Football Fashion

Well, geez. Yesterday was a tough day for a lot of football fashionistas, wasn't it?
Most of you know I'm a University of Alabama graduate and a lifelong Crimson Tide fan. No, I'm not exaggerating.:
That's right. Rockin' the Bama fashion since 1983.
Now, I know I'm not the only blogger who also loves her football. Kristin at BonBon Rose Girls is a Florida fan, Josie at With a Wink and a Smile goes to Notre Dame and cheers on the Fighting Irish, Caitie at Candyfloss & Persie pulls for Oregon, Kayla at Ramblings of A Small Town Girl is a Texas girl, and Elle at Elle Sees roots for Georgia. Now in Tuscaloosa, football fashion means lots of crimson, white, and houndstooth. Walking around on game days and seeing what everyone is wearing is one of my favorite things to do. Bama girls (and guys!) take the fashion very seriously and I love it. August, our dog, has his own personalized jersey, as well as an Alabama sweater, plus his houndstooth collar and leash for football season. Yeah - it even extends to the pets!

What team do you root for and what's the football fashion like? I'm curious!

Thanks for the mention. It's a rough rough day here in my house. I'm still sportin' my number 7 jersey with pride but I don't think I'll be wearing it to brunch this morning though. I won't say congrats to your team but... well ya know...

I LOVE football so this is an exciting season for me! I tend to watch the games on the t.v. however, so no fun fashion looks for me

Well, I'm from India where football isn't huge so this by no means my area of expertise!

I feel out of the loop that I'm not into football haha, but I do like watching the commercials during the Superbowl :P

Hahah, how fun!
I'm not much of a football fan though, but I do make sure I watch the superbowl ;) Sometimes I'll glance at the games though if people are watching

Being a Canadian currently living in the UK, I sort of miss football! Especially since football here means something totally different... hehe
Lovely blog girl!

Ughhh Pitt football was a disater this week too...so much for being ranked :/

Elle Sees said...

You weren't kidding about being a Bama fan! Have u seen the youtube of the kid misbehaving & his parents tell him they're gonna make him go to the Auburn store? He starts crying!
I taught one of the former AL players, Marlon Davis.
My poor Dawgs have let me down this year!
Gotta love how dressy the girls get down her for a game! I'm a shirt & jeans one, myself.

haha aw, you are super cute in your crimson tide! I adore it and I adore the football fashion culture as well. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I have never had a reason to like any team who is the "Crimson Tide" in fact... I dislike them so much that I often call them the "Periods" because I'm pretty sure that's what the name breaks down to. :) Don't hate me! haha, I like the Broncos (nfl) and the Ducks (college) since I went to U of O. I do always like red as a team color though, I have always wished I had a reason to wear red! (I like Nebraska so there's that). But basically... I hate the Raiders more.than.anything. okay, I'm done :) Go Broncos!

Cute pix. I am not a football fan at all.

Stephanie said...

SMU football. We may not win a lot, but the fashion alone makes it fun. Lots of red, sundresses, and pearls.

jemina said...

Hey babe, thanks for sharing those baby pics, you look so cute :)). I could imagine that I would follow the locale football team if I were to live in the States :)). Wishing you a beautiful day, LOVE, Jemina, xoxo

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

I'll admit I'm not a huge football fan but there are other sports I follow. Love the baby pic!

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Well I went to a small private southern school (Elon) so the fashion there was unfortunately Lilly pulitizer all the time. Now, I'm not trying to hate on Lilly (not my fav, but looks nice on others) but it is not football wear!! I am a Virginia Tech girl all the way and that means being decked out in maroon and orange! Not my colors at all, but you do what you gotta do for your team!! Typically, fashion at VT is low key and understated, but still nice. You either wear your orange shirt or your maroon shirt (unless it is a white out game) with jeans or a jean skirt depending on your style.

Aww, those photos are so cute!!
To be honest, I actually don't watch football. I'm lame, I know. Lol. But I don't know the first thing about it or any sports for that matter...

Ashley said...

Ohmygosh, that is too cute that even your dog has a jersey! Aww I wanna see a picture! Don't hate me, but I'm not much of a football girl - I went to a tiny little college in Ohio, so pretty much everybody I knew rooted for Ohio State, so if I had to pick a team it would be them. But I'm more of a basketball girl :)
