It finally feels like the weather is transitioning from summer to fall, which means I can finally start wearing boots again! This may be one of the few times during the year where you can wear boots with a skirt and not have to wear tights due to the cold! I love that this mini skirt is perfect for some tall boots, but has a sheer overlay to “shield” your legs. And something about polka dots reminds me of the old fashioned way they used to print comics, which is why I thought my Marvel comics dress would be the perfect top. Let’s hope it doesn’t get too cold too soon!
The thing with awesome shirts is that they get worn, get old, and you keep them for a lifetime. When I bought this “Darkside of the Garden” tee a long time ago from a little place online called Threadless, I knew it was one of those shirt designs that I liked enough to keep forever. How can you resist the domesticated Darth Vader architecting the latest Death Star bush? Fast forward over 10 years later and I’m still finding new ways to wear it!
When Disneyland announced that they were renovating Star Tours a few years ago, I knew from that point on that Star Tours was going to be one of my new favorite rides at the park. Even though I can’t ride it over and over like I would like to due to my motion sickness, I’ve still been able to ride it enough to experience all of my favorite Star Wars destinations. I nabbed this shirt shortly after the ride opened and although I love the art and design of the shirt, it is definitely one of my more challenging geeky shirts to wear as it looks more like a “souvenir/vacation” shirt than something I could wear out. However, instead of only wearing this at Disneyland or on weekends, I took it upon myself to try to dress this one up a little. Adding this gold collar necklace is not only a great accessory, but can easily make any T-shirt a little more dressy. And with a skirt and some heels, this easily goes from casual weekend wear to a fun night out!
Whenever people ask me what my favorite color is, I always feel a little morbid saying that when it comes to clothing, I love to wear grays and blacks. There’s something about gray that makes me feel really cozy and black has been my go-to color ever since I was a wannabe rebellious teenager. So it should come to no surprise that on days where I can’t decide what to wear, I might just pull out a plain ol’ gray tee and pair it with a black skirt. For those into the “comfy chic” look, here’s another one to add to the books!
I’ve forever been a fan of sweetheart dresses so when I saw this “faux” sweetheart dress from G.Kim’s latest line, I instantly fell in love. Sweetheart dresses look great on mostly everyone, but for *ahem* smaller chested people such as myself, it can be a challenging to wear them! Talk about pulling up your dress all day long… This dress instantly resolves that problem by looking like a strapless dress, but not really being one! I love solution oriented clothing! And P.S. use code SG914 to save 15% on anything you buy from G.Kim online!
Summer always goes by way too fast. Luckily, living in the warmer part of the Bay Area allows me to wear tanks and skirts even up till October sometimes! Brandy Melville may be every teeny bopper’s dream store, but I’m a fan due to it’s ’90s-meets-modern-day style. I’m especially a fan of their graphic tops, skirts, and basic tees that are super soft and comfy. You might say this moon phase tank totally has me “phasing” out of summer. :D
Even when I’m not dressed up as Lady Vader, sometimes I still feel like I’m channeling my inner Vader. I actually wore this outfit the other day to work and someone commented that my skirt looked like a cape. That may sound a little strange, but it actually felt like the perfect compliment considering Vader’s cape is a big part of his dark and looming presence. Even though this skirt is far from terrifying, maybe it’s enough to bring you to the dark side? :D
