Win Your Bracket and Look Good Doing It

First of all, this is not the subject of this post, but The Hunger Games movie was sooo good. Besides the expected fact that they had to cut it down into a 2 hour theatrical performance, it was seriously really great. They captured every image while reading the books so perfectly, and the young actors and actresses were top notch. I especially enjoyed the fact that when a Twilight preview came on before the movie, the hardcore Hunger Games fans laughed. Yep, I definitely was were I belonged 🙂

So, I have a fashion dilemma, and as usual, decided to research the subject on the Internet, but came up short (no pun intended for those of you who know me). The issue is my team is still in the NCAA Tournament (GO CATS!), but what do you wear when you’re going to a restaurant or bar to cheer on your team?

As I’m sure you’ve figured out by now, I’m not really a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl. Tailgating during football season is a bit easier – it’s the South, so many girls are dressed in super cute skirts, dresses, etc and they don’t look out of place; until November, that is. Even then, you sport that blue and white with a classy shirt, cute scarf, peacoat, etc. No t-shirts here.

But basketball season is a different animal. Hanging out in a low-key bar is a little different than hanging out at Commonwealth Stadium. Plus, we’re grown ups now. So, what is a post-grad to do? As usual, I’m here to answer that.

  • Option 1: vintage tee, cardigan, cropped pants, ballet flats: This is a casual approach, but will not leave you feeling frumpy in the slightest. Accessorize with some pearls and oversized handbag.
  • Option 2: V-neck (in school colors), jeans, lightweight scarf, blazer depending on weather, and Sperrys or boots: Again, this is really casual, but the scarf adds a bit of class.
  • Option 3: Button down shirt (in school colors), jeans or shorts, Sperrys, boots or ballet flats: I love this option because in really any situation, it works!
  • Option 4: Casual dress; or skirt with white tee: A really casual dress may work if you’re going to be outside or to a fancier destination than the neighborhood bar. Pairing a high-waisted skirt with a t-shirt dresses it down quite a bit. Add boots!


Whatever you wear, have a smile on your face, cheer your lungs out, and HAVE FUN!
