August 23, Spirit Wear

I just got home from dropping my son off for his freshman year of college, (sniff!) so now I feel like I can officially wear TCU spirit wear!

The last night I was in Fort Worth a group of Washington parents got together to go out for dinner after moving the kids in all day. This is not actually what I wore, but I thought I’d show it as a cute example of how to wear spirit wear.

In the outfit on the left the baggy grey pants are too long and I don’t care for the 2 shades of grey. My Birkenstocks, while comfy, aren’t adding any style to the look. On the right, I have replaced the baggy pants with my distressed skinny white cropped jeans. I’ve tucked the front of my t shirt in and added a belt for polish. My neutral sandals with a block heel add some height and style to this otherwise super casual look.

And what’s that, you ask, on my shirt? Why it’s a Hornfrog! Not sure I’ll ever get used to saying ‘go Hornfrogs’, but I’ll try! 🙂

March 23, March Madness

I don’t know about your family, but my family is NUTS about March Madness. Even my daughter, who cares nothing about sports, is super into it! Maybe it’s because I am a Jayhawk- and basketball is in our blood?!

It’s fun to wear a tee shirt or sweatshirt that supports your team, but there is a stylish way to do it- and a not so stylish way. Take my look on the left. The sweatshirt is way to big (it’s my hubby’s) and my jeans are all wrong.

So, to fix my outfit I have replaced the weird jeans with these cute distressed ones. I like the skinny cut- it’s much more flattering. I then replaced the oversized sweatshirt with a cute scoop neck KU shirt. For my feet, I am actually wearing my Birkenstocks! Oh yeah! I started wearing Birks in college (back in the early 90’s) and I have loved them ever since. They aren’t the most stylish shoe- but they are making a comeback. They are incredibly comfortable- and paired with the right outfit- can actually be cute.

Rock Chalk!
