What I Wore: Hello Sweetie

IMG_7457 copy

What does one wear when going to meet a Time Lord?
That is what I had to ask myself last week when I was getting ready for our Geek Girl Brunch Pride, Prejudice and Zombies advanced screening. My co-chapter officer, Aurora, works in journalism, so she was able to secure this amazing event for our brunchettes and had us in the front seat: nabbing a quick meet and greet session with the stars of the movie before the theater Q&A. That meant I was going to meet Matt Smith: the 11th Doctor. My 2nd favorite Doctor. This is a huge deal for us Whovians and you could definitely smell the excitement (aside from everyone’s giant smiles and audible squee’s, of course).

Naturally, I went with sparkles because of who I am as a person. No, if I’m being honest, I definitely needed to wear this amazing tee from Jordan Dene but wanted to dress it up a bit. Thankfully, it was loose enough to fit another (sparkly) shirt underneath. The sequined collar and sleeves totally transformed the look! I paired it with my favorite new pleather leggings (because I’m Regina George-ing my 4th trimester), and the most incredible faux fur vest because it was cold in Miami for once!

What I Wore: Luna Adventures

Hi everyone! I hope you had a killer holiday break – I know I did! My hubs’ employer was amazing enough to gift him with nearly 2 weeks paid leave during the holidays so that he could spend it with us! I can’t tell you how nice it was to have him around to help, and to be able to go out on the town as a family. Luna loves to be out (wonder who she got that from) and we had such fun days together.

Although I’m bummed that I have to face reality soon (my leave ends in 2 weeks), I’m so ready to tackle this year! I love my new role as a mom, and look forward to learning how to balance and have it all in 2016. Here’s to new adventures!

What I Wore: The Force Awakens Premiere

IMG_0355

I finally got to see The Force Awakens this past Saturday! It was also the first date my hubs & I have gone on since Luna was born, which was a really nice and needed outing. Funny story: my hubs and I first met at an advanced screening of Episode II, so I believe our first date after baby to be kismet!

As for the movie, I’m not out to spoil anyone, so I’ll just say I loved it. It exceeded all my expectations and one scene in particular will forever remain engraved in my mind as being so moving. It made me whisper, “it’s about time” to myself with tears in my eyes.

With that said, I knew I had to have fun with my outfit! It was hard to plan with my new post-baby body ever evolving, and I feel like I didn’t nail the look I had in my head 100%, but this new bum seemingly cannot be contained in a skater skirt no matter what size! Also, pro-tip: don’t wear a very short skirt on a very windy day. Derp.

What I Wore: TeeFury Bird Watcher

It’s always pretty incredible when you get to work with companies that you love and admire. As you all can remember, I worked with TeeFury during my pregnancy, and was flattered when they asked me to be a brand ambassador shortly after. I’m so excited to bring you fun posts inspired by their amazing designs! Aside from becoming part of the bird watcher’s club, we hit another milestone: Luna went on her first stroll around the neighborhood! Although she wasn’t the biggest fan (I think it was just really hot & she was too covered up), it was nice to get out of the house and breathe in some fresh (& humid) air. Mama is getting a little cabin fever!

I wish I could tell you that I’m already fitting into my pre-pregnancy clothes, but I’m still 25lbs away from that goal. Thankfully, some of my loose fitting options work and thanks in part to slapping on shapewear a couple of days after coming home from the hospital, I’m starting to get my waist back and a flatter tummy. Now, of course, I’m not saying that that is my main focus at the moment, but you can’t deny that battling the baby blues is easier when you feel good about yourself and the way you look. So for now, I am accentuating my shrinking waist with high-waisted options and fun tees. I’m not going to lie – getting these pictures was not an easy task and they are not my favorite shots, but all we could manage with a wailing baby. I’m sure I’ll learn to balance outfit posts and a baby, but for now, expect them to be a little far and few between.
