“There’s No Crying in Baseball!”

Baseball season technically began a few weeks ago, but for most people, it doesn’t officially begin until Summer.  It’s one thing to watch from home but going to a game is a whole different experience. Are you going to your first game this summer and don’t know what to wear? Fear not, we’ve got your guide to a fashionable day of America’s pastime.

One of the biggest considerations when picking an outfit is the weather, since most likely you’ll be outside and many stadium seats are uncovered. For a hot day, a pair of jean shorts with one of our cute tops with tanks would be perfect. If you’re going for a more formal look, our dresses are ideal. Plus, they come in several color choices so you can match it to the team of your choice!

If it’s going to be on the chillier side but not enough to warrant a sweater, make sure you bring a scarf which can be worn in a multitude of ways to keep you stylish yet comfortable. If it is cool enough for a sweater, consider one of our cute cardigans.

Not wearing a cap to a baseball game is like having ice cream without sprinkles. If you don’t have or want the cap of a specific team we recommend one of our hats. Keep the sun out of your eyes while still looking fresh.

Chicastic is takin’ you out to the ball game!

Back to School

Stores are already gearing up for back to school shopping. Items for the dorm, school supplies, and fall clothes are being displayed. Want to get your teenager or college bound child prepared for the cool weather? Then check out the scarves, hats, and bags available at Chicastic.

Infinity tube scarves are a warm option for the months ahead. They’re available in thick or thin knit versions or even with fringe. Try a vibrant teal or a light pink. Maybe a multicolor light and dark grey tube scarf would match your child’s style more. Oblong scarves work well for the autumn weather too and offer a lot of ways to wear them. For example, they can be wrapped around tightly for warmth, hung loosely for a cool style, or looped and pulled through for a simple chic look.

Don’t forget a warm hat to go with your scarf. A cotton two toned fisherman style hat offers a clean autumn look. A beanie hat with a leather strap comes in beautiful fall colors. Or try a knitted winter slouchy hat that comes in grey, off white, or black. If you have a gal that likes more structure, then try a wool bowler hat.

Another great back to school item is a fashionable backpack, tote, or satchel for their school supplies. Try this beige small backpack with a front flap or a snakeskin pattern glossy hobo handbag.

At Chicastic find all these fashionable items and more for your student.

What to Carry in Your Beach Tote

A day trip to the beach can be a bit demanding when it comes to packing. Make sure you have some of the essentials on hand in your beach tote before you head out for the day.

Going to the beach can be a bit of an ordeal. Most of the time, it’s the day’s main activity, meaning you’ll be there for most of a morning, afternoon or evening. So what are you going to bring? If you’re planning on going anywhere for an extended period of time, it’s always smart to pack appropriately. Especially a location like the beach, where there may not be items readily for purchase in the case of an emergency, be sure to at least keep the following items in your tote bag!

1. Bathing Suit or Change of Clothes. Whether you wear your bathing suit to the beach or need to change into one once you get there, make sure to pack it or the clothes you’ll need once you leave. You never know if you’ll need to change out of a wet suit or go somewhere after the beach so always be prepared by packing a basic outfit with you as well.

2. Coverup. This can be an alternative to bringing a change of clothes and is a bit more convenient. A suit coverup can help you transition between the beach and the boardwalk or anywhere else you may go after your day trip.

3. Towel. You don’t want to get caught at the beach without your towel! These serve more than one purpose, either as your seat on the sand and/or your method of drying off after taking a dip in the ocean.

4. Sunscreen. This is possibly one of the more important items to keep on you. Even if you’ve lathered up before arriving, it’s always good to reapply every half hour or hour, especially if you’ve gone swimming. In addition, a tube of SPF chapstick is a great thing to keep on hand as well. Your lips are just as likely to get sunburned as the rest of you.

5. Water. In a place so hot, it’s important to stay hydrated!

6. Snacks. Just as important as staying hydrated, it’s just as vital to make sure you’ve had enough to eat! Sitting in the sun can easily drain your energy and it’s good to make sure you’re properly nourished throughout the day.

7. Hat. In addition to sunscreen, a hat can help protect your scalp and face from any unwanted sun and potential sunburns. Many of us forget to protect our scalps and may find it painful to brush our hair the day after visiting the beach. These also come in handy once you’ve been sitting in the sun for a while and feel tired of squinting.

Remember, you aren’t limited to these items! Feel free to pack whatever else you think you may need like makeup essentials for basic touch ups, hair ties, books, magazines, tissues, or even accessories.
