Tan is not my color palette and neither is cold shoulder my style thing so honestly, I’m not entirely sure why I bought this Rey cardigan a year or so ago BUT I DID. And it is comfy and cute. And hey it works for work! (This is another one of those ‘yes I actually wore this to the office’ outfits.)

Every time I think I have a favorite Musterbrand piece, another new one enters my life. I will forever love my x-wing cape and shoes but this cardigan… this Kylo Ren inspired cardigan is where it’s at. It has thumb holes!!! (Someone please tell me I’m not allowed to buy it in red.)
Sith Apprentice Cardigan: Musterbrand
Imperial Tunic: Kohl’s
TIE Earrings: Box Lunch
Star Boots: The Fix/Amazon
What I love most about this cardigan is how it feels effortlessly stylish. I can toss it on with just about anything and feel good, comfortable and also warm. (Something that’s key in the office.) Also, it definitely flows behind me when I walk down the hallway which makes it almost as good as a cape. Part of what really makes this cardigan great though doesn’t show up in my pictures terribly well but it’s the variety of textures going on. It elevates what could have been a nice cut yet sorta boring piece to something far more special. This is one of those items of clothing that both nerds and non-nerds will appreciate. (Source: Lots of compliments from my assorted coworkers, including my boss, and more than a few compliments over the couple of hours I wore this to Awesome Con for one of my panels.) I’ve had this cardigan for a month now and I can honestly say it’s one of the pieces I reach for the most. If you’re even casually considering buying this piece… do it. Trust me. It’s great.
Disclaimer: Musterbrand provided the Kylo cardigan but only requested honest feedback and did not ask for a positive review in return.
One of the things that I wanted to do when I decided to bring White Hot Room back was to try and feature more outfits that I could actually wear to work. Granted, I do work somewhere with a relatively casual dress code but it’s made it a fun challenge. This particular outfit? I drove home from work, put a little bit of make up on, and then went outside to take pictures.
Bromance Cardigan: Elhoffer Design
Black Shirt: H&M
Black Pants: Max Jeans
Tall Boots: Dr. Scholl’s
The Last Jedi Purse: Dooney & Bourke for Disney
Honestly, if all my sweaters could be from Musterbrand, I’d be happy. Their Rey sweater was one of their first Star Wars pieces but is a relatively new acquisition for me. It might not be one of my usual colors (they also make it in black!) but it’s comfy and different and it’s honestly hard not to wear my hair in Rey buns every time I put this on.
Oh hey we’re back! Aaaaand just pretend not to notice that these pictures are from the fall because there is no way I’d be going outside in February in short sleeves. So yes, we’re back from our unannounced break and my goal is to try and bring you a new outfit every week.
I absolutely adore this shirt from Prophecy Girl which channels Bazine Netal from The Force Awakens. It’s undercover nerdy and different from what a lot of the geek fashion world is doing. Plus? It’s work appropriate! I’ll definitely be buying more from them in the future.
Bazine Shirt: Prophecy Girl
Pencil Skirt: BCBG
