I can’t believe that the NBA Finals are almost here. Currently I have been on lockdown watching the Conference championship games. Both the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to advance past the San Antonio Spurs and Boston Celtics. The first team my father coached in the NBA was the Seattle Supersonics, and I will always have a love for them. Since they moved to Oklahoma City and were renamed, the team gear has a vintage feel to it.
It is easy to continue to represent, even if your team isn’t in the playoffs. For me, it is simply to find fun retro throwback t-shirts and gear that remind me of the players and teams from the past. Right now, I am totally reminiscing about the Sonic days, as it was our families first NBA finals experience. Not only that, the green and yellow are so much fun together and totally pop while wearing it out.
For me, since the shirt is a throwback, I simply paired it with my favorite J.Crew denim jeans. This distressed pair are skinny to the ankle with a bit of high waist, so they are easy to tuck a t-shirt in to give you more shape.
One of my favorite players is Gary Payton, and that made this shirt more fun. I love wearing the numbers of players that I truly love right on my sleeve. Not only that, I mean could this J.Crew handbag not be any more cool? I will continue to wear this all summer with my fun dresses.
These New Balance kicks for J.Crew have been on rotation for me as well. I love the clean white look, with just the small bit of metallic in them. Cheers to the NBA, and check out some of my other favorite throwback pieces below!
