Sneak Peek  

Stylish sneakers have become a way of life, and these Free People Chapmin Double Take kicks from Sarasota’s T. Georgiano’s are a new take on a trend you probably already love. The hook-and-loop closures might make you recall the shoes of your childhood, but the suede elevates this look to adulthood. The chunky, espadrille-esque sole will give you a little height. Perfect for a doubleheader. $178, T. Georgiano’s Boutique, 1409-B First St., Sarasota, (941) 870-3727, 

Coffee With Team and Sugar  

Could anything be more Sarasota than a collaboration between the local cup manufacturer Tervis Tumbler and our spring training team? This 20-ounce tumbler embossed with the Orioles’ insignia will keep your coffee warm and your soda cold. More importantly, it’s microwave-, freezer- and dishwasher-safe, meaning there’s little chance of ruining your new favorite cup. $33, Dick’s Sporting Goods, 181 N. Cattlemen Road, Sarasota, (941) 296-7042, 

Under the Hood  

This subtle hooded fleece pullover, embroidered with the logo of the Baltimore Orioles, who play their home spring training dates in Sarasota, is for you. The players on the field will be able to spot you from a mile away with this getup. $81, Dick’s Sporting Goods, 181 N. Cattlemen Road, Sarasota, (941) 296-7042, 

Gotta Get Down on Friday  

Now that so many of us work from home, the phrase “casual Friday” may not mean all that much, but it was always more of a state of mind than an actual policy anyway. To capture the casual Friday look any day of the week, slip on this button-down from Brooks Brothers and head to the ballpark. The poplin fun stripe suggests an organized cacophony, with disparate patterns that seem to merge into one. $108, Brooks Brothers, The Mall at University Town Center, 140 University Town Center Drive, Suite 228, Sarasota, (941) 702-9110, 

Bag It Up  

Spring is a busy, busy time in Sarasota, as you’re scooting from the school pickup line over to the stadium and then heading to the beach or meeting friends for a late-night performance. With all that activity, you’ll need a functional and versatile bag. This Ilse Jacobsen tote from Molly’s Sarasota is reversible and boasts two beautiful colors. It’s also the perfect size to hold everything you might possibly need. $98, Molly’s Sarasota, 711 S. Osprey Ave., Sarasota, (941) 921-1221,

For All Seasons  

Spring usually means warm temperatures, but there are always those few days where the weather dips one last time before summer arrives. If you decide to go to the ballpark on one of those afternoons, you’ll want to sport this classic white zip-through from Fleet Feet. The fleece material holds in the warmth while the side slit pockets will store anything you need—including your freezing hands. $148, Fleet Feet Sarasota, 711 S. Osprey Ave., #1, Sarasota, (941) 894-3338,
