What We Wore-Football Edition

We’re taking another break from our regularly scheduled programming.  🙂  I’m changing it up!!  To be honest, I didn’t remember to take ANY pictures of “What I Wore” this week.  

In honor of football season, I thought it’d be fun to share a few “What’d I’d Wear” ideas IF I were cheering for a certain team.  It totally made sense in my head, but when I started typing that out I realized it was SUPER confusing!!  haha!  Bear with me!

Since I live in Texas and most of the big Texas schools are part of the Big 12, I thought I’d start with that conference.  I’m sharing five colleges today and “What I’d Wear” if I had plans to be standing (and screaming) in their endzones this weekend!  Check out my game-day gear!

My first stop is in Norman, Oklahoma.  As gorgeous as this picture is, I hope my seats are a little closer.  🙂  haha!  If I was going to be cheering on the Sooners this weekend, this is probably what I’d be wearing…

The PERFECT top for some OU football!! 

If the weather is a little cool and crisp, then I’d pair the top with these destroyed Vigoss skinnies.  (I have these and LOVE them!)

If it’s going to be hot in Norman, then I’d stick to my beloved Gap denim shorts.  They’re on sale right now.  TONS of shorts are AND now is the time to use your Gap Cash!

And…I’m loving these new metallic burlap ballet Toms flats.
What do you think??  Who wants to cheer on the Sooners with me??  🙂

Next stop on my football road trip is Austin, Texas!  I’m sure Austin in September is going to be HOT, but this is my world…so we’re going to be pretend it’s a little chilly.  Ok??

Do you guys remember THIS VEST??  It was all over Pinterest last year and is now at J.Crew Factory!!  I have been drooling over it!!

I’d pair the vest with a denim shirt.  Just fyi…Longhorn fans…orange is not a popular color this season!  I searched and searched!!  I found the perfect pants to wear to the game!

Hello??  Texas fans??  You need these pants!!  

And…a cute pair of black booties to top off the outfit!

On to Iowa State, here I come….looking good in maroon!!  Go Cyclones!

It has to be cold in Iowa, right??  LOVE this top!!

Lacey top paired with skinny cords??  Yes, I will!

I’d roll up my cords and slap on these booties!!  And…I’d be ready to cheer on those Cyclones!

Any Jayhawk fans in the house??  Love the royal blue and red combo!!

Who am I kidding??  Is a maxi dress super ideal at a football game?  NO!  But…this dress is under $25!  STEAL!  (Other colors too)  So, I’d wear it, smile the whole time (because my dress was under $25) and scream loud for those Jayhawks!!  

This picture looks horrible!!  Sorry!  The Rayne Kendra Scott necklace in Bright Red would look FABULOUS with that blue dress!!  (If you sign up for Kendra Scott’s emails, you’ll receive a 15% off code.)

And…a cute and simple pair of sandals would complete my look!!

Last but not least…I’d end my trip right back here in Ft. Worth cheering on the Frogs!

I could totally get behind some Horned Frog Football sportin’ this purple lacey top.  Couldn’t you?

Again, if the weather was cool and crisp…I’d wear the top with my favorite destroyed skinnies.

Or…I’d wear them with my beloved Gap denim shorts.  

I’d complete my TCU look with these leopard flats (for a little added sass).  🙂

Hope you guys had fun!!  Clearly, no matter what team you’ll be cheering for this weekend we can agree on one thing…we’ll be looking good!  Hope your team wins on Saturday or Friday night or whenever they play!!  🙂

I’m linking up today with  The Pleated Poppy for WIWWGet Your Pretty On, and Because Shanna Said So.

    Bethany…yes, I'd say they're true to size. After washing and drying all summer…they might have shrunk a bit OR I gained a little weight. 🙂
