How To Create the Perfect Game Day Look (Hook ‘Em!)

It’s always around this time of year (August/Back to School) that I start getting so excited for fall.  Although the temperatures won’t really cool off here in Texas for a couple more months, I can’t help but find myself dreaming of cozy fall outfits, the pretty colors of leaves changing, a crisp chill in the air, and of course football season!  I don’t really follow any particular teams these days, but I do try to watch the Longhorns when I can because one of my most fond memories of college was attending every single UT home game at DKR stadium!  I have been to a few games since I graduated and hopefully Drew and I will be able to make it to one this year – they are always SO much fun.

At UT not only was going to the game important, but you had to dress the part!  I’m not sure how it’s done at other schools, but at UT the girls all wear either burnt orange or white dresses and cowboy boots… I don’t have any idea when that tradition started but getting dressed up for the games in more than just a plain tee-shirt was always so much fun!  Today I rounded up some ideas to created the perfect Game Day Look – I love adding a pop of burnt orange to a crisp white dress or vice-versa with a pop of white on a burnt orange dress like this one!

My formula for creating the perfect game day look no matter which team you are cheering for:  1) Start with a base (dress or top) in one of your team’s main colors; 2) Add pops of your team’s other colors through your accessories; (Kendra Scott has jewelry in just about every color under the rainbow!); 3) Wear comfy shoes (at UT this meant cowboy boots but lots of times I would also just wear sandals or sneakers) & 4) grab a cross-body to hold all of your essentials.  Also don’t forget to add in a few cute accessories….how cute are these Texas earrings?!  Would be so cute for any team in the Lone Star State.  Happy Shopping & Hook ‘Em!Game Day
