Sexy Strike-Zone Style: Softball in Central Park

30 Sep

Ever wonder what a softball girl wears before sliding into third base? Well, allow me to model my pre-game attire.

{Sexy Strike-Zone Style: Softball in Central Park}

New York is known as the concrete jungle where only the strong survive — and resourcefulness in many ways is the keystone.

With that being said, New Yorkers leave their homes in the morning ready to handle their day’s activities from 7am to 10pm and it’s all carried with them. For me, this was one such day — with my bag loaded with the contrasting mix of the day’s interview materials, plus my cleats, glove and softball clothes.

Knowing that I had a big day on the run — where I’d literally be walking for long distances over various surfaces — my attire had to allow comfort for both trekking and professionalism.

This basic, and casual, shirt dress turned into a funky outfit with a whimsical and natural look because of the details — the theme of which began from the practical consideration for my feet.

I went with my $5 blue ballet flats to which I paired with my $.25 Goodwill 1980s belt and vintage Vera scarf for the fresh punch of color to make the khaki shirt dress come alive.

But something was missing — I needed a little more detail to make the outfit go from the basic pop of color look, to the layered and polished look. And, it is in these moments of searching that I go to my closet where I consider anything and everything — mostly the subtle choice is what grabs my creativity first.

In this case, my plaid vintage waistcoat had me reaching to the hanger thinking, “I wonder if this will work — it might just do the trick.” And, sure enough it did!

Here’s the details of my “Sexy Strike-Zone Style” in Central Park:

    I adore MOM hand-me-downs! The dress fits you perfectly, and the Vera adds just the right punch of color, coordinating nicely with your groovy on-sale shoes. Did you win the softball game? Central Park makes such a picturesque backdrop. Lucky you…autumn in New York (and did I mention, GO YANKEES?)
