An MLB team that is part of the National League Central Division and plays in Chicago, IL. The Cubs are also known as "The North Siders" because their park, Wrigley Feild, is located on the north side of Chicago (and has been since 1914). Their colors are blue, red, white and grey and the Cubs hold the longest championship drought in professional American sports, winning their last title in 1908.
I'm back! I know I technically haven't been "gone" from the blog, but secretly I snuck away for a week. A week?! What? (Thank you to scheduled posts) I was able to clear my schedule and head down to Dallas with my BFF Megan for the Final Four games! Yay and boo to those, amirite? UK won the first game with (another) buzzer beater from the one and only Aaron Harrison against Wisconsin. So to say that was pretty amazing would be an understatement. Then we played Monday for the national championship against UConn and … well … lets just say it didn't end up like the first game. So now I'm back to New York (writing this to you at 2am right when I got home) AND from my new camera! I've been saving a ton of money with this whole "no shopping" thing for Lent and I decided to invest in a new (and better) camera! I was using the Canon t3i (with a 50mm 1.4f lens) and have now switched over to the Canon 60d (with the same lens). I found an amazing deal on eBay and I just could't pass it up! These are the first pictures from this camera and to say the least, I'm hooked! Yay new cameras!
Before heading home to NY, I was able to spend part of the day in Lexington with my besties Megan and Lucy. I was even so fortunate to meet Steph(!!) from White Coat Wardrobe-- let me tell you I'm in love. Can't wait to see her again real soon :)
Anyways… you probably wanna hear some baseball talk, right? Today is all about the Cubs (insert sigh here). Living in Chicago, you're forced to pick a side when it comes to baseball -- there is no love in between. There was a time there when I really rooted for the White Sox. I mean it's really cool to have a hometown team win the World Series. My love for the Cubs faded away after a break up (you know how those go) and with a number of horrible seasons. But once I started to really get into the game of baseball, I realized how wonderful this team really is. Sure they haven't won in over 100 years, but they're such a classic team. There is nothing like being at Wrigley, and I mean nothing. It's one of the best ballparks in America. And when they win, baseball will forever be changed. The city of Chicago will shut down, my office will probably go crazy and it will be the most memorable World Series in your lifetime (probably).
Lucky for you, when that moment comes, I have just the outfit for you! I'll be the first to admit that I love to wear dresses to baseball games. Probably because I just really hate pants, but also because it's the perfect way to look cute while still being comfortable and relaxed. This dress was an amazing buy from Target, although I bought it thinking I'd really only wear it to UK events. Silly me! I honestly wear it all the time when the weather is nice. I also snagged this awesome vintage Cubs hat when I started working. It fits so well and I have yet to see anything like it. And of course, I'm wearing my favorite shoes -- Jack Rogers. This time I'm breaking out my red and white ones and taking them for a stroll -- all the way to Wrigley!
