Sports have always been a part of my life, especially baseball. I’ve attended many live games of America’s pastime, but one that I remember most was when I saw the New York Yankees play back when their old stadium was still standing. Those memories were all brought back to me when I participated in a campaign to construct the perfect baseball game day style for Fanatics, the leading online retailer for everything sports. I was tasked with picking the hat of my choice from the great selection Fanatics offers on their MLB hats page and pairing it with clothing and accessories to showcase my baseball-inspired outfits.
Scrolling through an array MLB hats, I was surprised to see how much Fanatics has available for baseball fans. I eventually decided on the New Era New York Yankees Galaxy 59FIFTY Fitted Hat. I love that hat not only because it shows off its wearer’s NY Yankees team spirit, but also because its stand-out print immediately caught my eye. I created two looks for a truly unique New York Yankees fan. Enjoy!

My deepest of thanks to Fanatics.com! Thanks for reading! XOXO,
April showers have brought May flowers and the transition from a Winter to Summer wardrobe. I was approached by a website called Raise.com to participate in their Closet Swap campaign! Raise.com is a marketplace where you can buy discounted gift cards for your favorite brands (https://www.raise.com/buy-gift-cards). You could also sell any of your unused gift cards for cash! Their Closet Swap campaign features the transition from a cold to warm weather wardrobe. For my contribution to the campaign, I decided to wear a loose, fringe top with a lace bandeau and pastel pink shorts underneath; something freeing and easy to move in. My Converse sneakers are both stylish and appropriate for tree climbing. I stayed light on the jewelry with skeleton earrings and several bracelets. Green glitter nail polish completed the look.
Bonus! Here are some of my top Summer accessory tips:
1. Pumped up kicks
Tired of those white laces? Swap out your standard shoelaces for something more colorful. Make sure you find a pair that are the same length as the original laces.
2. Dial up your nail art
Add designs and patterns to your manicure with a nail stamping kit. All you have to do is paint your favorite color polish over the decal, wipe off the excess with the scraper, and transfer the design from the stamp to your nails.
3. Dye your hair…temporarily
Colored hair extensions are an interesting and unexpected twist to a look. The extensions pictured below are the ones I used in my Gothic Holiday post. They are made out of real human hair which provides a very realistic result.
Thanks for reading and a great, big thank you to Raise.com!! XOXO,
