HAPPY STAR WARS DAY!!!

In the nerd world, May 4 is Star Wars Day as it plays a pun on the famous saying, “May the force be with you.” To celebrate Star Wars Day I wore this outfit to work — all clad in my Star Wars gear, complete with Stormtrooper hair bow and ring! It’s not exactly “business casual” (our dress code), but I got tons of compliments from some customers and co-workers! One of them said, “So all I need to do is wear a cardigan and I can wear my nerdy shirts to work too?” Somehow I managed to get away with wearing my Luna Lovegood shirt by Megan Lara a few days before, so yes. Cardigans + nerdy shirt + nice skirt (or whatever fancy bottoms) = work appropriate. Huzzah for loopholes!!!

May the Fourth be with all my fellow geeks and nerds on this joyous Β holiday. YUB YUB!!!

Also: Happy Free Comic Book Day and Happy Birthday to Audrey Hepburn πŸ˜€

Cheers,
Nina

PS: Here’s a fun little ditty to celebrate the day.

    Love the top! I went round in my Start Wars top too yesterday just to add to the whole ‘May the 4th’ x

    • Thank you! It’s nice having this little nerd holiday, especially since it gives us all a better reason to be able to wear Star Wars related clothes and accessories to work!

    I totally heart that necklace. Must find one to dress up my tees!

  4. I LOVE this! Love love love love love. The necklace, the shirt, the fact it’s star wars. I’m going to Star Wars weekend this year πŸ˜€ I love that you love Star Wars like I do πŸ˜€

    • Thank you, Katherine!! I’m super jealous that you’re going to Star Wars weekend — I’m assuming you’re talking about the one that takes place in Disney World. I saw pictures of this chocolate and peanut butter Darth Vader cupcake they have and it looks SO EPIC!!!!! And yaaay for both being lovers of Star Wars! πŸ˜€

  5. i like how you used the bow in an outfit that’s not too girly… i will definitely try that and look up abby’s bowtique!!

    • Thank you, Margarita! Abby’s BowTique also has Disney hair bows. I came across her bows at a comic book convention in my hometown, but she does orders through her Facebook page. πŸ™‚

  6. Love this outfit. You made Star Wars so dainty. πŸ™‚
