What I Wore: To Boldly Go

IMG_6525

Our latest Geek Girl Brunch Miami theme was Star Trek, and I was having a moment. I had the perfect cosplay – a science officer dress that I wore for Halloween a few years back. I happily tried it on and….it no longer fit. My post-baby body just wasn’t having that bodycon fit for anything in the world, so I had to improvise. I’m actually really glad I had to because I would have never stumbled on this amazing neon space themed crop tee.

It was the perfect homage to “the final frontier,” while still keeping me comfortable enough to drink one too many mimosas, socialize with our brunchettes and have an impromptu dance party. Yeah, you heard me. That’s how Miami does brunch: with DJ’s.

Can we also have a moment of silence (or squee-ing?) for Studio DIY’s Can’t Clutch This subscription? My pop tart clutch is TOO.MUCH. It literally gives me so much joy every month, and who doesn’t need a little bit of that in their life?

1; Can’t Clutch This – if you haven’t heard of Studio DIY‘s subscription service, you must do so. For a ridiculously low price ($20), you get the most adorable clutch every month. I mean, look at the newest design. I simply cannot. Sure, they rope you in with extra accessories that you can not deny, but still so amazing. I am absolutely obsessed and think you should be too.

2; Usagi Bunny Pin – so there may be a theme to this month’s post because the need for kawaii is so strong these days! There are a lot of Luna and Artemis pins, but I love this variation on the cute Sailor Moon homage. I’ve always had a soft spot for Usagi’s comforter bunnies, so this one speaks to my heart and soul. Newest fandom jacket addition? Check!

3; Rainbow Skirt; I cannot have enough rainbow print anything, so naturally this one from ModCloth jumped out to me. It is the perfect summer staple, paired with one of my favorite geeky tees. In fact, now I feel like this needs to happen for SDCC!

4; Sparkle Booties – in case you haven’t noticed, my style aesthetic is rock ‘n roll geek, and these fit in so perfectly. RIGHT? I am head over heels for them and feel like they may be one of the horcruxes needed to bring Bowie back. Because Bowie left horcruxes. RIGHT? I just want these boots, OK. OKAY.

What I Wore; Impromptu Date Night

IMG_5543

Date nights are far and few between these days, so when babysitting was offered at the last minute last week, we took it and ran! Although we didn’t end up making the right decision (not impressed with CityPlace Doral), we had a great time with each other catching up. In fact, I don’t think we talked about baby stuff once! Adult conversations: success.

At first, I have to admit that LulaRoe seemed silly to me. I thought it was clothes that housewives wore in the Midwest (no offense to housewives that may read my blog in the Midwest), so I didn’t even look into it. But I’ve been pleasantly surprised – I really dig their dresses, and especially skirts. They are SO comfortable. I still don’t like 80% of their patterns, but I find myself scouring through different consultant’s inventory to find the right ones. This Cassie skirt in mustard yellow is pure perfection. I feel sexy, while still comfy. I pumped up the comfort level by pairing it with an oversized crop tee + sneakers.

This outfit, my fresh new ‘do (bangs are back!) + plenty of vodka tonics were more than enough to keep this mama happy.

1. Fandom Notebooks; I adore writing in notebooks and journals. I have so many of them, I can’t even keep track of them. Seriously, I find them whenever I decide to tidy things up in random rooms of my house. Most of the time, unused. And I keep buying more. Someone please tell me I’m not alone. Since I’m not going to stop collecting them any time soon, these beautiful Doctor Who ones would have been great, but unfortunately, the store is on a permanent hiatus. Whimper. Lets admire from afar, shall we?

2. Deathly Hallows cap; I am so obsessed with baseball caps lately. I think they make the perfect addition to a summer outfit, and a great way to add fandom to any outfit. This hallows cap is absolutely everything, and since it’s black…it goes with everything too. Win/win.

3. Minnie donut; Little known fact: I craved donuts a whole lot towards the end of my pregnancy. Since I’m gluten intolerant, I knew it wasn’t going to happen, but now that I am not pregnant, I have cheated here and there for the right one. If this Minnie donut actually existed, it would be worth the cheat by far. For now, I’ll settle on wearing it on my lapel.

4. Sanrio duffel; There is a piece of me that thinks this needs to be my carry on for SDCC. I don’t care how ridiculous or loud it is (I mean, when have I ever), or the high probability that it can probably hold less than half of a regular carry on. It is a total compulsive and irrational buy and it’s totally going to happen. At least I’m honest.

What I Wore: Be Our Guest

IMG_4902

I was very excited to take control of the Disney Princess brunch for Geek Girl Brunch Miami. My life has been encompassed by Disney since having a child, and I have no shame when I say that Luna is a Disney kid. She is obsessed with Mickey Mouse and Elena of Avalor. Although Belle is definitely not my favorite princess (I know, gasp), I had to honor the new film by snagging this adorable replica of Belle’s famous gold dress for Lulu. I also LOVED the movie. Anyone else?

It was also the first time I wore a petticoat (ouch, itchy), and I loved feeling so flouncy and feminine. It was also sweet to see so many little girls looking at me like I truly came out of one of their fairytales. I can’t recommend Bonne Chance Collections enough for your kawaii clothing needs. I am beyond obsessed after making this purchase, and am pretty sure I’m just going to fill my closet with a bunch of their creations. As if you needed it, there is currently a flash sale going on – everything is $29.99! Thank me (or hate me) later.
