Geek Chic: Day of the Doctor

July 17th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

As you all know, I got a Doctor Who tattoo this past weekend (read about why here). I know it may have been a little cheesy, but I thought I should go at least moderately themed out, right? I decided to take the iconic Tardis blue and incorporate it into my entire outfit. I made sure the pieces I chose were lightweight and comfortable, since I was going to be sitting down in a very tense position for hours, most probably while sweating profusely (hi, anxiety). I added the true touch of geek with a Tardis trucker-style hat, which I plan on wearing every day of my life thankyouverymuch.

For the rest of this week, I plan on showcasing all the different ways you can pair these great pair of shorts from Conversation Pieces. I found them to be so versatile – they can work for so many occasions! Obviously, this first look is how to rock them casually.

What I Wore: Cruel Summer

July 15th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

This summer has been a particularly cruel one in South Florida. We have been getting nasty storms nearly every day, which have been impeding on our sunshine state activities. In between thunderstorms, the humidity has been off the charts and our mosquitoes clearly have a ruthless agenda against all mankind. In a nutshell: stay indoors.

Thankfully this past weekend gave us some sort of respite, and I was actually able to enjoy my pool for the first time this summer (sacrilegious). I was also able to take these photos without fearing an impeding storm, but it was still quite steamy. To fight the unbearable heat, sometimes you just gotta go basic. I can already tell this tee is going to be a summer staple. It’s light, so incredibly soft and in an amazing Miami color. It also gives you the ability to rock the half-tuck, which is my new favorite. It really highlights your silhouette while still remaining casual. Win/win? Yes.

What I Wore: Pool Side

June 23rd, 2014 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

I hope all of you enjoyed the first official weekend of Summer! I got to spend some quality time with friends I haven’t seen in a bit, and then had brunch with the hubs at a local hot spot. I ended it with a 2-hour float in my pool, where I promptly fell asleep (don’t worry, sunblock was applied). Overall, a pretty successful weekend.

Since it was our first taste of Summer, I had to don the unofficial uniform: the maxi dress! Who doesn’t love a good maxi? They make you look classy and stylish, yet feel like an adult pajama. This one especially is so soft, and I love that its tie dye color scheme compliments my swimming pool. It was meant to be.

Geek Chic: Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Batman!

June 19th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

This past weekend, The Fangirl Diaries recorded our 3rd podcast and I’m pretty sure you can tell what our main subject matter was! We had a blast, as always, and despite some technical difficulties were able to deliver another fun discussion about all things geeky in pop culture. I’m kind of obsessed at the moment with pairing a fandom tee and a high waisted skirt. I just think it is so flattering to all body types. This little swingy skirt from Nordstrom Rack does just that perfectly. It’s soft and comfy, which makes it a fabulous go-to when wanting to dress up your geeky look. I’m sure it won’t be the first time you see it on the blog!

Geek Out: Maleficent

June 2nd, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

As you can all imagine, I was pretty stoked for the premiere of Disney’s Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie. I was there opening night and wanted to make sure I dressed the part. Although the horns pictured were the bestie’s, I think I paid tribute to my favorite Disney villain while still staying geek chic. Unfortunately, Disney did not. I was disappointed in the way they portrayed Maleficent, whom to me is a very powerful female character. However, I’ll stop there. Our full review is posted on The Fangirl Diaries Youtube channel so make sure to check it out!
