Classics

Lately I have been reaching for the classics in my closet. In my opinion, there's nothing better than having a white button down top, a good pair of denim and classic flats in your closet! During the week for work I am definitely a jeans and flats kinda girl. Being comfortable while at work is always necessary! 

Speaking of this outfit- I had recently cleaned out my closet and got rid of anything and everything that I didn't wear or that was looking a little dingy. I was in search of a new white button down and this Everly Top from Minx Asheville fit the bill! Also, I have seen denim with ankle zippers everywhere this fall and I am so glad I found these LOFT ones. They're the perfect length for flats and for booties this fall (thank goodness for petites!!) 

I hope everyone had a great weekend (and Monday!) This weekend was full with plans....and to think I thought I would be having a relaxing weekend...ha! On Friday I had the honor of taking Bre's bridal portraits, on Saturday Brian and I spent the day in Charlotte to hang out in uptown and have dinner with my dad for his birthday, and on Sunday celebrated Bre for her bridal shower! I can't believe my best friend gets married in 10 days!!!

Game Day with Jack Rogers

The early weeks of fall always leave me feeling a little reminiscent of my college days. I graduated from Appalachian State over two years ago, but fall still brings memories rushing back to me about the fall months spent in my little mountain town of Boone, North Carolina! Fall in the mountains was my absolute favorite part about college every year. The brightly colored leaves surrounded all of our campus with the mountains in the background, we all soaked up the last days of warmth before having to wear jackets and snow gear, and of course Appalachian Mountaineer Game Days! 

Game Days at Appalachian were a big to-do! It was a tradition to wake up every Saturday blasting the ASU fight song while drinking mimosas and getting decked out in our yellow, black, and gold. We would spend the afternoon tailgating at Duck Pond before entering The Rock for game time! Afterwards we would head across the street to Klondike, everyone's favorite hole-in-the-wall for some after game time fun!  

If you looked around at Duck Pond on Game Days you would see the two main staples that every girl had for game day, Jack Rogers or cowboy boots! Until it got so cold that I couldn't take it any longer, I was always a Jack Rogers girl on game day! I knew they were always classic and wouldn't leave my feet hurting at the end of the day! This is an outfit similar to what I would wear for game day, even now after graduating! Being that I'm blonde I have never been much of a "yellow person," so on game days I picked out more black, white, and gold pieces! I so wish I had the black & gold combo Jacks in college! These are not only perfect for ASU students but also for Steelers fans, Wake Forest fans, or anyone who loves a black and gold combo! :-)
