Happy howl-o-ween! Over in Glendale, we’re celebrating Halloween early. I’m just going to use this as my excuse for wearing dark colors (and lipstick). I’ve got a dark vibe going on, but then again, when don’t I?!
It’s been a looooong week in between games. The ‘Yotes were on their first road trip of the season (they lost in shootout to Nashville, and lost 2-0 in Minnesota) this week, and for some reason, in between last weeks Saturday game, and this week has felt like an eternity… Maybe it’s because I’ve been thinking about what I was going to wear to the game since before last weeks game against St. Louis even started.
I must say, an impromptu shopping trip before the game lead to a whole different outfit than I was intending on. I picked up this skirt at Nordstrom Rack, and I’m in love with it. It’s comfy, and still professional with the length and style.
My hunt for a regular black blazer was inconclusive up until 15 minutes until I got to the arena (thank goodness there is an H&M across the street!). That being said, I finally have an outfit staple that I have wanted for so long, and the best part was that it was only $35.00!
Blazers and pencil skirts are such a professional look…If you’ve read any of my other stuff, then you know how much I love being professional.
I went with the dreaded black heels for this outfit, and they are already giving me a better experience than the first. They were essential to a polished and nice look. Sometimes, you have to make sacrifices to look cute. In my opinion, it’s not even a sacrifice because I would much rather look cute than wear flats (living vicariously through Victoria Beckham, always).
Press Level Tip: Make sure you have a bag big enough to fit all of your needs, but isn’t too heavy or bulky. First of all, you have to carry it around to the locker room, after, and you need to be able to hold it. Second of all, there are a lot of people huddled around one player, so you need to be able to maneuver your way through. You never know what you might need, so stay prepared. My bag tonight features: my little Kate Spade makeup bag for touchups, rollerball perfume, Laptop, Charger(s), folder to keep game notes, notebook, pens, gum (and mints), and flip flops.
