Outfit Inspiration: What to Wear to an Atlanta Braves Game

Memorial  Day marked the unofficial  start of summer. For many that means beach days and bar-b-que, but for us in Atlanta, it means baseball! If you find  yourself trekking downtown to Turner  Field this summer, make sure you look fab doing so. I'm bringing you three outfit ideas that are both comfortable  and chic for game day. GO BRAVES!






Embrace the girl in you with a striped tank dress  and fun canvas sneakers. Add a pop of color with a cross body purse and lip stain that will  survive those game day snacks. Shield yourself  from those rays with a chic Braves visor that is simple enough  to compliment  the outfit and shows who  your rooting for at the same time. If you have big hair like me, a visor is always a plus!



You can never go wrong with a white top and distressed denim. Liven up the two staples with leopard print canvas sneakers (they're a neutral in my book) and vibrant stacked bracelets. Carry your essentials in a neutral cross body and top of the ensemble with an Braves bucket hat. The bucket hat is very trendy at the moment and pulls together this boho chic ensemble. Don't forget the lipstick!




Ripped jeans, a cool tank, and Converse always make a great combo. A statement bag and subdued jewelry takes away the fuss. Fake the "makeup look" with a classic Braves hat and lip gloss.



You can find more gear from your favorite professional team at Fanatics.com. They have something for the entire family.

Diva's Guide to Blogging: 6 Apps That Make My Blog Life Easier

As I  get the hang of this blogging thing, I've found that the use of certain  apps and websites help make it a little easier. Here a a few that I  use every time I  publish  a post.


1. PhotoGrid App


If I  want to upload an Instagram photo that is the perfect fit,  or slideshow, all of my photos are edited at some point with PhotoGrid. It's  easy to use and you can share to your  other social media platforms directly from the app. Easily one of my faves!

Cost: Free

2. Polyvore App


I use the Polyvore app to create my Outfit Inspirations.  The white background  makes the "sets" look clean and refined. It is a social media site itself so you can follow other people who are creating inspiration  boards and like and share their posts. I use the app as opposed to the website because I do most of my blogging from my phone. 

Cost: Free


3. Instagram  App


Good ole IG! When I  post previews to posts on Instagram, I make sure to use relevant hashtags to bring readers to my page and then to my site. Instagram  is great because  I  simply press the Facebook and Twitter buttons and I  have three uploads in one!

Cost: Free


4. Facebook   Pages Manager  App


I can post and check  stats at the same time! If I choose,  I  can pay  for ads as well. 

Cost: Free


5. Twitter




Just posta quick blurb, hashtag,  and link and I'm good to go. I've gained more followers and interactions using hashtags and posting during peak hours. Hello #scandal, #greysanatomy and #HTGAWN. Basically it is good to tweet during any Shonda Rhimes show.

Cost: Free


6. Pinterest



Oh how I  live Pinterest!  I have a board dedicated to my blog specifically, but often pist the same thing across different  boards to increase exposure. So far it has worked.


Cost: Free




Let me know of any apps that you use to make your blogging life better. Just click the titles to follow me on my social media platforms!
