Check out the 7 For All Mankind Featherweight Trouser in Deep Blue Black. Oh yes...my quarterback, to be sure. I love the color, love the drape, love the lightweight denim (because ever since having the baby, something in my metabolism has changed and I am ALWAYS roasting hot...can't bear the thought of normal-weight denim most days). Love that I could wear these to chase little J at the playground and be the hip city mom I strive to be these days, but also dress them up for an evening out. Top draft pick right here.
J.Crew Ciel étoilé cardigan delivers. I love how delicate the sequins are... a little special, but not over the top. I could wear it to take little J to music class in a "oh yes, I am wearing sequins before 10am on a Monday...bring it" kind of way, or I could pair it with my favorite costume-jewelry earrings and those QB trousers above for a night out with the chicas. Very wide receiver and oh so pretty.
Remember when I told you about the Eat, Pray, Love branded collection at Fresh? I was captivated by the description of the products (and, like the marketing sucker I am, my love for the book made me assume I would love the scents... makes absolutely no sense at all, but that is what they are banking on), but had not actually smelled them with my own shnoz. Well, my fave playground for little J just happens to be a few blocks from Boston's Fresh store. So recently, I "had to run to the restroom at Starbucks" and happened to cruise on by for a sniff. OH MY. I just swooned over "Love", the fragrance inspired by Bali. Peeps, I think I have found my scent. I think Fresh's genius marketers say it best, "This fragrance bottles the bright, colorful, anything-is-possible feelings of falling in love. Scents of passion, like percolating pheromones, sun-caressed skin, and salty kisses, are combined with the lush aromas of Bali’s exotic landscape". Hells yes. I couldn't stop smelling my wrists for an hour after my spritz. I LOVE the floral, fruity, unabashedly flirtatious scent. And at $32/bottle, this is more attainable than some of the other delicious but super-pricey scents on the Fresh roster. Call it my cornerback of sexiness.
this blue one with the cute, cute back. Since it will help me get my buns back in shape, I will call it my tight end.
This shirt would be my runningback; the workhorse, dependable, daily wardrobe pick. J. Crew's Twist Knot T looks soft and comfy enough to wear all over town, yet there is an added cuteness with the twist that says, "see, I am making an effort." It is affordable enough that you needn't be crushed if someone gets jelly on it and it comes in many cute colors, some of which would hide jelly spectacularly well (see "wild plum").
Apparently there are 11 people on the field per football team during a game, so my list is merely half-done. Stay tuned for Part 2, which will feature my kicker (hint: ballet flats) as well as my linebacker. Aw yeah.
In the meantime, tell me, what's in your fall line-up?
P.S. - I would like to dedicate this post to the husband, who endures my (often-wrong and ill-conceived) football analogies with good humor and minimal eye-rolling, and to my girl Sara Sully Goody who, though quite pregnant, is no doubt hosting the best fantasy football draft you've ever seen again and with style and flair as per usual (Jason, you're a lucky man).
