Take Me Out To the Ball Game

This outfit was inspired by one of America’s greatest past times, some good ol’ baseball. I’m living back home in Arizona for the summer while I work at my dads law office because I’m trying to get some experience before I head off to law school next year. It turns out that my dads office has this yearly tradition of taking the day off and going to a baseball game during the day. I was pumped because I knew it would bring back memories of my younger days when we would go to the Diamondbacks games as a fam because my dad had season tickets. And I was secretly excited that I didn’t have to wear a shirt and tie for the day.

So one thing about me is that I really enjoy dressing for the occasion. Nothing over the top really. I just like it to be subtle enough that it doesn’t call a ton of attention, but where I still feel like I belong and people notice. I didn’t want to go all out with a D-backs hat and jersey; that’d be a little much for me. So I opted for this super comfy two-tone tee from Nordstrom Rack. Its made of a cotton-poly blend which makes it extra soft and helps it breath like crazy, a necessity in the Arizona heat. I felt like I had plenty of baseball vibes going on with the different color sleeves and I knew I was going to be super comfortable. Paired with a some jeans and off white sneaks it was the perfect outfit for a day at the ballpark. Oh and my Ray-bans. Can’t get any more classic than that. (I would’ve worn shorts because its crazy hot right now, but I knew the dome at Chase Field would be closed. Thank goodness for a/c!)

I got these kicks at Nordstrom Rack as well. They are seriously the most comfortable shoes ever. They weigh practically nothing; its like I’m not even wearing any shoes. I actually wore them all over Europe during my month long trip back in May (Thats a story for another post). Didn’t get one blister or have any sore feet. Score!

All in all, I was really digging this casual outfit. I was feeling super comfortable while still feeling like I didn’t look like I had just rolled out of bed. I know sometimes when guys dress “casually” they just want to wear basketball shorts, a tee and, heaven forbid, flip-flops. But with just a little effort and finding the right clothes, you can still show some style while feeling comfortable and casual.
