Inspiration + Shopping: College Game Day Style

This week has been nuts which accounts for the haphazard posting schedule. Drew (the one that can drive) has been out of town all week which has left me running around like a crazy person. Confession: yesterday I totally forgot where I was supposed to pick up my kid. Obviously I was late getting there. Truly it’s the story of my life.

Anyways, I know you all don’t care that much about that especially when a long weekend is on tap! Not only is it a {beyond wonderful} three-day weekend but it’s the kick-off of college football season. I’m pretty excited for Monday night when my Miami Hurricanes take on UofL here. I’m fully prepared for getting heckled but no matter what the outcome is, I’m just pumped to get to cheer them on in person. And by cheer them on, I mean get to do the “We got some Canes over here” cheer with people who understand it.

Moving on again, I know that no matter who you’re rooting for that you’re probably trying to hunt down some game day ‘fits in the right color which don’t necessarily involve sporting lots of logo apparel. So I’ve rounded up some inspiration in a variety of team colors to help you get your team spirit on in style.

I’ve also got a list of some of the big Labor Day sales in case you get the shopping itch while enjoying some time off. Either way, I hope you all have a bad ass, amazing, relaxing, fun long weekend.

And if you’re tailgaiting on Monday night, I’ll be the crazy girl running around in a Miami jersey (yes, that’s happening – clearly not taking my own advice. There’s no shame in my game).

p.s.  - send me your game day pics and I’ll post them!

 On to the sales… I’ll keep updating these throughout the weekend.

Inspiration: Red, White & Blue

Are you all as bummed as I am about the US loss in the World Cup yesterday?  That’s why I’m so slow to post today  – okay, not really but it sounds better than just trying to check a bunch of stuff off my to-do list.

Even though Team USA lost, it’s not time to pack up your patriotic gear just yet. Fourth of July weekend is full of bbq’s, get togethers with friends, firework viewing and nights out.  For the first time in a couple years, we won’t be hanging poolside for the holiday weekend so I’m mining my closet for red, white and blue to wear while we spend the weekend in New York. We’re heading up there for the long weekend to celebrate a friend’s wedding (can’t wait) but get the added bonus of seeing the Statue of Liberty and a few fireworks on the fourth.

I, for one, love a good red, white and blue ensemble. I’ll even throw in some flag gear from time to time. But if  sporting the stars and stripes aren’t really your thing, it’s super easy to get in the spirit with stuff already in your closet. Image: Happily Grey

Inspiration + Shopping: Black Tie Affair

When it comes to traveling, I’m a really bad packer. I over pack but then when I get where I’m going, I feel like I have nothing to wear. This realization has made me ever-so-anxious to pack up in a couple weeks and head to New York for a friends wedding. Add to it, the wedding is Black Tie (technically it’s “black tie optional” but you know everyone is going black tie).

Since I don’t attend many black tie weddings and because I’m still not quite fitting into the dresses in my closet, I’m on the hunt for something to wear. I’m hoping to find something and absolutely fall in love with it so I don’t get that last minute, “I hate this” or “This doesn’t look right” feeling right before walking out the door. Instead I’m hoping for the totally confident, I love this dress so I know everyone else will feeling that is sure to make any night start off on the right note.

To nail that feeling, I’ve combed through Pinterest for some inspiration and have begun to narrow down some dress options.

Since it’s a summer black tie wedding, I’m tempted to throw in some color and print but more than likely I’ll settle on something more subtle (and slimming!). I’m thinking of giving the Alice + Olivia bow number in the middle a try (especially since it’s on sale) but can’t quite decide. We’ll see when it gets here if it provides the aforementioned perfect feeling that I’m looking for.
