as many of you know, i am a newly inducted army wife. and one of my welcoming gifts was a move across the world to south korea. thank you army, you’re too kind.
the challenges one faces when adapting to moving in with your spouse for the first time were only heightened with challenges faced in a new country, where i didn’t know the language and had no familiarity.
not to mention, had no idea where to shop. as newlyweds, we sold off most of our belongings so we could start fresh together. south korea threw us for quite the curveball when we showed up to an empty apartment, empty handed.
through trial and sometimes tribulation i found some of the best american comforts to shop from that yes, deliver to APO/FPO/DPO. for all those that don’t know what APO/FPO/DPO is [ i know i didn’t until it magically appeared in my address,] you can disregard the mumbo jumbo and still find some of my favorite retailers below. if any of you that are locked into an APO/FPO/DPO address have a positive experience with any retailers not found below, please add them to the comments and i will continue to update this list. ps, if the writing is in pink, you can click on it to shop that retailer directly.
you can always keep up with sales and promotions for these retailers and many others by joining our facebook community here. this is a safe space to talk all things fashion and beauty as well as a great one stop shop to keep up with the latest promotions and discount codes.
i am such a sucker for puppies [i may call all dogs puppies ] and these pups stole the show! there were actually three but they were taking turns jumping in and out of the water and playing tug-o-war with me and sticks. i got a couple of scrapes and wet slobbers but puppy play time is always a fun time. seriously, dogs really are man’s [and woman’s] best friend. their joy is contagious!
i [thankfully] was shooting in a comfy marine layer dress that allowed me to move [i did a lot of running around with these guys] freely. the length is perfect so there are no accidental peek-a-boos if you catch my drift..
texas does season’s it’s own [can you expect anything less from texas?] so fall consists of temps from 97 [just a few weeks ago!] to low 70s. dresses and booties are my go-to because why not? it’s easy, comfy and looks great. these booties were a major mossimo target steal and i’ve worn them just about every chance i get. they also worked great trekking through the fields playing with these pups [seriously.. no blisters, can’t complain!]
i ran around with these guys and chatted up a storm with the amazing beccaeggerphotography. sometimes i get so caught in my busy days that i forget to just take a moment and enjoy it for what it is. most moments are spent thinking about the next moment and moments weeks into the future. it’s always a good reminder and when a moment like this comes along, you gotta just enjoy.
