 I recently had the opportunity to try a new-to-me clothing website called Ever-Pretty. They sent me two dresses to try for this Ever-Pretty dress review.
