It’s crazy to think that it’s nearly time for college football to kick into high gear. If we’re being honest, I’m not really into football. I don’t know what’s going on half the time, but Rob is sweet enough to fill me in on the details. That being said, I absolutely LOVE all the social events that come along with football season — tailgating in particular! Since we’re no longer in Texas we don’t get to experience the tailgating so much, but we have our own version in Chicago.
Today I’m teaming up with Shannon of High Waisted to show you how we wear our school colors. I first met Shannon my freshman year of high school, her twin sister lived across from me in the dorm and Shannon lived next door to my high school friends down at UT. Talk about a small world! When it comes time to get dressed for game, I reach for cute pieces in my school colors, not a t-shirt or jersey. Purple and burnt orange aren’t the easiest colors to come by, but we make it work!
Typically I pair purple and white with a cute and comfortable pair of sandals and a bright necklace that really has nothing to do with school colors, because who knows where you’ll end up post-game, right!?
