Outfit: Spring is for Polka Dots | BEDA Day 18

modcloth outfit-2

Dress: Modcloth* | Belt: Modcloth (old) | Jacket: LOFT | Shoes: Aerosoles*

Folks, spring is here at last. I’ve worn dresses without tights for the last two days and I haven’t frozen to death. This is a true accomplishment. I’m really enjoying this brief moment of actually being comfortable outside. I have just a few weeks before I start sweating for 4 months, and I plan on taking full advantage of them.

These shots were taken on the balcony of the AirBnB I stayed in this weekend in Washington, DC. I love a good balcony, I love some exposed brick, and I LOVE this outfit. This dress is super fun and comfy and I plan on wearing it all the time this summer. This jacket is also a wonderful replacement for my beloved Topshop denim jacket that recently sprouted a hole in the elbow. We’re going to be inseparable until it gets too hot to warrant a jacket again.

This dress is one of my favorite new finds from Modcloth. If you haven’t shopped Modcloth’s huge array of vintage-inspired threads yet, you can now get 20% off your first order of $100. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Check out their amazing selection of spring styles here*.

The “Me Time” Tag

What do you do to get out of a video-making rut? Film a tag video, of course! I do love a good tag video. They give me structure when I’m at a loss for ideas and want to make a more conversational video. Plus, I just like to see how everyone responds to the questions. It’s like hanging out with your girlfriends (who don’t always necessarily know who you are) (is that weird?).

Anyway, check out the video above to see how I spend my “Me Time.” I woke up early yesterday to record this, so the fact that it exists on the internet is kind of a miracle. I’ve realized that I’m somehow more productive in the morning, so maybe this whole “waking up early” thing will become a regular part of my routine. Not holding my breath, though.

Sunday Style | Nerdcon: Stories

OOTD

Dress: Modcloth | Jacket: Topshop (similar) | Boots: Steve Madden | Hat: Target

Nerdcon: Stories marks my sixth convention since 2011 and I finally feel like I’m doing something right with my con style. I always want to look ~cool~ and ~hip~ at these gatherings, but comfort ultimately trumps everything. If I can’t walk around a convention center for 10+ hours in a certain outfit, it’s not worth it. The look I sported on day two of Nerdcon: Stories was pretty much perfect for attending all the awesome panels and exploring Minneapolis later in the day.

This dress is super comfy and stretchy, and I never had to worry about it being too short. Since it was a little cool outside (and in the convention center), I threw on some tights and my trusty Topshop denim jacket for a little extra coverage. My Steve Madden boots aren’t necessarily the most supportive shoes I own, but they helped me power through three days of long skyway walks. Of course, being in Minneapolis, we had to stop at the flagship Target for a bit of cheeky shopping. This floppy hat was probably my best purchase of the trip.

I had a great time hanging out with all my favorite people this weekend, telling stories and hearing from some amazing creators. I’m now back in New York, feeling super inspired (albeit super tired).
