Gameday Style: {Football Fever}

Swiftly Moving Days Dress and Red-y and Rarin' to Go Dress, both from ModCloth


Woooooooooooo Pig Sooie! Gracious y'all, I am SO ready to hear that blessed Hog call! Fall and college football could not come fast enough!

So it probably goes without saying that today's post is dedicated to all my girls in the South; my SEC conference sistahs (and my Texas girls, too!)

You see, down here below the Mason Dixon, we do gameday style a little differently than the rest of the country. (Fellow southerners, I'll need y'all to chime in here.) We firmly believe in dressing up for games and I personally love that tradition!

One of my cousins from up north was so perplexed when she came down for a visit a few years ago. She wondered why all the girls were wearing so much make-up, sporting heels and rocking hair poofs at a college football game, haha! I told her I couldn't explain it, that's just how it's been for years around these parts. Yes, it's probably a tad ridiculous, but we wouldn't have it any other way around here : )

...............................

Oh yeah, sidenote before we go any further, I had my bridal pics done yesterday and LOVED the few that the photog let me preview at the session site. I ended up going with "up" hair for the photos yesterday, simply because it had been raining all morning and the humidity was killer! I'm still wearing it down for the ceremony, but I ended up LOVING what my stylist did yesterday!! Here's a sneak peek!


................................

Anywho, back to football. So because I believe that gamedays are the perfect opportunity to show off one's style, I've scoured a few websites in search of some cute dresses for gamedays for my southern sistahs! Enjoy : )

For my Razorback girls, I chose both of these pretties in red!

Judith March Red Versatile Keyhole Dress and Casual Kate Wrap Front Knit Dress from Blue Door Boutique


Auburn beauties, holla! I've got the perfect dresses just for y'all!

Cecile Dress and Judith March Indonesian Wallpaper Cowl Neck Dress

Jaded Beauty Dress UGA and Wendy Gameday Dress


Tennessee orange has never looked so good! Check out these numbers, both from McCauley's!

Hotty Toddy! Emphasis on the 'hottie' part - these dresses are scorching!


 Judith March dress (link not found, but similar style here) and Get Fluffed Up Navy 3D Dress from Blue Door Boutique

Even though they're not in the SEC, we can't talk college football without including Texas! Texas ladies will be lurvely in these two orange numbers!

Caroline Romper and the Kara Dress, both from Tru Colors Apparel

Kentucky cuties, holla! Blue and white? Yes, please!

Front Romance Dress and Favorite View Dress, both from ModCloth

Amanda Dress and Dray Top, both from Tru Colors Apparel


Gator girls would look beautiful in either of these bright blue numbers!

I'm a big fan of SC and an even bigger fan of the styles below!

Geaux Tigers! Love some purple and gold!

Catie Dress and Ashley Dress, both from Tru Colors Apparel

Who will you be rooting for this fall? Are you an SEC girl or maybe another conference? Who's your favorite team?!

Be blessed, lovelies-

  4. You look so lovely in your bridal pics! I'm sure they must have all turned out amazing!

    I am totally with you when it comes to college football. It's game time, let's go!

    I'm a Gator fan that just moved to South Carolina. So I think this year I'll be saying Go Gators and Go Gamecocks (except when they play each other of course :)

  5. This was crazy to me when I went to my first SEC game. In high school and college (I went to a small private school) football games were T-shirts and jeans...but my first Razorback game, everyone was dolled up! I LOVED it! I think it makes game day so much more fun to see all the fashion!

    That fall (of my first SEC game) I bought some adorable red suede boots so I could rock me some Razorback red fashion at games!

  6. I live in Ohio, and nobody gets dressed up for college football games. I wish we did though - it sounds like fun!

  7. I went to Florida State so I'm a huge Seminole fan! My husband and I have season tickets so I have quite an extensive collection of garnet dresses :)

  12. Your hair and makeup looks stunning! I am sure the pictures are just beautiful!!

    I'll be sporting lots of Blue and White this season.... even though we all know Kentucky doesn't exactly have the best football team- ha! We're more basketball oriented :)

    Can't wait to see all the wedding posts- it's just right around the corner!

  13. I am so excited to eventually see wedding pictures. I know they will be GORGEOUS!

    It's so funny that you all dress up for football. I'm from WI and, while I don't get into college football, I'm a hard core NFL fan (Go Pack Go!). Our football attire is jeans, a jersey, and probably some crazy face paint and beads, light up necklaces, headbands, etc.

    Here's a post I did about being a die hard Packers fan and includes a picture of my friends and I all suited up for the Super Bowl :)

  16. I go to Wisconsin so we don't dress up for games (my Saturday outfit is red and white overalls =] ) but I lived down in Georgia for a few years and I remember thinking how lovely it was that everyone got so dolled up for games! Definitely a different atmosphere than up here in da nort'!

  23. Love this! My beloved BSU played Georgia a few years back and we traveled to the game. I couldn't understand why all the girls were SO dressed up for the games either. One thing is for sure, we stepped up our outfits for the next game! P.S. bridal updo-gorg!

  39. What a precious post! I almsot had a heart attack until I saw the Uk gear, going to get the lacey one!! TOO cute. Thanks girlie!! xoxo

  40. Look at you!!! Giving us all love! I adore the Mississippi State dresses and I might have to snag the Vandy one since it's Houndstooth after all.

    ROLL TIDE! I can't believe this Saturday is opening game. I'm so excited!!!

    As a East Coast girl I can attest to the fact that Southern Belle football fans are completely different than us East Coast and Northern girls... maybe it's the freezing temps or just the laid back life of the Northern Peeps but Southerners do have style and I love that the Belles flaunt it at every game.

    It takes some getting used to but I love the proper feel it gives. {besides who says a belle can't kick back a few brews and scream like a boy... she just does it in style}.

    Not to down my northern girls, I am after all one of them but I sort of dig this dressed up style. And it makes for great fashion watching at the game between plays!

    I have been meaning to post a whole blog about this topic so if it's OK I am going to link to this since you did so many SEC girls justice with it! ox
