What I Wore: Chris Pratt Fangirl

_MG_0424

I’m sure you have seen the hilarious fangirl tees that you can purchase on Look Human. I made fun of them at first because they seemed ridiculous, but you know what? They make me laugh and instantly make an outfit more lighthearted while still displaying your fandoms. Plus, they are definitely conversation starters. I like pairing them with something other than jeans to create a more kitschy and fun vibe. My bump had me repurpose this tutu midi skirt into a dress and I threw the tee over it. Adding the polka dot sneakers made it more whimsical, which is the look I wanted to go for and tend to go for on a daily basis. Plus, it makes it much more comfortable for these sensitive pregnant feet!

I have a huge crush on Chris Pratt that has only grown exponentially since becoming a total Parks & Rec fan. Add Guardians and Jurassic World to the mix, and I am beyond hooked. I don’t know if I want to make out with him or be his best friend, which signifies the perfect relationship, right? Call me, Chris (sorry hubs).

BabyMoon Essentials

Colorful-Baby-Moon-Angel-Graphic

So next week, the hubs and I will be embarking on a much deserved BabyMoon. What is that, you ask? Well, it’s a new trend where couples take a vacation during pregnancy – similar to a honeymoon. As my pregnancy progresses, I realized I hadn’t gone on vacation since right before I found out I was pregnant and I’m really needing one more than ever. My feet have grown sore and I’m pretty tired on a constant basis. The idea of just laying around being pampered by the sea sounds exactly like what I need right now.

We’ll be heading to The Florida Keys for 4 days to do exactly that. Now it’s not the easiest vacation to dress for since I’m expanding a little more these days, so I thought I’d help out other expectant moms and just travelers in general with some great beach essentials for those upcoming summer getaways.

Now this is an area that you can really play with even when pregnant. It may be difficult to find really cute and fun pieces to wear, but it’s a free for all when it comes to accessories! Since we are going the beach route, I wanted to make sure I had a little¬†brightness and silliness. No one takes themselves too seriously on the beach – much less in The Keys.

What I Wore: Lumpy Space Princess Cosplay

DSCF3852

This past weekend was Miami’s biggest comic book convention, Florida Supercon. It’s held on Miami Beach and hosts an array of vendors and special guests (still a little bummed Billie Piper canceled). Although it ain’t no SDCC, it is the best we have here in South Florida and I really appreciate the push to support geeky culture down here. I have faith that in a few years, SuperCon may grow to be one of the best in the country.

I knew I wanted to cosplay, but also knew I would be rocking a nearly 6 month baby bump. I immediately got to thinking about what I could make work with a more round shape, and then it came to me: OH MY GLOB! Clearly, I had to be Adventure Time’s Lumpy Space Princess. It was a hit and for the most part, comfortable. I was just completely drained by the end of the day – I ain’t what I used to be. ;)

What I Wore: Birds & Babies

_MG_9940

This past weekend we were invited to one of our closest friends’ son’s 1st birthday party. It was so amazing to see how many of our friends were toting around tots! In fact, I’m pretty sure my best friend and I were the only ones without kiddos at the party (my inside baby doesn’t count just yet). We got a lot of “are you ready for all this?” comments, and naturally, we said no. Who is really? But despite probably not being ready for the madness ahead, we couldn’t be happier or more excited.

My birdie tunic top was a hit and flattered my growing bump perfectly. I was comfy enough to play around with kiddos, but chic enough to look extremely put together. Definitely look for these cuts and styles while dressing your bump. You more than likely will not go wrong and when paired with the right accessories, such as my favorite witch hat, you will always look the part of modern and hip mama.

What I Wore: Sherlocked

_MG_9757

The Geek Girl Brunch Miami chapter had its 2nd brunch a couple of weeks ago, and the ladies chose Sherlock as the theme! Naturally, I was thrilled since it’s in my top 5 fandoms, so it was a blast to plan. I’ll elaborate more about it next week, but for now, you get to check out how I styled for the event 5 months pregnant.

It wasn’t easy. I have a lot of Sherlock apparel, but sadly, I am entering the “nothing really fits” realm when it comes to some of my fandom gear. I never want to just wear a t-shirt (I know, I’m speaking Miami girl right now), and my adorable Sherlock dress from Gold Bubble Clothing was skin tight before I started creating a little human. That left me with a pair of damask tights that kind-of replicated the infamous wallpaper we now all know and love. It’s actually almost the exact outfit I wore to last year’s SherlockedCC party at San Diego Comic Con with a few modifications!

Once again, leggings saved the day for this pregnant geek and I just piled high with related accessories to complete my fangirl look for the day. ;)
