Petra what to wear

When planning for our trip to Petra, I spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out what to wear for this day of exploring in Jordan. I was seeing a lot of extremes when I was Googling around for blog posts on the subject – sometimes the post would feature the lovely lady in a gorgeous dress or skirt with sneakers or sandals and other posts were telling me to wear my best hiking gear! So, this post… Read more »

My 5 Year Blogiversary + Giveaway

*Enter to win my $100 Nordstrom gift card giveaway at the end of the blog post. 5 years old! Can you believe it? My blog is old enough to go to Kindergarten, now! To be perfectly honest, too…I didn’t actually publish this post on my real “blogiversary.” It’s on August 15th. However, these last couple weeks have been bonkers busy – but in the best possible way. And one of the things I’m working on this blogging year is to… Read more »

Scouring the internet for cute novelty handbags is one of my favorite pastimes. Sometimes, just knowing that they are out there makes me happy. And, sometimes, I can’t help myself and buy them allll! If you’re new to my blog, I invite you to check out my favorite “faux camera bag” in this post and my 2D Jump From Paper bag in this post. I also am the proud owner of a ladybug purse, ice cream cone purse, studded lips… Read more »

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

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! The reason you wouldn’t want to wear a brightly colored swimsuit…or ya know, a red and white swimsuit, is because of the high salt content in the Dead Sea. It’s one… Read more »

What to Wear for a Day of Exploring Madaba, Mount Nebo & the Dead Sea in Jordan

Wondering what to wear for a day of exploring near the Dead Sea in Jordan? This post is here to help! Deciding what to wear for this day of exploring was a bit tricky, as I still wanted to be comfortable and dressed conservatively (more info on how to dress appropriately in Jordan as a woman here), but I wanted something that could also double as a coverup at the beach after we were done floating in the Dead Sea….

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 appreciated. 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 »

Every-Pretty Dress Review (V Neck Fit and Flare Party Dress)

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. Personally, I was rather skeptical. The website seemed like any other overseas clothing company that deals with lower quality clothing. However, I’ve had great luck ordering from different overseas companies in the past… So, I decided to give it a go! This post will be my honest review of the clothing pieces I received from… Read more »

It’s also incredibly comfortable and versatile (I’m styling it with both heels and sandals in this post). However, the best part of this dress is that it HAS POCKETS. I repeat, IT HAS POCKETS. A Stylish & Packable Travel Dress (With Pockets!) by Karina Dresses This is another fantastic dress made by my… 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. So, we’ve only eaten here a few times…and have never gotten a table on their patio. However, a lot of… Read more »

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 »

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 »

Styling a Timex Variety Watch from a Travel Outfit to a Formal Event

When it comes to accessories for traveling, I am all about versatility. If it’s something that is comfortable to wear on a plane but also looks nice enough to wear to a fancy dinner that night – you can bet it’s coming along on my adventures! 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 »

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 »

Outfit idea for Abu Simbel

Wondering what to wear for visiting Abu Simbel? This post explains! If you’ve been following along with my Egypt outfit posts, you’ll know the formula for dressing for these sights. However, Abu Simbel does have an extra element to take into account. You’ll be in the hot sun, like anywhere else in Egypt, and, as a woman, it’s a good idea to dress modestly. For a trip to Abu Simbel, though, you’ll like be riding in a car for around… Read more »

What to Wear in Aswan (for the Ladies)

Wondering what to wear for your trip to Aswan, Egypt? This post will explain! Aswan, like most cities in Egypt, is incredibly HOT and filled with amazing places to see. The only difference in Aswan is, thankfully, it is a bit breezier here. (How else are you supposed to sail the feluccas?) So, as you’ve probably noticed by now – the theme of dressing in Egypt is to be comfortable but also covered. Again, Egypt’s population is mainly Muslim, so… Read more »

The Perfect Travel Dress

It has taken me 6 years of nearly nonstop traveling to finally find the perfect travel dress! (That’s ridiculous, I am well aware.) However, good things come to those who wait. Am I right? This dress is wrinkle-resistant, comfortable, incredibly versatile and can be easily packed into whatever kind of luggage you are using! It is also quite a classic cut and print, in my opinion. Oh, and it’s made in the USA! I am SO hooked. The Perfect Travel… Read more »

What I Wore for Visiting Edfu & Kom Ombo

Wondering what to wear when visiting Edfu & Kom Ombo in Egypt? This post will explain! Dress | Hat (Similar here & here) | Sandals | Scarf | Sunglasses | Watch This was my outfit for a day of exploring temples in Edfu and Kom Ombo. These particular photos were taken in Edfu, though. Both of these destinations required some walking (and there was a few hours of riding on our Nile River cruise in between them), and both destinations… Read more »

Nile River Cruise Outfit Idea

Embarking on a Nile Cruise in Egypt and not sure what to wear? Here is one Nile River Cruise outfit idea! Dress | Sandals | Necklace | Sunglasses During our Egyptian adventure, we had booked 4 nights on a Nile Cruise out of Luxor that sailed to Aswan. I have never been on a cruise until this point. And that being said, I do understand this cruise is not what cruises are typically like. This was a small boat that… Read more »

Floral Maxi Dress for the Valley of the Kings

It has taken me far too long to figure out to dress appropriately for the heat. Fortunately, by the time I traveled to Luxor, Egypt…I had FINALLY figured out the formula for dressing comfortably yet stylishly for a day of suffocating heat. The heat in Luxor is no joke. We were there during SPRING, and most days were already soaring above 100 degrees Fahrenheit and without a cloud in the sky! (For this day we were specifically exploring the Valley… Read more »

"The Mummy" Brendan Fraser/Rick O'Connell Inspired Outfit for Egypt

An outfit I wore in Luxor, Egypt inspired by Brendan Fraser’s character, Rick O’Connell, in the movie “The Mummy.” Shirt (Similar) | Pants (On sale!) | Scarf (Similar) | Watch | Sandals   Growing up, I was absolutely obsessed with the movie, “The Mummy.” (Let’s be real, it’s still one of my favorite movies.) I think I’ve watched it at least 10 thousand times. (I probably watched it even more than Star Wars.) While getting ready for my trip to… Read more »

What I Wore to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo

Wondering what to wear to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo? This post will explain! Dress c/o* | Flip Flops c/o* | Scarf | Earrings As I’m sure you can tell, these photos weren’t actually taken at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. I did, however, wear this outfit to the museum – I promise! The reason I didn’t have any photos of the outfit at the museum was because I was pretty lazy that day, and if you read my post… Read more »

Great Pyramids of Giza

Dress | Sandals | Cami | Necklace | Bracelet Here we go! I’m kicking off my Egypt blog series with my first outfit from the trip. I hope everyone is cool with maxi dresses and maxi skirts…because that’s what the vast majority of my future outfit posts will consistent of. Egypt is a predominately Muslim country, and it’s considered polite to not show much skin (no knees, shoulders or cleavage). This outfit is actually the most revealing one I had… Read more »
