Holy late-season-matinee, Batman. As mentioned on many an occasion, we don’t do too many midday games out here, let alone a Saturday 1pm puck drop. Not to mention that this game–like all the games that the Sharks play now, really–is a must-win, and the mighty Blackhawks are in town.

Big game on little coffee? There’s a cute outfit to cure that.


I decided to leave the black at home for this game, change things up a bit. I even went so far as to wear nude nylons–which are nowhere near as warm as my black stockings, but pairing the black with the length of my dress would have made me look shorter than I already am, so I sacrificed having feeling in my toes.

Though you can’t see it, I’m wearing a full dress, not just a skirt. However, this little boutique-y bough number is sleeveless, so it most definitely needed a few layers over it. I chose this brown bomber-style leather jacket–bought from the same store as my dress–as it is heavy enough to keep me warm at the rink but doesn’t overpower the dress.


I don’t always rock a scarf at games, but this spring-y plaid-print H&M was perfect for tying the whole outfit together. It integrated the same shade of blue as my dress with other primary colors that were perfect for matching my jewelry to. I got a little funky with the accessories, mixing sugar skulls with lip rings, but kept to the color palette.


Now, two weeks of road games in which the Sharks need to get their act together if they want to play into the end of April–and give me an excuse to wear more crazy things.

Until the next puck drops,
