Star Wars OOTD: The Phantom Menace | Anakin and His Angel

Today marks 20 years since The Phantom Menace was released in theaters. I was thirteen years old when I saw the movie and I remember feeling that my love for Star Wars had doubled as soon as it ended. I immediately went home and started decorating my room with any Star Wars collectibles that I already had (which mostly consisted of Han Solo, Princess Leia and Darth Vader items) and I began collecting toys and everything else I could get my hands on from the new movie. Believe it or not, before I purchased any posters I taped trading cards to my walls! I still can't believe I did that to this day.

When Star Wars Celebration Chicago came around I asked my friend Nancy to pick this TPM shirt up for me from the Celebration Store. My friend Michael Pasquale designed it and I had to have it! Lucasfilm recognized his incredible Star Wars artwork via Social Media and asked him to be a featured artist at Celebration and create official artwork! I've been a fan of Michael's work for a while and own multiple prints and enamel pins that he's made. Now to have a gorgeous shirt representing the iconic characters from the film in my collection is such a treat! Unfortunately tucking it into my skirt the way I did cut off some of the characters so please look above for the full piece!

Dressing up Star Wars t-shirts is basically one of my specialties. I feel like I kind of took it to the next level with this lovely strand of pearls my Grandma gifted me when I was a little girl. The skirt, heels (which I now own in four colors), and the clutch helped to create an overall chic ensemble which I'm definitely all about. I have an insane amount of Star Wars t-shirts so styling them with different accessories helps with creating whichever vibe I'm feeling on that particular day. Plus, you can never go wrong with pairing a t-shirt and a skirt together!

I was thrilled when I found out I won this Queen Amidala makeup bag that Megan Won designed for a Twitter giveaway. Isn't she talented? Queen Amidala is one of my favorite characters in all of Star Wars. She has the best wardrobe in the galaxy and I would honestly love to have several reasons to change my outfits throughout the day.

How old were you when you saw The Phantom Menace? Did you love it as much I did? Let me know in a comment below.

Cardigan: Target (Similar)
Bracelet: Gifted (MantraBand)
Headband: H&M (Similar)
Mini Backpack: Loungefly

One of my favorite Star Wars movies to be released since Disney bought Lucasfilm is Solo: A Star Wars Story. To celebrate the one year anniversary of its debut in theaters on May 25th I'm finally styling this Qi'ra t-shirt I picked up several months ago from Hot Topic. It's still available in sizes XS - M for less than $6! So if you like it, I wouldn't hesitate to order it. For reference, I'm wearing an XS. The shirt is made of 100% cotton so it's really comfortable to wear and the print is absolutely stunning!

Star Wars OOTD: Solo A Star Wars Story | Anakin and His Angel

Solo is a film that fills my heart with so much joy and gives me the same feeling I've always experienced when watching the Original Trilogy. It's a wonderful story and I hope we get to see it continued in some form. Qi'ra is a character I became really attached to. I admire her strength, combat skills, and I definitely relate to her feisty ways. I thought this bracelet that reads, "Though she be but little, she is fierce."by MantraBand would be the best accessory to style with the shirt since I feel it represents both of us so perfectly.

This cardigan is probably one of the most luxurious cardigans I own and I just really love the way the forest green shade compliments the purple hues on the t-shirt. I tied this ensemble together with a darling floral headband I discovered for a few dollars at H&M, a pair of jeans, wedges and a backpack from Loungefly! If you're curious as to whether or not I actually wore this outfit out, I did! I've worn it to a Birthday party and on a regular day taking my car in to get new break pads. Many of you probably know that I'm all about wearing what you love and what makes you feel good no matter the occasion.

I can't believe it's been a year already since Solo hit theaters. I remember being really excited that it was released in May and seeing it more times than I can remember with my husband and various members of my family. If you love this film as much as I do and would like to see a sequel made, you can participate in the movement to make it happen by using the hashtag #MakeSolo2Happen on Twitter on May 23rd and tagging The Resistance Broadcast!


DIY: Qi'ra's Manicure | Anakin and His Angel

If you haven't seen it, I recreated Qi'ra's manicure in this post late last year.

How do you feel about the movie? Tell me your thoughts and let me know what you think of this outfit in a comment below!

Happy Star Wars Day! When Design by Humans offered to send me one of their newest Star Wars t-shirt designs in celebration of May the 4th, I quickly accepted! The Rise of Skywalker has been a film I have been anticipating for a long time and I'm so happy to be able to express my excitement for it by styling this officially licensed Star Wars t-shirt that beautifully displays the logo for the final chapter of the Skywalker story.

This shirt is available in a Men's Perfect Tee (this is the style I'm wearing in a Small, their smallest size), Men's Long Sleeve, Women's Perfect Tee and a Juniors Perfect tee all in a wide range of sizes. The shirt is a little on the larger side for my petite frame but I still love it and I think it looks great tucked in. The tee is 100% cotton and feels the softest after it's been washed and dried. I don't typically dry my clothes but since I wanted to shrink it I dried it inside out. You can read this post to learn how I wash my geeky items if you're interested.

I styled the t-shirt with denim jeans, a new pair of open toe pumps, a belt, a bar necklace and a blazer. I personally think that adding a belt creates a more polished look for the office when tucking in a shirt and obviously a blazer is like the cherry on top! If you're allowed to wear graphic tees at work I think this would make a great ensemble. Always remember to choose pieces that make you feel good but that are also comfortable!

Design by Humans is offering 15% percent off their Star Wars t-shirt designs with code "MT4" through May 5th. If you need a shirt like this of your own or perhaps you prefer The Mandalorian or even Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, they've got you covered! Have a look and see what the Force leads you too.
