{orange power} how football inspires my style

It's no secret that this is my absolute favorite time of year.  I've been talking about it a lot lately!  Growing up in the South, Fall meant one thing:  football season...tailgates, cheering at the games, and after parties.  Football is king in the South. 

For my undergrad studies, I went to Oklahoma State University (did you see our incredible win over Texas A&M this weekend?! Go Cowboys!)  Our team colors are black and orange, so I'm constantly on the lookout for classic & sophisticated ways to incorporate these traditionally Halloween themed colors into my clothing and home design.  Over the years I've seen more and more glamorous pieces in this combination of beautifully rich orange and chic black.  I was born & bred a Cowboy so orange has always and will always be my favorite color.  Lucky for me, Pinterest has plenty of inspiration!

 

 
 Are ya'll sports fans?
What's your favorite team? and their colors?
What creative and stylish ways have you found
to incorporate it into your personal style?

Here's to touchdowns, slamdunks, and homeruns!

Two more things before you go:
Come with me to Big City Belle today for her Fall in Love series!
If you love this season, you'll love seeing all the fun over there.

I've become a Jets fan through my husband. When we go to the games, I make sure to wear a cute pair of sneakers - in Jets green of course! ;-)

I'm a huge football fan and my team is the Baltimore Ravens! Purple and gold are a little hard to incorporate as a color combo though :(

@Jen & @Lily, I'm glad you're liking the orange even though you don't love football! :)

@fancyfunction, I'm a Jets fan too!

@Viviana, so happy to hear you're a football fan too! you're right purple & gold is a tough combo but purple should be great on its own for fall!

thanks for stopping by ladies!

Mae, thanks so much for linking up! I love finding inspiration in all kinds of things. I am easily inspired! Ha. I love Halloween colors! And, I love how purple has been added as a Halloween color lately. My favorite colors are the combo of red and pink...Valentines day. :) Would you believe my most viewed post EVER is the football party post??? You are definitely NOT alone in your love for football! Have a great day! XO
