What I Wore: Modern Witch

_MG_8180

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.

Fandom of the Month Club

It’s that wonderful time of the month again: Fandom of the Month delivery time!

As you can remember, I posted about my first delivery a little while ago on the blog. I was so excited to see that it was Doctor Who themed, and I was equally as excited to see this month’s: Harry Potter! It was like kismet with our first Geek Girl Brunch having the same theme just this past weekend (post for that coming very soon)! I mean, my nails even matched, people. It was meant to be.

Accio Baby!

Needless to say, after 7 years of marriage and a heartbreaking loss, we are SO excited to welcome a little bit of magic into our lives this coming October! I can’t wait to share the journey here on the blog, and hope to bring all the geek chic you expect to mommyhood.

Accio baby!

Nerdy Must Haves

Who Leggings; Leggings are a girl’s best friend. Why? They are easy to pack, feel like you are wearing pajamas and come in all sorts of fandoms. What’s not to love? Personally, I’m all about this new pair from TeeFury. Although I’m not the happiest with their sneaker line (dude, lay off the priciness), this new line of leggings is spot on. I wish I would have been able to snag a pair before next weekend’s MegaCon! Boo hoo.

Gryffindor Tee; This is one of the better designed house shirts I’ve seen in awhile. I love the large house animal combined with each house’s characteristics. Naturally, I chose my own house to showcase, but fear not. They come in all houses, shapes and colors (er, maybe). It’s also temporarily on sale so treat yoself while you can!

Potter flats; OK, so there is going to be kind of a theme during this post of must haves. I am completely and utterly obsessed with this beautifully designed flats from Electrique Sole on Etsy. Considering the prices I’ve seen for other custom shoes, they are a steal at $45 and are completely adorable. Again, I wish I could have scooped up a pair for Megacon, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to take advantage and order them for April’s first Geek Girl Brunch!

Hogwarts T-Shirt Dress; Another great Potter find. This shirt dress looks so comfy and the perfect addition to any convention wardrobe. Just pair it with a denim jacket and some cute sneakers and you are good to go. Added plus? You can rock this adorable look for Sunday brunch, running errands or date night! It’s so versatile and subtle. A total score if you ask me.

Potter crop top; I love it when designs include elements of a fandom only. It instantly makes it super-fan relatable and will cause little knowing smirks everywhere you go. This crop top is the perfect example. How cute would this be paired with a high waisted skirt or shorts? It’s definitely going on my list of outfits for my next Wizarding World adventure!

JK & Radcliffe holy candle; I met the creator of these hysterical holy fandom candles at Shock Pop a couple of weeks ago. She is a complete doll and her products are amazing. Unfortunately, this specific design was sold out at her booth, but I found it on her Etsy shop! If you have a wicked sense of humor, you will get a kick out of all her candle designs. I personally can’t wait for a reason to gift one – these make excellent gag gifts for the fangirl/fanboy in your life!

Potter alphabet cards; I can’t even deal with the cuteness that is the Afternoon Coffee Etsy shop. I’m obsessed. Mainly due to these Harry Potter alphabet cards. How adorable would they be in a kid’s room (or an adult’s)?? Check out the rest of her store too if you are a Potter Head. I promise your eyes will be overjoyed and your wallet will be depressed.

Unicorn phone case; This baby is unfortunately out of stock on Asos, but how perfect is it? Granted, I’m sure it would be a little bulky to carry around, but on the plus side, you’d never lose it in a crowded purse, am I right?? Plus, it’s a freaking unicorn. That trumps all.
