The NBA is back, and we are definitely seeing a big resurgence in vintage throwback gear. I love this statement because it is fun, and can really be more fashionable a cool. I love wearing team gear to a game, so it is so much more exciting to find pieces that have a unique appeal to them, and work an outfit around that.
This NBA All-Star tee from Mitchell and Ness clearly has me smiling. This brand has a ton of fun retro looking gear that you can find. I attend so many NBA games, that I love to find non team specific gear for some of them. With that being said, the next step is to style it out so it feels more cool girl.
I am completely obsessed with this rocker jacket from Frame Denim. It is oversized and works with almost anything in my wardrobe. Paring it with the tee and my worn in denim makes the look much more on trend and fashionable.
I love a good sneaker for the game, so I just decided to go with my adidas flashback kicks that rounded out the look. One rule of thumb is to find cool sneaker that is in your team colors. That is the perfect way to represent as well!

The NFL is already in week five, can you believe it? The Steelers are 3-1 going into tomorrow’s game against the Jaguars. This weekend I am doing a fun homegating party, and having everyone wear their favorite team gear. For me, it is all about working it into some fun and trendy sportswear pieces. This t-shirt is from 47brand, one of my favorite lines for sports gear.
I am totally into all kinds of ripped jeans this season, and I finally took the time to try on a pair from Khloe Kardashian’s line Good American available at Nordstrom. They are so comfortable, and are the perfect pair because not only are they super on trend, I can jump up and down and cheer in them.
So many fun lines are making a comeback, and this jacket from Kappa is super cool and retro. I love that it can double up with my leather pants and boots this fall. Stay tuned for more fun throwback lines coming your way!
Of course, I have some new kicks that have just arrived to my door, and the colorway is light and easy. This adidas NMD XR1 kick has a sock-like primeknit making it feel like you are walking and running on air. They are perfect for a basic day, as well as a full long run.
I have been on the hunt for a fun new line of stadium approved bags, and this line from Sheer Gear is one of the cutest I have seen so far. Their bags are all super trendy, and my favorite part is the cute Steeler color pomp poms that are on the side of the bag. I mean how cute is that? I feel like I can totally keep my sense of style with their bags!
I can’t believe that the MLB baseball playoffs are right around the corner. It is officially fall, and where did the time go? The Los Angeles Dodgers are in first place in the National League, and this city is excited! When I say they are good, guys they are great. I don’t follow baseball as closely as I do the NBA and NFL, but I usually get really excited when playoffs roll around. Being in Cali for as long as I have, I would say that my team on the west coast is obviously the Dodgers, so I will for sure be getting to a playoff game for a hot dog and beer!
One of the things I love about a good old baseball hat like this one from 47 Brand is that it looks worn in and has a vintage feel to it. When I am running errands around town after a workout, it is so easy to throw on a cap repping your team. I have become obsessed with anything that is oversized this season, and if you are looking for a trendy piece, make sure to find a cool sweatshirt like this one from Rag and Bone I literally throw it on with my yoga leggings and I am stylish for the day. Not to mention, these days I like to carry a small bag that fits my phone and a credit card. How cute is this one from Nordstrom? It is under $50.00 and totally adds some more style to the look.
If you haven’t jumped on the legging bandwagon, then it is time to do so. Zella from Nordstrom fits me really well, and they are not too expensive and are on trend. These are such a great color, and the moto style makes it easy to wear them all day without feeling boring.
I did encounter a little bit of a shoe problem when it came to this look. I just picked up these adidas kicks, and they really go the distance when it comes to running on the treadmill and doing errands around town. They look just as great with a pair of simple denim jeans and a t-shirt.
I also kind of want to kick up my leggings in these fun Nike kicks. The Nike logo is the cutest baby pink which makes them also so fun. There is a bit of an added girly touch to them, which obviously makes the high top unique!
Okay okay, you have me here, I did not attend a college with a football team. Can you believe it? Yes, I missed out on tailgates, painting my face, and running wild as a college kid does during games, but I have learned to love college game day just as much as the rest.
When people ask me if I have grown to love a team, I would have to say that I have enjoyed watching how bowl games and now a national championship have shaped college football in the last ten years. Yes, sometimes I yearn to have gone to a school such as Bama, where you can just see people breathing the spirit of it all, but I certainly did get a sense of that growing up with college hoops. And yes people, I know it is very different. So if one may ask, I would have to say I am taking my dad’s alma mater the University of Pittsburgh. I have been lucky to see a few of their games, as well as attend UCLA and USC football games. What I love the best is being in Los Angeles, and seeing the total fandom of both of these teams.
With that being said, my goal this year is to attend a couple more big games, and finally attend a bowl game. I will keep you posted, and until I really decide on a team, I will be the ultimate fan in fun pieces like this Tommy Hilfiger football jersey. I mean I might as well bring some fun fashion into this right? Check out Urban Outfitters for fun gear! Anyhow, whomever your college football team may be, good luck and see you all tailgating across the country!
We all know that summer can be tough when it comes to keeping up with our workouts. I mean lets be real, it is all about the burgers and beers. For me, when I come across a fun workout look, that always motivates me to get it back together again. One of my favorite lines for running and yoga is Onzie. Their pieces are so fun and trend forward that they make me want to get myself in gear again.
What I love about this set is the back is way cool. It makes for a subtle hint of fashion in it, and the trendy leggings are so fun. I will throw on a sweatshirt and cool kicks with them in the fall. I also love that these pants are hight-waisted making them easy for yoga.
Speaking of kicks, these New Balance for J.Crew are making my month. I love the mix of blue and pink. They are so comfy and have the perfect colorful mix that you don’t see that often. I will wear these for working out and for casual days around town.
I picked up the cutest pair of aviators for $12.00 at Nordstrom. I tend to walk a lot outdoors as well, so if I do not have on my hat, then a cute pair of shades works well.
