Without a doubt, the seasonal transition from summer to fall is one of my favorite times of the year. The reprieve from scorching summer temps. The introduction of scarves and?cozy sweaters. The switch from iced coffee to flavored lattes. And, of course, the start of football season. Like any good Texan, I look forward to football season from pretty much the moment the previous season ends. And, like any good University of Texas alum, on any given Saturday from September through January, you’ll find me sporting burnt orange.
I always try to be creative when styling my burnt orange and white. This is true for any school you attend ? search for?pieces beyond your school bookstore?s t-shirts.?Luckily for us Longhorn fans, it’s easy to find interesting?burnt orange pieces because we have so many great local designers and storefronts. I worked with two of them ? Longhorn Fashions and Pearl Southern Couture ??to style five unique game day looks for y’all.
How fun is this fringe crop top?! It’s also from Pearl Southern Couture and comes in a variety of school colors. Plus, not only is it good for game day, it would be great for festival wear. I chose some high waisted jeans and my caged sandals to round out this look. The Kendra Scott earrings add a touch of color.
Florals have made the transition from summer to fall, and this top from Longhorn Fashions captures the trend perfectly. The white snakeskin clutch, also from Longhorn Fashions, really makes the flowers pop.
It’s time to break out the booties! Ankle boots?add height without sacrificing comfort, and ?we all know comfort is key for game day. This flowy orange blouse?from Longhorn Fashions is perfect for layering once the chilly temps arrive, making it a perfect bootie companion. That gorgeous white stone necklace is from Jordan Loves James.
Don’t worry ? I didn’t forget about the accessories! Jordan Loves James, Amanda Deer Jewelry, and Longhorn Fashions?all have a gorgeous selection of Texas themed jewelry. And who doesn’t love some Texas themed jewelry?!
I love this gold Texas ring from Longhorn Fashions.
Here’s another look at the Texas ring, which I wore alongside this lovely longhorn cuff by Jordan Loves James. I can’t say enough good things about that cuff – it’s weighty, well-made, and so unique.
How adorable is this dainty “I Heart Texas” necklace from Amanda Deer Jewelry? It added just the right amount of sparkle to my look, and it’s perfect for layering.
Above is?another cuff by Jordan Loves James – this one is Texas shaped and is just as high-quality as its longhorn companion. Plus, this one is two-toned, so it can be easily worn with any of the other jewelry in your collection.
And just because I am slightly obsessed with it, below is another peek at that longhorn cuff.
