The sun is shining, the clouds are carefree, and it’s another day of life we’ve been given!
I’m excited to announce that I have the opportunity to work with ModCloth’s “Uniquely You” campaign today! Seeing the featured “Bouquet of the Season” dress (specifically the “Bright Over Here” style) immediately conjured images of traveling to far off places and stories as such.
Oh, what marvelous sights to see –
from slumbering sand dunes
to lush valleys
to cerulean waves dancing to the current!
Oh, what lovely landmarks to visit –
whether one traverses to places only in the imagination
or one returns to the trusty home, the keeper of fond memories!
Oh, reader, oh the places you’ll go –
In this dress, of course!

Some clothing items simply have memories attached to them that others don’t, and it makes it harder to part with sometimes. Until the spring cleaning bug attacks… and then even that nostalgia can’t save them. Heh. But if I were to own this dress, it would never retire! Here’s how I would style this beauty, and it’s crazy wonderful how all of the pieces complement this spring theme of, “Oh, the places you’ll go!”

How gorgeous is this hat? The black ribbon and trim make this a smart straw sun hat. Doesn’t it somehow exude an aura of an updated bonnet? I can imagine standing on a boat’s prow, wind whistling around my ears with this hat while the dress sways to the breeze. Or even trudging through a desert with it to ward off the scorching heat. Or even keeping some of the rain patter off the dress and protecting your face while exploring Rome!

How better to complement the dress and bring a fresh array of colors? I adore studs because they’re so versatile, easy to pack, and add a splash of delightful in every outfit! These scream adventure in a sweet way, and the soft corals/pinks bring out the striking blues of the dress. What a way to work as a team!

Isn’t this just the neatest? Not only can you have the time from where you started your travels, but you can also easily glance for the time at your present location! Of course, it might not make you happy as you see the time difference (and thus the jetlag that you’re presumably feeling), but what a nifty metal accessory to add interest to the dress?

And obviously, a stylin’ jetsetter likes to layer so she doesn’t have too many items in her luggage! I love how it works so well with the clock necklace and displays (literally!) the world of possibilities!
Celestial Chateau Makeup Bag // Modcloth.com
If the sky is the limit, you can’t say no to the perfect accessory for your dress! The rich blue hue matches the blue color scheme, and the detailing matches our accessories! If you need to take only a few things, might as well turn this makeup bag into a clutch and run out the door! Make some new memories with this conversation piece, with your arms relaxing and allowing the dress to shine as you chat. Where are you going to be this time? : )
Inherent Initiative Bag // Modcloth.com
This describes you, doesn’t it? I adore the detailing on this satchel. The natural brown contrast the pure white flap, but evokes the outdoors when juxtaposed with the lovely blue flower print of the star item! Throw in all the travel essentials and truly, oh the places you’ll go!
Ambrosia to the Occasion Heel // Modcloth.com
Have you heard the saying, “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!”? Well, it’s also true that “if your feet ain’t happy, ain’t no day happy!” and we all know it! That’s why these coral shoes are such winners – the coral and blue meld together beautifully, and the strap hits just below the ankle, elongating the legs and making your feet want to dance. You’ll be doing a jig across the continents in this daring duo!
Bedside Dream Journal // Modcloth.com
And when all is said and done,
When the adventures have been had,
the strangers met,
the experiences made,
the food eaten,
and the places explored,
you will come back home –
the better for the journey,
and honestly, tired.
Record those dreams and memories in a journal that will spur other lovely dreams that a good night’s rest and a fresh new morning will bring.
And hanging there,
freshly laundered and waiting,
will be your “Bright over Here!” dress –
waiting to accompany you once more.
And one day, should you ever want another travel companion, ModCloth offers an immense selection of lovely dresses for your perusing!
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
