The NFL is back, and once again we are gearing up for some amazing athletic showdowns. Not only that, we cannot dismiss that these players have become their own fashion runway as they walk into the stadium on game day. The NBA might snag most of the spotlight, but this league is quickly boasting its own crop of trendsetters. Players are showcasing their off-field style, dressed up in sleek suits for pre-game arrivals and trips to the post-game podium. Not only are they becoming the men to watch, they are also snagging covers and advertising campaigns for the entertainers they are. I will be keeping up with their fashion this season on the blog. Not to mention, this was one of my favorite looks last season, nothing beats a fun Steelers bomber jacket mixed with boots and a fun skirt for fall!
Here is the list of my fashion MVP’s at the beginning of the NFL season. Cheers to a fun and trendy season, and I look forward to seeing who rises up in my fashion ranks!
Well it is that time of the year when the weather starts to heat up, but that doesn’t mean you have to step off your athleisure game. Yes, I love the layering of it all during the fall and winter months, but you can still do it right by adding lighter pieces or a fun dress that screams game day fun! What I love about both of these looks is that they are very different One being more preppy, and the other a bit more edgy. Both ways, I have you covered for the next month!
I love the vibe of this “cool girl” black and white look. One of my favorite new lines is Ivy Park from Beyonce. Her pieces are just super on trend and have a total swag about them. I just picked up this hat from Nordstrom which I will rock all summer. I live in jean shorts in the summer, and picking up a pair that are worn in like these from Topshop go with everything. Pair them over a bathing suit, or dress them up with some heels and a blouse.
I am totally obsessed with the silhouette of this bomber jacket from adidas. It is great to throw over almost anything if the weather gets a little chilly in the evenings. Can we say YES PLEASE, to these kickin adidas sneakers? They are so sleek looking that I can literally wear them with anything, but they for sure completed this look.
Okay, so sometimes I love to go with the more preppy athleisure vibes. Thanks to A.L.C, one of my favorite lines, this cute dress does the trick. Not only is it super comfortable, the stripes are perfect for the summer and July 4th! You can wear this into the fall with cool boots and a denim jacket.
I decided to mix up my handbag and wear a cute and sporty fanny pack from Nordstrom with it. This one from Amici is under $50, which I call a major steal. If you are a bit fearful of trying this trend, grab a cool nylon tote instead. I also paired it with a cool watch from Cluse, which is both sporty and cool at the same time.
It is all about the details on this dress. One of the things that sets it apart from other striped dresses, is the design detail. The cool cutout details in the arms make it a bit more designer looking and trendy at the same time. Once again, pair it with a cool watch and you are all set.
Hello Nike Air Huarache’s for the win. I have these in three colors now, because they are so cute, comfy, and universal. I run in these, do classes, and wear them around town. I love them with this dress for a sporty look, and I will also pair them with my workout gear too.
From old skool kicks to fun new finds, this past month I found myself rocking a little of both. This past year, I partnered up with Happy Socks, and let me tell you they will make your feet dance. They have such a fun assortment of socks and underwear that are not only cozy but make a statement when you wear them. I love the retro polka dot feel of the spring collection below, and so I found it fitting to break out my favorite checkered Vans for summer. This skate shoe has been around forever, and is still one of my favorites.
Speaking of throwing it back, the Vans Sk8 hi-low sneaker in all white is also a favorite of mine. They are affordable, cool, and definitely make my look a little more cool. Adidas has also made such a fun comeback with their “originals” this past year, and I haven’t met a color I didn’t like! This taupe gazelle is off the chart. It is the absolute perfect color to go with everything in my wardrobe.
When it comes to new snekaers that have been dropped, the technology continues to grow for sneaker companies, and they are making it harder and harder to chose a pair! I found this new adidas Tubular in pink. They are blending the past with the future by redefining sportswear for the street, taking inspiration from an iconic 93 runner. The Nike City Knife 3 Flyknit Sneaker, actually is a foldable and packable sneaker, and let me tell you for traveling it speaks to me. The colors are so fly as well, I feel like super girl when I wear these.
A little bit of fun design plus all white sneakers were just another added bonus. These new Nike Air Huarache SE remind me of wearing denim on denim. They are trendy and fun, and litearally are also so comfortable. For me, when it comes to brunching, I love mixing a fun long skirt with a preppy pair of white sneakers. These Tretorn for J.Crew do just that. I also will pair them with all my fun Fourth of July looks coming up.

Well, it is that time of the year and Major League Baseball is back in full swing. Nothing beats going to a great ball game during the day in the summer. One of my favorite things to do, is have a hot dog, and enjoy the weather. Being born in Pittsburgh, the Pirates will always be my favorite team, but don’t get me wrong, I will go to any ball park and enjoy some baseball.
Besides baseball season, summer time calls for brunching in the city almost every weekend. I can never pass up a good mimosa and eggs benedict. From a baseball game to brunch, I have you covered this month!
When it comes to a game outside, I love to make sure that I have layers. This denim skirt is perfect for the weather and a simple tee is great with a jacket that you can layer around your waist. Always have a light jacket, as usually the weather will change or the sun goes down and the shade can make it cool.
Comfy sneaks and a good hat are also a must. You will be walking all day, so make sure you have a good pair, and these checker Vans are so cool girl. Also, this hat from Topshop is not only cute for the game, but it has my Pirates logo so I am totally representing my team. The Rails is making the best coats. Not only is this perfect all summer long, but the print is fun and on trend.
Thanks to J.Crew this skirt and denim combo is one of my favorites. I am the biggest fan of a maxi skirt, and I love to pair it with a simple chambray top to keep it low key. This whole look will be on rotation, as you can definitely make this skirt a go to for a cocktail event as well.
Straw hats make me smile in the summer! You can wear them to brunch, to the beach, travel with them, a totally must have piece. This one from Nordstrom is also under $50!
Sneakers with skirts are the new uniform, and these all white Tretorn’s are super cute and go with everything. I also love this cute clutch and bangle set from J.Crew as well. They are very summery and easy to throw with any look from day to night!
One of my favorite combinations living in Cali was pairing a great sweater with some cool jean shorts. The weather always tends to drop in the evening, and so keeping lightweight sweaters out year round is a must. Here in NYC for the next couple of months I will be traveling to places where temps drop in the evening. So this is a look I will keep here on the East Coast as well. I tend to live in my denim shorts all summer, and so picking up a few new sweaters, like this one from Vince is perfect.
Usually in the summer time, I throw on a cool pair of kicks with my jean shorts. These Nike AirForce 1 tan and black mid tops are awesome. They will go with everything in my wardrobe, and they are super comfortable as well. I paired them with my favorite sporty adidas watch and some simple H&M bangles.
It is all about the belt this summer. Whether you go for a western style, like this fun one from Topshop, or a simple black belt, make sure to add it to your list. Just this small accessory added to jean shorts and a sweater can make all the difference! Step out of your comfort zone, and find one that has a cool pattern.
