Inspired by Blathers from Animal Crossing
I absolutely love the cute look of Animal Crossing and wanted to bring that into a summer outfit that could transition to fall. I chose lots of owl accessories and neutral colors to really resemble Blathers.
Style Tip: To transition summer dresses to fall, pair with a light cardigan and tights. As it gets colder, you can even add an infinity scarf and boots.
1. I found this perfect vintage-cut, bird printed dress and paired it with a light brown crochet cardigan. I feel like Blathers knows how to crochet. // Dress: Dorothy Perkins - Cream Belted Bird Dress, $38 / Sweater: Matalan - Crochet Cardigan, $20
2. I chose an owl ring and a bone bracelet as a nod to the museum and the fossils Blathers collects. // Ring: Accessorize - Oscar Owl Ring, $23 / Bracelet: Bottica - Double Bone Bracelet, $152
3. These owl loafers are absolutely perfect. That is all. // Shoes: Zara - Owl Moccasin, $50
4. I wanted to bring in some light pink into the outfit like Blathers’ rosy cheeks and I found this ladylike bag, complete with owl decor. // Purse: Asos - Tassel Bowler Bag, $60

Super Mutant (Fallout 3) Inspired Outfit
After visiting DC for my honeymoon, I can’t stop thinking about Fallout! I wanted this outfit to have some retro and feminine pieces contrasted with lots of leather and tough accessories. I chose a floral printed dress to bring in that retro look, but the colors reflect the mutant’s skin tones. I also chose a dark olive leather vest and ankle boots that add some biker elements to the look. Lastly, I chose studs, skulls, and spikes for the jewelry!

Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Inspired Outfit
With the upcoming Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright game so close, I thought I’d do an outfit combining both character’s iconic looks. I’ve previously done each character (you can see my Prof. Layton and Mr. Wright here), so I wanted to do something unique and fresh. I chose dark blue dress pants to represent Wright’s outfit, as well as a button up shirt to mimic his suit. The button up shirt’s structure is Phoenix Wright, but the quirky print is all Professor Layton. I found a dark orange hat that’s very trendy for fall and brings in Professor Layton’s elements of his top hat and orange shirt. I also found orange heels and a brown bag that are in Professor Layton’s colors, but are sophisticated and lawyer-like. Lastly, I found coin earrings as a nod to the Professor’s in-game puzzle clues. This outfit combines both characters, but keeps the look dressy and modern.
