Yankee Stadium – Jim Beam Club

Last week I had planned back to back trips to Yankee Stadium (read about the first trip here), and the second day stretched into a third thanks to a rain delay. The unexpected day three at the ballpark led to a quick trip to H&M to find something for the Saturday. ANYWAY! Friday/Saturday vs. the Royals and it was CC Sabathia bobblehead giveaway day.

Gates Open

Friday night: 5:00; although I think they actually opened at 4:00. I got there around 6:15. The first 18,000 guests received the CC Sabathia bobblehead and I’m so glad my mom and I both got one – considering we arrived later than I usually like to. However, the rain may have kept people away for a little bit.

Saturday night the gates opened at 5:00. No giveaway for this game as it was the make from Friday.

This section gave access to the Jim Beam Club which has a full bar, a patio area by the seats with another small bar. Inside the lounge there was free popcorn, peanuts, and unlimited drink refills (fountain drinks only). These seats are

Beautiful. Case in point…

My mom and I went with the value bucket and ate ALL the popcorn. We are popcorn people. **Reminder: popcorn are peanuts arecomplimentary and unlimited in the Jim Beam Club** By the time we made through Saturday’s make up game, we have probably gone through two bags each. I may have also ate some of a third bag, but who’s actually keeping track? Plus the bags are kind of small.

Overall game two of Saturday’s double header was a beautiful night for baseball, although a little warmer than the night before.

Game Day Style

Here’s a recap of what I wore to each game. You don’t always have to wear a team tee or jersey to a game. Remember your favorite teams colors and incorporate that in what you wardrobe. Obviously you want to be functional when you’re at a ballpark. I love wearing a jumpsuit and found these two at Lily Rain Rice Village. The first jumpsuit I paired with this Free People bralette in white. I usually like to pair my jumpsuits with a wedge or a heel, but not at an outdoor ball park where people are good at spilling beer and whatnot. So I opted for a Tory Burch Miller sandal. I’ve had multiple pairs of Millers over the years, but here are the pair I am wearing now.

Thanks to Friday’s game being a rain out, and we would be returning the next day, I had to make an emergency stop at H&M in Times Square for something to wear. Leave to H&M to come in clutch. I couldn’t find the exact tank that I wore, but I did find the v-neck  version here. It’s super cute as well, and will probably be ordering it to wear for work. These are the white jeans I basically wore all summer long.

Coming up in the Major League game day adventures, I’m heading to Wrigley Field for the first time as they take on the Cincinnati Reds in August. I’m excited to be checking off one of my must-sees on my stadium bucket list.

Until next time,

My Favorite Stores

**This post was supposed to go up last week, but somehow got deleted. ANYWHO here we are!**

For the past few weeks, my entire Instagram timeline has been jammed packed with Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts. While I’m not currently shopping it (I may pop in sometime this week) I got to thinking about where the majority of my clothes come from. No shade to those that are big into the N Sale, but frankly I’m a little over hearing about it. I love to shop and several of my friends are big N Sale girls and more power to them! However, all this N Sale had me thinking about where I do my shopping. I get the majority of my clothes from online boutiques and some mainstream stores. So I’m here to share with you my favorites for staple pieces and shops that will always keep you on trend. PS, I have linked the store’s websites, and also included their Instagram accounts!

Express There’s no secret that I love Express. 98% of my jeans are from Express, and I always know I can rely on them for cute dresses and basics. I frequently pop in just to check some things out. But for the most part, I buy through the app. I love when things show up on my doorstep. LOL. @express

Lily Rain Okay. If you’ve been paying attention to my Instagram posts, you will have noticed my blooming love affair with Lily Rain. Seriously, I absolutely love this store. If you are in the Houston area there are three boutiques in the city and there are several throughout the country as well. Not to mention, you can shop online. You guys, get ready cause I just did a massive haul the other day and can’t wait to share it with you this week. @lilyrain

Anthropologie Every girl is an Anthro girl! I’ll never forget the first time I stepped foot in an Anthropologie. It was the Rockefeller Plaza location, and if you’ve been there, you know how much of a wonderland it is. 2 stories of beautiful clothes for every occasion, and I could stay in there for hours. If you are ever in New York City, do yourself a favor and give your soul what it deserves – a shopping trip at Anthro in Rockefeller Plaza. You can thank me later. @anthropologie

Vogue Society Boutique I stumbled upon this cute online store through Instagram and I love it! Sharon and Kait are a mother/daughter duo who own VSB. The store launches new items every Sunday and Monday. @voguesocietyboutique

Vici Collection Every Saturday I have to brace myself and my wallet for what’s about to happen to my feed. Vici Collection releases a new collection every Saturday and the clothes are so cute and ALWAYS need to be in my closet. I wish Vici would just add me to their automatic ship list if they have one. I’ll take everything, please! Bill me later! Do yourself a favor and go follow @vicidolls

Pomp and Circumstance Boutique A few weeks back on my Instagram Story I complained about shipping fees. Well let me tell you P&C feels my pain and always offers free shipping! Stay on trend and colorful at P&C. If you are in the Houston area, you can find them in Rice Village! @pompandcircumstanceboutique

JLUX LABEL Whenever I need an outfit for a night out, or something just a little sleeker, I rely on J Lux to get me right. Their prices are perfect and the quality of the clothes is even better. Their Instagram inspires me to go out! LOL When considering outfits to pack, there’s always some JLUX in my suitcase! @jluxlabel

Give these stores a follow and be sure to let me know on my Instagram or in the comments, what boutiques I should give a try. I’m always looking for something new!

Until next time!
