As a Pennsylvania girl, born and raised, I was never going to be anything other than a Steelers fan. I was indoctrinated early on, and it’s true that I claim to bleed black and gold. I love my Terrible Towel, and I very seriously considering one of my kids Myron after the legendary “voice of the Pittsburgh Steelers.”
Football is a big deal in my family. And with our team having the best Superbowl record in the nation (8 games played, 6 won!) I stand by my choice. Of course, now that I’m a married mom of three living across the country, I find it harder to find other Steelers fans. My husband doesn’t watch sports at all, and all of our friends support a more local team.
So it’s up to me to be sure that I am heavily kitted out in my team’s gear whenever it comes to game day!
I think every sports fan has his or her own good luck traditions. For instance, my dad is a HUGE Pittsburgh fan, but he refuses to watch the games live. He believes that when he watches them, they lose. So he prefers to record and then watch them later.
My tradition has always been my Steelers ball cap. I used to have a college boyfriend who was obsessed with the Steelers, and he let me wear his hat on game day. Ever since then, I’ve always had my own cap to don when it came time for my team to play.
And who can resist a good accessory, anyway? I LOVE my Steelers earrings, which add that bit of girlish charm to my sometimes quite manly ensemble. They’re something I enjoy wearing all through the season, even when my team isn’t playing. I especially enjoy wearing them when we’re at our friends’ homes watching games featuring their teams. It’s my subtle style dig.
Of course the main event for any fashion picks when it comes to stadium style is your top. Some will go for jerseys, but I’ve never been into those. I prefer a big comfortable hoodie that is both stylish and supportive of my boys!
Paired with my favorite black jeans, you can’t really go wrong. As the weather gets cooler, it keeps me warm and snuggly, and it’s great by itself or over a tshirt.
I also LOVE my Steeler’s flip flops. Again – who doesn’t love a great accessory? These ones are unisex, and they are a super cute complement to the rest of my outfit.
My passion for my team knows no bounds. But as a woman, I want to feel good in my clothes. I have a passion for fashion, too! When it comes to buying gear, I order from NFLShop, which has the most amazing high-quality fashion and accessories you could ask for.
Whether I’m jumping up and down with my Terrible Towel…
Or running like a crazy person through our front yard after a touchdown…
I know I’m covered for every eventuality.
