I recently entered a giveaway hosted by Geek Girl Gang on Instagram and I won!! I was soo surprised! I wanted to buy their “Geek Girl Gang” pin and fell in love with their “Comics and Champagne” shirt after seeing it so this giveaway was perfect. To make the look more me, I decided to pair this cute (and comfy) shirt with my light purple skirt and mint green cardigan to add color to the look. You’ve probably noticed I like wearing color. I’m digging how the styling turned out!

I wore this adorable look out to coffee with my friends and a guy stopped to ask about my shirt. His wife really liked it and they wanted to know where I got it. I love moments like those! Connecting with strangers over common interests. I think that’s why I love wearing nerdy clothing or pins all over my bags. You have an immediate connection.
I’m loving that so many small businesses are embracing things deemed “nerdy” and making products that allow us, the consumer, to showcase our passions. We can wear shirts with our favorite superheroes on them. Shops like Her Universe and Jordandené now make it easy to look stylish and geeky all at the same time. Now more than ever we have a ton of options when it comes to showing the world what’s in our hearts.
How do you wear your nerdy loves on your sleeve?
I hope you’re having a great day!! Today’s post features an adorable long sleeve dress! The weather has started to warm up so I wanted to pull this cutie out of the closet before it got too hot. I adore the dashing little scallop collar and the cute matching sleeves. The fabric is super-stretchy so it’s comfy to wear around town. I wore this little number on Saturday for a hangout sesh with Fletch and our friend Shauna.

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you all had a spectacular day. I spent my day hanging out with my super-rad brother, Dayton, and my awesome (and super-cute) partner, Fletch. We had a great time eating a scrumptious brunch and walking around Seattle. Fletch’s Mom is in Memphis and my Mother passed last year so getting together with family seemed like the best plan for today. It was perfect.
This weekend was… interesting, to say the least. On Wednesday evening Fletch realized our toilet was clogged. He spent 30 minutes trying to get the darn thing fixed with no luck. This isn’t an unusual thing for our house. The house we rent is old and we’ve had issues in the past with the plumbing. On Thursday a plumber comes out and determines that it’s too complicated for him and that someone else has to come out. On Friday a plumber comes out and spends hours messing with the plumbing. When I come home we check on the bathroom only to find a pool of sewage water all over the ground. I won’t go into too much detail but it was a crappy situation (literally) and poo was everywhere. At this point we could no longer use the plumbing for fear of screwing up more stuff. The plumber on Friday found a hole in the pipe under the house so water was everywhere down there. So, Friday we stayed at a hotel and headed back to the house to check on things Saturday.
Today I went to a fun blogger event in Seattle. My super-awesome friend, Jessica, attended the event with me. She doesn’t blog but she always enjoys trying new things. We started talking about attending blogging events and trying new things. Of course, now as I sit here before going to bed, I’m thinking about how blogging has taken me out of my comfort zone. I’ve tried so many new things thanks to my blog: I visited Austin for a blogging conference, a trip I took all by myself (which was terrifying); I tried new foods (some I’ve liked and some I didn’t); and I saw the tulip fields and took some adorable photos! I think you get the point. I’ve done some cool stuff and I’ve done so many new things because of my blog.
To people who know me they might think I’m a super outgoing person. In many respects I can be. If I’m going somewhere new or going somewhere alone I get really nervous. Meeting new people initially freaks me out and it’s not until I’m in an environment for a little while that I get comfortable. Once I’m comfortable I can be super-outgoing but it takes me a little while to get me there. Blogging has helped me face that anxiety head on. I’m also not one to try something new without typically being nudged into it.
I eat the same meals when I go to restaurants and take the same route home from work–I like my routine. Since having a blog I’ve tried to be more active at finding new things to try out. I want to provide interesting content to all of you lovely peeps so I go to events, I eat weird foods and take photos/videos, and I test out new stuff. I’ve put myself out there a lot more over the past few years and that’s pretty darn cool.
I’m so glad I started blogging when I did. I’ve developed into a person much more willing to try new things and I’m thankful for that. I’m really happy with where I am.
