Illini Pride

Never thought I’d see the day where I was wearing orange pants, that’s for sure. I can’t even put my love for these into words. I saw them and pulled the trigger for the purchase within 2 minutes. How perfect for Illinois games! (Bears games, too!)

As if wearing orange pants wasn’t obnoxious enough, I added a fur snood. Let’s just say I got a lot of looks on Saturday. You better believe I didn’t take it off indoors. :)

My parents were in town this past weekend for the Illinois vs. UNLV basketball game at the United Center. Let’s not talk about the game though… it was pretty ugly. I wore this outfit shopping on Michigan Avenue during the day then to the basketball game in the afternoon.

Sweater: J.Crew
Fur Snood: Loft (similar)
Orange Jeans: Paige ‘Verdugo’
Necklace: J.Crew (similar)
Bracelet: J.Crew
Watch: Michael Kors

PS — A VERY Happy Birthday to my best friend, Nikki, and my roommate, Zac! Love you both. :)

    I almost wear a similar outfit today! Seriously, I almost reached for my blue Loft sweater and my rust colored F21 pants and would have absolutely paired it with my boots! Love it!

    I tried that snood on at Loft but felt like I was drowning/suffocating in it. How was it wearing it all day?

    I literally gasped when I saw the red-pants-fur-snood combo. GENIUS! You look so chic (and cozy)! I’m snatching one of those up ASAP.

    Hope you’re looking forward to a relaxing holiday, gf! :)
