Sometimes an all striped dress can be a bit overwhelming.  I used to hate horizontal stripes as it does the one thing we all never want, make us look wider. But I have recently come around to them a bit more in the past year or so. Naturally with this loose fitting T-shirt striped dress, I did not want the stripes to over power my look.  By adding solid pieces, it helped tone down the bold pattern while still giving the stripe pattern center stage.  Anyone else like to wear a sporty look to run errands on beautiful days? I know what your are thinking, your yoga pants do just fine for a sporty look.  Okay, maybe you can give your yoga pants a break and still be comfortable and sporty with a simple Tshirt dress, low sneaker and fun accessories. Try it out! Maybe you will go back to the days of Sporty Spice. Anyone else a Spice Girl fan in the 90’s? I sure was! Spice up yo life!

And who doesn’t love a nice jumping picture? Truth is I was overjoyed at the beautiful weather we have had this past week I was celebrating. Okay and maybe jumping for joy that we leave on vacation in less than two weeks! Score! Those poor pale legs of mine need some time in the sun. Oh, pardon my pedometer, I have been wearing it to track my daily steps and it slipped its way into this photo shoot. 🙂

Casual Game Day Look

Casual Game Day Look

Today was a fairly chilly day here in Indianapolis. With the chill, it is necessary to layer on your pieces for a game day look. A game day look can work for many different sporting events. Throw some of your basic wardrobe pieces together with your sports gear to support your team and you are ready to hit the crowd. I chose my favorite team, the Yankees. I know. I know. The season is over for the Yanks, but I will wear my gear no matter what time of year. My love for the Yankees started over ten years ago and mainly because of Derek Jeter. 🙂 I love throwing on my baseball hat to support my team. Recently, Derek Jeter did retired, but I will continue to support my Yanks! They also have my heart because New York City is also one of my favorite cities.

Casual Game Day LookI finally got around to getting my mane colored. I did go a little darker with my hair, can you even tell? I sure can! Casual Game Day Look

Don’t forget to layer if you will be outside tailgating! It is easy to layer on to stay warm outdoors and once inside you can remove layers to be more comfortable during the game.

I am not sure what provoked me to look over the fencing, but as soon as I saw this photo it reminded me of a favorite childhood movie, The Sandlot. Oh how that classic movie always made its way into the VCR at home for family movie night. I grew up with just an older brother, so my childhood days tended to have more tomboy-ish ways then my latter years. A little kick ball in the court, anyone?
