Last Updated on August 21, 2019 Skirt (Similar here) | Top (Similar here) | Sneakers | Bag | Sunglasses (Similar) | Watch It took me long enough, but I’m finally embracing pattern & print mixing. I actually bought this striped top and floral skirt so I could wear them together! I did this last fall, and I’ve been patiently waiting all winter to break this outfit out. Then, the most miraculous thing happened…it stopped snowing in Moscow, and warmed up… Read more »

striped midi skirt ModCloth

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 Skirt (similar here) | Heels | Top (similar) | Sunglasses | Pin | Bag (similar) Another day another striped skirt! I am obsessed with all things black and white stripes right now. And I’m OK with this because black and white stripes are chic, versatile, and they won’t be going out of style. (I have a whole mess of striped tops to featured once the temps cool off too!) The structure of this skirt… Read more »

This skirt came along and swept me off my feet the moment I laid eyes on it…and it still makes my heart race when I see it in my closet…. Read more »

4 Ways to Style a White, Eyelet, Midi Skirt

Last Updated on June 7, 2019You asked, and I have delivered! Haha. A couple outfit posts ago I had featured this white, eyelet, midi skirt and realized it could certainly be made into an outfit remix post if there was enough interest. And the comments section has spoken! An outfit remix post must be made! (Thank you for the feedback everyone.) A white skirt is basically a blank canvas, you can style it any which way you choose. However, it’s… Read more »

They’re perfect for so many different occassions, and fortunately, there’s a plethora of online midi skirt options these days. Also, if you’ve been following my blog for a little while, you might have noticed I particularly have a printed midi skirt obsession. Anytime I’m doing any sort of online clothing shopping, I always find myself going right for the quirkiest of quirky printed midi… Read more »

Tatyana Fan Skirt

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 Click to shop: A few months ago I had lamented my pain at being separated from this fan skirt while it made its way from our apartment in Australia to our new apartment in Argentina. It took quite awhile, but it did make it! And I was very excited to have the chance to style it again so soon. I usually wait a little longer before featuring the same skirts and dresses, but I… Read more »

ModCloth Octopus Midi Skirt

Last Updated on November 4, 2019 Believe it or not, this outfit post was taken just 2 days before my previous outfit post (the one where I was all bundled up and the temps were below freezing). It was nearly 80 degrees Fahrenheit the day these photos were taken! I honestly didn’t need this pink cardigan, I just liked the way it looked. Haha. Argentina is certainly giving Wisconsin a run for its money for the title of wackiest weather!… Read more »

ModCloth Stylish Surprise

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 Click to shop: I have been patiently waiting for a blustery, frigid day to break out this darling midi skirt. Doesn’t that sound ridiculous? Actually looking forward to cold weather to test out a skirt? Ah well, what can I say, I do like the seasons. (Despite my complaints.) This skirt was one I had received in ModCloth’s last Stylish Surprise event. I’ve personally had some amazing luck in the apparel department for the… Read more »

Starry night skirt

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 Click to shop: Wahoo! The rest of our suitcases arrived safe and sound. No more living out of just one! (It honestly felt like Christmas morning when they were delivered, haha.) Which of course means I now have more clothing and more than 3 pairs of shoes to mix and match again. Phew! I was excited to be reunited with some of my quirkier pieces again…such as this The Starry Night skirt. It’s such… Read more »

Sydney shopping spree outfit

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 A couple of outfit posts ago I mentioned a sydney shopping spree I went on the night before I left Sydney, Australia. I had been pretty “good” until that night about my shopping while I was in Sydney, despite temptation lurking around every corner. I mean, I even lived within walking distance of the Pitt Street Mall, which is home to some very yummy restaurants and, most importantly, 600 different stores…including Kate Spade, Review… Read more »

ModCloth blouse

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 Oofta! This past month has certainly been an interesting one. Our move to Argentina has proved to be our most challenging one yet. Not that that is a bad thing. It just means there are new things to learn and adapt to. We’ve also traveled to a total of 3 continents in less than a month, haha. And, unfortunately, while I’m learning and adapting and traveling, creating brand spanking new blog material in Argentina… Read more »

team instinct outfit

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 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,… Read more »

shein metallic skirt

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 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… Read more »

shein floral maxi skirt

Last Updated on November 5, 2019 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… Read more »

Shein eyelet white midi skirt

Last Updated on July 2, 2019 Happy 2 Year Blogiversary to me! Yippee! This deserves a fun skirt, a bouquet of flowers and a good twirl! Haha. But wow! Where did the time go? It feels like it was just yesterday I was taking photos with nothing but my iPhone in a park in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and trying to figure out how to upload them to WordPress, haha. Thankfully, the photography department has improved a bit since then…and WordPress… Read more »

Makemechic midi skirt

Last Updated on June 7, 2019So, not to brag, but Links à la Mode is becoming a Sunday morning staple on my blog! Of course, it’s nice to have my work recognised, but it has also been a wonderful way to find new blogs to read. And I’m also very excited to see a couple new faces on Links à la Mode! Two of my favorite bloggers, Mona & Jen, both have posts featured this week! Yippee! (And if you’re… Read more »

makemechic midi skirt

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 Planning an outfit for an evening with a geisha is something I never thought in a million years I would have to think about. The only way you can even spend an evening with a geisha is if you know someone who knows the geisha and they introduce you. (And I know a total of zero people who are friends with a geisha.) However, I did a little digging and found a way to… Read more »

Last Updated on June 7, 2019I’m trying something a little different today, instead of a whole new outfit post… I’m taking a look at how I styled one of my favorite skirts, 4 different ways. I actually re-use my dresses and skirts pretty frequently on my blog, but I’ve always tried to not call too much attention to it. For some reason, it made me feel like a “bad blogger” to not have a brand-spanking new outfit each time I… Read more »

Romwe black midi skirt

Last Updated on June 7, 2019 Skirt (Similar) | Heels (Similar) | Scarf | Top | Sunglasses | Earrings I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We laid low for most of it because I had a cold and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” came out on Amazon, so I had to watch it three more times, of course. (It makes my heart so happy!) However, we did get out of the house for one special occasion this weekend. It… Read more »

Shein swan skirt

Last Updated on June 6, 2019 Shop the look:   As you may have noticed, I have a bit of an addiction. I can’t stop wearing midi skirts…especially midi skirts from Shein. Seriously, if I had to pick one outfit to wear for the rest of my life, it would involve a formfitting top and this black swan midi skirt. I would choose this one above the rest, just because it is the most unique out of all my skirts…and… Read more »

Shein Floral Midi skirt

Last Updated on June 6, 2019 Shop the look: Inspiration can come from the most unlikely places. And such was the case with this outfit. I had spent the majority of last week sick and in bed with the plague (at least that’s what I think it was)…and because of this, I managed to watch the entire season of American Horror Story: Coven. I expected to enjoy the series, but I didn’t expect to find so much style inspiration! Every… Read more »

Black Swan skirt

Last Updated on June 5, 2019 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… Read more »

sheinside skirt

Last Updated on June 5, 2019 Shop the look: This outfit had indeed caught the eye of many of the people I encountered while wearing it. Some folks were sneaky about their glances, while others were openly gaping…trying to figure out what kind of event I was dressed for (at least that’s what I think they were thinking). The looks could have something to do with my enormous sun hat or brightly colored midi skirt… or maybe it’s because I… Read more »
