School Spirit Track Meet

Rest assured, just when the temperatures are on the rise, you’ll find yourself sitting on metal bleachers cheering on your miniature Olympian. What can you wear to be supportive and fun, all while not melting?
Here’s what I would choose-
The first outfit might not be the exact team colors, but it’s a light color to keep you cool. And a great hat comes in very handy!
The second outfit has some fun boho shorts and some fringe (and non-yawnworthy) sandals. Instead of full on gear, choose a team necklace and tote chock full of water and an umbrella for the sun.
I hope I gave you some summer spirit outfit ideas. I will be doing this again in the fall/winter. Don’t be afraid to break out of the athletic gear and into something with some personality!

School Spirit Baseball

Baseball season is upon us and that means lots of games out in the heat.  Here are a few ideas for those summer nights on the bleachers.
Keep in mind that showing your support for the team doesn’t always mean wearing a school shirt.  I love to wear just the team color in fun and different ways.
In the first outfit, I went with some tie dye and some lace trimmed shorts.  Because I have gone boho and I might never come back.
The second look is a cute little romper.  I know some of you moms are afraid of the romper. I’m not sure if you think this is going to look like you’re wearing something for your daughter or what.  But I assure you, life is short.  Wear what you want.  If you like the romper, wear the romper!  This time I packed my cute little backpack with fringe to tote the good camera!
For the last outfit, I threw on an easy tank top that you can find just about anywhere with a team hat, and some fun denim shorts.  Don’t you love those kicks?  I might need a pair…
Try to remember this guideline when you wear short short- the shorter the shorts=more coverage up top.  And when you wear longer Bermuda shorts, you can wear a tank.  It’s okay if you forget, I do all the time.
Keep rootin’ for that home team!

School Spirit Soccer

I have fallen off the style wagon.  I think it’s all the sporting events that I am attending lately.  I am in our team apparel more times a week than I care to mention.  That has me thinking, how can I make these outfits more exciting?  Because believe it or not, they don’t have to be boring.
Here are my summer sports outfit ideas.  Today we’ll start with soccer.
Being a soccer mom means being prepared for anything and that includes the weather.  I have been at games and positively frozen and I have been at games where it was 110 in the shade. You just never know.
Here are three ideas for cold/wet weather, crisp weather and warm weather.
For the cold/wet weather, I kept it simple.  You’ll be bundled up anyway.  Seek out a warm coat in your team’s colors that you can wear to multiple events.  And remember sometimes those soccer fields can be wet and muddy so you don’t want your feet to be the same!
In warmer weather, it’s hard to show your personality, so you need to rely on some fun accessories.  Trade out those boring old shorts for something in your team colors that are super comfy anyway!  And wear some pretty sandals with some fun sunnies.
And for crisp weather, when you need just a little something around your shoulders, why not try a kimono?  Toss out that <yawn> old sweatshirt and mix it up a little!  I love this look paired with boyfriend jeans and Converse.
See you on the soccer fields!
