The Area 51 Raid, But Make It Fashion

Hey, everybody! I want to start this post off with a quick anecdote. Last night I was having a bit of a moment; I was really sad and just not feeling well at all. So, I did something I haven’t done in a long time: I took a night walk. The second I got outside I started to feel better. Who knew fresh air was actually good for you, right? Anyway, I had a lot of time for introspection and, of course, some Billie Holiday never hurt anything. But the pinnacle of this walk was the stars. I walked until I found a dark spot, and I watched all the different constellations come to life as my eyes adjusted. It was ethereal and calming. I’ve always loved space and, of course, I love clothes, so today I wanted to put together something a little extraterrestrial in honor of the tiny twinkling beauties up there.

So, here’s the flat lay for this week’s look. As you can see it’s a lot simpler than what we did last week, but don’t worry, she still packs a punch! The first detail that catches the eye is the shiny silver seen on both the skirt and those cute little sneakers.

Quick product review! These shoes are from Target, and they retailed for about $20. I don’t believe they’re still in stores but, from what I’ve seen, people are selling them on sites like Poshmark and Depop. The sizing is accurate, but I haven’t seen any half sizes. If you wear a half size, I recommend sizing up and not down. They’re not super sturdy, but they look great! For the price, I’d definitely say they’re worth it.

Because of all the sci-fi media that we see, when people think of space I feel as though metallics and silver definitely come to mind. With that said, those pieces are a no-brainer for this look. But what really completes the outfit for me are the socks!

They have a navy blue background, which I emphasized with a matching blue velvet top, and they’re embellished with pink UFOs! I decided to tie the yellow tops of the socks in using some hair bows, but I wanted to save the orange and the pink notes primarily for the makeup. Now, if you wanted to jazz it up, alien costume makeup would be perfect for this look, but I chose to stay more casual this week since last week was so over-the-top!

Here’s the final look! This was a really fun outfit to plan, and I hope you all enjoyed me babbling about it for a few paragraphs. I apologize for the camera quality in this post. Hopefully, it’ll be back up to speed next week. I hope you liked it nonetheless!
