Sunday Fun-Day: Gearing Up!

I hope everyone has had a great week so far! Since the referee situation seems to be ironed out, I thought I would dedicate this post to NFL Gear!

I did a post last season about some great finds on Etsy and other online stores for cute Super Bowl outfits. I absolutely love this shirt I picked up from 47 Brand this year. They are located on Newbury street (right near PinkBerry). I really was looking for a great comfortable vintage looking tee shirt that felt chic and feminine (but was not a pink Brady jersey).

Throwback Pic above: I purchased this shirt below for the Bruins Parade in 2011 and realized this was also 47Brand that I purchased from Lucy’s League (and as you guessed more expensive than buying directly).  However it still looks and feels great after being washed dozens of times.

I did end up picking up one of the cheaper pieces in the store during my visit. This shirt below retails for $38. However I do think this is a good investment piece because I know how well these shirts stand the test of time (and the washing machine)!

Here are some other cute choices:

$40 Rescue Red

$45 White Wash

I know I have readers all across the country so if you are also interested they carry almost all NHL, NFL, MLB and a large amount of college teams too! Also the men’s section is pretty awesome as well!

On a side note: to get ready for this weekend and add some fun to my outfit I painted my nails like little football laces! I was inspired by this photo below from Pinterest.

If you click through to the site they came from, you can purchase these little nail art stickers and just place them on painted brown nails. I did not end up purchasing them because I really would only need this for a day or two so it was not really worth it to me. Instead, I used some polish I already had in the drawer to get the same look and make it work.

Although I am normally an OPI girl, I really do like this “Haute Chocolate” color from Sally Hansen. The nail art pens (which I have used for French Mani’s before) are great for this too. I just painted the brown base coat, let it dry, then added white vertical lines down the middle. After this dried I went back and added the horizontal lines then also let them dry. (I know lot’s of drying time but it’s worth it!) It is crucial to finish with a clear top coat when using the Nail Art Pen so it does not scratch off.

With my nails done, and my T-shirt on (and some jewelry) I think I am all geared up for Sunday! Where do you get your game gear in Boston? Please comment below! Have a great weekend everyone!
