Geek Chic: Feelin’ fly like it’s Quidditch





This shirt laid long forgotten for the last several years, being trapped inside of a tub that rarely opened except to put away or take out sweaters and jackets during the changing of the seasons. As I moved from apartment to apartment, it just kept getting buried under more stuff. It wasn’t until I cleaned it out a few months ago to reuse the tub for a better purpose that I found it. I think I’ve worn it at least once every other weekend since then. I love it when that happens. That’s why I’m always a little reluctant to get rid of an article of clothing. Who knows how I’ll feel about it a few years from now? I actually think I like this shirt more now than when I first got it. It definitely fits better.

What I like to do with shirts like this is to match them up with a pair of boyfriend jeans, skinny jeans, or denim shorts. There’s something about novelty tee’s that’s more relaxing than most. Add some cool kicks to your feet and bam! Instant kick-it outfit. For a night out to the bars, layer on a leather jacket and swap the sneakers for some ballet flats or oxfords. For a smarter look, throw on a leather jacket and a pair of matching pumps, and top off with a cute clutch in hand.

For those of you that might not know, Quidditch was the game made famous by the Harry Potter series. Since then, the sport has been spreading far and wide. I think it’s so cool that Quidditch has become a legit sport played around the world. Did you know that the US has 900+ teams, with 87 alone in California? University of Texas Austin beat UCLA and took home the Quidditch World Cup title this past April. My team is the Silicon Valley Skrewts, and I know they’re going to crush it this season! I’ve unfortunately missed their scrimmage game, but I’m going to try to make it to one of their home games. I’m pretty stoked about it. Who’s your team?
