I’ve mentioned time and time again, that matinee starts are always a little more laid back in the clothing department. However, matinees usually face-off at 1 pm, not 3 pm as was the case today for Boston vs. Ottawa.

In terms of being game ready, I debated and debated between pants and a skirt. I even picked a top option that would go with either, but in the end the pants and the desire to be comfortable ultimately won out.

I would also like to point out that I am a HUGE advocate for thrift store shopping, I get a weird thrill from finding awesome pieces that cost virtually nothing… I made an unexpected thrift store shop earlier in the week and found 8 awesome articles of clothing and only left a $12 dent in my wallet. What’s the appeal? It isn’t even the money saved (although that’s a huge bonus), it’s finding eclectic pieces, designer duds, things that still have the tag on them, and getting to pair them with things you have at home. I love the idea of owning a shirt, sweater, blouse, skirt, etc that no one else might own because it’s not the “in” sweater that’s being sold at every store right now. I will point out however, that I can’t get past the idea of buying shoes at a thrift store, because, I just can’t. Walking a mile in someone else’s shoes is a great theory, actually doing it – gross.

Winter press level fashionBreakdown: 

Grey pants, Forever 21, $16.80
Black tank, Forever 21, $1.80 – I’ve mentioned this before, I love these and I own them in multiple colors
Floral wrap cardigan, Thrift Store, $2 – It still had it’s original Urban Outfitters tags on it, what.a.steal!
Black wedge ankle boots, Aldo, clearance, $19.99

Media Tip: Pack headphones in your bag and never take them out, you never know when you might need to throw them on to watch something on press level. While possibly enjoyable – annoying your fellow colleagues with a loud YouTube video is not appreciated, I assure you.



Winter was hooked on hockey by age 6, when she first witnessed a bench clearing brawl between the Boston Bruins and the Ottawa Senators. Growing from hockey fan to hockey player, Winter followed her passions by founding The Pink Puck. While she also loves fashion and the outdoors, hockey will always be her center ice.
