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.

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!

What I Wore: Cursed Child

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

Like every other good little Potterhead, I went to the midnight release party of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script at my local independent bookstore. As if attending another midnight release party after nearly 9 years wasn’t exciting enough, it also fell on my birthday weekend (since Potter and I share one – humble brag). How amazing is that? I knew I had to wear something really special, so I got this crop top custom made by Jessica of DressicaDresses. You may remember I featured her shop as one of my favorite Supercon vendors. It was absolutely perfect and the evening was even more so! Sure, it was ridiculously hot in the bookstore and the lines at the bar were out of hand (yes, our indie bookstore also has a bar…and a cafe – we even had live music), but it was such a throwback to those good old Potter days of my past and a great way to celebrate another year of living the geek girl lifestyle.

Now, what did you all think of the script?
I’ll be reviewing it at length on the blog soon!

Tardis Peter Pan Top; if you have followed this blog for some time, you already know my love of the peter pan collar. I just find it so kitschy and whimsical, and it literally transforms any simple look into something a little more special. That’s why a peter pan collar combined with one of my favorite fandoms, Doctor Who, is just a perfect marriage. This cropped tee would look absolutely perfect with a high waisted skirt or jeans. Le swoon!

Magical Girl Gameboy; again, another mashup I’m a big fan of. Growing up in the golden age of Nintendo, Gameboys were all the rage. Combine that with glitter and magical girl symbology? I’m so sold. One up your pin game with this pretty.

Floral Artemis Pin; I stumbled upon the beautiful artistry of Alex Strangler via Instagram stalking and I am so glad I did. She is a tattoo artist that makes the most beautiful accessories and prints, and this Artemis pin is no exception. It’s unfortunately sold out, but there are some temporary tattoos of the design available. If you ask me, I’d prefer the real deal!

Cat Collar Blouse; I’m not a big fan of cats (ugh, allergies), but I do love them on my fashion pieces. This blouse sports the cutest kitty wrapping its little body around your neck (as one does), and I can see it working both for casual Fridays at the office and nights out with your girl gang. Snag this more affordable version on eBay.

Geek Girl Gang Launch

I really can’t believe it, but my store, Geek Girl Gang, has launched as of this morning. The store is opening with my first line of tees, which you can see above. I already have 3 more designs in the works, and my Instagram-popular pin packs will be available very soon. I have big plans for my brand, and hope you guys will enjoy what I produce. My goal was to provide fun + fashionable products for the modern geek girl that doesn’t take herself too seriously. The world is full of darkness – my goal for my online presence as a whole has always been to be a light.

With that said, I’d love it if you could check out the site, let me know what you think and snag a tee or two. ;) Feel free to share my shop with your friends that you think will enjoy it and sign up for our newsletter for updates, sneak peeks & promo codes!

It’s a pretty momentous day for me today.
Regardless of how Geek Girl Gang does, I am allowing myself to celebrate. Not everyone gets to make a dream a reality, and I am proud of myself for overcoming all the fears associated with it.

Cheers to the gang!
