Hello dears! I wanted to first say that if you’ve tried to leave a comment in the past but haven’t been able to, you should be able to now! I am still figuring out Blogger & finally realized there was a setting disabled for anyone to comment. I would love for you to leave me a comment now that it works!!! Now onto my post of the day…
“Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed” …an Elle Woods quote I lived by until I started my college years at UT Knoxville. Slowly I started incorporating one of the most unflattering colors you can imagine (sorry Vols fans, but orange can be hard to wear) into my closet. The more items I added the more I started to kind of actually LIKE orange. But of course it will never be the new pink….
With another UT game this weekend, I thought I would do a post to highlight some of my UT fashions throughout my years at UT. This year is a GREAT year to be a Vols fan in the fashion department…orange is EVERYWHERE in stores and I think will be a huge color this fall in general.
When I started UT I would just buy a few random orange pieces here and there. The key to dressing in a color that isn’t the most flattering is finding the shade that suits you best no matter your school colors. While I know UT’s bright orange is a bit “gaudy” (in the words of Sandra Bullock’s character in The Blind Side), it doesn’t mean you HAVE to exactly stick to that shade. Maybe some diehard fans would disagree, but from the point of view of a fashion-obsessed girl, I always tried to go with shades of orange that flattered my skin tone, even if sometimes they were a bit more of a “burnt” orange than a true UT orange. Wear what looks best on you!!!!
I don’t think I ever wore the exact same outfit twice to a game just because I would mix and match the same pieces. The key to looking cute for football games is to change it up…accessories are EVERYTHING…and be creative!
So in no particular order, some of my favorite UT outfits:
I’ll start with dresses…
Blue jean shorts: Forever 21
Cowgirl boots: Durango
And here are some really cute orange items in stores right now….
|LOVE this orange purse I saw on Stein Mart's website today! Only $39.99 but looks like great quality. Love the chain strap, buckle and zipper. Find it here:|
|Vince Camuto Bracelet from Macy's. Would look great with a stack of other gold bangles.|
