With upcoming patriotic party week, we’ve got a few suggestions on how to beat the heat — namely, poolside getaway and pants optional. So splash on some sunscreen, because we got your geek cred covered with some cute basic swimwear, swimwear part 2: geekier still, and nerdy throw-on tees.
Let’s start from there.
We’ll also be going on a small hiatus for the upcoming week, so a great Canada Day and July 4th to all who are celebrating this coming week!
We can’t all be one of the seven fierce Sand Snakes, the bastard daughters of Oberyn Martell, but we can certainly all accessorize like one! Gold is the metal of choice in Dorne. The Sand Snakes are fiercely proud both of being their father’s daughters and of their collective name so snake motifs and snake skin fabrics and textures are the name of the game here.

When it comes to Star Wars, we love the Jedi and all the other fun characters from the galaxy far far away but we clearly bat for Team Pilots of Rogue and Wraith Squadrons. Needless to say, we were thrilled beyond belief when Ashley Eckstein let us know last fall that she was in the process of designing a Rogue Squadron dress and tank. Waiting those months was tough but last week, I finally bought and received my very own Rogue Squadron dress from the fabulous Her Universe! (Pilots, folks. PILOTS.) It’s adorable and chic and I can’t express how much I love it. So obviously I had to shoot it.
By the way, the title of the post is an homage to both the wonderful pilots of Red Squadron who took on the first Death Star and Tycho Celchu, one of my favourite Rogues. (Shut up, I just have a lot of feelings about Alderaan.)

For reference, I’m not quite 5’7″ and am wearing a size Medium in the Rogue dress so it is a little on the shorter side for the taller girls.
It might’ve taken us awhile but we’re finally getting back to the other Hogwarts Houses by asking today what might members of Hufflepuff House wear? The answer is apparently a lot of yellow. Yellow and black. Thankfully, this works out perfectly for summer! The best part about this warmer weather is that there’s no need to bundle up against the cold and fear looking like a bumblebee as you show off your house pride. Hufflepuff style is very much about ease of dress combined with casual elegance along with the occasional side of something slightly fancier when it comes to Hufflepuff fashion.
