After the power outage and hits galore in Game 1,  I could not have been more stoked to head back to the rink for the second playoff tilt between the Sharks and Kings. Add to that the festive feel from Easter (or whatever you chose to celebrate on April 20th), there was some seriously amped up post-season hockey vibe at the Tank even before the crowd was let inside the front doors.

Big game. Big action. Big energy.

And of course–drumroll please–that calls for a big time outfit:


I’m the world’s biggest contrarian when it comes to the clothing that I wear outside of my house.

So, since everyone and their brother’s dog insists on sporting pastels on Easter, I chose the polar opposite.

This black lace number was an under-$30 steal: it fits great, washes easily, and… well, it’s awesome. I always feel good wearing it.

Yes, it borders on being more of a date night frock. However when paired with opaque black tights and simple ballet flats, this dress turns into a work-friendly ensemble.

I finished this Sunday look off with gold midi rings–yes, that is my teal Sharks half-moon manicure!–that I’ve picked up from various little boutique stores over some time.


Until the next puck drops,
