Recently, I visited the Johnson Space Center in Houston and it was honestly everything I dreamed of and more! I’m pretty much a nerd when it comes to space exploration. If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen some of my instastories from my time there. And that was me holding back and dialing it down! I’ll post more below for my fellow nerds out there 😉 I thought about wearing my NASA tee that day, but there were some weather issues and honestly, I was just afraid that I would look somewhat overly eager. Which I was, but I like to play it cool for the most part. We almost didn’t get to go, but Mother Nature gave us about 3 storm-free hours just enough to explore the best parts of the Space Center (if you plan on going, you’ve GOT to go on that Tram Tour. Seriously the meat and bones of it).

This is one of those outfits that I honestly would love to wear every single day if I can. It’s comfortable, it shows off my personal style, and proves to be a great ice breaker, because I had a lot of people try to talk to me at Target while sporting this look! The NASA Tee is from Redbubble, but the logo seems to be accessible from so many other retailers like Target and Boohoo. I’ve had a metallic skirt in my wish list for a while (really I want a holographic one, but this will do since I was able to get it for $6 haha) and I am loving it! It’s unique and can quickly elevate a look whether it’s casual or nighttime. Fishnet socks is kind of my new go-to trend. It’s kind of an edgy and unique accessory to have!
JOHNSON SPACE CENTER TIPS
- GO WHEN THE WEATHER IS PERFECT
Some of the best parts about Johnson Space center is outdoors, and they will close those stops and sights down if it’s raining or there’s a lighting or tornado alert. Your $30 admission just decreased in value, because what you’ll have left to see will seem about $12 worth.
- TAKE THE TRAM TOUR
You won’t regret it! It takes you to mission control centers, the rocket park, training facility, etc. Those were some of my favorite things there, and you HAVE to do it for your admission fee to be worth it. It’s free! I suggest ordering timed tram tickets online to cut in line.
- BRING WATER
You will need this during the tour. I thought I wasn’t going to but it’s still a lot of walking and outdoor time. They sell cold bottled water right by where the tram tour starts but I believe it’s $3.
- BRING CASH
Some food establishments only take cash, so if you plan on eating there, make sure you have some with you!
