May the 4th be with you!

Happy May the 4th (Star Wars day) to everyone!

Today I wanted to do something to honor Star Wars so created a work appropriate outfit that channeled Princess Leia!

She tends to wear lots of white, but that didn't seem too work appropriate and it was a rainy Friday morning here. Finally found inspiration in the outfit she wears on Endor.

I used only what I already had in my wardrobe for an inspired rather than copied look. I didn't own any of her awesome blue pants, or the grey vest, so I improvised. Both the skirt and khaki shirt are thrifted, not sure about the white shirt. Black boots are from target and are so comfy!

Of course I had to try the Leia buns, don't think anyone would have recognized the braids...

It was so fun! I didn't try a sock bun, just did two little buns so it didn't look too costumy, just casual hair for our Friday casual attire.

I'm thinking about trying character inspired outfits more often as work clothes, I think it would be fun to have a little secret about what inspired my outfits. Any suggestions?
