It’s been a long few weeks since there has been a home game for the Arizona Coyotes, but we’re finally here again and the outfit choices were endless (due to some unnecessary shopping sprees). I would say that I’ve been thinking about this day since the last home game on January 15th, but honestly I haven’t had time for that (the Super Bowl kept me busy).
I like to refer to myself as a “haute mess” (still chic but, you know, still chaotic). This is especially my life motto when I have a day full of classes and I’m still not caught up on sleep from the week before. Thank goodness for Kombucha and the leftover curry that I snacked on for dinner. So as per usual, my hair is the mess and my outfit was ultimately put together in the car (I had tights on and a leather jacket on when I left).
I fell in love with this skirt before it was even in stores, and so I had to have it for the game tonight. When I saw it in the Spring catalogue for J.Crew, I knew that it would be in my closet the second it hit stores…I can just say that I’m proud of myself for waiting 9 days before I drove home with it.
Of course I always put myself in the predicament of having one piece in mind that I have to wear, and then not knowing what to wear with it. This happens to me every single time because I imagine an outfit that ends up looking like I stepped off the crazy train. Let’s just say that the bright blue sweater I thought would be fab made me look more “5 year old school girl who doesn’t know how to dress herself” than I intended upon.
50 shirts after my first idea (which I tried in several different forms) I stuck with the shirt that they have it paired with in the catalogue, and this is probably what I should have done initially. Of course I make things hard on myself when I’m in a rush. So simplicity just wasn’t on my side because, life….
Anyways, I thought that I needed a change from my normal leather jacket, and this white blazer I had on a hanger laid out all nice in my trunk (which is an anomaly) seemed like a good option. I think I look a little Easter-y, but it looks good so all is good.
My shoes are officially bad luck. Four overtime games when I’ve worn them. We’ve gone 2-for-4.
Press Level Fashion Tip: If you can wear tights under a skirt or a dress, do it. Unfortunately tonight the tights were not on my side and my already too-big shoes just weren’t having it. Sliding around even more with my aching feet just seemed like a miserable combination. Obviously, you want to look professional, and girls have it hard, but tights really do help regulate some heat in your legs.
