What I Wore: SDCC Ready

It’s only one month until SDCC 2017 is in full swing, and I’ve begun planning my outfits. This year is all about comfort, while still being true to my fun and feminine aesthetic. There is a lot I can’t wait to share with you all about this year’s visit, but for now, here is one of my favorite SDCC outfits that I have put together to date.

Tee; Geek Girl Gang
Skirt; LulaRoe
Kicks; Target
Shades; Gap {similar}

I remember how I came up with the “comic con is my cardio” design. I was literally at SDCC, running from one event to the next. I was out of breath and sweaty. I looked over to my friend who was running next to me, and said “comic con is my cardio.” Then I stopped, and realized: that should be on a shirt. Geek Girl Gang wasn’t born for another 2 years, but the idea stayed with me. I’m so (gag)blessed(gag) to be able to be wearing my designs this year to con, and knowing other people will be too. I mean…how crazy rad is that?

I’m also test running how my Lularoe Cassie skirts do on the road during strenuous conditions. I love the way they look with my tees, and immediately makes a simple look turn up a notch to be a little sexier (sign me up!). I turn it down again by pairing it with sneakers and voila! My perfect little fashion nook.

Here’s hoping I’m comfy and cute at this year’s SDCC!
Who else will be joining me?

What I Wore: To Boldly Go

IMG_6525

Our latest Geek Girl Brunch Miami theme was Star Trek, and I was having a moment. I had the perfect cosplay – a science officer dress that I wore for Halloween a few years back. I happily tried it on and….it no longer fit. My post-baby body just wasn’t having that bodycon fit for anything in the world, so I had to improvise. I’m actually really glad I had to because I would have never stumbled on this amazing neon space themed crop tee.

It was the perfect homage to “the final frontier,” while still keeping me comfortable enough to drink one too many mimosas, socialize with our brunchettes and have an impromptu dance party. Yeah, you heard me. That’s how Miami does brunch: with DJ’s.

Can we also have a moment of silence (or squee-ing?) for Studio DIY’s Can’t Clutch This subscription? My pop tart clutch is TOO.MUCH. It literally gives me so much joy every month, and who doesn’t need a little bit of that in their life?

What I Wore; Impromptu Date Night

IMG_5543

Date nights are far and few between these days, so when babysitting was offered at the last minute last week, we took it and ran! Although we didn’t end up making the right decision (not impressed with CityPlace Doral), we had a great time with each other catching up. In fact, I don’t think we talked about baby stuff once! Adult conversations: success.

Top; Uniqlo
Skirt; LulaRoe
Sneakers; Target
Lips; Colourpop’s Mars

At first, I have to admit that LulaRoe seemed silly to me. I thought it was clothes that housewives wore in the Midwest (no offense to housewives that may read my blog in the Midwest), so I didn’t even look into it. But I’ve been pleasantly surprised – I really dig their dresses, and especially skirts. They are SO comfortable. I still don’t like 80% of their patterns, but I find myself scouring through different consultant’s inventory to find the right ones. This Cassie skirt in mustard yellow is pure perfection. I feel sexy, while still comfy. I pumped up the comfort level by pairing it with an oversized crop tee + sneakers.

This outfit, my fresh new ‘do (bangs are back!) + plenty of vodka tonics were more than enough to keep this mama happy.

What I Wore: My Little Meli

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: Murder Boyfriend

img_1124

One thing is for certain in this crazy world: there will never be a shortage of fun at Geek Girl Brunch Miami. Getting to plan geeky events all over Miami with my best friend is really the best stress relief possible, and this month’s brunch was a blast! Since it was October, we decided to make the theme Murder Boyfriends, a term coined from the depths of Tumblr to describe Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham’s relationship on Fuller’s Hannibal. Naturally, I had to casually cosplay as my favorite cannibal.
