August 5, 2011

That’s right ladies and gentlemen…start your engines, no it’s not Nascar time, but it’s 30 days to go until it’s football time in Tennessee! If you’ve read my blog for any period of time, you are well aware of my love for all things SEC football, with my heart belonging loyally to the Tennessee Vols. Born and bred from a little wee one to always sport my orange, I’m forever on the lookout for game day fashionables. Here are some of my favorite new finds for us Rocky Top gals 😉

Like I mentioned last week, now is your chance to win another fun giveaway brought to you by the fabulous Dress for the Game.

How do you enter? It’s easy–just drop me a comment telling what you’re favorite attire is for cheering on your favorite team each and every week and/or what you do to celebrate the start of college football. The giveaway will end next Friday!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend…this lady is venturing to Knoxville with the hubby to take in wedding fun, spend some quality time with best friend Bev, and catch-up with Jeff’s mom. See you on Monday 😉
  1. Cute scarf. I like to sport game day colors, nothing too over the top. 🙂 Love your picks.

  2. Jennie says:

    I love my Texas Tech Red Raiders! So anything black & red. A cute red raider dress, cowgirl boots, and of course red finger nails. 🙂

  3. Lu says:

    Love the scarf! I am super excited about football season starting & so excited to tailgate at the first home NC State game! My all time fav thing to wear at games won't be needed for a few months…my red pea coat!

  4. Kate says:

    I go all out and look like my team colors threw up on me 🙂

  5. I cannot wait! I am a huge SEC football fan as well – GO GATORS! I can't wait to tailgate in my pretty game day dresses and other cute attire! My boyfriend is a high school football coach, so once football season is here – its nothing but football, football, football in this house! SO EXCITED!!

    By the way, I adore your blog and your wedding details that we've seen were gorgeous. I can't wait to see all the pictures!! 🙂

  6. [Ashley] says:

    I can't wait! I have my team's season schedule posted at work and my countdown is on too! I wear anything from a team tee to jeans and a great shirt (red, black or white!). Sometimes I'll wear a great jersey knit dress in the early summer because of the heat. Always remember comfy shoes!

  7. Favorite game day attire – cowboy boots! Down here in the big 12 we love game days but tailgating is the real tradition! – sarah

  8. Caitlin says:

    Can't wait for football season to start! And even though I sport red and blue on the weekends, I was taught to love all things SEC and I must say that you wear the orange really well! Cute finds!

  9. Holly says:

    I watch in so many ways! We live in Memphis so go to Tiger Football games sometimes, but are from Ohio so watch Ohio State on tv! What a fun give away!

  10. Rachel says:

    I love a cute dress and my vintage cowboy boots. It always seems to be the perfect thing for fall games!

  11. Always a dress and cowboy boots!!

  12. Ashlee says:

    Raised a Vol fan myself, I kept orange in the blood when I went to Clemson University. Although, I still sport the "Tennessee Orange" as my brother is a UT grad.

    My favorite gameday outfit? Something simple, but cute. Jeans and and fabulous orange top. Although light weight dresses are a must here in South Carolina for those hot September games. I'm excited to break in my new Orange and Platium Jack Rogers this year!

    Orange is also a must for Fridays work attire to keep up the Solid Orange tradition for Clemson alums.

  13. Hey girl! I am a new reader of your blog and it is already one of my favorites! Raised to cheer for the KY Wildcats in basketball but chose to cheer for the GA Bulldogs in football (that is where I did my residency). Either way I am, like you, a SEC girl!

    I love to wear fun dresses and Jack Rogers to games when it is still warm and then transition to scarves and cowboots as the weather cools down! I now live in Virginia and am surrounded by ACC schools so I host "game watching" parties so those of us that love the SEC can get our fix!

    Have fun in Knoxville this weekend!

  14. LOVE this! Heather is the best! Love all her dresses! You know an Auburn girl needs this scarf though! 🙂

  15. Ashley says:

    Oooolala! I would LOVE to win this scarf! 🙂 My favorite game day attire is probably a jersey for the team I am rooting for!! I like to go with the classic team sportswear!

  16. Jessie says:

    What a fantastic giveaway! LOVE the scarf. As an adopted Penn State fan (fiance went there and my school doesn't have much in the "good football team" department), I am so ready and excited for this year to start! We love hanging out with friends to watch or going to Penn State bars in the area. Hoping to get to my first home PSU game sometime this season (my first game, we went down to Tuscaloosa).

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  17. Nicole-Lynn says:

    I'm a FSU fan, and every year I'm all decked out in garnet and gold!

  18. Cait says:

    gorgeous scarf!

  19. My favorite attire is a cute dress in school colors and my cowboy boots or jacks 🙂

  20. I am a Virginia Tech Hokie and love my women's cut jersey.

  21. I am no Tennessee fan, but Oklahoma State is also orange! I'm loving the orange jcrew shirt! – Alyssa

  22. Tiffany says:

    I'm just a different shade of orange…Texas Longhorn burnt orange. 🙂 I love white pants as long as I can get away with them with a fun orange top! Bring on football season!!

  23. As a Penn State student, you have to be prepared for either really HOT or really chilly weather! I like to sport a cute Nittany Lions tattoo on my cheek regardless 🙂 I try to bring the south to the north and love to dress to impress for games, a cute blue and white polka dot dress always does the trick for tailgate and then time in the student section!

