We’ve Got Spirit, Yes We Do…

Are you a fashionable female with a penchant for football?  Well good luck trying not to look like one of the boys on game day!  For the gal who likes to show her team spirit without wearing a linebacker’s official jersey there aren’t a lot of stylish options on the market.  When I saw this NFL ad in last month’s Vogue, I was instantly inspired…

Why not mix it up a bit?  There’s no need to don your boyfriend’s jeans and sneakers just because you like to play armchair quarterback on the weekends.  Capitalize on your femininity and win the trophy for best looking lady at the tailgate party!  Take a couple official team pieces, like a fitted tee or hoodie and a ball cap, throw some silk drawstring pants and high heels into the formation, layer on a few pieces of bling-bling, and you’ve got a winning play!FSU Ensemble

Denim Shorts With Oxfords

I was trying to think of fun ways to jazz up my vintage (okay, circa 2003) cut-off denim shorts, which I tend to throw on as soon as I roll out of bed.  Enter the metallic oxfords.  I can totally dig this look because it’s comfy without sacrificing style.  Amp up the fem-factor and balance the edgy shoes with a pretty floral top.  Grab your fedora and trendy shades and you’re out the door…

“I Want It NOW!” -Veruca Salt

Here are a few picks from my list of absolutely required, can’t live without, gotta have it, need it to survive, “I Want It Now” necessities to enhance my wardrobe:

#1  Cream Oxford Flats
Oxford Flat
I can wear these with everything!  Dresses, shorts, pants? YES!  I love the neutral color and how the soft woven texture adds a feminine touch to this otherwise masculine style.

#2  Straw Fedora Hat
Gap Straw Fidora Hat
I am definitely a hat person, but you don’t have to be a connoisseur to enjoy this trend.  Another piece that would go with just about every Spring ensemble in my closet.  Gotta have it!

#3  Pinky Nude Nails
OPI Nail Polish
Coney Island Cotton Candy is my favorite OPI color.  My nail tech can attest to this… I’ve been wearing it for years!  Love it!

#4  Single Shoulder Swimsuit
DVF Swimsuit
The single shoulder trend was all over the runways this season and swimsuits were no exception.  I love this one by Diane Von Furstenberg because it’s a great twist on the classic one-piece swimsuit.

Like Veruca Salt, my appetite (for fashion) is insatiable!  I have many, many more must haves on my list for this season… which I will share in future blogs of course.  Are there any pieces you’ve been dreaming about lately?
