*I was gifted all the pieces featured in this post as well as a trip to NYC for the photoshoot. Thank you to Kohl's for this experience!*

By now all my regular readers know that I LOVE Harry Potter. What many of you may not know is that one of my first fandoms was Star Wars, back when I didn't even know what a fandom was.  When I was younger my brother, sister and I would watch the original trilogy on VHS all the time.  Then when my youngest brother started watching tv/movies he would watch one pretty much every day. Needless to say I can quote the movies with dialogue, music and sound effects without missing a beat.

When Kohl's asked me to be part of their Force of Fashion YES Moment, I had to accept! A day with fellow Star Wars fans styling outfits: what could be better than that?! The day was so much fun, especially when spent with girls who loved Star Wars as much as I did. The Kohl's team was amazing and so fun to work with. We had a long day of shooting and a video interview session talking about our love of the series.  Below are some of the official photos and the video, I'll share behind the scenes stuff separately since there are so many photos!

For my first outfit I dressed up an adorable R2D2 sweatshirt! R2 is one of my favorite characters (along with C3P0) so I HAD to pick this piece. With my second look I went a bit edgier with the leggings and vest. Normally I don't wear leggings as pants, but with the vest it covers up everything I want to hide.  The other girls also did an amazing job styling up the Star Wars collection. I think we've proved that you can be a fashionable geek, yes?! Kohl's was nice enough to let us take home the clothes we modeled, so I can't wait to wear all these pieces in the coming months.
