May The Fourth


Happy Star Wars Day, fellow nerds! When I found this Darth Vader boys’ tee at Target (and on sale), I knew it’d be perfect for May the 4th, better known as Star Wars Day across the fandom. The problem? Well, I’m no longer in college so I had to find a way to make this work for the office (and not on a casual Friday).

The solution? Throw a blazer on it.


I love this blazer. It’s not too stodgy, and it fits pretty well. I’m about average height, but my torso is proportionally shorter, so petite tops hit me in all the right places. I couldn’t find my black flared skirt (laundry baskets — they’re everywhere) so I ended up wearing a skater dress instead. The key is tucking your top into a skinny belt, as seen here. Pointed toe flats add a little more polish.


Anyone else celebrating? We had Star Wars mac and cheese with hot dogs for dinner, and now I get to clean my room while watching Episode IV on DVD (which I got for Christmas). In the meantime, I’ll leave you with the trailer for Episode VII.

Springtime and Water Ice

Cardigan – Target (ages ago, similar); Tee – c/o Aphillyated; Necklace – Avon (like back in high school, similar); Jeans – Ross (similar); Flats – Old Navy (similar).

Hope everyone had a great first day of spring! I don’t even like spring generally, but you can bet I was counting down this year! It was definitely chillier than I would’ve liked, but I got away with flats (and a peacoat!) so I’ll take what I can get.

Yesterday also marked another Philly milestone: my first time standing in line for free Rita’s! I even call it “water ice” instead of “Italian ice” — not quite at the point of saying “wooder ice” with a Philadelphia accent though.

That being said, how fun is this graphic tee from Aphillyated? I’ve actually ordered gifts from Aphillyated — a local apparel company  that features a Philadelphia flair in all their products — before, but this is the first piece of their clothing I actually own. (I’m currently lusting after this LOVE v-neck!)

This shirt basically features a meme I’ve seen all sorts of tees, but with Phamous Philly Phoods (sorry, had to). (Sidebar: Is it wrong if I don’t get the hype with the soft pretzels here though?) I’m excited to style it differently if when the weather warms up, so I opted for a colorful cardigan and matching necklace this time around.

How did you celebrate the first day of spring?
