Fall Dapper Day at Disneyland is happening today and I am having a major case of fomo. I love going to Dapper Day because it’s so fun to see everyone decked out to the nines. I got to go to the Spring Dapper Day event back in April; my friends and I coordinated with Marvel themed Disneybound outfits. I was torn between putting together a Captain America outfit or a Loki one, but Loki’s got way more swag and I have more green, black, and gold in my closet than red, white, and blue. Spring Dapper Day took place a few days after my sister’s wedding, so Shanice helped me keep my victory rolls intact because I thought they’d go perfect with my pinup inspired Loki ensemble. My hair was so crunchy and flaky from all the hairspray I used, but that’s what happens when you’re burdened with dapper purpose 😛
Since Thor Ragnarok hit theaters I’ve got both of Odin’s boys on the brain, and I saw that guests can now meet both Thor AND Loki at California Adventure!! And BTW – how AMAZING was Thor Ragnarok?! Captain America will forever be my fictional husband, but Thor is legit the best Avenger, and I’m so happy with the direction this film went in. Taika Waititi for all the things, please!!
If you’re wondering, “If these are from April, why it she only posting about this outfit now?” Y’all… it’s been a busy year. I’ve got a back catalog of outfit pics and other things that have yet to be posted on here. I’m trying to catch up, I swear!
Did you go to Dapper Day? Did you Disneybound? Have you seen Thor Ragnarok yet? Let’s talk about it in the comments section!

It’s Valentine’s Day and for once in the past three years I’m not bitter about it. Hooray for progress! I’m not doing anything to celebrate since this holiday is like whatever¯_(ツ)_/¯, but I did go out and kick it breakfast style with my friend Cailtin yesterday for a holiday that is superior by far: Galentine’s Day! But y’know, as much as I rag on Valentine’s Day like most other single people, it’s kind of hard to truly hate it because Valentine’s Day decorations are completely my aesthetic. This is something I’ve come to terms with. I love all the hearts and the pinks and reds and golds, the roses, the candy, the cute cards… UGH! I just can’t hate it. Everything is too damn cute and pretty. 😛
I didn’t wear this particular outfit today, but I thought it’d be cute to put together a retro geeky pinup look together to share on the blog for Valentine’s Day. Obviously, I had to go with a floral print skirt and Star Wars accessories! The hair flower is something my sister picked up for me a few months ago when she went to some tiki convention in San Diego. I’m obsessed with hair flowers — apparently at my tutoring gig, students refer to me as “the girl who always has a flower in her hair” — so my sister sent me some pics to see if I might want anything. How cute it is?! It’s a bit gaudy, but so fab! And I added a trifecta of Valentine’s Day-ish Star Wars pins to my red velvet top.
Roses are red
TIE Fighters are gray
I love Darth Vader
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Whether you celebrate or not, are single or taken, I hope your day is wonderful ♥
PS: My alternative Star Wars Valentine’s Day poem:
Roses are red
Darth Vader is blue
‘Cause Padme is dead

I don’t believe in washing my lighter clothes separately from my darker clothes. I ain’t got time for that! Throwing everything into the wash and putting it on cold has never ever been a problem for me. Why the hell am I talking about this? It’s all relevant to the outfit I’m wearing in this post, I swear! Now, you see that white t-shirt I’m wearing with an uber fancy pants Cyberman on it? Well, it is no longer white. It is pink because I accidentally didn’t switch the wash from warm/cold water to cold/cold water. UUUUGGGGHHHH!!! Such a rookie mistake! Wanna know what turned it pink too? If you guessed the skirt I’m wearing in these picture, you’d be correct. /facepalm
In a way it’s kind of funny since –SPOILER ALERT– Danny Pink from series 8 of Doctor Who turns into a Cyberman… and my shirt’s got a Cyberman and now it’s suddenly pink. Get it? Get it??? Haaaa… okay, I’m the only one who finds it amusing. 😛
It’s not drastically pink. I don’ think so, anyway. But another casualty that the red skirt hit was my mint green cropped cardigan. RUGH. – insert angry face emoji here –
Lesson learned? Always triple check the water temperature before I wash my clothes!
