Fanatics – Game Day Style: Boston Red Sox

There is nothing I love more than going to a Red Sox, Patriots, or Bruins game. I just love the atmosphere of a live sporting event (admittedly it is better when my teams are winning). And with every game comes Game Day Style and Fanatics is a place to help with that.

Fanatics is a fabulous website where you can find all of your game day style needs. They have everything from MLB hats to jackets to sweatshirts to accessories for whatever team of your choosing. They are basically a go to place for your game day style.

When it comes to me “game day style” I like to keep it pretty minimal in terms of the team logo. If I’m wearing a shirt with the team name then I won’t wear a hat sporting it too. On some occasions I will break this self imposed “rule” but not often. And I also like to be able to wear game attire out after because I tend to go out when the game is over. I thought about all of this when creating my Fanatics look and I also thought about the other thing we love in Boston, FALL BASEBALL. If the Red Sox are playing in October it means we are one very happy city (unless they lose and break all our hearts).

I first started with the New Era Boston Red Sox Ladies Cadet Hat. I’m personally a huge fan of this style hat. Actually I own one of these myself with the Sox and not the B on it. I love the easy military look of it which is very popular these days.  From there I kept it simple; white t shirt, boyfriend jeans, a boy cardigan and sneakers. A pop of pink for some color (a smaller bag to get through security) and the Boston Red Sox Love Print Infinity Scarf that I am completely obsessed with and need to add to my wardrobe. And the best part about this look, you can easily make it summer appropriate. Trade out the boyfriend jeans for shorts and lose the sweater, change the sneakers into flip flops…easy peasy.

So I’ve showed you my Game Day Style and how Fanatics can help you with yours. Now tell me what your style would be like?

Recently Purchased

Since I had been on a shopping hiatus for the month of May and hadn’t really pulled a new shopping post together in the months before that, I thought I would take the time to show you the recent addition I have made to my closet and my technology love. It isn’t a whole lot, but it is something.

I had been hoping that my Stitch Fix would be my shopping for the month, but that was a pretty big bust (read about it HERE). Instead I found myself upgrading my iPhone 4S to the 5S in gold thanks to some prodding from friends. And of course with that kind of upgrade a new case needed to happen (although I may have bought the case before the phone and have 4 other cases at home that I have had for a month, but SHHH!). I was able to pick up the fun Vera Bradly case at the outlets so it was a fabulous price. Also on that trip I was able to pick up the adorable anchor belt which is 100% similar to the one in the picture. Found it at the Gap and it was less than marked so I scooped that up.

The dresses are more recent additions. I love the stripped one at the Loft when they were having a massive sale on line. It is long so it will need to be hemmed and it may be a tab big in the waist, but it was final sale so I will get the alterations done.  The other dress I picked up just last Tuesday at J Crew. It was normally $110 (insane right??!!) and it was on super sale so I got it for less than half off. And before I now need a new external charger for my phone, I got the fun printed one while I was there for under $15.00.

Finally the shoes. Oh how I love all my new shoes. The wedges I bought while I was no shopping in May. But in my defense I had a coupon and a gift card so it was no money out of my pocket. I’m only slightly obsessed with them and have worn them HERE. The ankle wrap ones are a J Crew Factory find. I had purchased them in red a while back and what 100% certain about them. But I wore them HERE for the first time and I was hooked. I love how they look with pants. I decided to see how much they were on line and was able to get them on super sale with another coupon on had so they ending up breaking the bank at a whopping $3.93! SOLD. And last but not least are the newest addition to my Sperry family. I blame Jessica at Bows & Sequins for this purchase and feeding my addiction to all things Sperry.

What have you recently added to your closet?

JCrew Factory Lust

JCrew Factory Lust
My name is Andi and I’m a J Crew-aholic. And you know what, sorry, not sorry. I can’t help it. I love it. I love the colors and the prints and the styles and the options. I love the shoes and the shorts and how everything fits and the quality. And on occasion, I like the price. Sometimes if you are lucky you can get a really good deal on something at the J Crew store. But for those moments that you aren’t so lucky in the retail store, there is the Factory. And more often than not, something that is popular in the store in one season will end up at the factory story the next for a fraction of the price with only minor difference. So above you will see my current J Crew Factory lust list. Screams spring doesn’t it? Bet you can guess where my mind is. HA. Anyway, with these pieces in mind I created three different spring/summer styles to help break out of this winter doom. I personally love them all. Too bad me and my wallet are having a difference of opinion right now or they would all be in my closet.
So tell me my dear ABCers, what items are you lusting after to break out of this winter blah time? Anything on my list strike your fancy? Share in the comments.

True Blue

True Blue by andiabcs featuring leather ballet shoes

Last week I Twitter I just said blue, pink or green. and based on my replies, blue was the winner. So I went J Crew/J Crew Factory “shopping” for my favorite blue items and narrowed it down to these pieces. And then because I’m itching for new clothes to put into outfits, I styled 3 of said blue pieces. I couldn’t help myself.

So tell me ABCers, what are your favorite blue pieces? What color do you like to mix blue with?

Friday’s Fancies #3

If you know me you know what a football fanatic I am. I’m actually pretty nuts about it. Last year I watched every game the Patriots played and those were some of the best Sunday’s ever. I love sitting in my living room with some Patriots attire on and a cold beer next to me with some perfect football-y food as a bonus(I’m talking to you slow cooked BBQ chicken wings!). So you can imagine my excitement when I saw today’s Friday’s Fancies prompt encouraging my love of football with fashion.

Friday Night Lights

So I ask, what is your Friday Night Lights(in my case Sunday afternoon) style?
