Happy Hockey Season, all you pretty Pink Puck readers!

After the absolute longest offseason ever for us NorCal kids due to watching the Sharks totally tank–see what I did there–it’s finally time for training camps and preseason play.

Which also means: Busting out my arsenal of stockings!

Unfortunately, the weather outside and the conditions at the rink do not coincide; just because hockey season has started does not mean that the California heat is going to quietly bow out for the late-summer-early-fall months.

That means layering, and lots of it.

Those of you who read my game-day log last season know that I’m a huge fan of layers and proportions and what-not. So then, you would also figure that this seemingly conservative ensemble is not so “librarian” as it looks. I took a sweet, black, high-waisted skater skirt and black-and-white checked halter top from Brandy Melville, which is incredibly summer-y and not at all work appropriate. However, BM’s separated are soft and light-weight and perfect for layering. So for the first day of camp, I paired the ensemble with basic black tights, a long black button-up cardigan and my ballet flats. I was covered up enough to be professional at work–well, and warm, that’s kind of important–plus I was able to shed a few layers afterwards before heading over to the bar for a glass of wine!image


We’ve just hit the tip of the iceberg, fellow fashionistas. There is a long season of hockey and haute outfits ahead of us. We’ll chat again as preseason play gets underway.

Until the next puck drops,
