On the agenda for today was a trip to Dodger Stadium to partake in a little Opening Week action against the Giants. The Dodgers didn’t fare so well, but we’ll get to that later.
I have loads of Yankee gear, but only own a Dodgers hat, so it was time to put together an ensemble that included a little bit of blue and white to root for the local team. And to root on Mr. Matt Kemp, aka Rihanna’s man, aka my West Coast version of Derek Jeter.
I found this fab little number that was full o’ Dodgers colors including an extra hint of green, so I figured this would totally work.
Hi dress with blue and white speckles and green, what look like, hibiscuses. Or is it hibiscui or just hibiscus? Either or, dress was needing a bit of help and I was ready to assist.
Now I was ready to head to a sporting event, so keeping the piece as a dress was not happening – I decided to do a little snippy action.
I cut off the length and had a brand, new top totes suitable for some baseballing! I was going to trim the sleeves, but as a fair-skinned gal, I tend to look for as much coverage as possible especially when I’m going to be out in the sun, for a while, in the middle of the day.
Here’s the completed piece…
Take me out to the ballgame!! My top was the perfect accompaniment to my LA hat, jeans and chartreuse flip-flops. We enjoyed the clearest of days to watch a blowout game…
…listen to American Idol Elliot Yamin sing “God Bless America”, and eat the most delicious chocolate malt ice cream with my bro.
And, before the game started, I had my first sighting outside the stadium! Woo hoo!! The lovely Heidi recognized me and came up to say hello. I was completely surprised and totally thrilled! So fantastic to get to meet followers in person 🙂
So, the Dodgers lost miserably (0-9) but the day was a blast. New friends, yummy snacks, sunny day…the best way to spend a Saturday!
