What I Wore: I Know My Value


Can someone start playing “The Final Countdown?” Because that’s where I’m at right now! In these pictures, I was a pleasantly plump, but happy 35 weeks. Things are starting to ache and bother, but I’m still pretty petite which allows me a little more energy and mobility than most. The hubs and I had one of our usual foodie day dates in Wynwood, and we were able to visit some pretty amazing little markets, such as Flavorish & Marky’s, and had lunch at Ms. Cheezious (do you know they now offer their sandwiches on gluten free bread???). We picked up so many delicious little treats and fantasized about having picnics with our little one in the future.

As usual, Jordan Dene’s tanks keep me super comfy. I love that I don’t have to rely on maternity and can still let my geek flag fly as often as possible. I’m loving her new line of tees – this one being a quote from Agent Carter. Make sure to check out her site – it is chock full of goodies for yourself AND the geeky little ones in your life!

Geeky Baby Shower: Fandom Elements


I had my absolutely amazing baby shower last month at Earls in Dadeland Mall. The venue was beyond perfection and the staff even better. But what really made the shower special (aside from all the love in the air), was the little fandom touches I made in decor.I figured I would share these touches with all of you in case you are wondering how you can incorporate some geekiness into more formal events and parties. And yes, I planned and orchestrated my entire baby shower. I’m a control freak and I do what I want. Plus, I think I’m pretty darn good at it. ;)

For those of you wondering what I was wearing, my dress was from Dorothy Perkins and all my accessories (including flower hair pins) and shoes were from Forever 21. My entire outfit cost me no more than $80!

I knew I wanted there to be a geeky vibe in decor throughout the shower, but wanted to make sure it was subtle. I decided to go with writing some of my favorite quotes from some of my favorite fandoms on little chalkboard easels or place cards. The easels were from Target, while the chalkboard place cards were from Hobby Lobby. I sharpened up on my chalkboard art skills by looking through Pinterest and copying my favorite designs and layouts. Although time consuming, it was relaxing and I honestly was very surprised with the results. Word to the wise, don’t use regular chalk – a chalk pencil will give you much better lines and control especially if you will be writing/drawing on design elements as small as mine. Each of these easels or place cards were placed on the tables, along with a mason jar full of baby’s breath and gold-glittered antlers, which were my homage to Hannibal. I finished the centerpiece look with a little gold animal to tie in a childlike element all the while sitting on top of a wooden slab.

Although I could have gone crazy with geekiness, I wanted our shower to be simple and modern. Our venue was already very aesthetically pleasing to my style so I let it speak for itself. However, all the fellow geeks in attendance definitely took note of what I incorporated, which is exactly what I was hoping for and everyone else just found the quotes sweet. Overall, it was an awesome day with awesome people that I will cherish forever!

What I Wore: Doctor Who?

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

South Florida’s 3rd Geek Girl Brunch was held yesterday and it was such a blast! We were lucky to be hosted by the fabulous Bad Boys of England Pub in Dania Beach, FL and even had our own little private room to get all wibbly wobbly and timey wimey. Aside from the fun surrounding the event, I had a blast styling some pretty amazing Doctor Who fashion! It’s not easy getting ready for our Geek Girl Brunches lately, so I thank the heavens for stretchy skater dresses. They give me the comfort I am really desiring lately, while still accenting my belly in the cutest way! This one by KYOCAT Clothing is beyond adorable. Being in the geek fashion world, it can get tiring to see the same Doctor Who dresses at events, so when I saw this beautiful ribcage design with two beating Doctor hearts, I immediately fell in love. I always support independent designers and Marlo behind KYOCAT makes some pretty stunning pieces. I am personally lusting after her Sailor Moon designs!

And this hat. Lets talk about the amazingness of it, shall we? I adore all kinds of hair party, so I naturally had to snag this beautiful TARDIS floppy hat by Geeky U. The craftsmanship is beyond, and it really helps shield from the insane Miami sun. I can’t wait to wear it for what’s left of our summer – how cute would this look paired with a bikini?

The Bodhi Tree House Grand Opening – Miami


A couple weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of a new holistic store in Wynwood, The Bodhi Tree House. It was tucked away in some warehouse space, but I was absolutely blown away when I walked inside. It really looked like you were in a treehouse. It was like something out of a Wes Anderson movie mixed with a little bit of magic. It’s impossible not to feel serene and at peace while in the tree house, and everything they offer is so up my alley.


Crystals and mysticism have become a big part of my life for the past year, and I loved being in such a spiritual healing environment. Naturally, a packed grand opening party doesn’t lend itself to too much calm, but I can’t wait to visit soon and actually shop and look into some of their classes. I also loved that they had a little cafe in the back of the store offering healthy treats. I was able to enjoy crystal-infused water for the first time, which was pretty neat.

What I Wore: Earl Jeans Brunch


A couple of weeks ago, I got the chance to attend a blogger brunch hosted by the lovely Netty of The Fashionable ESQ. We’ve been friends since high school and although we don’t see each other all the time, we always make it a point to support each other and our endeavors, and I absolutely love that. Plus, we start exactly where we left off every time we spend time together, which is always the hallmark of a true friendship. She is working with Earl Jeans, and they were wonderful enough to send all attendees some great pieces to wear while Love is Blind provided the absolutely delicious eats and tasty cocktails (that I could not enjoy – wah).

Now entering my 7th month of pregnancy, I was thrilled that this embellished top fit, and complemented my new maternity jeans from Old Navy so well. It also felt great to rock a heel (in the form of a wedge) for the day after schlubbing it in sandals for so long. I decided to pair this look with some Doctor Who elements, which tied in perfectly with the dark blue tones. Overall, it felt nice to dress up and spend some girl time with favorites and make some new friends in the process.
