A Colorful Look @ The Instagram Page: Nerd In Pearls

July 21, 2015

Nerd In Pearls: Megan

Not all girls who wear Lilly sit at the country club checking out the ball boy while sipping pink fizzy drinks--not that there is anything wrong with that, but it is a preppy stereotype none-the-less.

No, some Lilly girls like Stars Wars, crunching numbers, cartoons, and other {stereotypical nerdy things}! That is how this TYS feature came-to-be with an instant Insta friend, Megan Stahl A.K.A @NerdinPearls.

If you are one her +4851 Instagram followers you already know Megan has a thing for posting flashy white toothy pics sporting popular nautically preppy brands such as Lilly Pulitzer, Jadelynn Brooke, & Vineyard Vines {to name a few}. While the colorful post are expected each day they have their own unique twist that are all very Megan.

In some posts, you willl notice a Star Wars mug next to a popp'in Lilly print or a Pokemon knit ball near a pair of nautical shorts. Megan's unique preppy  look is as refreshing as nursing a mint julep at the French Open.   

So, aside from her colorful wardrobe--what's Nerd In Pearls' social media success...inspiration...? Well, put on your spectacles to investigate further.

TYS: Tell me a little bit about your personal style?
Megan: I like things that are typically considered nerdy, like Star Wars, video games, and anime...but I also enjoy girly fashion, so an IG name combining both is how I came to nerdinpearls!

TYS: Do you work at Lilly or are you just a huge fan?
Megan: My style is casual preppy. I like bright colors but also being comfortable and relaxed. No button ups for me!

TYS: What did you think about the whole (shopping experience/products) Lilly for Target?
Megan: I was extremely disappointed by the whole experience, and I was able to get many items (a plus to no one knowing about the brand here in Oregon). I really thought Lilly and Target should have been more transparent about the amount of product available and their online launch was a disaster, to say the least. The products were super cute and better made than expected though! 

Gotta Catch'em All!

TYS: Do you blog or do anything as a creative outlet? If so what?
Megan: I currently do not have a blog, although I have been considering it!

TYS: What are your career aspirations?
Megan: My dream job would be to work in film production or be a creative director in the marketing field

TYS:  What is your ultimate go-to nautical -preppy lifestyle brand? Why?
Megan: Lilly Pulitzer is my go-to preppy brand! I love Lilly's story of how the brand got started, plus everything is cute and colorful!



TYS: Why do you think you have such a massive IG following?
Megan: I would say focusing on building and being a part of a community is why I have so many followers. My account never was and never will be about number of followers--it's always been about sharing a colorful part of my life and celebrating other ladies that do too! 

TYS: What advice do you give to people looking to have the same social media success?
Megan: If someone is looking to find success on IG I would recommend taking time to craft unique posts that really represent you and to make sure you interact with the community around you! 


Thanks Megan. Look forward to more colorful posts from you.
