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!

Funny enough, my shirt helped me recruit a couple of new Geek Girl Brunch members while eating lunch at Yardhouse! If you love it as much as I do, you’ll have a chance to win your own at next month’s Sailor Moon brunch. If you won’t be in attendance, fear not!

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: I Know My Value

IMG_5460

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!

TeeFury’s Potter Power

IMG_5562

Teefury has always been a force to reckon with when it comes to geeky fashion. They started with just tees of the day, and expanded to have a whole gallery of amazing shirt designs and are now tackling shoes and leggings! My obsession with the site became so serious that I used to have it as my home screen. That is, when I would open the Internet, their homepage would show up first, immediately filling me in on what their shirt of the day was. My collection became so large, I couldn’t shut my tee drawer anymore and decided to take a shopping hiatus. What worked in my favor was that I became pregnant shortly after. Unfortunately, I just realized that all I have to do is size up and I can continue to rock their amazing tees as witnessed in this post. Fail.

I decided to match up this incredible Potter/Quidditch tee with my favorite pair of Old Navy skinnies and my new NYX lip cream in Bewitched. I thought it made a great dupe for those new Potter shades being offered by LA Splash Cosmetics. Together, I think I played the part of an excited fangirl witch enjoying the game with paraphernalia and butter beer in hand.
