Grab those peanuts and Cracker Jacks, baby, because it’s BASEBALL SEASON!!!
In my city, opening day is pretty much considered a holiday. There are fireworks, parties, a parade, and even some celebrity sightings! This year Mr. OxyClean himself, Anthony Sullivan, was among the honored parade guests.
On a baseball-scale of “have we made a touchdown yet??” to “I have a Yankees tattoo on my leg!!”…I consider myself to be a solid 6. Since my husband is such a fan, going to a game is a great way for us to spend time together while doing something he loves. I also truly enjoy the atmosphere of the ballpark. Everyone is so excited, and the camaraderie of the crowd all supporting the same team is intoxicating (as are the yummy adult beverages we usually down before the game starts).
Although my “baseball high” usually fizzles out around the bottom of the third inning, one thing I never lose interest in is the merchandise! I don’t know what it is, but the combo of a sports logo, paired with an adorable design gets me EVERY time.
Seriously, just take my money.
So if you’re more concerned about what you’ll strut at the stadium than who actually wins, I’ve assembled 10 accessories to help you get your game on! Who says supporting your favorite team has to be drab?
I usually find Victoria’s Secret to be a bit pricey (not to mention it HAS to say “PINK”), but you can’t deny that VS has some super cute sports wear. You’ll be sure to find your favorite team, and the rhinestones don’t hurt either.
I’ve seen bracelets made out of baseballs before, but I like how this one has the bat and baseball glove charms as well. Gives it a bit more feminine flair.
These earrings can be customized to fit your favorite team’s colors. The shop offers 16 different bead choices in beautiful Swarovski crystals.
How comfy does this dress look??!! So perfect for spending all day at the ballpark, and don’t even get me started on that bow! Adorbs.
As much as we’d like the weather to be all sunshine and happiness, that’s not always the case. For those chilly night games, this sweatshirt is the ticket. I love the off the shoulder look, and the vintage graphic gives it a unique edge.
Still need to bundle up a bit more? This infinity scarf will keep your temp high, as well as your team spirit!
These headbands look so soft and cozy, not to mention super chic, too! Available in a variety of color and team combinations, it shouldn’t be hard to find one to fit your style.
On the other end of the weather spectrum, sitting out in the sun all afternoon won’t be nearly as bad if you’re sporting this delightful little crop top.
And we can’t forget the importance of keeping your drink cool! How about this custom glitter beverage koozie, personalized to match your team and cheer on your favorite baseball player.
Can we just take a moment and recognize that these exist? I can honestly say they would be a horrible choice for game day footwear, but c’mon, a shoe with a BAT as the heel???? They’re just too perfect. That heel, too much? No worries, they come in a wedge and a flat!
So who’s ready to play ball??!!! Let’s storm the mound, swing for the fences, and get ourselves ready for a whole new season of men in baseball pants!
Go sports! Do the thing and score the points!!!
