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.
