Win or lose, Cleveland always rocks!
Unfortunately, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost Game 5 of the NBA Finals. I will admit that I did shed a few tears, but then I reminded myself about the fact that our team won a championship last year and that they managed to make it to the NBA Finals three years in a row. Cleveland has grown and improved in the past few years, and it will continue to do so in the next years to come. No matter what happens, I will always love and support my city till the day I die! Speaking of which ...
I got this shirt at the Cleveland Cavaliers Game 4 outdoor fan fest/watch party outside the Q for $25. It was designed by a clothing brand that's very supportive of Cleveland called Fresh Brewed Tees. It's a great fit, it's so soft, and it truly represents my love for the city. There are New York City fashionistas and there are Los Angeles fashionistas, but I'm a straight up and proud Cleveland fashionista!
I know I say this a lot about most of my outfits, but this shirt really does go great with anything. Jeans, legging, skirts, you name it! I think this denim skirt from Target, my favorite All-Star Converse shoes, and glasses are great additions to the show and give off a sporty, chic vibe. That definitely screams Cleveland Fashionista!
I wore it the day after I purchased it, for a night out in Little Italy, CLE (aka the most authentic and charming neighborhood in Northeast Ohio) with my parents. Could it BE any more perfect? Not at all, especially when you have some soft serve chocolate gelato in one hand!
To those who underestimate Cleveland as a city, think again. First off, LeBron and his team won a championship after miraculously coming back from a 3-1 lead- which had never been done before in NBA history. That same year, the Indians made it to the World Series. Despite not winning, they still made it! We are also home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Lake Erie, Swenson's, West Side Market, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Little Italy (obviously), Playhouse Square aka the largest performing arts theatre district outside of New York, Blossom Music Center, and Cedar Point aka the Roller Coaster Capital of the World which is only an hour drive away. A long time ago we also used to have an actual SeaWorld park in the area which was neighbors across the pond from the now abandoned Geauga Lake, which there are rumors spreading around that it might become the new site a big movie studio. Safe to say, we have a lot of pretty cool things to be proud of!
You don't have to like Cleveland, sometimes even Clevelanders themselves don't like it from time to time (long winters are hard to take). But that doesn't mean we stop supporting it, and we'll always come back - because it's home. The same goes for all of Ohio, and it's called "the heart of it all" for a reason (it actually is shaped like a heart!) I will never be ashamed to call Cleveland my true home. When I finally get the chance to pursue this blog as a freelance career, I plan on staying in Cleveland as my hub - with the opportunity to travel the world time to time. Even if the dreams and future God has in store for me takes me somewhere else, I have no doubt that I will always be coming back to the city and state that I love. That truly says a lot if you ask me.
Cleveland against the world!
