I have a confession. I have been a victim of a fashion "Don't." *hangs head in shame* Back in 2008, I lived in Atlanta and one of my good friends and I went out to a sports bar down the street from the Georgia Dome to watch the SEC Championship game (she is NOT a football fan AT ALL so this was huge for her). It was Alabama and Florida squaring off and as you should know by now, I was not rooting for Bama, therefore, I was cheering for Florida (and would have cheered for whichever team was playing Bama). So, what did I wear? For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to wear a new crimson shirt dress with black knee boots. And what bag did I carry, you ask? I carried a crimson colored bag. What was I thinking?? As we walked around downtown Atlanta and once inside the sports bar, people kept yelling "Roll Tide" to me and I would have to explain that I was not a Bama fan and that I was in fact cheering for Florida (Florida came away with the win in case you don't remember). Lesson: don't wear the enemy's colors when they are playing.
Anyway, that story has nothing to do with this post, but I just thought of it and thought I would share. Wait. I guess it does have a little to do with this post, since Bama played my team, the Auburn Tigers, in the Iron Bowl on Saturday (a little stretch, but whatever). You guys know how much this game means to Alabamaians and if you don't, you need to watch Roll Tide/War Eagle on ESPN. To support my team, I turned to the pieces Meesh & Mia sent me and decided to wear the Auburn University ruffled polo in navy. As with the other pieces, the quality and fit of the polo are perfect. For you ladies who play golf, this would be a good piece to wear on the golf course.
I wore denim shorts on top of my navy leggings, added my brown suede boots, and threw on my navy pea coat to complete the look and headed out the door to meet one of my friends for a pre-Iron Bowl lunch (I didn't actually go to the game). I must admit — adding the silver cuff bracelet made me feel like Wonder Woman.
