Being Geek Chic: Vacation Outfits

No matter where you are going these last few days of summer for a little R&R, there are always ways to incorporate a little geekiness into your outfits. Now, I know I may be weird, but one of my favorite things to do is to plan vacation outfits. I don’t get to do much of that lately since vacationing isn’t as spontaneous or consistent as before, but when I do, it’s like a form of therapy. Plus, it makes it so much easier to get ready in the morning and get to having fun when you already know exactly what you are going to wear!

To show you how easy it is to incorporate your fandoms into your vacation wear, I put together 4 different looks for 4 different destinations.

beach

It’s been so hot down here in Miami lately, that a beach vacation would be at the bottom at my list at the moment. But for those of you up north dying for some sunshine and tropical cocktails (lets face it, I’m always down for those), just pair a geeky one piece with a pair of shorts and a large hat to shade you from those dangerous rays, and you’ll be good to go! I was able to put together this look incorporating geekdom with all three elements – who says you have to stick to just one fandom? Nay, I say!

festival

It’s always been a dream of mine to attend a music festival outside the state, namely: Coachella. I feel like I would probably pass out from heat and feel completely disgusting, but it would be worth it for that incredible line up. I put together this rockin’ outfit for those of you fellow music lovers. I believe the best kind of music is live music, and you’d definitely be able to enjoy it in a fandom tank (special shout out if it ties in with an amazing punk band, like this great Potter/Ramones mashup) and stretchy ripped pants. And, of course, no festival look is complete without a flower crown and big ‘ol shades!

ThinkGeek Opens in Miami

IMG_0512

I was floored when I found out that Miami would be getting a brick and mortar ThinkGeek store. As a total consumer that has no self control, this was both a thrilling and scary concept for me, but I knew I had to be there for the grand opening. It is located in Miami’s Dolphin Mall, which is known by locals for being overpopulated and a general hell hole, so it was absolutely no surprise that grand opening day was crazy. I visited with little Luna in tow, so it was hard for me to really shop. I did a quick lap, which was nearly impossible with a stroller, and snapped some pictures to share with you guys.

Overall, the store is jam packed with goodies! The highlights for me were the Star Wars accessories, giant Pop figure wall (not pictured), and fun geek chic clothing (that Starfleet bodysuit tho). I thought it was so fun that they got a StormTrooper and Kylo to take pictures with fans, and the employees were SO nice. I can’t wait to go back when the hype dies down to shop in peace and really take everything in. Us Miami folk are so lucky to have this in our backyard!

Happy shopping, geeks!

ThinkGeek can be found at The Dolphin Mall, specifically 11401 NW 12th Street, Miami, FL 33172.

iRead: Harry Potter + The Cursed Child

Image-1 (1)

I have been hearing so many opinions about Harry’s newest adventures in the script for The Cursed Child, and here is mine.

I was beyond excited to have more Harry in my life, so I devoured this easy read in two evenings (quite the feat when you are a new mom). It is so important to remember the format of this “book.” It is a script, it is meant to be acted out on stage, so sometimes it may read flat. It also doesn’t flesh out the world the way we are used to reading with JK. That is because it is meant to be fleshed out on stage, and I’m sure is mindblowing and gorgeous. These are things to keep in mind before reading this “book,” and things that I have seen that are popping up in reviews as strikes against it, which isn’t fair.

With that said, lets get into the SPOILER FILLED review. You have been warned. Do not continue if you have not read the script or do not to be spoiled.
