I’m going to take a guess and say most of you have seen The Force Awakens, right? Possibly more than once? While I’ve only seen it once (so far! Life got in the way this week), I can’t help but love the droids and other robots of the Star Wars universe. I know many fans are delighted by BB-8 (so am I! Naturally, a BB-8 look is coming soon!), but R2-D2 was always my first favorite character. Without human speech, he was given a fun, unpredictable personality, and makes a great mascot for the franchise.
Speaking of unpredictability, that’s precisely what I ran into while styling and shooting this look. This was shot in December, and it was much too warm for the coordinating coat and stockings I’d planned to wear with this ensemble. It was nearly too warm for the sweater, but I stuck it out anyway (and drank a lot of iced drinks). Sometimes you just have to work with what life throws at you. R2-D2 certainly does.
I liked the idea of silver metallic fabric against this comfy R2-D2 sweater, so this mini skirt instantly stood out to me. To make it daytime friendly, I paired these studded flats with the outfit. However, this look would be fantastic for a party with a pair of heels: silver, blue, even nude if you want to focus just on the skirt and sweater. My ring and earrings are also R2-D2 themed, and tie into the look. My makeup is also a bit toned down for a day look, as I chose peach-pink shades for my eyes, cheeks, and lips, with a pop of navy blue liner on my lids.
It was a lovely day to walk and explore a little town I’d never visited before. Unsurprisingly, the R2 details got quite a bit of attention. So many people seemed to love my droid ring!
