Fashionably Nerdy

fnfacebook

I am so proud to announce that I have joined the Fashionably Nerdy family as their Geek Chic Mom & Kids correspondent. I had followed the girls for some time and viewed them as The Fangirl Diaries‘ West Coast counterpart (it was really sweet that they did too). I always loved their content and I got the chance to meet Stephanie at the SherlockedCC event last year at San Diego Comic Con. That kind of solidified my love for the site and their team, so needless to say, I couldn’t have been happier when they approached me to join! I’ll be blogging and vlogging about all things fashionably geeky (naturally) when it comes to maternity and motherhood. I can’t wait to share a little more about this new chapter in my life and hope you all enjoy the ride!

You can check out my first post about how to dress your bump with crop tops (no, I’m not lying) here.

What I Wore: Free Comic Book Day

I know it’s been a couple of weeks since Free Comic Book Day, but I hope all of you were able to participate and have a great time! I’m a little embarrassed to say that our favorite local comic book shop, Tate’s, had such an enormous line for free comics that we opted to just spend money in-store instead! We got some great toys, books and art, and I was even able to leave some Geek Girl Brunch flyers behind! Overall, it was a really great day and such an appropriate time to sport my new Harry Potter polo from 1138 Clothing.

This adorable top is often paired with a custom made house skirt, but my expanding mid-section did not allow me to pick up a matching skirt. All is well though. This keeps me and Luna open to all houses. ;)

Nerdy Must Haves

Sailor Moon Leggings; Since my belly began expanding with my pregnancy, I am in desperate search for comfort paired with fashion. I’ve found that leggings do this best! I can push them down under my belly and feel such relief, but when paired with a tunic top can look so chic and stylish. That’s why geeky leggings are my new best friends, and I am all about TeeFury’s new line – especially these Sailor Moon ones!

Mother of Dragons Tee; Like most ladies, I love me some Daenerys Targaryen. She’s the ultimate bad ass female – I mean, she birthed DRAGONS, you guys. Who doesn’t want to be able to say that? I definitely have to rock this tee at some point in my pregnancy because although she may not be a literal dragon, I know my little Luna is going to be a fiery one. ;)

LSP Sweater; So I know I featured a LSP cardigan last time and now here I am with a sweatshirt, but I honestly can’t help myself. I think Lumpy is fresh to death and I’d love to wear her all over my body (weird?). Too bad it’s unbearably hot right now in Miami or I’d order one stat (if they weren’t sold out).

LightSaber Rattle; Do you want to die? Because I do. How cute is this adorable lightsaber rattle??? Sometimes it is very difficult to shop geeky for a little baby girl, but leave it to Etsy to do the trick. This was promptly put on our registry.

What I Wore: Modern Witch

As most of you know, last weekend was the first Geek Girl Brunch Miami, and I clearly had to dress the part. Unfortunately, the outfit I had planned didn’t make it to my mailbox in time, so I had to improvise. Now rocking a bump, improvising isn’t that easy, but I think I made it work. For all those preggo ladies, or just those that are curious on how they can make outfits work when they are preggo one day, I swear by the maxi dress.

Not just a boring maxi dress, of course, but throwing a fandom crop (or tank) over it. You will probably see this in some way, shape or form over the span of my pregnancy, so I’m sorry for that. I grabbed my Gryffindor crop and pulled it on top of a comfy maxi, paired it with my favorite witch hat and bam! A modern take on Hermione on her way to brunch with her girlfriends.

My First Rocksbox

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 4.47.54 PM

This month was the month of subscription boxes! Earlier, I received my first Rocksbox. What’s that? For $19 a month, you get a box containing 3 pieces of beautiful designer jewelry worth up to $200! Feel free to wear it as much or as little as you want, and when you have had your fill, go ahead and send it back. As soon as you do, you get another fun box full of new sparkly goodies. Plus, if you fall in love with any of the pieces and just have to have it, there is always the option to buy! For an accessory addict like myself, it was a no brainer.
