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.

What I Wore: Wizarding goes Retro

IMG_4629

I love all the fashions that are emerging from fandom culture. I especially love the fashion lines that are inspired by geeky films, like Fantastic Beasts! Although Hot Topic has released a few great lines, I fell in love with this adorable retro number from Fun.com. I wanted to put together a throwback look to complement the frock, and also hide my mom hair, so bandana wrap it was! I paired it with my favorite cat eye nude sunnies and my new must have lippie stick from Colourpop. I’d love to tell you that I wore this to the beach or to have mid-day cocktails, but here I am just enjoying my backyard on a beautiful day. Mom life, amirite?

It’s only gotten more and more difficult to wriggle in self care these days, but I am trying my absolute best to slap on some makeup and a cute outfit at least once a week. But I have to be completely honest and admit that leggings and long tunic tees have become my best friend. But don’t tell too many people, ok?

What I Wore; Dream Big, Princess

That newfound love of Disney through the eyes of my child has given me a whole new fandom to explore in regards to outfits, and man, am I having fun. I love that you can wave your freak flag high and proud at Disney and no one bats an eyelash. In fact, it is encouraged. Whenever that is the case, I take this privilege and run with it. Case in point: I bought the most ridiculously large and loud Minnie ears and rocked them for the day at Magic Kingdom. I can’t wait to delve deeper into Disney fashion, but for now I can state with 100% certainty that comfy leggings are the way to go when you are visiting the parks with an insanely active toddler.

What I Wore: My Little Meli

IMG_3912

Geek Girl Brunch Miami joined forces with The Florida Panthers last weekend and we were able to watch the game from Sir Stanley’s Loft, which had the most incredible views. Since we’ve had the most mild “winter” I can remember, I haven’t been able to sport any of my cold weather clothes, so I took this opportunity to finally wear my most amazing My Little Pony jacket. Geek Girl Brunch always has a theme attached to its events in one way or another, so we decided to all wear our favorite wigs to the game. I’ve been obsessed with having lavender hair for awhile now so my Lumpy Space Princess wig was my immediate go-to. Plus, it matched perfectly with the fun, bright colors of the jacket.

What I Wore: A Star War

img_1128-copy

We had our last Geek Girl Brunch of the year opening weekend of Rogue One, so naturally, we made it a viewing brunch. Miami has a dine in theater that is now offering brunch items on their menu, so we went for it! As usual, I had a great time with my geek girls, but man – did that movie blind side me. Sure, you could tell me that I should have known better, but with everything that has been going on this month, I just really didn’t have time to think about movie plots or theories. I cried the.entire.time.

I don’t know if it was just poor timing after all the stress and anxiety I’ve been under after Luna’s hospitalization, but I just lost it. It felt good to have such an ugly cry session though – especially surrounded by nearly 20 other girls doing the exact same.
