Be A Super Bowl Champ In Style This Sunday!

Keeping the style penalties to a minimum during this weekend’s big game

How do you support your team, and never sacrifice the Style factor? I am here to be your sideline coach and offer tips on how to keep the style penalties to a minimum during this weekend’s big game. Here are some fun fresh super bowl highlight ideas to keep more eyes on you then football mostly when your trying to impress that certain someone, and wanting to look chic in the stands, or even if you are like me a mom with 4 kids probably cooking and making snacks the whole time, but still want to represent your team and your fun personality of being that fun stylish mom even if itʼs spent most of the time in the kitchen.

1.Reinterpreting your own team Jersey shirt, can make it unique and creatively inspired to be something to talk about more than the half time show. Get some scissors and go to town make it your own. Cut out the collar and make it a v neck or cut a v in the back and tie it in a knot to make it more fitted. Either way you can make it fit and work for your comfort and body. Look amazing with some cute jeans to be that comfy guys girl every man loves on his big football day.

2. If football gear is just not your thing and there is nothing anyone can do to make you wear clothes you hate? Go for the nail polish! Put on the color of the team you want to win, or if you donʼt like either go for both colors be fun, bold, and ready for a great party.

3.Go for the shoulder pad look with your t-shirt blazer look. Casual but fun. Look like a boxy football person with those should pads built right into the blazer. Again worn with black skinny and heels your sexy and casual so you can still eat those chips and salsa like a champ.

4.Go for my personal fave, Accessories! Even if you have a little jersey or team t shirt on go with some funky accessories like a big bold necklace layered in the colors of the team, worn either with a plain white shirt or a team shirt. I like to go for the youth boys section in size large at target or wallmart for my team t-shirt because they fit better. Or you can go with a cute t-shirt that just is fun sport looking with big bold numbers even if they donʼt have a certain team name on it. Worn with a maxi skirt for a more trendy look or worn with jeans your ready to be that chic party champ fit for a super bowl.

Have fun, be chic, be a champion in your own style for the Superbowl this Sunday!

I made my own shirt for the “Good Things Utah” fashion segment I did if you want to know how I took some pics and gave you some directions below!

First I found my sons old football jersey! He has tons so I just picked his silver and black one to match some of the patriots coloring. Any number will do. If you don’t have tons of kids like me or they just don’t play football, then just go to Wal-Mart or any store buy one you like then you can cut that up. Buy in the boys section they will fit better to your size top that you pick to cut up. I picked an old blue thermal that I didn’t mind if cut it up…it was just collecting dust. Find it cut out the back of the jersey on each side in the back next to the seam. Then cut out the back of the shirt you choose to use and line up the seams and cut.

Then you pin-up the jersey to the top on the back side. line up the seams and pin so it doesn’t move with your sewing it. It will look weird if you don’t get it straight so just pin it up! I used my serger but if you don’t have one it’s fine just use your sewing machine same results.

Then you sew each side seam and top of the jersey to the shirt on all 3 sides.

Then after you have sewn all three sides pick what ever you want to go along the top of the seem on your upper middle back. I picked red flower print to pull in the reds from the team for the super bowl and because it makes it a bit more girly feel which I like. But like I said you can use what ever you would like! Have fun with it and get creative. Then I get a needle and thread to match the color of my ribbon which was red and hand stitch across that seam to sew it on and you can’t see the thread. But side note: I sewed on the ribbon first so I could get a straight line and then picked it out after, so you can do this or you can just free hand it and pin and hand sew it on. All to your preference.

Then after it is hand sewn on pick it out the white sew line not the red hand stitched one.

And Then your done!! Wear it with some cute skinny jeans or a fun long jersey knit maxi skirt. Just rock it with confidence and you will win the game of fashion on Super Bowl Sunday!

Happy Making and Happy Winning!

Self Love Sundays: Sign Your Name

You sign your name at the end of a letter, when you finish creating a piece of art, or when you are solidifying an important document!  We sign our name to all of these things….It shows that something is ours and leaves a record about where we have been.

This week I went to a concert with mind-blowing music!! It was the kind of music that made me feel like I wanted to get up a dance around like nobody was watching…….so that’s exactly what I did! There is no doubt that the crowed enjoyed every second of the sound because everyone was swaying back and forth with smiles on their faces.  When the concert was over the artist was crowded with people in the lobby signing autographs. The best part about it was that you could tell he was totally enjoying every second of  what he was doing.  Every time he signed an autograph I thought about how a seemingly simple signature was in fact his way of claiming his music and creativity as his own! So inspiring!

He signed his name, he was proud of what he did, and we all should be too!  Be so proud of everything you do that you will WANT to sign your name to it. Let the world know that you are you and that what you create is YOURS! Go. Do. Create. Be.

Cheers, Jen
