Have you ever gotten rowdy in public? haha You all know I have, which is why when I saw a fun and free blogger event in partnership with the Tampa Bay Rowdies I definitely wanted to attend. At the end of July, Kahlea Nicole, founder of Gal Getaway, hosted a free Rowdies Soccer event for bloggers in the central Florida area. I rode from Orlando with two of my favorite Orlando Fashion Influencers: Alex of Alex Luciano and Nikki of Nikki A Hall aka The Fashionable Accountant to Al Lang Stadium in St. Pete to be a part of the fun festivities.
We enjoyed food and drinks with about 50 other influencers from the area. As a blogger, you can follow other bloggers for so long that you start to feel like you know them in real life even if you haven’t met before. Events like this are great because we actually do get to meet in person and no one minds posing for or taking a million different pics!
We were set up in a cute and cozy VIP Lounge area curtesy of Ashley Furniture HomeStore. The luxe outdoor couches and rugs made the it feel like we weren’t even in a sports arena as we watched the Rowdies play soccer that evening.
Honestly, while I’m not super into watching live sports, I have to say watching soccer was so much fun! It’s really fast paced so I feel like it’s a sport that my ever dwindling attention span can handle. It didn’t hurt having a bar right behind me and a nice comfy couch to sit on though!
If you’re in the Tampa/St. Pete area I definitely suggest hitting up a Rowdies game sometime!
Since I don’t own a lot of athletic attire, I decided to go with a white Free People dress, leopard slip-ons, and add a pop of green (Rowdies color) to my outfit with my lace bralette. This dress is PERFECT for curvy girls as it has snaps to re-enforce the buttons if they start to pull. It runs a little big. I typically wear a numerical size 12 in Free People clothing but picked up this dress in a size 10. Plus is has pockets *holla* <3
