At this point in the season, I’m mixing and matching things from my closet that I’ve already worn to make them new and fresh for game night. Which is undertandable, because even someone with as ridiculous an amount of clothing as I own comes to a point where they wear something more than once in a hockey season.

So I just about fell over backwards when I went through my jacket arsenal before the Sharks Monday night tilt against the Pens and realized that I hadn’t worn one of my favorite blazers yet this season! Part of that is because I’ve been on a cardigan kick–thanks for the inspiration, “How To Get Away With Murder” binge sesh–but part of not pulling this fabulous piece out is because it is so noticeable that it doesn’t have the same impact if I wear it too often.

I mean, look at it. It’s hella bright!


The Basics: Black-and-white striped three-quarter length sleeve tunic dress from H&M. DKNY black tights. Black flats. Standard game night stuff.

The Jacket: If you’ve followed my outfits since last season, you’ve season my crazy coral H&M blazer before. They really do have the best quality jackets without blowing your paycheck and having to live off ramen for a month. While I love me a good boyfriend blazer, having a a girly work jacket like this one is a real must. Its single button closure hits right at my waist so it creates the ultimate femme silhouette (I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, always try your jackets on before your purchase them!)


The Arm Party: Yes, the blazer is the focal point of this outfit. But pairing fun jewelry in an opposing color can still work. I pulled some silver-and-aqua pieces that are pretty loud–come on, I put my gigantic watch and Turkish eyes bracelet together for goodness sake–but wouldn’t fight too hard with the coral jacket. Unfortunately I cannot for the life of me remember where the multi-bead ring is from, but I’m sure something similar can be dug up on Etsy.

Watch, I’m not going to want to wear any bright colors for about a month. It will totally happen.

Until the next puck drops,
