God, sweet tea, and the SEC

Well, it’s a fall Saturday in Arkansas and that can only mean one thing…football. Razorback football to be exact. People here in Arkansas are crazy about their football and crazy about their Hogs! While we may be slightly delusional too optimistic, I think we have some of the best fans around! Currently, we have lost 14 (ahem, make that 15) straight conference games, but on Saturdays we still don our black, red, and white, sell out our stadiums, have parties where we cheer our hearts out, and get our hearts broken when we lose yet another game. Oh the hard life of being an Arkansas fan…

Okay, lets rewind a little bit here though, because before you can even think about the party, game, or tailgate you are going to attend, you’ve got to think about what in the world to wear! Fashion for football season is in a category of its own! For this game day, Anthony and I were going over to my parents house to call the hogs and eat some good food with my family. It was cold and drizzly, so I knew I wanted to be casual, comfortable, and warm! Here’s what I decided to wear for this particular game day look…

We are still number one in my heart! 

Sweater: Marshalls, similar here // Vest: Anthropologie // Pants: J Crew factory (you need these in your closet, trust me!) //  Boot Socks: Marshalls, but you can also buy them here // Boots: old, similar here and here // Necklace: Pretty Posh Boutique (you can order from their facebook page!) // Earrings: Target // Bracelets: Target, Similar

As you can probably tell, these pictures are pre-losing to Alabama by one point sadness…below is how I felt after the game.

I was depressed so I needed a good husband hug…

Despite the loss, we still ended up having a good Saturday and a good time being together! I know by next Saturday we will be heading out to the game with new found hope that maybe, just maybe, we can finally pull out a win!

For all you other girls who root for teams that are also red, I have added some items I think would be perfect to wear to upcoming games, especially as the weather gets cooler!

She Inside Red Cape Coat (want this!) // RiffRaff Red & White Sweater (love this necklace too!) // Savoir Faire Red Floppy Hat // Fab’rik Red Swing Dress // Windsor Store Red & Black Plaid Tunic (great with faux leather leggings here) // DSW Cowboy Boots // Shop Bella C Southern Belle Dress // Shop Elysian Aztec Red Shawl

I loved linking up with Laura from Louella Reese and Corbin from Classy South Blog  for today’s Game Day theme! If you aren’t already, make sure you go follow them, and link up with them the second Monday of every month!

Happy Monday!

XOXO,

Emily
