ARE YOU A BASEBALL FANATIC?

Baseball #2014
Hello guys! I hope that September is going great so far. As I mentioned in my previous post, I know that in the US fall means baseball. They have all these different teams and people of any age or sex go watch them play. It sounds like something really fun but, unfortunately, it's not something we do here. I've told you before that I really love styling and I try to have a positive attitude when new opportunities show up. So, I decided to use the great products from Fanatics, the leading online retailer for everything sports, specializing in apparel for all of your favorite teams, to create an outfit suitable for a baseball game.
You obviously get that I don't know the first thing about baseball, let alone any of the teams. I simply chose the Yankees because Joey(from the Tv show FRIENDS) was a fan and it was the only team I knew. And then, there was the question. What to wear at a baseball game? Since I've never been to one, I decided to think this logically. I've been to many sports games in my life and I know that the basic rule is comfort. You need to dress casually and smart, while keeping it stylish.
I chose this short overall because it's comfy and playful and looks less provocative with a cropped top than a pair of shorts. The top is the best solution for warm and sunny days and the sneakers are a simple game staple. What else would you wear? Heels? You want to be able to climb stairs, pass over people to get to your seat and, of course, jump and cheer for your team. A crossbody bag is the best choice since you will have your hands free and I simply refuse to wear a fanny pack(sorry).
Add a bit of bling, your sunnies and don't forget your baseball hat! You can check this great selection of baseball hats at www.fanatics.com/MLB_Hats and choose your favorite. After all, what is a baseball game without the hats? Plus, you could incorporate them in your everyday style if you want to. When it comes to the game though, just keep it sporty and chic and you are good to go!
All of you baseball fans, tell me, which is your favorite team?

SPORTY, CHIC AND FASHIONABLE

source: Pinterest
I remember the time when sneakers used to be a big fashion DON'T. And I laugh. Right now, they have become one of the hottest accessories for fashionistas. I bet all of you, who always were fans of these shoes, are now jumping for joy on your new colorful Nikes. The times when the sneakers were strictly made for working out are over. You can now find them in any possible combination of color, material and brand, suitable for every weird and difficult taste. If you prefer classic minimalism, black and white Stan Smiths are also making a comeback. If you like to experiment(like me) you can go crazy and have colors, patterns and glitters on your feet, saying goodbye to blisters for good! Sneakers, slip-ons and loafers are everywhere, from runways(even Chanel!) to the streets and they are waiting for you to love them. 
Now that you can wear sneakers with dresses and skirts, it's also time to embrace another trend, also comfortable, and wear your heels with sweatpants. Sporty chic rules so you have now no excuse not to wear your sportswear outside.
I'm really curious to see how many sneakers I'm going to spot at Fashion Week in Athens. It's only two days away! This is actually another reason I'm happy-I'm wearing heels so all of you who are taller than me and are now wearing flats, BOO-YAH! Just kidding! I'm just really excited that the comfy shoe I wear every single day is in fashion! Please God, ehm...Karl, could you please continue making awesome things happen? I know you will!
What are your thoughts on this trend? Have you already fallen for it? Or not?
p.s. The last one is a photo of my sneakers. My Stan Smiths are probably the oldest ones you'll find "alive". They belonged to my aunt when she was my age! 
p.s.2 I am in love with the Nikes in the last photo before mine♥
