The First Day of Football Season + Target GIVEAWAY!

Plaid: J. Crew (similar here under $30) // Jeans: Loft // Sandals: Palm Beach Sandals // Apple Watch // Necklace: Target (old, similar here)

Goodness y’all… Thank you SO much for all your sweet comments and fun feedback on yesterday’s post! I have so much fun getting more personal with you and I’m looking forward to bringing you more posts that share more about me and my life behind the blog!

But today I am super excited because I get to talk to you about something else I am crazy passionate about- Gator football!! If you’re new around here, I’m a University of Florida alumni & I LIVE for college football season & cheering on my boys in orange and blue!! So what better way to kick off football season than talking about tailgate style?? 🙂

Now if you’re thinking, “Gentry, isn’t it too hot to wear jeans in Florida right now?”  You would be right! But at the beginning of the season no tailgate style is cute, because it ends up drenched in sweat (after all our stadium is called The Swamp)! ha! So today I’m sharing more “mid-season” style – when the weather finally cools off! Since I’m an alumni now (#SoOld) I like to play up the “preppy/collegiate” style and this button up is perfect for that! Paired with cuffed jeans and gold sandals, it’s a great look for partaking in all the tailgating fun before the game & cheering on my boys during all 4 quarters!

Plaid: J. Crew (similar here under $30) // Jeans: Loft // Sandals: Palm Beach Sandals // Apple Watch // Necklace: Target (old, similar here)


If you’re as excited about football season as I am, then be sure to check out today’s posts from two of my favorite gals: Chesson @ Magnolia & Main and Christina @ Christina Lea Loves! They have more football fun lined up!

And now for a great giveaway as a thank you to each of you for being such wonderful readers and friends:

    I am so excited that college football is back! I'm really hoping this tropical storm moves out by this weekend so we can enjoy the game and tailgating though. That definitely has me worried! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    Love your outfit! But as Whitney said above, I just can't like the Gator love. Or the Dawg love for that matter 😉 Go Gamecocks!! Happy Football, ladies!

    YAY for college football being back! I love this outfit – it'll be perfect for fall games & if I throw in some purple instead of blue, perfect for a Clemson game 🙂

    Such a cute look! When late summer hits I'm always looking for anything navy/white I can wear up in State College! Enjoy the start of the season!
