Soooo...my husband and I (Jessica) are pretty big closet sci-fi fans. Like, our son is named Ender after my favorite science fiction novel, sci-fi fans. Serious stuff. It should come as no surprise then that we're also rabid fans of a certain British TV show, maybe you've heard of it?

And when I say "we're" rabid fans, what I really mean is that I am a giant nerdy fangirl and my husband thinks the show is "pretty good." I can't help it! I was raised on the Doctor, my Dad had me watching Doctor Who as far back as I can remember. I grew up watching Tom Baker as number Six strolling around space and time with his ten foot scarf in tow. It's in my blood.
So this Monday night the hubby and I are going out sans children (thanks Hilary!) to go see The Day of the Doctor, the 50th anniversary special episode, in theaters!!! *squeeeeeeeee x 1,000*
In honor of this momentous occasion, I wanted to pay tribute by dressing up as my favorite doctor, number Nine. And I wanted to do this without...shall we say...scaring people.
I like to think I pass as normal, most of the time.
Below is Christopher Eccleston's Ninth Doctor in costume, and my (hopefully not too obvious) version of what I'll be wearing:

I am such a nerd.
But actually I would totally wear this out on any old date with the hubby, so it's OK, right? Although I am going to hem those pants before I go, the length is bugging me now that I'm looking at the pics.
Sweater: Lauren Conrad for Khols// Booties: Steve Madden// Jeans: Gap// Jacket: unknown, thrifted// Bag: unknown, thrifted
P.S. This post is going live before I get to watch The Day of the Doctor. I'm saving myself for the movie theater experience, please DO NOT leave any spoilers if you've seen it!
