Star Wars Outfit for a Special Occasion
I know, the first thing that comes to mind for most people when getting dressed for a special occasion, like a wedding anniversary, is NOT a quirky Star Wars shirt, red leather jacket and a super fun Betsey Johnson camera purse. But, I’m not most people. Haha.
My husband and I celebrated our 4th year of marriage on January 4th (last week). And, we originally didn’t have any big plans for it. However, we tried a couple times while we were home for the holidays to go see “Rogue One” in theaters, but it just never worked out.
So, once we got back to Sydney it seemed like a perfectly good way to celebrate our anniversary. I mean, honestly, for us, going to a Star Wars movie tops the list of activities for a date night! And we even sprung for the extra fancy theater seats…where they recline and waiters bring you your treats & wine to you during the movie. It was super fun. Oh, and I don’t want to give any spoilers, in case you haven’t seen it, but we both REALLY enjoyed the movie.
Funny enough, each time we attempted to see “Rogue One” while we were home, I wore this outfit. Haha. So, I wore this outfit a total of 3 times in about a week and attempted to take photos of it each time – but the photos were so rushed, I didn’t end up liking hardly any of them! Hence, why there are a few different backgrounds and I’m wearing a scarf in some photos. (It was chilly in Wisconsin but wayyyyy too warm in Sydney for one!)
But I was determined to wear my “It’s a Trap!” T-shirt for this movie. I mean, Rogue One, is all about the Death Star and there’s a big, cheesy, Death Star on this shirt (with a Rebel rodent, of course)…so, it seemed like a perfectly good occasion to wear it. Right?
And I did you see how awesome my purse is? I had just gotten this Betsey Johnson camera purse from my mother-in-law for Christmas! If you guys follow me on Twitter & Instagram you may have seen me mention my love for it – and my mother-in-law surprised me with it when we got back home. I’ve been using it nonstop and can’t stop staring it! It’s so much fun. (Thank you, Kim!)
Last but not least to complete my Star Wars/Anniversary outfit – my shiny, new leather jacket! I have been waiting patiently for this baby for months! It’s from Wilsons Leather, and they don’t ship to Australia, unfortunately, so my mom was keeping it safe for me until I came home. I have never had a jacket fit me so well and feel so soft! I’m seriously blown away by the quality of this jacket. I also love that it’s red, for a little something different. I really can’t wait until it’s cool enough to wear it again in Sydney! But I might have to wait a bit for that to happen again. 😉
Has anyone else seen Rogue One? What did you think? And did you wear any special outfits for it? Haha. (Or is that just me?)

Sounds like you had a lot of fun! I love the purse 🙂
Aw, thank you, Ashley! 🙂
LOVE that purse! That’s so funny how you wore this outfit a few times and didn’t like the pictures for most of them! Been there before! I’ve been thinking of you because the Star Wars costume exhibit you went to over the summer(?) is now in Denver and I drive by the museum and it’s advertisements a few times a week! XO
Thank you so much, Lauren! Haha! I am so glad I’m not the only one who does that! And oh gosh, that’s right! I forgot that exhibit moved to Denver. I’ll be updating my post with that info. Thank you for the reminder! 🙂
Haha! I love that this lovely outfit is an anniversary outfit for you! I love your unique and special style. Also you look super cool!
Haha! Thank you so much, Mona! Much love to you too! 🙂
Congrats on your anniversary! This is the perfect outfit to wear for the movie! I sometimes dress up for the theme of a movie when I go too. It makes it so much more fun! The top and bag are such incredible pieces!
Aw, thank you, Rebecca! 🙂
Congratulations to you and your husband! I think you celebrated it perfectly. I LOVE Star Wars. Unfortunately, my husband is not so much into it so I usually go with friends. I have not seen the movie yet though. Since our daughter was born, I did not have time to go to the cinema. But I plan to go and see it. And I adore your t-shirt! So cute and funny!!!
big hugs and congrats again!
Oh gosh, thank you so much, Miri! I can’t believe your husband doesn’t like Star Wars, haha. Glad your friends enjoy it, though! 🙂 Big hugs to you as well! 🙂
A death star made of Cheese! I love it!!!!x
Haha! Glad I’m not the only one! Thanks, Kezzie! 🙂
Dear Lindsey, I haven’t watched the movie yet, but it sounds nice! Also, to know that you will be brought treats and wine in the movie theater, how nice is that? What for a lovely mother-in-law to give you this amazing purse, I love it! And the jacket as well, and I think this is a perfect outfit to watch the movie! You look very beautiful! It’s nice that you mentioned that in the US it was too cold and then in Sydney too warm – so no scarf! And by the way, last but definitely not least, congratulations for your 4th wedding anniversary! A toast for the next 4 years and many more! Hope you have a fantastic week!
Oh yes! It was wonderful! And my mother-in-law certainly surprised me with this purse – it’s so fun! And thank you so much, Denise! I really appreciate it. Hope you’re having a fantastic week too. 🙂
I’ve seen Rogue One twice and am already planning to watch it for the third time! I didn’t wear any special outfits, but I did wear a Star Wars tee. Your outfit is so cute!
That is awesome! I really want to see it again. And thank you so much! 🙂
Obsessed with your bag!
Thank you! 🙂
