Baseball Chic: Game Day Trends

Tonight, the National League goes head-to-head against the American League in the MLB All-Star Game. The players chosen for this renowned game are voted by fans and each MLB team is represented by one member of the team.

I only know any of this because my boyfriend is obsessed with anything and everything baseball. We’ve been to countless Yankee’s games together and will also most likely be watching tonilght’s game simultaneously while I stream Sunday night’s Big Little Lies (aka compromise). Even if you have no idea how the game is played or what a grand slam is, you can still have a blast on game day. Who wouldn’t want to drink cold beer on a warm sunny day with some chicken fingers and french fries (pro tip: bring your own ranch dressing to Yankee Stadium because all they have is BBQ sauce)?!

You can still do sports and still look chic. Below are one, two three outfit ideas for your next ball game!

The MLB All-Star game starts at 7:30 PM on FOX.

Classic

You can never go wrong with a white tee and denim shorts. Warning: 75% of the other ladies at the stadium may or may not be wearing this same outfit. Elevate your look and stand out from the crowd with a designer baseball cap.

Lo-Fi Shrunken Tee, Madewell, $30

Internationalist Sneaker, Nike, $90

Buttoned Up

Buttons and micro-bags are having a major moment right now so what better way to create a look than by putting them both together? This linen midi dress is so perfect and the buttons only make it *that* much better. I love wearing this to work for a chic and easy look or for a relaxing Sunday brunch. The icing on the cake? I scored it at the Zara summer sale for just $40! It’s sold out now, unless you’re lucky and can snag one in store, but I’ve linked a very similar style (sans buttons) for $70 below.

I still don’t know how to feel about the micro-bag trend, but I just love this bag so much and haven’t used it in nearly 10 years (does that make it vintage?!). The only reason is because I’m so used to carrying everything around with me, and with this bag I can only tote the essentials. Luckily it’s roomy enough to hold my phone, wallet and keys, which is all I really need!

If you’re looking for a good Chanel slingback dupe, this pair from Zara is to die for. They’re not an exact replica and the vinyl makes them truly their own. They’re surprisingly comfy, and for $50 they’re a fraction of the price point and way more practical for walking around those city streets.

Top off the look with any delicate gold jewelry. I’m loving all the rings right now and this Starburst Signet from Mejuri is everything. It fits perfectly and always reminds me to keep my pinky up.

Petite Malle Monogram at Louis Vuitton, $5,200

Striped Tunic at Zara, $70

Starburst Signet at Mejuri, $59

Heeled Vinyl Slingbacks at Zara, $60

The Hiatus is Over

Took a much needed hiatus from social media the past few weeks, but now I’m officially back in business! I just got back from a relaxing trip to Florida, but now that I’m back in the city, I’m ready to hit the ground running. I’m ready for some huge changes the second half of 2018, so from here on out it’s werk, werk, werk, werk, werk. Stay tuned.

This bag from the Shayne Oliver x Longchamp collab is perfect for a mini getaway. There’s two zip compartments and it’s just big enough to hold all the essentials and then some. Most of this collection is sold out (it launched back in April with a special pop up in Soho to go with it), but I’ve linked my favorite travel picks still available below.

“Realness” Backpack, $750

“Hiatus” Travel Bag, $450

“Realness” Garment Bag, $695

“Realness” Expandable Travel Bag, $550

Red, White & Boo

Happy Independence Day! Today’s the day to pull out your best red, white and blue. And while you’ve probably been saving that *beloved* American flag bikini or your ‘MURICA graphic tee for this day, it’s time to retire all of the above. For good. Great news, you can still celebrate in style and you don’t even need to break the bank to do it.

