I had nothing to wear this weekend.. so I did what any normal person would do and stalked my favorite gameday boutique’s Instagram for outfits and had them put them on hold. (what? That’s not what normal people do?) Anyway, it rained and therefore all the time I spent on my hair was for nothing, because it became an immediate frizz ball when I stepped outside.

I loved the scalloped edges on the collar and the bottom of the dress. I’m also very glad I purchased the tights, because I was cold.

I’m in love with my new necklace too!!

My sister-in-law’s sister (did you follow that?) came down for the game and Tricia and I always have a good time. Doesn’t she look so cute?? I want her shirt. Hubs hates my denim jacket. He can be heard saying, “Yeah.. that’s my wife… over there… in the denim jacket.” Oh well. It helped keep me warm!

A-A turns 7 this week )say it ain’t so!!) and we had her birthday party this weekend. We didn’t do anything major because her present is going to the American Girl Doll store in Atlanta this week and she is super excited.

I always like to take a family pic on the day of a birthday party for whatever reason, so I like to wear something cute for that and I’ve had this outfit in my closet for several weeks waiting on the perfect opportunity.

Black and white and quilted leather is HUGE for fall and I couldn’t wait to try it out.

I love my Molly Suzanne stack.. seriously, it’s my Go To.

I was worried about how my butt would look in these tight pants (flash back to 8th grade when I tight pants as the new girl… not an experience I want to relive anytime soon.) But the hi-lo shirt covers that area nicely!

Patent leather pumps are a must!

I love the detail down the side!!

I think that loading the pictures to photobucket makes them turn me a tad kermit-y, but oh well.

Is it just me or does everyone have that friend who dresses you? I have a couple and over the next couple of weeks, I will feature them on here.

In case you haven’t met one of my best friends, Rebecca, here she is. I love this girl. She knows my closet better than I do and she always has to approve outfits before I wear them somewhere important. Even race outfits…

Isn’t she beautiful??

 photo Ingram_0012web_zpsc9e1384b.jpg

 

She has a major shoe obsession…She has a very classic style, but also very trendy. She refuses to let me dress like a hooker, so that’s always nice and she isn’t afraid to tell me when something looks terrible.

 photo Becca_zps1f8d67a0.jpg

Seriously.. I love her.

I always know I can text with a “I don’t know what to wear to work” and I will get a reply complete with jewelry suggestions.

Do you have a friend like that??

We ventured down to Tuscaloosa this weekend for our first tailgate of the season… I had a hard time deciding what to wear. Of course I wanted something new, but I got vetoed so I had to dig in my closet. It was going to be cooler at game time, and I didn’t want to be cold during the game, so I went with pants. Which was a big deal because the last time I wore pants to a game, we lost. But, ultimately, I went with it.

 photo photo3-1_zpse4e2edf1.jpg

I was going to wear boots, but it ended up being too hot for that.

Now… I know not everyone knows or gets our football obsession, but it’s the South, y’all and we don’t play around.

 photo photo1-3_zpsa4d7993c.jpg

This was probably the most fun tailgate we’ve had in a long time, even though we were missing some key peeps, we still rallied and partied on.

Cole and I bonded over… I’m not sure what, but it led to us swapping sunglasses and shoes. I think he should just give me his sunnies.

J and I before the game… don’t hate on his pink frog tog, it keeps the man cool and I don’t have to listen to him complain.

Hubs and I at the game..

Loved the sunset from the stadium…

It ended up being a good game.. for us, anyway. 25-0.

The after tailgate was fun… Mark and I kept photobombing people and they got us back..

I love my tailgating family!!

Hi! I’m back from the Caribbean.. it was fabulous, but I will catch you up on that later.

On the cruise, we had some formal nights and I wanted to show my LBD… it was $30 and from Target. I love how the cut is flattering to every body type. I accessorized it with a colorful clutch and a hot pink bracelet.

My Style Monday– GameDay Fashion


My Style Monday
It’s that time of year… Football season! Here’s the first round of “Gameday Fashion” around here…
20130901-130820.jpg 

I saw this dress several weeks ago and knew it had to come and live at my house. This is one of my very favorite clothing stores in Tuscaloosa, Ellie Crimson.

Doesn’t my brace look so fashionable? Don’t be jealous. I wore my Molly Suzanne stack and my Ellie Crimson necklace.

We started the day by meeting my parents to drop the girls off for a day at the zoo… had to snap a pic with my Dad!

We made it Atlanta by lunch and after a semi-uneventful MARTA ride, where I had a man give me to history of the MARTA, we set up shop at Taco Mac for a very long wait, but football was on, so, who cares?

When we stepped outside to head to the game, we were lambasted by a man asking if we would take a picture with his friend, who was a Hokie. He explained that they had done this for Michigan State and she had given a heel pop. He even showed me my competition. I informed him that, “Pssshh we were from the South and clearly we were better at everything than anyone from Michigan.” I may have also been a tad tipsy. I asked him if he was going to Tweet or Instagram it and he should tag me, he said, “Oh, I’m in my 40′s. I don’t do that stuff.” Umm.. okay.

I love a game inside the Georgia Dome… except actually having to get to the Dome and leave the Dome area. The seats weren’t too shabby…

 photo game_zpsc6688bb2.jpg

 

I wanted to get a pic with Hubs and he kept holding up his number 1 finger. That is one of my pet peeves and I kept slapping it down and everyone around us started laughing about it. The action shot is a new fav.

 photo no1_zps8b12df10.jpg

We booked it out of there to get the girls from Birmingham and head to Tuscaloosa to spend the night. We got up early Sunday morning to head to New Orleans to leave on our family cruise… I’m really excited about it! Wish us luck being trapped in a small room with the Reds.

I’ve got a bit of sad news, Lindsey isn’t going to be participating in My Style Monday as a host. If I’m being honest, she did all the work and I imagine she got tired of it. I’m hoping to continue on with it, but I’m going to need y’alls help! Spread the word and link up!! Please use the button in your posts too!

I hope you have a fabulous Monday!
