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.

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 »

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!

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. However, it wasn’t until now that I finally took the plunge. I had talked myself out of it repeatedly because I really didn’t NEED another skirt. However, I’ve been mentally… Read more »

4 Ways to Style a White, Eyelet, Midi Skirt

You 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 nice to have a little… Read more »

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 »

Shein top and ModCloth cat bag

Click to shop: It’s really been fun trying to dress for all the seasons this week, haha. 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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 Maxi dress

Shop the look: The first day I wore this dress, my husband loved it. Not only did he think it looked cool, but he also couldn’t stop laughing because I had a woman sneakily trying to photograph this dress while we were walking to dinner. She was pretty sneaky, as I didn’t notice until my husband pointed it out. I should’ve turned around and just told her where it was from. Alas, introversion got the best of me, though. (I… Read more »

shein blazer

Shop the look: Just as we were about to leave for the day, my husband looked at me and said, “You look too expensive to be standing next to me! Should I change?” As he was wearing jeans and a t-shirt. I laughed and told him he looked great…and we went about our day. But that made me think about this outfit a little harder. If you took the accessories out of the equation, this outfit cost just under $70…. Read more »

Shein Polka dot dress

As you’re reading this post, I will be flying somewhere over the Pacific Ocean on my way to our new home Sydney, Australia! That is crazy to think. Especially since we’ve been trying to move to Australia for the past 4 years…it really doesn’t feel like it’s happening now. So, this will be my last outfit post from Japan. I do have a few travel posts from Tokyo that I will publish next week (including a post about what surprised… Read more »

Crop top and maxi skirt

Would you looks at that…two crop tops in one summer! Haha. Boy oh boy, I’m coming around to this trend! Not because I actually want to be showing my midsection off, I just really like the way this style of top looks with my high-waisted bottoms. (I mean can you even tell this is a crop top with the skirt I’m wearing?) And on warm days, it’s comfier than tucking a shirt into my bottoms. This is another crop top… Read more »

Shein black dress

Baseball is America’s favorite pastime…but I think it just might be Japan’s favorite pastime too! I went to my first Japanese baseball game yesterday, and it was unlike anything I had experienced at home. The level of excitement and fan participation was incredible! The only sporting event I’ve experienced that has even come close to this was a Badger Game on Halloween. (A reference for my fellow Wisconsinites, sorry everyone else!). The Food & Beverages And what’s a ball game… Read more »

outdoor nature backdrop for photography

Crop Top c/o* | Shorts | Sandals | Sunglasses (similar) | Bag (similar) I have been working up the courage to wear a crop top for years now…and I’ve finally taken the plunge! But thanks to my lovely high-waisted shorts and midi skirt collection that I’ve been adding to over the years… I don’t actually have to show skin unless I want to. As you can see with this outfit, I’m not really showing my midriff, unless I’m reaching for… Read more »

GlassesShop Eyeglasses

I’m wearing glasses for the first time in my outfit post history! Haha. And yes, they are prescription…I’m actually very nearsighted. I usually wear contacts and only wear glasses when I first wake up and just before I go to bed. This is mainly because the glasses that I had were from when I first found out I needed them way back in 7th grade! So, they are tiny frames and no longer the right prescription (my eyesight continues to… Read more »

Shein blue polka dot dress

Dress (Similar) | Sandals | Bag | Necklace | Brooch I have been on quite the polka dot kick lately. (Ok, I am always on a polka dot kick!) I think I’ve worn polka dots in every outfit post I’ve done for the past three weeks. Haha. I broke this polka dot dress from Shein out this weekend when I visited our local zoo! The NEW Zoo in Suamico is awesome for so many reasons. I’ll do a separate post… Read more »
