Outfit: White Mock Neck Top, Colorful Star Trek Skirt, and White Sandals

Handmade Star Trek Print Skirt, White Mock Turtleneck Shirt, and Flat White Sandals

This pleated Star Trek skirt may be my favorite skirt in my closet. It's both super colorful - so it goes with a billion different tops - and geeky. Though I'm a bigger fan of Star Trek: TNG, I do enjoy original Star Trek too! This skirt is part of a matching set I wore to Dragon Con last year. My mom made it for me so it's one-of-a-kind. I'm going to need to wear the pieces together again before it's an inappropriate season to wear a crop top with a cutout in the front. (The temperature here is fine for crop tops well into October most of the time though!)

Anyway, I actually wore this to work on one of our casual days. I paired the skirt with my new white mock turtleneck top and a pair of comfortable white sandals. I usually don't wear a whole lot of white, but I loved how the white top and sandals looked against the bold skirt. What do you think?

Speaking of Star Trek, Matt and I are getting a dog this weekend and may be naming it a Star Trek character name... Because we wanted a somewhat geeky name that's not over-used. Stay tuned for that!

I'm super pumped for the weekend and am hoping I'll have time to catch up on the blogosphere. I miss doing my monthly favorites features and have been feeling bad about missing them, so I'm figuring out a way to bring them back! It's just been a hectic past couple of months with moving out and working and generally trying to be a functioning adult. So please let me know if you miss the monthly favorites feature too and anything else you'd like to see from me in the upcoming months!

As always, thanks for visiting/commenting/being the cool person you are! Have an amazing weekend!


P.S. Be sure to check out my Instagram page this weekend. Hint: You may see puppy pictures!

That skirt is so fantastic! I really can't wait to make more unique nerdy skirts (next on my list is Doctor Who) once I have time to sew! Which... with the baby due anytime, might not be for a while. But I'm determined to find a way somehow!

I like all of the white with the outfit, I think it works really well! And I totally understand not being around on the blogosphere; I've been posting, but my time is gone by the time I'm done and I can't read or comment as much as I wish I could! Taking advantage of pre-newborn days to catch up here and there!

I loooove that skirt! It is everything! How perfect it is!
And I think it looks amazing with the white - it makes the skirt pop more.

You look amazing and so happy in that outfit, wonderful pictures!
Much love,

Wow this is such an amazing skirt. I love unique prints like this and it's very impressive that your mum made it. I want to get into making skirts. I don't know how successful it's going to be. I bought some
Pink velvet but just need to find the time to start.

Wow, that is so cute. Has your mom ever thought of selling them? I know so many people who would go crazy over your skirt. It goes great with your bright hair :)

So cute! I love the white top and sandals with it - I'd be so nervous to drop food on it, though! How'd you do? Haha good luck getting the new pup! Will we see his/her debut here on the blog? I hope so!!

On the internet, I see crop tops with a jacket all winter long, but I do agree it would be a strange sight to see in real life. So I'm glad you can enjoy it while it's still humid and hot as heck! That skirt is seriously precious.

Eeeeeek! A new puppy! I hope he makes an appearance here. :)
