Nerd Alert!

Greetings from Michigan!

I'm in rare form today, which may or may not be due to the fact that I just gulped down an entire venti iced green tea, so be forewarned and buckle up kiddos.

I'm becoming obsessed with Hipstamatic.

Since I am sure most of you are in awe of my coolness most days, (<------joke) it will probably come as a big surprise to find out that I am, in fact, a HUGE nerd.  (Probably not too much of a shocker huh?)  I am so much of a literature geek that I buy (and wear) lit-inspired clothing.  Nerd Alert! Nerd Alert!  However I think it is totally possible to merge geek with chic.  Instead of simply looking like you've got a wedgie in your future, you can look like that cool artsy girl who wears Jane Austen t-shirts.  Or in my case the thirty year old mama clinging to her youth by wearing shorty shorts.  (Semantics.)

I tried to do an impromptu photo shoot before therapy this morning, but a certain creeper kept sneaking into my photos with his bowl of goldfish crackers.  My attempt at even remotely professional looking pictures = epic fail.

F21 sunglasses, bracelets, and scarf; Micheal Kors watch,
vintage ring, American Eagle sandals,
Brookish t-shirt, Old Navy shorts

Here are some closeups.  Let's call this look Eclectic Geek Chic.  Or perhaps Novel Style... eh? eh?  ;)  Hey, don't say I didn't warn you.

Text:  Mr. Darcy's proposal to Elizabeth Bennet in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice:
"In vain have I struggled. It will not do. 
You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."
How could you not be in love with this guy?!?!
Extreme Close Up

I am OBSESSED with this t-shirt and this etsy shop!  What do you think?  Geek chic?  Or just plain ol' geek?

That's all for today folks!



PS- The next geek purchase on my horizon:

Wrap Up With A Good Book Scarf: Pride and Prejudice
Love it!!!


  1. LOVE that scarf. I've been eyeing it forever - it's so lovely. (Also dig the shirt, too!)

    1. Ooooh thanks for sharing that blog! Sooooo up my alley :) All is well at word camp - aside from the wifi not working at my apartment... its like the olden days - I have to plug in! (and of course the only connection is in the baby's room so online time is limited and my poor cell's data usage is through the roof!

  2. Love the scarf!
