Eclectic Nerdiness

I have much to look forward to this weekend!!  First of all, the weather report is calling for SUN and 80's!  Also adding to the greatness of this weekend is a Saturday afternoon Wine Stroll through my local downtown.  $40 gets me lots of wine samples, food samples, and strolling fun!  Then on Sunday morning I'll be going to the Eastern Market Flower Day in Detroit.  I've heard it's pretty amazing, so I'm excited to see what all the fuss is about!  And to top off an already fun-packed weekend, on Sunday afternoon I'll be riding my bike to the Detroit Zoo with friends.  I hope to see the sloth! His name is Homer!

blazer: Forever 21 (similar) | chambray shirt: American Eagle (similar) | sweater vest: Target | skirt: Forever 21 (similar) | necklace: gift (similar) | shoes: Converse

Anyway, in clothing-news, I finally finally found a way to wear my camel colored blazer.  I've had this thing since last summer and always felt like a real estate agent when I tried to wear it.  So I ended up embracing the nerdiness and make it look intentionally-nerdy.  This is what I call my Nerdy Chic outfit.  Notice I wore my bigger framed glasses.

I would like to consider myself somewhat eclectic.  My fashion sense can be all over the map.  I don't like to stick to just one style.  I feel that this outfit brings out a lot of my personality in that it bridges different looks.  On-trend chambray shirt + nerdy sweater vest + feminine flowery skirt + all-American Converse = eclectic.

When it comes to style, are you more of a stick-to-one-style person or whatever-you're-feeling-like person?

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
