I think we can all agree that it’s time for Spring. Not because I want to hurry through the hockey season, absolutely not! But because I want to pair spring clothes with my tights to wear to the next several Sharks home games. (I know I really shouldn’t complaining when California has been unseasonably warm and everything east of the Sierra Nevadas is under a sheet of ice.)

So it was a bit fortuitous that the morning of the Sharks’ tilt with the Calgary Flames, SAP Center hosted the Harlem Globetrotters–which meant that the ice was covered for a couple hours, which also meant that it wasn’t quite as cold come puck drop.



I was bound and determined to bust out the spring-time color palette and get a leg up on that warmer-weather wardrobe — even if I still have to bundle it under a heavy coat at game time.

To brighten up a sheer black stocking and my ballet flats, I chose this minty sherbet tank dress from H&M. I typically wear this with bare legs and wedge sandals, but I’m pretty sure the climate at the Tank isn’t going to agree with such a minimal ensemble. I could have gone with my mainstay black cardigan, but I instead chose to keep the look extra bright, and reached for a periwinkle-blue button-down cardi instead.

Granted I still had to pack a heavy peacoat to keep from having a massive chill all game, but it was totally worth it!


I left my usual gigantic baubles at home and went with a small ring set I snagged from Charming Charlie to pair with my dainty Gucci watch. I don’t know if you guys on the East Coast have Charming Charlie, but it’s basically jewelry store paradise.

Until the next puck drops,
