Funny story:

Spiderman: Homecoming was going to be my first Marvel movie to see in theatres. I am surrounded by brothers in the birth order of our family, so when we have movie nights, we end up watching action movies, sci-fi. . . etc. Guy flicks. Open-mouthed smile Well, a few years ago, once I was old enough, my older brothers introduced me and my younger brother to the Marvel Universe. Every Marvel movie that was in theatres since then was either meh, (to me) or too violent for my likes, so I waited.

Enter, SPIDERMAN! Guys. Just so cute. I love the fact that he is normal, awkward and still a kid. I also knew that that would mean the movie was going to be slightly less intense and geared towards a younger audience which was fine with me. I may or may not have watched the trailer too many times. I was so excited to get to see a Marvel movie in theatres with my older bros and my parents came too! I of course needed a Spiderman shirt. I wanted to be a full on nerd. Open-mouthed smile And I was. My dream came true. This outfit was the result.

I love taking something super casual and finding ways to dress it up. I felt so “me” in this outfit. The skirt is one of my favorites as you probably well know. *wink* I know I post it a lot. But at least this way you can get some ideas and ways to style the same thing. I am an average girl. . . I can’t afford a ton of new clothes. LOL!

I also altered the tshirt. . . My brother got it for me and the only size they had was a men’s medium. . . In real life, I would probably be an extra small. HAHA! So I took one of my existing t-shirts, used that as a guide and cut a lot off of this shirt. I sewed it back up, shortened the sleeves so they would be a cap sleeve cut (more flattering) and also cut down the neck and refinished that. Generic T-shirt necklines drive me nuts. I feel like they are trying to choke me. So, all fixed! And since my hair was down, I got to wear a pair of feather earrings from my bestie. Fun fact: I love feathers.

And last but not least. . . yes, I did greatly enjoy the movie! No spoilers, but it was really good! *secretly can’t wait to watch it again*

  1. That may the cutest nerdy outfit I’ve ever seen. 0.0 ❤

    I like the idea of dressing up t-shirts, but I'm only good at it if it's already a dressier style of T. I also tend not to wear skirts (or anything that exposes my legs) for casual outfits, because A) skirts feel *too* dressy to me for doing casual things. For me, it's usually sweatpants around the house and dark wash jeans for everything else except church. And B) (the BIG reason) it makes me that much more likely to get eaten alive by mosquitoes *swats mosquitoes* so that limits my options a lot. :p

    Spiderman Homecoming is one of the few Marvel movies I've wanted to see in a while (mainly because of Zendaya being in it ;)), but I'll wait for the DVD. The fact that you liked it makes me want to see it that much more, though.

    • LOL! Thank you so much! You made me smile! I hear you about too dressy, but at this point in my life, I don’t care about being too dressy. I always am dressed more dressy than the average person, and I am okay with that. I am being me and I feel the most feminine and like myself in a skirt, so I go for it. If others can wear pajamas to the store, I figure I have just as much of a right to wear my dresses and girly outfits. 😀 And don’t get me started about mosquitoes. Thankfully, we don’t have that many here, but I wore a dress to a family bonfire/potluck and they had a TON of mosquitoes. It was terrible. Thankfully I had brought jeans to change into. I am just so used to not having mosquitoes at my house.

      Yes! Spider-Man was really good! I would recommend seeing it in theatres if you can. Nothing beats that big screen and surround sound feel. Especially for an action movie. ❤

  2. Oh my goodness, Victoria! That outfit is SO cute!! 🙂 I need to try dressing up tshirts… It seems so simple, yet super cute and even dressy.
    When you redid that Tshirt, did you just make it up as you went? Or did you follow something that told you how to?
    I haven’t seen Spiderman. I keep hearing lots of great things about it though!

  3. I love your skirt. I wear t-shirts, but I don’t have really any dressy skirts that would match, sadly. Good job redesigning the shirt! I have never seen Spider-Man movies, but I’m glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
    Can’t wait for your q&a video. 🙂

    Enjoy your weekend.
    Love

  7. Random question, and maybe you would look to include this in a future FAQ post, but what all do you do for the photography on your blog? Meaning what camera do you use, what lens, what editing programs, and any tips you have! I have a Canon Rebel T5 and a 50mm lens, but my pics still don’t turn out great! I’m missing something, obviously lol

  8. Hi, Victoria!
    Love the outfit! You did such a great job on the t-shirt!
    I haven’t seen Homecoming yet, I’ve been debating on whether I should or not. I’ve heard a lot of really good things about it, but also a lot negative things about it. I wanted to get your opinion on the movie. What were your thoughts on it? Maybe you could write up a movie review? Just a thought. 🙂
    Have a nice day!
