I’m finally getting the chance to wear the outfit that I’ve been planning since the Coyotes game against the Blues. I’ve been dying to wear this cute tweed skirt for some time now! These over the knee boots are the perfect thing to make the look less “school uniform” and more “edgy professional”.

I always like to play with looks and this one was definitely a bit different. I think over-the-knee boots are that perfect piece to make anything look edgier. The zipper all the way up brings a whole different element to the outfit, and that’s probably my favorite part.

Playing with colors that people would normally not wear together is my favorite thing. Blacks and browns, and black and navy…I just love it! If executed correctly, you can challenge the norms and be a little different. In this specific case, if you wear a navy to go with the black that is an obviously different shade, then you are good. If you wear blue that almost looks black, then please go change your outfit NOW. The tones of color have to be noticeably different before it’s okay to throw them on.

When I found this skirt that had black AND blue, I couldn’t wait to wear it out. It’s a little Cher Horowitz from Clueless,, and so it makes it just that much better. Wearing tights under it makes it look more put together, considering it hits above the knee.

The bling-ed out shirt means there is no need for a necklace (aka I keep grabbing at my neck because I feel like I’m missing a limb). Adding a blazer on top of it pulls the whole look together, and makes it chic and professional. Perfect for game-night.

Press Level Tip: Get started on an article during the game. Start writing stats and if you see a certain thing you’re going to focus on, do a little research on it during an intermission. It’s hard sometimes to write all of the stats during the intermission, because the game is still going to change so much in the third. Getting a jump-start on your writing will save you from uber long nights, and you won’t have to brainstorm on where you want to take your article.

She, on the other hand, must have been absent on the day that sport skills were passed out! Although, she does possess a zeal that most girls do not have for sports of all kinds, hockey has consumed her life in the most unexplainable way. Sports are such an integral part of who she is, and she is on journey of becoming a part of a professional sports organization. Growing up minutes from the Las Vegas Strip didn't leave Allison with many options for being a sports fan.Spending the majority of her summers on the East Coast, Allison became a fan of all things Boston, and her heart will always have a special place for the city (especially the Bruins). Allison currently is an employee of the Arizona Coyotes and falls more in love with the game each and every day.
