What is sizing like?” So, for today’s post, I thought it might be helpful to make a post featuring my tips for having a successful shopping experience on Shein, plus the clothes I’ve ordered from them over the… Read more »

Femme Luxe Review

I recently had the opportunity to try 4 different pieces of clothing from online retailer Femme Luxe. I was rather skeptical at first, the website seemed a little sketchy. However, I’ve had great luck ordering from some overseas companies who have rather “sketchy” websites. So, I decided to give it a go! This post will be my honest opinion of the clothing pieces I received – but please note, I have only worn each item of clothing for a short… Read more »

Comfy, Cosy & Chic Outfit

Sweater c/o* | Boots | Jeans | Bag | Necklace | Earrings | Sunglasses Golly, would you look at that…an outfit post! It’s been a while.

Now, I’m… Read more »

Shein White Cape

Cape c/o* | Boots c/o* (similar) | Bag | Jeans | Sunglasses c/o* | Necklace (similar) While capes often bring to mind images of Superman and Batman, you don’t have to be able to fly or drive a Batmobile to rock one this fall.

Stylish & Comfortable Exploring Outfit

Dress c/o* | Bag | Sandals (similar) | Sunglasses (similar) | Earrings It’s certainly taken me long enough to figure out, but I’m getting much better at putting together exploring outfits that are both comfortable yet cute looking. It’s really not too difficult either! The formula basically comes down to having a dress that breathes well (you can sweat in it all day and still be comfortable), a comfortable pair of walking shoes/sandals that are versatile and also stylish, a… Read more »

Shein floral sweatshirt & ModCloth floral skirt

Skirt | Pullover c/o* | Flats | Bag (different color) | Sunglasses (similar) Bring on the florals! Haha. I wear florals all year long, but this time of year is just such an opportune time to take this print to the max. I’ve been coveting this floral skirt for YEARS.

Shein floral maxi dress for fall

Click to shop: Styling a floral maxi dress for fall is much easier than it sounds. Actually, styling any dress for cooler weather is possible. The key is adding layers. Whether it be a cardigan and tights or jean jacket and scarf, it all comes down to layers! And I know, I know, it’s not fall in Argentina, but just let me pretend. Haha. It kills me that there aren’t any changing leaves or pumpkins in October! But we did… Read more »

Asian Eye scarf + Shein eyelet skirt

Skirt | Heels | Cardigan (Similar) | Scarf c/o* After all my casual exploring/traveling outfits, it sure felt good to break out a fun, girly outfit for today!

Shein top and ModCloth cat bag

My last outfit post was all about spring, and then the temps dipped back down to make it perfect to break out my fall/winter wardrobe again…all in the same weekend. And while I’m generally a fan of wearing vintage inspired dresses or skirts on the weekend, this past weekend I was all about jeans and silky tops. The top featured in this post… Read more »

VIPMEshop cardigan & Judy Blue Jeans

Click to shop: Floral prints work great no matter what time of year it is, in my opinion. However, we always tend to gravitate toward them a bit more during spring. (Insert Devil Wears Prada quote: “Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking.”) But, hey…Why not match our surroundings? Spring has sprung in Argentina, and much to my allergies dismay, everything is blooming! It is really beautiful, though. (Flower pics at the end of the post!) So, I decided to break out my… Read more »

shein floral button maxi dress

Click to shop: My trip back to my home state of Wisconsin was just what I needed. The balmy summer days and time with family and friends does the soul good….as does a little wildflower picking. Actually, technically, I believe these are weeds, haha. But nonetheless, I’ve always thought “Queen Anne’s lace” was pretty, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Right? And for such occasions, one needs the perfect dress! My little venture into bodycon dresses was… Read more »

Anytime I’m doing any sort of online clothing shopping, I always find myself going right for the quirkiest of quirky printed midi skirts! So, today’s post is… Read more »

Shein floral cropped jacket

Click to shop: If you’ve been following along on my social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.) you may have noticed I was really excited to order another pair of glasses! I had featured a pair from GlassesShop.com in this post here. And while I still love wearing them, they fit a little wonky now thanks to falling asleep with them on during a flight…and smashing my face into the window next to me. (Whoops!) But I now have another pair… Read more »

Shein ruffle sleeves white top

The only kind of drama I like – dramatic sleeves! And this my first outfit post from Rosario! I do still have travel posts left from New Zealand, but I wanted to break this week up a bit and not go too travel crazy. So, here’s a little outfit post to spice things up. I’m always a bit late to join the party when it comes to trends, but I do LOVE the dramatic sleeves trend that has been going… Read more »

Review Australia

Ok, let me start off by saying I’m not here to start a war or tell you not to shop at ModCloth. However, after the news broke that ModCloth was bought out by Jet.com and Walmart, I’ve been getting this question pretty frequently, “What other online stores are out there like ModCloth?” So, I figured putting together a list of some websites that are similar to ModCloth might be useful! Though I still like ModCloth, I’ve personally started looking at… Read more »

shein black and white high waisted shorts

Shop the look: Ok, admittedly, in today’s day and age, these shorts aren’t all that short. They feel short to me….and for some reason, I can’t get that song “Short Shorts” by The Royal Teens out of my head this week, haha. But hey! At least my butt cheeks are covered, haha. And oh my goodness gracious! These are the most comfortable pair of shorts I now own – hands down. They are baggy in all the right places and… Read more »

team instinct outfit

Shop the look:   I know what you’re probably thinking…”Come on! Wasn’t the Pokémon Go craze going on months ago? Why are you bringing it up again?” And that, my friends, is because this weekend Niantic released the “Gen 2” Pokémon. So, there’s a whole bunch of adorable new Pokémon to catch! And Pokémon fans are quite excited! I never really stopped playing the game. My husband and I both enjoy it. But, recently, we weren’t playing as much as… Read more »

shein metallic skirt

shein metallic skirt

Shop the look: Look at me go! I am on a roll with these trends! Haha. Although, again, I’m a bit behind with this one. Metallic skirts were all the rage for the holidays, and while this is a trend that does appear to still be going strong…I do see why they were so popular around the holidays. I mean, sparkly and shimmery is perfect for that time of year! But it can still work for the rest of the… Read more »

shein floral maxi skirt

Shop the look: I think I am officially at the age where it’s becoming acceptable to forget how old I am. Not that I’m implying I’m super old…I just kind of feel after the age of 21 (for us folks in the United States at least), age is just a number and doesn’t really matter all that much anymore. I honestly had to think about it for a moment when everyone asked how old I was turning this year, haha…. Read more »
