Your "Must-Have" Pens Playoff Outfit

Hey, everyone! Today we are switching things up a bit to talk about hockey. If you follow me on Snapchat you already know I've been religiously watching the Pens in this playoff season. Last year, when the Penguins won the Stanley Cup, Pittsburgh was L.I.T. I've never been a part of a more thriving community. The fans poured into the streets after that final game. If you lived in South Side there was zero sleep to be had. The next week, I watched the parade and the city seriously felt like an amusement park. The energy, excitement, and pure happiness was electric.

This year, Pittsburgh has been particularly on edge. The taste of last year's victory has not been forgotten and we want it back. Every time I think we have the series in the bag, the other team gets ahead and I'm back to sweating bullets and fidgeting with anxiety. Last night I was sitting with my friends watching the game thinking there was no way we could go from winning the last game 7-0 to losing this game and I sure didn't want to go to Game 7. My body did not want to deal with that kind of stress. But, like I said, every time I thought we had it in the bag, the universe decided to knock me down a few pegs. I am sure as hell not a Senator's fan, but Anderson did an amazing job last night. I'm also not going to rant about how there was no goalie interference... but there was none.

ANYWHO, everyone knows no game day is complete without rocking your favorite jersey or hat. I picked up all of my game day essentials online at NHL Shop. My game day attire consists of this sporty and loose fitting jersey, leggings, and white slip ons (perfect for hiding the fact that I've consumed a large amount of beer and buffalo chicken dip. sorry not sorry.) But, let's be real, those jerseys can get toasty, especially when you're brimming with excitement and cheering and having an all around good time. I am nothing if not resourceful and always have a trick or two up my sleeve.

How cool is this shirt?? I'm such a sucker for a beard and hockey has a plethora of good looking men with beards. I saw this shirt and immediately knew I had to make it mine. It's hilarious, but I'm also low key obsessed...

When you're heading to a bar jam packed with fellow Pens fans, things can get pretty heated and as much as I love my Crosby jersey, sometimes I want something a little lighter. This playoffs shirt is light enough to slip under your jersey and perfect when you want to switch things up.

The new playoff line is on point! I love how each line is not only branded for the team, but the different hometowns and regions where the team plays. Their "Steel City Hockey" "Pennsylvania" and "Defend the Burgh" shirts are just a few of my favorites.

In both the jersey and the shirts, I would recommend going up a size. I always prefer my tops a little looser and if you stay true to size they're definitely form fitting-- especially the shirts.

*Me thinking about Game 7: equal parts anxiety and excitement. Such a blur of emotions! 

Be sure to check out the new NHL Playoff line and, as always, GO PENS! 🐧

  1. I'm with ya on the tops being a little bigger. especially if there is a potential for layering! Super cute comfy look.

  2. I don't really follow hockey but I do appreciate the style of the sport outfits! Your "Must-Have" Pens Playoff Outfit nails it! I love the idea that the clothing can be used to hide the amount of food consumed! Haha!!
