David Beckham training with Arsenal
Even while the hype around Euro 2012 was beginning to peak, Lionel Messi still managed to steal the show. In a “friendly” against Brazil in front of over 82,000 outside of New York City, Messi topped off an astounding season with a hat-trick against Argentina’s rivals. Argentina won 4-3 in a thrilling match. While often facing criticism for not playing like he does with Barcelona, Messi scored the first hat-trick for an Argentine playing against Brazil since Jose Sanfilippo in 1959. He ends his 2011/12 season with 82 goals for club and country, with his third and final goal of the day being particularly spectacular. There really are no words to describe this man at the moment; just watch and enjoy.
Shades of Blue
Blue happens to be my favorite color so I’m naturally drawn to it when picking out my clothes. For this outfit I stuck with blue but used different shades so it wouldn’t look too repetitive. The distressing and wash of the denim jacket, paired with the lighter patterned shirt, and the darker solid chinos help create enough of a variation to break up the blue and keep things interesting. And of course, the pop of color here comes from the green Vans!
Happy Monday everyone, and hope you’re all staying dry in Jersey City/NYC!
