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 »

angel sanchez ss16

My first New York Fashion Week show is in the books! I had the opportunity to see the Angel Sanchez spring/summer 2016 collection, and it was absolutely amazing. I’m not even going to try and play it cool – I was in heaven and so excited I was able to get to see NYFW in person! (I’ll be on cloud nine for a while if you need me.) I’ll do my best to try and talk designers and fashion with… Read more »

WHBM Dress

Shop the look: This dress actually has a bit of an interesting story behind it. I had bought it a couple years ago for my cousin’s wedding in India. This was one of the only night’s I wore something other than a sari for the wedding (Hindu weddings last for days). And I had to perform a polka dance from my native land of Wisconsin in front of hundreds of wedding guests in India, who have never seen the, ah,… Read more »

Inner Fairy Princess tulle skirt

All photos in this post are courtesy of Sadie Cheyenne Photography. Shop the look: There are days where it is completely necessary to add a little whimsy and sparkle, and let your inner fairy princess run free. For days like this, tulle skirts and twinkly floral heels are just what the fairy godmother ordered. But before I tell you all just how wonderful my fairytale skirt and magical heels are, I really want to tell you about these photos. They… Read more »

#ifchic24

A few weeks ago I told you all about how I was able to get designer clothes for free during the #ifchic24 event. I was so excited that many of my readers participated in August’s #ifchic24 event! A couple of my readers had even shared photos of their purchases with me…and I thought it would be fun to feature their #ifchic24 purchases on my blog, to show off some more of the really awesome designer goodies you can get by… Read more »

AMI Clubwear swimsuit

Shop the look: I know summer is sadly coming to an end, and many fashionistas are already donning their cardigans and boots. However, I am almost never one of those bloggers who is ahead of the curve when it comes to seasonal dressing. This is generally because wherever I happen to be living did not get the memo that the seasons are switching. Going into summer? Eh, we’ll have a snow storm and below freezing temperatures. Going into fall? How… 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 »

How to Tie a Scarf

Thank you to Demon TZ for sponsoring this video. This is my first video tutorial for my blog! I’m not going to lie, it’s far more nerve-racking to upload a video of myself talking, than it is to post my outfit photos. I have been taking my sweet time uploading this little tutorial. But one of my goals for my next year of blogging is to start making videos to feature on my blog – to spice things up a… Read more »

AMI Clubwear Maxi Dress

Shop the look: Vacation was incredible! My husband and I spent last week exploring parts of Cape Cod and then a couple days in Boston – I can’t believe it’s already over. We had so many incredible adventures, from shark cage diving and whale watching, to meeting one of my favorite bloggers in person, to going to my first Red Sox game! There’ll be blog posts on all of those experiences soon, but many of them include video. (Shark cage… 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 »

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 a big confidence booster!) I’m still in disbelief that… Read more »

#ifchic24

I promised to tell you today how you can get designer clothing for free…so, I’m about to let you in on the secret! The clothing site, ifchic, holds an event each month on the 24th where you can spend your “ifchic coins” toward their fabulous designer clothing! Ifchic features trends on their site from both established and emerging designers. And how do you get ifchic coins? It’s really easy. You go to their site and look on different pages for… Read more »

eShakti dress

Shop the look: Sometimes there’s no room for grey. It’s either black or it’s white…or in the case of this outfit, it’s both. Pops of color had tried to make their way into this look, but it just wasn’t as striking as the simplicity of black and white. My dress is the result of my new found obsession with eShakti. (Click here to see my last post featuring a dress from them.) I love the idea of being able to… Read more »

Esther Williams swimsuit

Swimsuit | Hat | Sunglasses (Similar) 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 Williams 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… 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 »

Elephant shorts

Shop the look: Guess what? There are elephants on my shorts! How fun is that? I know I’ve said I hate wearing shorts, multiple times, but I’m starting to change my mind after living in these comfy elephant shorts for the weekend. Cloth shorts are seriously the answer to all my shorts problems! I went camping with my family last weekend, and comfort was the name of the game. (If you missed the photo gallery I put together on that,… Read more »

Black Swan skirt

There are some outfits that are worth waiting for – and I waited months before I finally broke out this one. I fell in love with this black swan skirt from Shein and have been waiting until the stars aligned before I wore it out. That happened when I received this gorgeous, silk scarf from Demon TZ. The two pieces matched perfectly, and it was just what I was looking for to complete this outfit. This is actually my first… Read more »

Tatyana Boutique fan skirt

By the time I was done taking photos for this post I could hardly stand up straight because I was so dizzy. Haha. But my husband was determined to get at least one photo of me twirling in this skirt where I didn’t look like I had just escaped from a mental institute. This skirt is a blast to twirl in, so I didn’t mind spinning around hundreds of times…even if I had an audience. I was in Central Park… Read more »

Hot Kiss dress

If asked what my favorite color is, I will always say pink. However, I don’t actually own all that much for pink clothing…or pink anything, really. I tend to gravitate more toward black clothing. Doesn’t exactly make sense, does it? So, when Hot Kiss Clothing was so kind as to send me this cute, pink (and incredibly soft) sundress… I realized this was something that needed to change – immediately. I started with picking up this hot pink shade of… Read more »

Floral skirt

Now, before I talk about why this outfit is particularly special to me and where you can find it… I have some exciting news to share about Have Clothes, Will Travel! I am coming up on my one year blogging anniversary! I can’t believe how far this site has come in just one year. And to say thank you to everyone who has followed along as I figured out my way in this crazy blogging world, and to maybe gain… Read more »

ModCloth Octopus top

Shop the look: As children (even as adults) when asked what our favorite sea creature is, the answer is almost always “dolphins” or “sharks” or “turtles.” I have yet to encounter someone who shares my obsession with octopuses. However, they must be out there…because there is now a wide variety of octopus clothing, accessories and home decor to choose from – much to my delight. For me, the octopus is quite majestic and mystical. Maybe it’s the tentacles, the black… Read more »

Modcloth skirt

Shop the look: The title of this outfit post makes it sound as though I went hiking through the African Safari or bungee jumping off a cliff. Which is a bit misleading, I will admit. In reality, I just went and had a beer and some pizza and then finally went to see Jurassic World (and absolutely loved it!). But this outfit does, for some reason, make me feel as though I could go hiking through the desert or rock… Read more »

Retro travel clothes

When it comes to traveling there is nothing more important than being comfortable – especially in the warm summer months. However, you don’t have to sacrifice style in the name of comfort. There are several things I like to keep in mind when dressing for summer travel: 1.) Comfortable shoes – I’m going to be walking all day! 2.) Make sure my armpits are exposed – nothing is worse than having a clingy shirt around my sweaty pits! 3.) Use… Read more »

I am available for online styling services, as well as in-person styling in Appleton, Wisconsin & Princeton, New Jersey. The shopping will come to you! Why should you hire me?

Shop the look: I can’t believe how fast summer is going! I feel as though I blinked and June was over…and it’s now the weekend of the 4th! Which of course means you need to be decked out in your best red, white and blue attire. I did an outfit post a few weeks ago on one of my favorite red, white and blue outfits. However, I had one more occasion to be patriotic for. This outfit was for Golfing… Read more »

This is an outfit I can’t take credit for putting together. My husband and friends all had a hand in this one. My husband had bought me this awesome Jump From Paper purse for my birthday, and then went shopping for this skirt and top, so, I would have an outfit to match my new little purse. (He’s a keeper!) My cousin, Mandie, and friend, Ashlee, both sent me links to these awesome heels I am wearing…they had immediately thought… Read more »
