Saturday’s endeavors included Alpha Phi family day (aka a tailgate and baseball game at Alex Box Stadium) and some beautiful weather. The Tigers played Mississippi State in a series, which we unfortunately lost. I am a baseball fan, but hadn’t had the chance to go to any games this season, so I was super stoked to be able to go to one! Here’s my ootd deetsย (if you’re interested) :-)

I was going for a casual OOTD – complete with jean shorts, a tee and sneakers. I added my long black necklace and double wrapped it to be choker at the top to add some glam to the outfit. These leopard print sneakers that I borrowed from my friend Catherine added the perfect pop! I ended up loving the end result of this casual gameday look. I definitely plan to incorporateย sneakers into more of my looks because they were soo comfy!

Shop my look below! I couldn’t find the link to the tee I was wearing so I included another graphic tee I am absolutely obsessed with right now from Show me your MuMu.

Life Lately | November Edition

Hi my friends!! I am so sorry for the lack of posts last week, as I was off of school for a few days and literally the only thing I wanted to do was lie in bed all day. I’m trying to get on a regular posting schedule, so y’all can expect posts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from me for now on. I wanted to compile a few pictures and just check in with y’all about what’s been happening in my life lately!

Here’s a lil sneak peak of what I wore to the last LSU home game versus Texas A&M this weekend. The weather was super weird.. It was overcast but extremely hot during the day and once we got into the game, it was perfect. I styled a bronze sequin skirt with a chunky high low sweater, a long freshwater pearl necklace. black booties and my Ray Ban aviators- obvi. Maddie is wearing an adorable pair of black suede shorts with an oatmeal colored sweater and a grey necklace wrapped twice (so it’s a choker and long). She wore some beige F21 booties with it and topped things off with her black Ray Bans.

The game was so much fun, considering it was like a little high school reunion. My friend, Gavin came into town from the Big Apple to spend the week in LA for Thanksgiving. I also had my high school friends Madeline and Sophia come into town for the game. The Tigers were finally able to get their stuff together and pull out a W! Les Miles coached what we thought was his last game with LSU and it was very emotional. He got carried off the field by the players only to find out that his job was safe and he would be our coach next year. Yay! To that I say #LesIsMore!

Baton Rouge can get boring on non-home game weekends (aka LSU vs Ole Miss), so my gal pals and I decided to head out to a cute girls dinner, followed by a night on the town (at Tigerland, that is. Classy, right?). We all got dressed up super super cute and hit up our local Mexican restaurant for some rocking food. I am stealing some outfit inspo from these ladies next time I head out- they all looked too cute! I love having fun girls nights out every once in a while!

I was recently elected to my chapter’s executive council as Director of Finance. It’s a super heavy load and a huge responsibility being in charge of everyone’s money- but I’m up for the task. I wanted to get involved in my chapter and I thought that jumping right into exec would be a great way to do so. I am so excited for the upcoming year to grow as an Alpha Phi with this group of women. While you’re at it, check out my chapter’s Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook and website.

Who is excited for the Christmas Season? I know I am!!

Saturday down south: Casual Gameday Attire

Saturday-Down-South-1

If you live in the south and even if you don’t, I’m sure you’re well aware that we southern women love us some football. Not just the game of football, but the act of getting all dressed up for game day and going tailgating pre-game. This weekend I had my first experience of the act of tailgating at LSU. The Parade Grounds are flooded with tents, filled with swarms of people- all decked out in their purple, gold, black and white. Sorority girls wear their buttons and plasterย “Sorority name here loves the tigers!” stickers onto boys. It’s hard to describe, but if you’ve tailgated at an SEC school, you’ll certainly understand where I’m coming from when I say it is sheer madness.

Of course, there’s always a question of what to wear for game days. Some girls where dresses, while some opt for shorts and a simple shirt. This weekend, I decided to go more casual and sport some distressed denim shorts and a swing tank complete with some accessories and my Alpha Phi button (A Phi loves the tigers!!). The whole look was effortless and certainly was perfect for the extreme heat I experienced.

Pictured with me are my friends Maddie and Camille. The two of them dressed up a bit more and did dresses with boots.

The game was overall a flop. LSU literally played for five minutes and then we had a rain delay due to lightening and then everyone left due to the dark dark clouds. I had to walk all the way across campus in a terrential downpour with no umbrella or rain jacket. That was an experience I’ll definitely remember!!

I hope to continue this little Saturday Down South Series and give y’all some game day outfit ideas cause I know I’ll sure need some from y’all. Let me know what y’all think in the comments below. Did you enjoy this post? What would you wear to an LSU game?
