For those of you reading this who don’t live in Chicago or don’t live with a hockey fan you probably don’t know that the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team won the Stanley Cup last week. This is a big deal and the whole city has been celebrating since then. Today is the Blackhawks celebratory parade and rally. Since I live about 1.5 miles from the Blackhawks hockey arena and work less than half a mile from the rally you can probably imagine that my commute this morning was filled with red and black Blackhawks gear. I’m not a hockey fan and probably only watched about 30 minutes total of the games but I didn’t want to be a party pooper. So I decided to figure out a way to wear a classy red and black outfit to the office. In fact, here’s another way you could wear a red and white polka dot shirt and still be Blackhawks appropriate!

I wish I could show you just how awe-inspiring (and, to be honest, a bit terrifying) it was to ride the train into work this morning and see Blackhawks red and black lining the streets. I took this picture from my office window but it pales in comparison to these from the Chicago Tribune since mine just looks like regular tourists and theirs show how packed the streets were.

Are you a sports fan? Do you wear outfits to reflect holidays or events?

EDITED TO ADD:  My coworker braved the crowds. This is what it looks like at 20 minutes after noon.
