Don't fret, my pet.

There was only one shirt that could do for the day of game seven of the NBA finals. Given the events of the last game, in which my Celtics suffered a demoralizing loss, I was a ball of anxiety about the game. Whenever I am feeling particularly stressed, I always reach for this shirt. I can’t look in the mirror and see Miss Marc’s adorable message of “Don’t fret my pet” without smiling, and it’s a good reminder for someone like me, who can usually find something to stress about. What can I say? I’m an anxious person!

While this shirt is mostly greenish, I was a little worried about the presence of purple as it is the color of the enemy (the Lakers). Truth be told, I like to throw my comfy purple cardigan on over this shirt, but as soon as I did, I gasped at the sight! Purple over green? Is that symbolic of a Celtics loss? I just couldn’t risk it and had to quickly find a replacement. I grabbed this jersey blazer without much thought and was rather pleased that I did. First of all, it feels like a sweatshirt! The attached vest gives it that signature Marc quirkiness that I adore and I love that with it buttoned, it looks like Miss Marc is peering out over it.

The rest of the outfit was made up of many of my go to’s: boyfriend jeans, bangles, a few rings piled up, and pointy toed black heels. I felt comfortable and confident all day and maybe even a little feisty with anticipation.

Sadly, game seven didn’t work out as well for the Celtics as this outfit did for me…but, I will remind myself of the wise words of Miss Marc: don’t fret.

'Just found your great blog last week and am coming out of lurkerdom to say that is one sweet ensemble! I hope your team brings it, and thus gives you no further reason to fret.

Also, the t-shirt/blazer combo is absolutely adorable.

It was a sad loss, but you can be Celtics fret-free for about 4 months :)

And, of course, I love the outfit.

This post seriously has me laughing! I'm so glad you're a celtics supporter (I'm a Boston gal myself) and I am loving the T-shirt! How cute! I have always loved the look of a T-shirt with a blazer over it - I think I started liking the look from Lorelai Gilmore from the Gilmore girls - I always dug her eclectic style (please don't judge my awful taste in TV!).
