Athleticwear-Hot Day

I’m not going to lie, every time I leave the house in exercise clothes, I feel like I’m leaving in my pajamas. I just feel like I’m half dressed!

This fall, I am helping coach my daughter’s soccer team and I am dressed far more often in athletic clothes than I normally am and I find myself out of my comfort zone. I know that for most of you, this IS your comfort zone!

It has me reevaluating what I have in my closet to coach in.

Here is one outfit that I’ve put together for coaching gear:

Transition to Fall- Off the Shoulder Top

The off the shoulder or cold shoulder look isn’t going anywhere. Which is good news for those of us with some in the closet. And these lace up flats are EVERYWHERE! Cute and functional.

I hope there was a look for you in this transitional collection!

Transition to Fall- Black Blazer

Transition to Fall- Black Blazer

Don’t worry about casual Friday, I’ve got a great outfit for you.  Wear your jeans and top them with a great black blazer.  And to make it a perfect fall outfit, top the blazer with a statement blanket scarf.  Don’t forget some sophisticated jewelry and a very “it” bag right now, the bucket bag.   Throw in a little fringe bootie just for sass.  Great for work!

Transition to Fall- Denim Shorts

Transition to Fall- Denim ShortsEveryone has a pair of denim shorts. Mine just happen to be this distressed. You can wear these long into fall, and here’s an example of how.

I pair them with a silk tank and topped with a long kimono. Don’t be afraid of the long hem! It doesn’t matter if it is longer than your shorts. Also, ditch the sandals to make this less summery and pair them with booties. Really…pair everything with booties! I love shorts and skirts with booties!

When in doubt, go with the bootie!

Transition to Fall- White Dress

It’s that time of year again, when no one has any idea what to wear!  Is it going to feel like August today or October?  No one knows!
I have a few tips for you to help with the transition from summer to fall.Transition to Fall- White Dress

Here I’ve taken a very summery dress (nothing gets more summery than a white dress) and paired it with a simple layer- a denim shirt.  You could do a jacket but I like the way the shirt is a little lighter and hopefully it’s also long and is close to the hemline of the dress.  This is also a perfect season for peeptoe booties (because when else do they make sense).  Wear them before the snow flies!  Shoot, I just said the “S” word, sorry!

One thing I can’t live without lately is my baseball cap.  It sure comes in handy for second (or third!) day hair.  I like this outfit with a simple little saddle bag.  Something that reminds me a little of my very first purse in junior high….when it wasn’t cool yet to have a purse.  Does anyone else remember that?

Hopefully this is an outfit you can wear if it’s 80 or 60!

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!
