“I am thankful for the bat of Stan Musial, the arm of Bob Gibson, the legs of Lou Brock, and the glove of Ozzie Smith” -Jack Buck
Seeing as I have none of those things, however, I decided to improvise and make a casual Cardinals outfit for the ladies, today. The above quote is from the great Jack Buck, Cards announcer from 1954 all the way through the 90’s, which makes for a dang impressive career. His son, Joe Buck, still announces on ESPN, but has somewhat less of loyal following than his father. *ahem*
Today’s pairing has another nod to the 80’s uniforms in the powder blue shorts I found, and I decided to mix eras beyond that. The blazer and t-shirt are definitely more of the modern look, but I used a grey hat with contrast piping to reflect the uniform styles from the 1920’s. Gold feather earrings were my way of adding a nod to the mascot, without those enormous real feather earrings jutting out from under a ball cap. I also got super lucky, and managed to find a St. Louis company that makes fantastic wood watches – hours of scouring the interwebs for some locally made accessories finally paid off!
