OOTN: Red Sox Challenge

As most of you know, I’ve lived in the Boston area all of my life. With that being said, it can be assumed that one of my favorite past times is definitely watching and attending Boston sports games!

And, if you’ve stuck around long enough, I’m positive you’ve seen at least one past blog posts where I rant and rave about attending a wicked awesome sports game in the area.

Contrary to popular belief, not every girl who likes sports dresses like a tom boy. I consider myself to have a great sense of fashion, so of course when I discovered, I had to challenge myself to create a look using one of their pieces. I just couldn't resist!

Not from the Boston area? 
Do you root for a different home team? 
Is your favorite sport hockey, lacrosse, or NASCAR? is one of the top 50 internet retail companies in the game right now. They are home to thousands of officially licensed sports items. They offer flat rate shipping for $4.99 as well as easy returns 365 days of the year! You honestly can't beat that. With a massive selection of caps, jerseys and other merch, there's something for everyone!

Seeing as it’s baseball season, of course I chose to 
re-create a look based around the Boston Red Sox.

Naturally, I went with a very classic fitted Red Sox cap.

With over 200 Red Sox Hats to choose from, 
there's something for everyone!

If I had all the money in the world, I would watch every sporting event live from stadium seats, but unfortunately being a broke Grad student and a teacher, it’s highly unlikely. The next best thing however, is getting together with a bunch of my friends, taking the T into Fenway and watching the game at one of the crowded sports bars.

Wait! Can you really wear a hat in those bars?

Actually, those bars typically have no dress code so guys and gals are welcome to wear their wicked sweet Sox hats while cheering on the best team in MLB.

Okay, so I can wear a hat, but what if I don’t want to wear
my wicked expensive $120 jersey to the bar?
I don't want sloppy bar folk to spill anything on it!

AND, what if I want to hop back on the T after the game and take it to 
Faneuil Hall and finish off the night dancing?

There's got to be a catch...

Nope! No catch. It's quite simple actually.
With some style help from, I’ve come up with the perfect ensemble for a night out in Boston where you can watch the game, have a few brewskies and end the night dancing.

To Purchase:   | Hat |  Top  |  Bottoms  |  Shoes  |  Bag  |  Bracelets  |

One of the greatest things about this outfit is that it 
incorporates pieces that I already own. 

By using solid colors from the Red Sox cap, (red and navy blue) not only am I dressed appropriately to represent my home team at the bar, but I'm also ready to hit the club after.
Nothing is worse that feeling under-dressed or over-dressed when you're out on the town.
What rocks about this whole look is that regardless of where the night takes you, you will
look and feel comfortable.

Something else I love about these pieces is that the colors can be flip-flopped. Everything that is red can be navy blue and likewise, everything that is navy blue can be red.
The color scheme can also be substituted depending on the sport (Yellow & Black for the Bruins) or for the city (Yellow & Purple for LA).

One of the reasons why I love fashion so much is that it's completely your own.
Not into crop tops? 
A little chilly outside? 
What if you're out with the boyfriend and his parents watching the game?
The crop top that I've included can be easily put back into the closet. Instead, try a cute navy camisole, long sleeve pull over, or even denim button up.

What if you aren't going to a bar? 
What if you stood on your feet all day at work? 
Depending on your mood and where you will end up watching the sox game,
the black heels can also be exchanged for black flats, sneakers or sandals, too.

How would you recreate this look?