  24. MJW says:

    Wearing a Jersey 🙂

  25. Collins says:

    I'm a Clemson Tiger so anything orange! Orange scarves….my favorite cowboy boots. Ah, I am SO ready!

  26. Julia says:

    I love wearing my bright orange Express wool sweater and my knee high brown riding boots!!!

  27. Lindsey says:

    I love wearing my University of Washington purple husky jersey along with purple and gold beads, a face tattoo, and my Husky sweat bands on my wrists. Sometimes I'll throw in some purple nail polish too. Go Dawgs!!!

  28. Yay, football season has finally arrived!!! I'm a jeans and orange shirt girl, whose always impressed with those girls who can make orange look good and fashionable! The scarf is so cute!

  29. L.Caroline says:

    College football season is my favorite time of year! I'm SO ready to cheer on the Commodores! My fiance is a diehard alumni and I love any excuse to throw a party- we are the perfect tailgating team. Every home game we are in the parking lot bright and early with lots of yummy food and great friends. I am usually a dress and boots or jeans and cardigan girl- a scarf would be the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe.

  30. I have to admit I'm not a huge football fan, but I do LOVE baseball! I bled orange for my SF Giants. I have gone to a game (at least once) every season since their new park opened 11 years ago. I love sporting Black (sure a flattering color) and orange (which I can wear well) for EVERY game we go to PLUS it's always on our tv when a game is on. A new scarf would be a bonus on those cold game nights by the bay.

  31. Jessica says:

    As an Ole Miss fan, this navy scarf would be perfect for the Grove! I love my Rebels! Hotty Toddy!

  32. Even though I only went to OU for a year.. it's still the team I cheer for when it's college football season.

    And. I. Can't. Wait.

  33. Sarah Beth says:

    I'm definitely a Razorback through and through, but always cheer on fellow SEC teams when we're not playing! I love wearing those cute little game stickers on my cheek for every game! And of course, you have to sport that Razorback red! Woo Pig Sooie 🙂

  34. Go Big Orange! We are big Vol fans at my house. I usually wear an orange top and shorts or jeans to the games. My fave is an orange sweater, jeans, and boots. We will be heading to Knoxville for as many games as possible!!

  35. Kristin says:

    Love it!! Now, if only I could find all of these in Razorback Red… Ha!

  36. I love the new make over… looks fabulous!! I will have to change the name of your blog on my page 🙂 I think my new favorite cheering attire would be a scarf – the San Francisco games can get cold!

  37. Heather says:

    Ready for some football! Already ordered my Dallas shirts!

  38. Cute bows/headbands and football jerseys are the way to go for football games! Love this season!

    Following you on GFC as Ashley Brooke!

  39. Mariah says:

    ORANGE everything! Go VOLS!!

  40. Samantha says:

    What's not to love about some college football?! As a North Carolina girl, I must say that ACC football rules my house. Love wearing jeans, cute top, and boots! 🙂

  41. Tiffany says:

    Oh my gosh, LOVE college football! I'm an Oklahoma State girl–so it's orange all the day! And not just on game day, but I always wear ornage on the Friday before agame. I'm an attorney, so it take some work to come up with a season's worth of orange work outfits! 🙂


  42. LOVE football season! Scarves are the easist way to accesorize for game day.

    I go to ECU in North Carolina so of course I'm wearing purple pulling on the Pirates! I like to wear a purple dress and cowgirl boots and tailgate with the family. So much fun!

  43. I love college football. I would wear a really cute red shirt to cheer on my raiders.

  44. Great giveaway! I had no idea how hard it is to dress for football games! I have a personalized ribbon business….I can make ribbon for you in your team colours for your ponytails, wine glasses etc :O) http://www.Royal-Ribbons.com Thanks bunches!

  45. Brandy says:

    My husband and I and our four kids all pull out the purple and gold, head to toe LSU! We have our own "kick-off" party every year and there is purple and gold everywhere. SEC all the way!

  46. Amanda says:

    Hey! I'm def not an SEC kinda gal, BUT I love when you do these football clothes picks. I have season tickets at Illinois and we are ORANGE and blue! I purchased a few of the things you picked out last year that were orange, and by looking at it I'm sure I'll be doing the same this year! LOVE that you do this!

  47. Day Old News says:

    LOVE that first dress from Lulu's. A great way to wear a challenging color!

  48. Miss Chelsea says:

    My college didn't have a football team (gasp I know) but I love NFL football, I usually wear a jersey to cheer on my Colts but I love the idea of wearing Blue/white 'normal' girly clothes instead!!

  49. I like to accent with jewelry!

  50. I'm with you – SO VERY READY for some college football (go Red Raiders…. Cason and I both are Texas Tech alumns!).

    My game day accessory of choice is definitely a scarf! I love that one from Anthro, by the way!

  51. Ashton says:

    My blood is garnet & black! I wear my colors on Saturday even if I am not attending the game. When I am at a game, my attire is not complete until I have my cheek tattoo on.

    I will be launching a new blog on Monday that will be dedicated to Gameday attire, tailgating, recipes, mini football lessons and the teams/towns of the SEC & ACC. I would love to have you over to guest blog about Knoxville.

    thebellesofsaturday.blogspot.com There is nothing there right now, but will be up and running on Monday.
