Nerd in Real Life: The Winter Soldier (Style & #Fashion)

Nerd in (Really) Real Life is a feature here at Lasers ~N~ Lipstick where I get to (epically) geek out with Nerdy Finds I track down in real life. Whether I’m putting together nerdy outfits for my favorite movies and comics, or scavenging for geeky finds in my local shops, Nerd in (Really) Real Life will have something for everyone!

 

 

 

Today’s Nerd in (Really) Real Life is inspired by the recent mega blockbuster release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Before watching The Avengers (which you MUST watch), I have to admit, I was NOT a huge Captain America fan. In fact, I did not even see his solo movie before The Avengers came out. However, in The Avengers, Captain America slowly grew on me. And the more I watched him, the more I fell in love with his personality, style, old fashioned wisdom and sheer awesomeness. So now that I’m an EPIC fan of our all-American hero and the new Winter Soldier move was just released, let’s put together a fun outfit we can wear to go see the movie.

What I love about this top is the cute lace back and its all-American feel. It’s cute, black, will go with many different bottoms and can be dressed up or down depending on your mood.

My four-year-old daughter and I both screamed at the computer when we spotted these shoes. They are gorgeous, strappy, the heel is not too tall for those of us who dislike being in heels. These wedges will definitely make this outfit stand out in a crowd.
