I’m One With The Force

Happy Star Wars day! Anybody pumped for The Last Jedi? I’m always kinda disappointed that I only got into Star Wars after I already moved home, so I can’t discuss it with my film buff friends. Sure, we talk on Tumblr and Facebook, but it’s not the same. I may work at a film school, but my co-workers are hopeless when it comes to pop culture. When it comes to things like sci-fi and superheroes, I always end up talking to my students.

Anyway, the outfit is unrelated, but it looks like I’m channeling R2-D2 with my white, blue, and a touch of red. I’m also wearing my “Moon of Yavin” necklace (that’s what I’m calling it anyway), so I guess you can say my outfit is celebrating Star Wars too.

Elbow Patches

Even though the scenery in Da Lat is perfect for photo shoots, I didn’t really take outfit photos while I was there. Mostly because I was too busy taking pictures of other things, but also because my outfits were kind of uninspired. Functional, yes, but hardly blog-worthy. This outfit and the SIA one I posted on Monday are actually very representative of what I wore, so I didn’t see any point in taking outfit photos every day.

My packing list worked out pretty well, though. I only wish I had packed more T-shirts for layering. Da Lat is said to have four seasons in one day – spring in the morning, summer at noon, fall in the afternoon, and winter at night – so in the morning I just piled on the layers, only to peel them off one by one as the day went on, and then put them on again.

Also: apparently I had a thing for elbow patches while packing sweaters for this trip.
