Outfit of the Week: May 4th, Quarantine Style

It’s May 4th, which for us nerds is known as Star Wars day because it readily invites its self to the pun – May the Fourth be with you (May the Force by with you). I, like many other Star Wars fans, like to celebrate by dressing in something that celebrates it. My favorite shirt to wear on this particular day is one that I found at the Houston NASA campus a few years ago. It takes it to another level by using the physics formula for force, F=ma. Hard to tell in photos, but the text is actually sparkly, which I think adds just a little fun.

And since we’re still in shelter-in-place, I’ve paired it with typical lounging at home wear – leggings and slippers. Haha.

A bright blue shirt reads May the F=ma be with you in sparkling white text. Gray leggings and teal slippers are next to the shirt.

This week was Belle’s blue dress from Beauty and the Beast.

Ireland Week One: I brought the sun!

I managed to nap a bit on the long flight, but the real trick to beating jet lag is to STAY HYDRATED. Every time the flight attendants come by with water, have a glass.

My sibling, Tall One, picked me up from the airport (so nice) and after dropping my super duper heavy suitcase off at the apartment, we had a lovely brunch at Angelina’s. I was skeptical about the quality of avocados being from CA and so far from where they’re grown, but I ordered an avocado toast and was most certainly not disappointed. Continue reading
