Have a Stylish Super Bowl

It’s Thursday, which means it’s practically the weekend. By now, everyone is gearing up for the Big Game on Sunday. I don’t personally have an allegiance to either team playing in the Super Bowl this Sunday, so I’m just looking to stay cute, comfy, and warm while enjoying some food, booze, and quality time with a few friends. I’d venture to say many other fashionistas out there share my sentiments. In case your man has roped you into hosting a party at your place, here are a few easy ways to have a stylish Super Bowl.

CUTE + COMFY + WARM

I joined Polyvore almost four years ago when it had only about 6 million monthly unique visitors. Now the social commerce site has nearly tripled its monthly unique visitors, and I’m thinking I need to get back on board. So, I decided to start with a set for the Super Bowl. The Broncos and Seahawks share a common team color: Navy. For all the fashionistas out there like me who aren’t rooting for a particular team, I’m suggesting you keep it neutral with navy to avoid any unnecessary comments or accusations from die hard football fellas. If you are a Broncos or Seahawks fan, add some orange or green to these outfits and you’ll be good to go!

If you’re looking for a serious crowd pleaser that’s both healthy and delicious, look no further. This is it! The first time my man and I made this recipe we knew it would become a staple of our party tray or lazy weekend afternoons.

Chile-Garlic Edamame
1 lb Frozen Edamame
1 T Olive Oil
2 Garlic Cloves, sliced
Red Pepper Flakes to taste (about 1/4 tsp)
Lime, for juicing
Coarse Sea Salt to taste

Heat olive oil, sliced garlic, and red pepper flakes in a skillet over medium heat for 1-2 min. Cook edamame in pods in salted boiling water until tender, about 5 min. Drain and add to skillet. Stir with splash of lime juice and salt to taste. Serve!
