80 Days of Shoes: BOGO

Football season is here, y’all! To celebrate, I’m showing you two looks today: two shoes, two teams, two ways to celebrate – all for the price of one. It’s a big day here on my little blog.

My explanations will be minimal – for one, the outfits pretty much speak for themselves. A) Go Tigers. B) Go Colts. But, really, if I say much more than that, this post will be too long, and none of you will read it. So, you’re welcome.

Why Clemson, you may ask? Because that’s where my brother went. Good enough reason as any, I think.

How do you celebrate your favorite teams with fashion?

Inspired Looks: Liz

Today’s inspired look is by my fun friend Liz.  I don’t generally post about gym attire – mostly because mine is high school cheerleader shorts and an NFL t-shirt almost exclusively.

But when Liz sent me this picture, I realized it was perfect for an inspired look: gym edition!  Where do I start?  First of all, she’s wearing a Clemson shirt.  That alone warrants a blog post.  I love Clemson’s purple and orange colors.  Such a weird combination, but so fun regardless.

Second, if you’re familiar with Pinterest at all, you can tell that Liz took a big boring t-shirt and made it into this cute, fitted tank.  I tried that once.  Unsurprisingly, I failed abysmally.  She did a great job.

Lastly, her shoes.  I’m not sure if they’re purple and orange or blue and orange.  For the purpose of this blog, I’m going to assume the former and that they perfectly match her tank (and water bottle!)  Regardless, I love fun colored sneakers – they bring spice to an otherwise pretty plain scene.

So there you have it – Liz’s fantastic gym look.  I’m now inspired to get some cute gym clothes myself, or at least to retry that Pinterest thing.  Here goes nothing…

Eye of the Tiger

I know I promised this post yesterday, but I was having blogger issues yesterday and traveling…but, good things come to those who wait!

As I promised, this post is all about Tigers…specifically Bulldog-eating Tigers!  Saturday was the first full-day of college football, and how lucky for me that I was supporting the best team of the week!  Now don’t get me wrong, I like UGA.  I’m an SEC girl, except for LSU and Texas A&M (sorry, Kitty Cat – get your QB under control!).  But, my brother goes to Clemson, so my blood loyalty trumps my artificial ones.

Clemson’s colors are orange and purple, as my shirt and jewelry demonstrate.  But, in the absence of purple shorts (which, now that I think about it, would be a great addition to my wardrobe), I veered off the beaten path and added my new $6 Forever 21 lime green ones.

Side note: these shorts are sized S/M/L.  How is that possible?  Does Forever 21 expect only three sizes of people to buy these particular shorts?  Or, did they get mislabeled like elastic gym shorts?  It’s odd to me. 

Of course, me being me, I still wore a jeweled bracelet and bow flip-flops, and in true Clemson sorority girl fashion, purple pearls.  Just because you watch with the guys doesn’t mean you have to look like them. 

Saturday’s game was awesome, but Thursday begins the real excitement….NFL kickoff!  Get ready for a lot of white and blue.  The Colts are back in business, and I still wear my Peyton jersey for Broncos games.  It’s gonna be a great season!

Prediction: Peyton gets his second ring this season, Colts win the AFC South.  Watch it.
