We’re Over the Moon! 20 Awesome Galaxy Print Wearables to Buy + DIY
Most of us will never get the chance to venture out into space and, let’s face it, after seeing Gravity, we’re not really sure if we’d ever want to. But the one thing you can’t deny is how beautiful space is. We’re mesmerized every single time we enter a planetarium, and we decided that we love these 20 galaxy-print pieces of clothing just as much as we love gazing up at the night sky. Whether you’re buying or DIYing, this solar-system-inspired print will soon become one of your favorites.
1. The Way I Galaxy It Dress ($85): Of course, we’re going to start out with a cute little dress. It’s like what a young, hip and trendy Ms. Frizzle would wear!
2. ASOS Woven Sweatshirt with Universe Print ($113): Oh no, we aren’t stopping at the galaxy. Not at all. We’ve got the entire universe for you on this beauty.
3. Style Stalker Space Jam Dress ($83): We’re not sure if the name of this dress is referring to the same Space Jam we know and love. But we’d love this dress about a million times more than we already do if it is.
5. ASOS Watch With Galaxy Print ($23): Encourage your guy to get on trend with this fantastic watch. Or just buy it for yourself. That works too.
6. Anthropologie Galaxy Inlay Booties ($168): Trust Anthropologie to make a galaxy print that also works with spring’s permanent light color trend. This must be what space looks like from a telescope on Candy Land.
7. Tripp NYC Far Beyond Skinny Jeans ($108): You can now look like the coolest chick around with these rad skinnies. You’re so welcome.
8. DIY Galaxy Inspired Scarf: We have two favorite things about this scarf. First, it surprisingly goes with everything. Yes! Second, it’s made from jersey knit fabric, so you don’t even need to sew the edges. Thank goodness for that! (via Brit + Co.)
9. Keds Space Out Sneakers ($60): While a black galaxy print may be a tad more realistic, we’re falling for theses beautiful blue Keds. Seriously, we want all space movies to take place in a purple, blue and green galaxy.
10. ASOS Pencil Skirt in Graphic Galaxy ($22): A skirt this amazing can only be described as hawt… yes, with that spelling. Oh, and check out these other awesome midi-length clothes while you’re at it!
12. ASOS Galaxy Shades ($20): Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds? Oh no. Lucy’s floatin’ out there in the galaxy with these decorated John-Lennon-esque sunnies.
13. Your Eyes Lie Cosmic Print Cropped Tee ($38): If you’re a little hesitant about jumping on the galaxy print bandwagon, take a baby step with this triangle shirt. It’s like a paint swatch for your wardrobe.
15. Petite and Co Nebula Studs ($14): This has got to be the most mesmerizing pair of earrings I’ve ever seen. And… yup. It’s been added to my cart.
16. ASOS Skater Skirt in Galaxy Print ($9): You don’t have to be Kristi Yamaguchi (throwback!) to rock this skater skirt. You’ll look fabulous no matter what.
17. ASOS Wasp Pencil Skirt ($16): Whoa! Now that’s one amazing pencil skirt.
19. DIY Galaxy Necklace: DIY jewelry is one of our most favorite things in the whole wide world… scratch that, in the entire galaxy. We dare you to make this cute necklace with a guitar pick. (via Oh the Lovely Things)

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
