Alumni Status

We made a day-trip to Champaign last Saturday for the Illinois vs. ASU football game and we had such a blast! (Illinois beat ASU for those of you non-football-fans!) We had lunch at Firehaus (the bar I used to work at), met up with my parents and did some tailgating before the game! It was nice to be back on campus, but really weird because it was the first time I’d been back since graduation.

Hoping to go 4-0 tomorrow at home against Western Michigan! :)

Jacket: Nordstrom
Tee: J.Crew
Jeans: Paige
Boots: Steve Madden
Bag: Longchamp
Watch: Michael Kors (similar face) (similar band)

PS- Is it weird that I love football so much? Sometimes I think I might be a boy disguised in a girl’s body. But then I remember how much I like to shop and play dress up. :)

I hope I’m not boring you with my sports talk! I promise I’ll try to limit my Illini/Bears chit chat… (While we’re here… The Bears better beat the Packers on Sunday!)

Have a great weekend! Talk to ya Monday!

    As a Penn State alum, I can appreciate football games at a big school and what an event they truly are! Love your style and what a great blog. Longchamp has never let me down :)

      I’m glad you can relate with Big 10 football! :)

      And aren’t Lonchamps the best? My large size goes everywhere with me. Perfect computer bag!

    It’s funny to me that you’re such a girly girl but then you love football! At least you can bring style to tailgating. Love those boots!

      Thanks! Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2010. I wear them CONSTANTLY. Will probably have to get them re-soled by the end of this season. I refuse to get rid of them!

      Thank you! I saw your most recent “Tailgate Thursdays” post! I have quite a few things that are “cuter” Illinois gear, but I like creating my own orange and blue outfits, too!
