It’s a great time of year… if you can stand it.
The Dodgers are having a rough couple weeks right now, so I thought a quote from their eternal announcer, who is in his 65th (!) season, would be appropriate. I have and endless amount of respect and admiration for Vin Scully, as he’s been with the Dodgers since their days in Brooklyn, and he’s as much a staple as Tommy Lasorda (who you babies of the 80s will recognize as the Slim Fast guy.) Both men are an institution in the Dodgers franchise, and I’m happy to share today’s outfit which has a reference to yet another, the great Jackie Robinson.
I’ve mentioned before, but my go-to for dressing up a baseball shirt is a nice blazer. Especially in Los Angeles, you’re dressed for virtually any occasion with a t-shirt, jeans, and a blazer, with the exception being maybe the Oscars. And honestly, why would you want to deal with that kind of traffic? So, I picked a popular Dodgers tank for today’s outfit, and, my favorite, a white tuxedo-lapel open blazer, all on top of a basic skinny jean. As I’m actually a huge fan of their products, I paired in some Toms sunglasses, and a stacked heel bootie that should still render the stadium stairs navigable. I threw in locally made bag, small enough for stadium regulations, in red for the accent color in the Dodgers logo, and of course a version of the ever-popular LA hat. Most importantly, I’ve included this 42 necklace, so now just like every ballpark in the MLB, you, too, can sport Jackie Robinson’s number and pay homage to his incredible life.