I’ve worn this jumpsuit for many different occasions, but I’ve specifically repurposed it with white and red accessories for today. I’m obsessing over all-white everything for the summer, so my trusty Nico Giani tote (scored from the NET-A-PORTER sale) and my Gucci loafers were perfect for this outfit. I topped off the look with red fringe earrings from Topshop for the perfect pop of color. Side note: I’m only wearing one earring because I lost the other running after the subway last week. *oops*

This was definitely the most relaxing Fourth I’ve had in a very long time. I slept in (which was much needed) and only got dressed to hop over to the local diner for a super late breakfast. It’s so weird having this holiday in the middle of the week; not nearly enough time to get a way for a quick holiday jaunt. I’m going to continue taking it easy today and hopefully will be able to catch the annual Macy’s 4th of July fireworks from my new rooftop!

Spring Sprang Sprung

Mr. Larkin crop top | Levi’s wedgie hi-rise jean | Dolce Vita sandals | Michael Kors bag

Spring has finally sprung! Well, kinda. It’s back to feeling like winter, but I’m just thankful it was nice out enough to leave my winter jacket at home and break out a crop top and sandals for the day. It was one of those days where you wanted to spend all hours outside in the sun. Hoping that was just a little taste of what’s to come this summer!

Crop tops used to be an every day staple for me back home – I mean what else are you going to wear when it’s 90 degrees and humid every single day? But now that I’m living up north, my stomach hasn’t seen the light of day in months. I was excited to finally style a spring outfit – I’m itching to switch out the clothes in my closet for some lighter pieces. I especially love this top from Danish brand Mr. Larkin – its oversized sleeves are so fun and look flattering on anyone and it pairs perfect with your favorite pair of denim.

All the Denim

Trading in my winter coat for this fun denim jacket! Warm weather is in the forecast for this weekend, meaning everyone will be out to play in New York City. An oversized, distressed coat like this is the perfect transitional piece into spring. You can throw it over anything for a casual, laid back look. Wear this to brunch or a stroll in Central Park, and even into the night for that dinner date you’ve been looking forward to all week.

I’ve had my jacket for nearly two years now and it’s a definite staple in my wardrobe. It’s so versatile too – you can even customize yourself with pins and patches for your own unique look. I love to pair it with black denim, such as in this look, or top off a flowy spring dress and some sneakers for the perfect daytime fit.

Check out some of the options below to add to your closet this season!

Moto Crop Denim Jacket, $79 at Topshop

Alexander Wang Cropped Denim Jacket, $395 at Net-a-Porter

Easter Funday

Happy Easter! With 60 degree weather, it officially feels like spring today, although the forecast does say it’s going to snow tomorrow (why am I not surprised anymore?). Taking this opportunity to wear this fun dress from my Wear This edit this past week!

I’ve been on a mission to find a good wrap dress and this one is only $20 at Urban Outfitters right now! I love it because it’s so versatile – I can wear it with boots like in these photos or throw on some white sneakers for a more playful look. It also draws so many similarities to the Réalisation Par Alexandra dresses I’ve been coveting for so long and at a quarter of the price! This is definitely a style steal if I’ve ever seen one.

Side note: I took these photos outside of the Sézane L’Appartement store in Nolita, so if you’re in the city you should definitely stop by to check out this gorgeous storefront! Find it at 254 Elizabeth Street.

Layered State of Mind

Since it’s been so cold for ages, I’ve had to come up with new ways to switch up my daily outfits. Layering is the best option to stay warm and still look chic. I’m so sick of wearing the same thing every week, which usually consists of some kind of knit, a pair of pants and one of three jackets. I’ve also decided I’m not buying anymore winter gear this year unless it’s 1) a great sweater on sale or 2) a pair of snow boots on sale (only because next winter will be my third in the city and I have to accept the fact that I’m not a Floridian anymore). Lately, I’ve been obsessed with layering camis (even though this is actually a dress) over turtlenecks! It’s a great way to break out a summer staple a few seasons early. Shop the items below to get a similar look!

 

Knit Turtleneck, $25 at H&M

Vinyl Chain Belt, $38 at Topshop

Silk Camisole, $50 at J. Crew
