Game Day Series: Orange Tee- Go Pokes!

Happy Orange Thursday, friends! This is the second post of the game day inspired series! The first outfit I posted was a cute dress option for an OU game, you can find it here. So, naturally on this beautiful college game day an orange look just seems right! This top comes off as a coral (ish) color in the photos but it’s truly orange. This look is laid back and comfortable. Perfect for tailgating and rooting on the Cowboys! Enjoy and go pokes!

Mumu Thatcher Tie Top

Hey friends! Happy Tuesday. Yesterday we celebrated Billy’s 27th birthday! I cannot believe we are so old. When I was a teenager, I thought I would have kids and a big house by 26. But now, I’m just trying to take things day by day. We’re extremely happy about where we are in life right now. We’ve both been employed at jobs we love for over a year. Billy works as a relationship banker at First United Bank and I’m a social worker at Norman Regional Hospital. We’re very happy with where our careers are. I’m under supervision for my clinical license and love my mentor/supervisor Whitney. We have a cute little home in Norman with our fur babes. Life is good. I couldn’t ask for anything more. We are so thankful for our health, our family and one another.

Billy is an easy guy to please. I took him to Saltgrass for dinner (his preference). We came home and he watched football on TV. Pretty much his idea of a perfect night. Good steak and football, who can blame the guy? I’ve linked the outfit I wore to our date down below. This blush/rose top is flowy perfection. I definitely recommend sizing once size down. It’s originally $140 and on sale for $98!

Cashmere Poncho

I know it’s hard to begin thinking of fall outfits considering it’s 90 degrees out, ha! But, I’m a believer that you can never be too prepared. Personally, I typically seem to find the best fall finds in July and August. If I find a good deal on a sweater or pair of boots, I snag them immediately because I know come October or November, they’ll be sold out. Growing up my mom only let me shop the current season. I know it’s because I got bored with clothes once the new wore off, so if I bought it to wear the next season, I probably wouldn’t like it anymore once that season came. But, as an adult, I’ve found that you find the best deals and styles before the season even begins. Most of the time, anyway. I think a big part of this, is because of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I bought so many cute things but haven’t been able to share them until now because so many things sell out so quickly. One of my favorite pieces, is this Halogen Cashmere Poncho. Even though it’s not on sale, I still consider it to be pretty affordable for cashmere. It’s perfectly oversized and cozy for cold weather. I can’t wait to wear this in fall.

Soft Bell Sleeve Top

Guys, bell sleeve tops are super hard for me to turn down lately! I think they’re so cute and fun. I wanted to link this one below before it sells out. It’s the perfect taupe color and so so soft. It can be worn on its own, but I think it would be really cute with a utility vest for fall. It’s a really good transitional piece, I definitely think it could be paired with jean or white shorts until it cools off enough for jeans. Speaking of jeans, these AG Jeans are my absolute favorite pair and I wear them constantly. They’re the perfect medium wash. I love that they’re so stretchy and comfortable. They are also linked below. Lastly, I highly recommend these booties! They have a very small heel, they’re perfect for walking long distances. Shoes of all kinds seem to give me blisters but these have been gentle on my feet so far! The taupe color is great for fall, they’re the perfect fall staple.

Game Day Series: Red and White Gingham

Hey guys! August means football season is finally here! I’m so excited. College football is one of my favorite things in the whole world. I attended OSU for a year before transferring to ECU.  After I received my bachelors at ECU, I graduated from OU with my Masters in Social Work. I’ve lived in Norman and Stillwater. Norman is definitely my favorite town of the two. But honestly, I love both towns, schools and teams. Billy and my family are diehard OU fans, so sometimes I have to root for OSU just in spite. I’ve even started to love the NFL, but mainly just because I love the Dallas Cowboys. Dez, Dan, and Dak? Need I say more?

One of my favorite things about college football is game day fun! There is this indescribable buzz in the air on game days in Norman. Even if you aren’t a football person, the energy is so contagious. Of course if you’re going to tailgate, you need the perfect outfit to rep your team! So, to spread some spirit and help you out if you’re looking for said outfit, I have decided to start a game day series where I’ll be sharing both orange and crimson looks throughout August and September!

I’m starting with this red gingham dress for you Sooner gals! I originally ordered this dress for 4th of July, but it wasn’t delivered until July 5th. Bummer, right? The more I thought about it, I knew it was versatile enough it could be used for a different purpose. Then it came to me! I think it would be perfect for an early season OU game! We will have warm temps well into September, so a dress will definitely make things cool and effortless. This little number is only $22. I’ve paired it with wedges but you could definitely wear it with sandals or converse to make it more comfortable for game day. Photos by Melanie Foster Photography.

Topshop Look Alike

I’m one of those girls who go crazy for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year. I literally purchase my whole fall wardrobe in just a few days. This Topshop sweater instantly caught my eye. But, apparently it caught everyone’s eye because it sold out super fast. Since then I’ve watched it come in and out of stock. Mostly, out of stock. I’ve finally found one that’s super similar and have linked it below!

Steve Madden Jole Dupe

Hi friends! A few weeks ago I shared my favorite summer sandals. They're a great Steve Madden nude slide sandal, find that post here. Well, as great as they are, I've found something even better! A more affordable dupe! These are seriously close to identical. The Steve Madden pair cost me $70, and the dupe pair are available at Target for $24.99! I've linked them below. They also come in black!
