Tatoos, glasses, vintage outfits, and comics make up this fun engagement shoot! I tried finding the source of these awesome comic book engagement pictures but unfortunately, the source I found, When Geeks Wed, is down. You can still access their Pinterest & Facebook for more inspiration.

Video Game Wedding Session

I know it’s not “engagement” BUT steal these ideas! I love the colors and simplicity and just how happy these two look holding their 3DS’s. Bring along your own 3DS’s or controllers for a fun video game element in your wedding photos. These two are just adorable!

Gaming Couple Engagement Session

Do you and your SO enjoy console gaming together? Why not stage an awesome engagement shoot in your home featuring the two of you bonding (and competing) in a game! This shoot turned out awesome!

My favorite engagement shoot so far! I’m biased by my love of the Tenth Doctor but these two are just an amazing couple to put this session together! And of course, they had a rad photographer. For more Doctor Who engagement photography inspo, check out their page!

MCFT: Librarian Chic

MCFT: Librarian Chic

MCFTLibrarian

So I am obsessed with the librarian look. You can make it edgy or hipster or preppy. It can be casual or business casual. It’s versatile and trendy but timeless. I can’t wait to try it myself! *Some affiliate links have been used. Check out my about me page to learn more about these links.

Both of these looks from Someone Like You remind me of Belle, the original Disney bookworm. The light blue shirt with white buttons is reminiscent of her first “peasant” dress. The mustard yellow cardigan is for her ball gown, and the burgundy dress is for her winter cloak. The scalloped edges on both of these outfits give them a whimsical feel.

To achieve this librarian chic look try this dress in burgundy, this cardigan in mustard, these boots in brown, and these tights in white.

More burgundy and mustard from Frocks and Frou Frou! I really love this color palette!

What caught my eye for these outfits were the classic shoes and the cute tee paired with a midi skirt. These look effortless and put together without being frumpy. You can roll straight out of bed and put these outfits together! No pre-planning required!

Recreate her second look with this HP t-shirt in white, this mustard skirt, this burgundy cardigan, this belt in coffee, and these shoes in Tobacco. Add a black Peter Pan collar for more fun then tie it all together with a fun Hogwarts lapel pin from Sore Winners on Etsy.

Love quirky accessories and even quirkier staple pieces? ME TOO! You can check out my quirky accessory Pinterest board here. Also, I’m obsessed with foxes right now, too. And probably forever because they are amazing and totally my spirit animal.

Bleu Avenue has captured my heart with her classic outfits and quirky accessories that she sneaks in – like that typewriter purse! Her outfits just scream librarian chic. But don’t scream in the library; that’s not cool.

For this foxy outfit, try this sweater in fox stone, this plaid skirt from Modcloth in extended sizes (I NEED!), and these black flats.

Last but not least is what I call the punk librarian. The bookworm with an edge. The reader with a dark soul… Le Happy has some awesome edgy outfits that could be for work or play on her blog and IG. You should totally check her out.

To give your librarian look an edge, try this boyfriend blazer from Maurice’s, this collared top or this cap sleeve top (both from Mod Cloth), these slim pants in black, these chunky ankle booties, this leather messenger bag, these rings from Torrid, and this lace choker that is also from Torrid.

5 Fandom Friday: Apps I Can’t Live Without

five-fandom-friday1

If you’re like me, your phone is always at your side. You play your music on it, call your mom on it, watch funny cat videos on it. It’s a great tool for daily use, especially for me. I’m either sending a text, checking my calendar or putting in my meals to calorie count so my phone sees a lot of use. If I had to pick only five apps to have on my phone, it’d be these!

 

Pinterest

Recipes? Check. Outfits? Check. DIY? Check. Home decor? Check. Wedding? Check. Get everything and more with this app. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t already have an account, but if you don’t, you should.

The only thing that got me through my first international flight? Harry Potter. I’m serious. I got through most of the book before we landed. I had never been on a plane before and took my first flight from Atlanta, GA to Philadelphia, PA then to Dublin, Ireland. The little hop from ATL to PHL went quickly. That overnight flight to Dublin was a bit rough. I felt sick and queasy and couldn’t sleep at all. Thank Loki for audio books.

 

My Fitness Pal

vNoRMy7u4JXw34g43QAKiA4WLbvyd9OnemlYYOzD3guXxZjeh3zhLv0gFN5JCqRxHw=h310.jpg

I have a big Spoilers! post planned to talk about my weight loss journey so far. MFP has been a big part of it. I’ll go into more detail in my Spoiler! post but this app allows to track your calories, exercise, water intake, weight, and more! If you’re active or trying to lose weight or maintain your current weight, My Fitness Pal is the best app you can get for free.

 

Amazon Music

My fancy new car (it’s not really fancy, but it’s fancy to me!) has blue tooth and I love to use Amazon Music to play my homemade playlists in the car. There’s so many current and popular free albums. Panic! at the Disco’s Death of Bachelor is essentially on in my car at all times. I do switch it up sometimes with a band-specific station depending on my mood.

 

Google Docs

D7XTV_p7h0RBv86TfC0V1mXa4syDK2VWaZus7IM4ovvIg-KPjAsblRVc5ZssoOPDyT1l=h310.png

Goggle Docs is amazing. I use it to make grocery lists, keep up with blog post ideas, track my bills, make my monthly budget, make my wedding budget, and also track my wedding budget so far. I can download word documents and PDF’s straight to it and save them in the app.

MCFT: Summer Staple Pieces with Geeky Flare

irls

With summer finally in full swing here in St. Louis, I had a chance to break out my hot-weather wardrobe, and it feels so good! I wanted to share with you a few looks from my closet that are similar for you to try out yourself. Here’s my summer must-have’s of the year.

shorts.jpg

Printed shorts are my go-to for chilling out on the weekend. They’re very Kimmy Schmidt-esque. They’re cute, comfortable and can be worn with any solid colored top. This pair of flamingo shorts is made for summer concerts, beach trips and getting wine with Titus.

 

belle.jpg

Off-the-shoulder is very trendy right now; whether it’s a top or a dress, you’ll be staying cool with the “cold shoulder” detail. Check out my Belle inspired look with a plain pair of jeans and white top. Splash in some nice brown leather and yellow and you’re casually Disney-bounding! What’s great about this trend is you can find it in most retail stores in a variety of colors and sizes.

 

meg.jpg

This outfit and the one above it have something in common… A gorgeous bralette! They are my favorite thing this summer! Cool and pretty under my favorite shirts and so, so comfortable. Victoria’s Secret has them on sale right now! You can find them in other stores too, but I like mine a lightly lined and not so see-through. I took a page from Megara’s book and paired it with purple and brown.

 

maxi.jpg

Maxi skirts are now a big thing in my summer closet. They’re cool enough to get me through hot days but chic enough for every day at the office. Just add unicorns for a splash of magic! (I’ve been on a unicorn kick since I saw Nerdy Nummie’s Unicorn Cake.) The skirt I have is from Torrid and has a sexy slit up the side (to keep you cool of course!). It’s also fun to pair these up with colorful geeky tops and cute themed clutches.

 

What are your favorite summer staples this year? How do you pair them with your geeky accessories? Let me know in the comments!
