As you know, I’m a southern boy. Although I was born and bred in Mississippi, the spirit of New Orleans, Louisiana (affectionately known as “Nawlins”) pumps through my veins. New Orleans is one of the few American cities that can match the magic and brilliance of New York City; with the first step on that creole soil, you’re cocooned in extraordinary energy.
I can still remember my first visit to the Big Easy. It was 2003 and Mardi Gras was in full swing. I was a pre-teen but I dove headfirst into the revelry – changing my fate forever. The food, history, people, football, and magic – quite literally – mesmerized me. I’ve visited New Orleans a dozen or so times since then, and the allure remains.
I was thrilled when Majestic Athletic, one of the NFL’s top licensing partners, invited me to be among their 2015 Coordinators. With the New Orleans Saints being one of the few NFL teams I keep up with, the Saints were an obvious choice for my style challenge.
Between jerseys, foam fingers, branded caps, and pom-poms, sporting events are full of fans showing their loyal support but how do you translate this support out of the bleachers and into your everyday wardrobe? Thankfully, that’s where Majestic Athletic comes in. With an incredible variety of licensed apparel from all your favorite teams, Majestic makes it easy to champion your choice NFL team in any occasion.
I paired my New Orleans Saints full-zip hoodie with a pair of ripped denim and my favorite slouchy black tee – the perfect look to run errands and not look like a slob. I love that the hoodie adds the polished finishing touch to this look and the fact that it’s insanely comfortable doesn’t hurt either! I stopped into my local park to answer a few emails (with coffee, in hand – of course!) and gather my thoughts before tackling the remaining items on my to-do list.
So, which team do you love? Which piece from Majestic’s collection would you rock with confidence? Let me know in the comments below!
