one NFL shirt: two looks {day to date night}

Football season is in full swing and the Husvar House is all full of excitement.  We are Vikings fans, yes a Pennsylvanian man + Virginian girl, living in Southern California = Minnesota Vikings fans, don’t ask.  For the first time in what feels like forever, the Vikings are not only winning, but playing really well.  I’ll never root for another team (no fair weather fans over here), but it sure is more fun when your team is winning!


Jumping on board the Vikings wagon wasn’t super difficult for me as I never really grew up loving one team.  We don’t have any local teams in Virginia, unless you include the Washington Redskins, who actually play in Maryland.  It isn’t true local.

Over the years, I started to actually emotionally invest in the team, despite their apparent love of losing.  Maybe the best part was that it was an additional reason to shop for clothes.  Hey, purple is totally my color! My husband definitely never complained and as of recently, NFL women’s clothes are actually super cute.  It is about time us stylish female fans were recognized!

Today I take one awesome tee from casual day to date night and that tee is the Minnesota Vikings Nike Purple Fan V-Neck.  Love, love. It is team branded to the max with bold purple and gold but has a modern vintage look, which allows it to transition easily from casual to date night.  I paired my tee for the game afternoon with light blue shorts, matching team color socks and white sneakers.  I am always on the look out for purple and gold accessories to add into my football Sunday wardrobe! These will come in super handy as the weather cools!


My hair is a mess and this is my 2nd up of coffee, but I’m ready for our early 10 AM (west coast) Vikings game!


So the game is over but the night has just begun – time to go celebrate a win or drown your sorrows!  My husband and I had a comedy club date night a few days days ago, so I tested out my NFL night outfit.  Same tee that I wore that day watching the game, I just made a few swaps and additions.


First off, I added a plaid shirt for the cooler desert nights.  I’m completely obsessed with plaid, as you’ll see on my blog and Instagram.  I mean, it is the perfect fall pattern.  Speaking of patterns, I love patterns over graphics, so this pairing really pleased me!  I was excited to realize I had a lightweight purple plaid already in my closet! SKOL!


I traded the tall socks and shorts for distressed skinny jeans, which I gave a short cuff to.  The sneakers also needed to go, almond suede platform sandals felt right.  It is still in the 100s here in Palm Springs, so my boots are not seeing the light of day for another few weeks.  …can’t wait for the heat to go!


Find this tee and SO many others at the NFL Shop!
